Jewellery adds a great finishing touch to any look and there are a lot of great pieces now available for men to wear as well. Just like with clothes and shoes, storing jewellery will take some space, but if you do it the right way, you can guarantee it will stay in good condition for longer and will provide you with enjoyment for a long time to come.
Here are five tips to help you store jewellery:
1. Keep Them In Sight
If you want to guarantee you use jewellery and always find what you are looking for, it is a good idea to keep all of your everyday items in sight. This will ensure you don’t have to search for your jewellery when you’re in a rush in the morning. It will also help you make sure that you don’t loose the jewellery either.
There are a lot of jewellery boxes that can look nice on your dressing table or that you can even keep in the bathroom. Just make sure you don’t tuck away your jewellery someplace remote and hidden. Look for more inspiration at the Container Store.
2. Store Individually
With larger items like necklaces and bracelets, it is a good idea to store them individually to guarantee they don’t get tangled together and end up getting scratched or even break down. Of course, it can be useful to store your jewellery in the boxes that they came in but you can also be creative if you want to keep it out more in the open.
For instance, you could use old watercolour palettes to store smaller items and buy a special jewellery rack to hang bracelets and necklaces.
3. Use Soft Storage
You should consider using paper tissue or other soft fabric in your jewellery storage system to guarantee the metal doesn’t get scratched. Even if you store items individually, it can still be helpful to use a soft material since a hard surface may end up scratching the metal.
In case you have thrown away the original boxes, you can try to add pieces from things like old clothing to soften the boxes you are using.
4. Buy Quality Products
In order to guarantee your jewellery will last a long time, it is important to select quality pieces. There are a lot of different metals in jewellery and if you want to get something that is scratchproof and will therefore make storing simpler, you should consider getting tungsten.
There are many great men’s tungsten bands that you can look into online. You can find them on sites such as Men’s Tungsten Online.
5. Remember To Keep Them Clean
You should also occasionally go through your jewellery and polish it. The golden and silver pieces will especially require occasional polishing. It can prove helpful to learn some tricks to take care of your jewellery and the key thing is to not use any harsh chemicals on them.
With some regular polishing you can ensure you increase the longevity a lot.
