If you are like most women across America, your jewelry box is most likely cluttered and unorganized. However, getting it organized is easier that you might think. It is also very important. Storing jewelry properly will help ensure it will last for generations to come. The right organization will also allow you to see your jewelry so you can wear it more regularly. Here are some simple tips to getting your jewelry box worthy of the jewels you put in it:
- DON’T JUMBLE YOUR JEWELRY
Always store your jewelry in a clean, dry place. Keep your jewelry in a fabric-lined jewelry case, or in a box with numerous compartments and dividers. If you prefer to use ordinary boxes, wrap each piece individually in soft tissue paper. This keeps your jewelry untangled and will help keep it from tarnishing. The problem with a lot of jewelry boxes is that they don’t have enough compartments and that causes your jewelry to get jumbled together. Look for a style with many little compartments over the styles that have a few larger sections.
- SEPARATE YOUR EVERYDAY JEWELRY
Jewelry that is worn often can be placed in a smaller jewelry box or in jewelry trays. Find a box or tray that can be kept accessible. Find one that matches your style so it can be left on top of a dresser. Many women don’t wear their beautiful pieces of jewelry because they overlook them or accessing them is difficult. Keeping jewelry accessible will help you find what you need and remind you of what you have. Keep in mind however, that a safe is still your best bet for your irreplaceable gems.
- HANG THEM UP
There are a variety of organizers that have a hanger like hook with numerous clear pouches. Those styles are a great way to keep your earrings separate and visible. Place one pair of earrings in each pouch to ensure that the posts will not scratch the other earrings. Hang them on the back of your closet door or even hanging in your closet.
Implementing these simple tips will makeover your jewelry box and ensures you will be able to enjoy your jewelry for years to come.
