tip and trick on jewelry maintenance at home: Store your jewelry properly

  1. Store each piece separately: To avoid scratches and damage, it's important to store each piece of jewelry separately. This can be done by using a jewelry box with compartments, a soft pouch, or even a zip-lock bag.

  2. Keep jewelry away from sunlight and heat: Exposure to sunlight and heat can cause gemstones to fade and metals to tarnish. Store your jewelry in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, such as a dresser drawer or closet.

  3. Keep your jewelry dry: Moisture can cause certain metals to tarnish and gemstones to become damaged. Avoid storing your jewelry in a damp place, such as a bathroom, and remove your jewelry before showering or swimming.

  4. Use anti-tarnish strips: Anti-tarnish strips can be added to your jewelry storage container to help prevent tarnishing. These strips absorb moisture and sulfur in the air, which can cause tarnishing.

  5. Be careful when traveling with jewelry: When traveling, store your jewelry in a secure, padded container to prevent damage. Avoid packing your jewelry with other items that could scratch or damage it.

  6. Store valuable pieces in a safe: If you have valuable jewelry, consider storing it in a safe. This will provide additional protection against theft, loss, or damage.

By following these tips, you can store your jewelry properly and help protect it from damage or tarnishing.
