How to Store Fashion Jewelry

Are you constantly searching for the best way to store your jewelry to prevent it from tarnishing? If the current state of your collection is in disarray and you’re struggling to keep your jewelry looking as elegant as ever, then you’ve come to the right place.

Best Tips to Properly Store Fashion Jewelry

Oftentimes, the best way to store jewelry depends on a few factors like the materials used, type of jewelry, and how much each piece is worth. For an in-depth guide of tips and tricks to use to keep your collection looking fresh, stay tuned!

Clean Each Piece Before Storage

The first step before putting your jewelry away for the night is to rub each piece down with a lint-free cloth to remove any residue or dust particles from the day. Keep the cloth in your jewelry box so you can swipe down your pieces quickly and build a routine.

Sometimes a cloth is not enough, especially if your jewelry pieces haven’t been cleaned in a while. If you know you have a bit of free time coming up, schedule a time to clean your jewelry pieces that need a touch-up. Before you get cleaning, it’s essential to research what remedies are best for cleaning certain pieces of jewelry

For the most part, you’ll want to find mild soap and warm water along with a soft cloth or brush that’s guaranteed to get the job done. This will help remove sweat, lotion, makeup, water residue, and any other elements. It’s important to note--make sure all of your pieces are completely dry before storing.

Separate Pieces By Metal

Precious metals should be on one side, fashion jewelry on the other side. Even with precious metals, separate the gold from the silver and for fashion jewelry, put copper pieces separate from those made from stainless steel.

When you’re not separating pieces properly, the metals interact with each and can eventually ruin the luster on the pieces.

Maintain a Consistent Temperature

Storing your jewelry in high humidity areas is the main factor that speeds up the tarnishing process. It’s best to try running an air conditioner or dehumidifier in the room your jewelry lives to prevent tarnishing even further.

Next, you’ll want to find a spot in your home that remains a consistent temperature. It’s important to not store your jewelry directly next to a heating vent or window where moisture can easily travel into. The more consistent the temperature, the better it will benefit your collection.

Store in a Dark and Delicate Space

Depending on your collection of jewelry, there are a couple of different tips you can use for storage. Fine jewelry should be stored in a secure location and away from direct sunlight as the UV rays can cause jewelry to tarnish over time. It’s also important to secure these pieces in a dark and dry location when they’re being used--make sure you’re following proper storage protocol.

As for silver jewelry, it does best when it’s stored in a box that’s lined with felt. The felt helps absorb excess moisture and prevents premature tarnishing. For larger pieces, it might be better to store them separately inside a felt pouch or wrapped in a silver polishing cloth to limit exposure to the air.

Make Sure Jewelry is Dry

Before any jewelry is properly stored away, make sure it is completely dry. As mentioned above, moisture can cause the metal to tarnish and degrade much quicker. For instance, if you wore a silver necklace in a rainstorm, be sure to dry it off before putting it away.

If you’re storing damp jewelry for a prolonged period of time--no matter which type it is--it can cause issues with premature or excessive tarnishing.

Final Thoughts

Overall, there are a ton of accessories and products to use to store jewelry in a manner that prevents the tarnishing process. When it comes to pieces that you wear regularly, those can be put in plain sight that they’re easy to access in the morning, but you’ll want to make sure they’re getting cleaned on a normal basis. As a reminder, be sure to put your lotions, makeup, or perfumes on before your jewelry to avoid any clogging or dirtying of the metals.
