Men and women alike, if you wear jewelry you know how much of a pain it can be to untangle necklaces or chains, find a matching earring, and keep all your accessories neatly organized. It’s also extremely easy to lose or misplace valuable pieces of jewelry if they are not stored properly. Here are some simple tips to keep all your baubles safe, sound, and shining bright.
How to Store Jewelry
The first thing you should do is take account of your storage space. Do you have a built-in jewelry box? A dresser top display? Or are your necklaces and earrings currently living in a pile at the bottom of your closet or in a drawer? Once you know where you want to store your jewelry, you can start to think about the best way to organize.
Now for necklaces or chains, consider hanging them on hooks or pegs. This will prevent them from getting tangled, and you’ll be able to see all your options at a glance. If you have dainty chains or delicate pendants, think about investing in jewelry organizers with compartments and dividers. You can find these online or at jewelry stores. This will keep your pieces from getting scratched or potentially damaged.
For storage that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional, try using decorative bowls or trays. You could either do a DIY project and make them yourself or find them at a home goods store. Place them on your dresser or vanity, and fill them with your favorite rings, bracelets, and brooches. Not only will this keep your jewelry organized, but it will also add a touch of glamour to your space.
For an inexpensive option, you can try out drawer organizers for jewelry. Similar to what you see at jewelry stores in glass cases, drawer organizers can be stackable and easily fit your entire collection. Look out for them online on Amazon or at home goods stores like Target. You can also find some relatively cheap jewelry armoires, or jewelry boxes online if you prefer the look.
Self Storage for Accessories
No matter what option you choose to store your jewelry, the most important thing is to take care of it properly. Be sure to clean your pieces regularly, and store them in a cool, dry place. With some effort and care, your jewelry will stay shining for years to come.
If you want to have a place where you know it will cool and dry 24/7, consider renting a climate-controlled self storage unit to store your jewelry, accessories and other things like art or furniture that can be damaged by extreme temperatures. At StorageMart and Manhattan Mini Storage we offer climate controlled as well as regular self storage units at affordable prices. Try out our Self Storage Calculator and rent online!
