How to store your jewellery correctly

Most women have a collection of jewellery whether it be a few necklaces, earrings and bracelets bought to accessorise particular outfits or jewellery that has been handed down from generation to generation and may be quite valuable but storing the jewellery pieces correctly means that they are easy to find when required and that they stay looking good for many years.

A jewellery box of some sort is often the most popular receptacle for the pieces but needs to be suitable for the amount of jewellery you have. If you have a lot of necklaces it is a good idea to have some way of storing them where they are hanging down so that you can see your collection easily and so that they do not get tangled up with each other.

Earrings can be quite fiddly to store but some jewellery boxes have sections where stud earrings can be put through a holder with the butterfly holding them firm from the back.

Care needs to be taken with expensive gold and silver jewellery as if left out they can quickly become tarnished, so these particular pieces are probably better stored in small boxes. If the pieces do become dull and discoloured a cloth impregnated with silver or gold polish can be used to brighten them and restore the jewellery back to its former condition.
