It’s not sufficient to own the finest jewelry, it’s also necessary to maintain them well. What’s the use of having faded silver necklaces or lusterless gold chains or scratched beaded bracelets? Even worse, imagine possessing only one half of your best pairs of earrings.
Keeping jewelry clean and organized will result in lesser woes. You can dazzle and shine at a social gathering only if you’re actually able to wear the jewelry you own. Just like your wardrobe and home office, let your jewelry drawer remain clutter-free and clean.
Shine on forever
Whether you own two pieces of ornaments or twenty, they need to be cleaned and polished on a regular basis. Ensure that you purchase a set of cleaning agents required for the purpose of maintaining various kinds of jewelry.
In its place
Allocate a separate place for different categories of jewelry pieces, depending on your personal collection. If you own many types of ornaments in various colors and shapes, divide them according to usage.
You can keep the jewelry you wear on a daily basis in one box; another box can be allocated to ornaments worn for parties and on dates; a whole other box can be dedicated to special pieces like family heirlooms, antique jewelry and expensive, delicate ornaments.
Even a small jewelry collection can be well-organized. Sort the pieces according to type such as earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and rings. Store pairs of earrings together so that you don’t have to look for them when you’re in a hurry.
Means and methods
Jewelry boxes are the best way to organize your collection and keep it safe from dust and dirt as well as prying eyes. If you can’t buy jewelry boxes, simply reuse boxes and tins of chocolates, gifts items, watches etc.
Bracelets and necklaces are best hung on hooks as they tend to get tangled. You can use a cork board and hang the pieces on it. This can be used to keep earrings too. Rings, though small, should not be stuffed together in a tiny box.
Store jewelry well and sparkle forever!
