  • Everyday jewelry: Those types of jewelry are the ones you would use every day and you would probably prefer to find them with ease. Therefore you need them somewhere you can grab & go quickly. This could be a chic dish on your countertop, a jewelry storage box, or a vanity table.
  • Outfit jewelry: Just like our bags and shoes do, every piece of jewelry needs a match in our wardrobe. As the name suggests itself, these jewelry types should be visible and be at service with special outfits. You can then store them by color, style (separating bracelets, necklaces, or rings and keeping them together), or in the set if you fancy wearing them together. 
  • Expensive or fine jewelry: All of your precious and expensive jewelry should be stored away from sunlight and ideally under room temperature where it is also dry and away from humidity. Additionally, there is another thing that every expert would agree on: Different types of metals need to be stored in different places or compartments. Protecting your precious jewelry’s first-day shine therefore highly depends on how you tend them. You can keep them in soft pouches, and boxes they have come with to prevent any damage, or corrosion as your jewelry can brush up or rub against each other if they all share the same room. Especially your fine chunky jewelry such as Monaco Chain Classic Pave Lock women’s choker, that you cannot do without needs their separate boxes or pouches. You can also make use of multilayered jewelry storage organizer boxes to protect them from dust and to keep them clean.

If you are looking for options to create jewelry storage for drawers, you can make use of fabric-lined boxes, and trays as well. Fabric will keep your jewelry safe and prevent any damage or minimal scratches that can happen in time. Alternatively, you can make use of decorative boxes, and drawer dividers as well. If you are a true collector of jewelry and wish to have a dedicated place for them, you can create a jewelry storage cabinet for your precious gems.

We have listed how you can store all types of jewelry at home. Another tip that might come in handy is knowing how to store and pack your jewelry while you are moving or on the move. Jewelry can easily get tangled or damaged while traveling. We definitely suggest keeping them in separate boxes or compartments that you can take with you. It is also important to keep them away from your clothing so that they would not be snagging or damaging them. However, wearing the most expensive jewelry you own or having them on you is always the best idea while you are traveling. In this way, you would still be holding onto your precious jewelry or stones even if your luggage gets lost or damaged.
