Taking proper care of your jewelry is essential to ensure the longevity and quality of your precious pieces. As such, it is important to store your jewelry correctly in order to protect them from damage, tarnishing, and discoloration. Here are some tips on how to store your jewelry well.
1.When not wearing for a long time, Keep Your Jewelry in an Airtight Container
For jewelry that you don’t like, that you can’t wear due to work reasons, and that you don’t want to wear from your ex-boyfriend and don’t want to throw it away...well, in short, jewelry that you don’t wear for a year or so, you can put it in a sealed bag.
2.Separate Different Types of Jewelry
Different types of jewelry should be stored separately in order to prevent scratching or wearing each other.
The hardness of most gemstones is not the same. If they are put together, they will wear each other. For example, if the diamond with the highest hardness is put together with the pearl necklace with lower hardness, the pearl may be scratched unconsciously. Gemstones may be softer than metal pieces, so they should be kept apart. Additionally, storing necklaces and bracelets separately will help keep them from getting tangled up.
3.Clean Your Jewelry Before Storing
It is important to clean your jewelry before storing it away. This will help remove dirt, oils, and other debris that could potentially damage the pieces. Use a soft cloth and mild soap and water to gently wipe away any residue. If the piece is particularly delicate or requires a more thorough cleaning, you can use specialized jewelry cleaning solutions available at most stores.
4.Untangle Knots Before Storing
If you have knotted jewelry, it is important to untangle the knots before storing. Thick chains are not easy to knot, but thin chains are super easy to knot.
When encountering a chain knot, there is a super easy-to-use method to untie the chain:
use a needle or toothpick to insert a small gap between the chains, and then "bounce" gently to make the gap between the chain and the chain more elastic The bigger it is, the bigger it gets. Avoid applying too much force while doing so, as it requires patience.
If it can't be solved, it can only be sent to the manufacturer for recycling and melting.
5.Store Jewelry Out of Direct Sunlight
Storing your jewelry away from direct sunlight is another important step in preserving its quality and appearance. Direct sunlight can cause discoloration, fading, and even warping of certain types of materials. It is best to keep your jewelry in a dark and dry place.
6.When traveling, the storage box should be harder
When traveling, although there is natural scenery as the background, jewelry is still needed to set it off. If you want to take several items out, you can buy a small storage box for travel, but it is recommended to buy a slightly harder shell, because it may be crushed by other luggage. A girl put an 18k gold bracelet in a storage box to check in. After getting off the plane and picking up her luggage, she found that the bracelet was so deformed that she couldn't recognize her parents.
There are also some girls who use pill boxes to hold some small rings and earrings, which is also very good.
Following these simple tips can help ensure that your jewelry looks great and lasts for years to come. Make sure to invest in an airtight container, keep different types of jewelry separate, and clean your pieces before storing. Additionally, untangle knots before putting them away, and store jewelry out of direct sunlight to prevent damage. By taking proper care of your jewelry, you can keep them looking beautiful for many years to come.
