How To Store Your Jewelry

June 18, 2016 2 min read 0 Comments

How do you store your jewelry when you're not wearing it? Do you use a jewelry tree, throw it on your dresser in a rush, or leave it out in a cute jewelry dish? Although these sound like a great idea and an easy solution to storing your jewels, they are actually not the best way to keep your jewelry looking fresh and new.

We all love new jewels don't we?! They're so shiny and sparkly and perfectly pretty. But, as time goes on your jewelry tends to darken and lose their luster. No one likes that. But, there is a really simple way to keep your jewelry looking brand new. The reasons why your jewelry darkens/tarnishes is because of exposure to oxygen and light. If you keep your jewelry out of the way of air and light, you will easily be able to keep your jewelry looking like new for a long time to come.

The first step is to put your jewelry in airtight, resealable bags. When you purchase your jewelry from us, we always pack it in a small sealed bag that is perfect for you to store your jewelry in. You can purchase these bags locally in a craft supply store or dollar store if you don't have any on hand. 

One main thing to remember is to always leave your necklace clasp outside of the bag like we've shown in the above picture. This will prevent your chain from getting tangled, and I know you definitely don't want to spend hours picking apart knotted chains!

The final step is to keep your jewelry in a box or container that is away from direct sunlight. You can also store your jewelry in one of the boxes that we package your order with!

Keeping your jewelry away from light and air with these simple tips will add new life and longevity to the pieces that you adore.


There you have it. Simple and easy ways to keep your jewelry looking amazing!
