How to Store Jewellery

Even the best quality jewellery can become dull or damaged. Knowing the cause is the key to protecting your jewellery before it happens. Improper storage is one of the biggest reasons your jewellery becomes unwearable, from tangled chains to tarnished metal. But this is easily avoided when you know the best way to store your jewellery to keep them safe and tangle-free.

Use a Jewellery Storage Box

By using a jewellery box, you'll find your jewellery will stay looking bright and shiny for longer. Chains won't get tangled and earrings won't get lost either. By storing your jewellery in a storage box, you'll protect it from the common causes of tarnishing and tangling. A high-quality jewellery box will protect your jewellery from all the main causes of damage, ensuring your jewellery stays looking its best for longer.

Our jewellery storage features two jewellery boxes. A compact two-layer jewellery box and a mini travel jewellery box. Both have a durable, waterproof exterior with a moisture proof interior to protect jewellery from scratching or tarnishing. Our jewellery boxes are designed to be compact and portable so you can organise and store your jewellery whether at home or while travelling. We include an anti-tarnish square with every jewellery box to ensure your jewellery stays in perfect condition.

Use a Necklace Layering Clasp

One of the easiest ways to damage your jewellery is when wearing them. Chains can become tangled together, or snag on your clothing. To prevent this from happening, always put your jewellery on after getting dressed and before undressing.

If you enjoy layering necklaces, the simplest solution to avoid tangles is to use a necklace detangler clasp. It's been specifically designed to keep layered necklaces safe and tangle-free. You can put on and take off multiple necklaces on at a time, without fiddling with lots of clasps. You can even store your layered chains on the detangler clasp until the next time you wear them.

Take a Jewellery Travel Storage Box on Trips

Travelling with jewellery without the proper storage is a surefire way for your favourite pieces to get broken or damaged. With a stuffed suitcase and limited luggage, your jewellery is the first thing to get lost in transit. Thankfully there are ways to keep your wear-everywhere jewellery safe while travelling. Want to know more about travelling with your jewellery? These tangle-free jewellery travel hacks will help.

Our mini travel jewellery storage box is every bit at sturdy as our larger jewellery storage box. Not only has it been designed for travel with its durable firm exterior to protect against spills and squashing. The interior features plenty of space for your must-have jewellery essentials despite its compact size. The travel storage box has padded compartments and an elasticated pocket to store necklaces, rings, and earrings.

Have a Catch-All Trinket Dish

Even though we all know we should take our jewellery off and store it in a jewellery box while we workout or sleep, we don't always do it. Having a few catch-all trinket dishes around your home will solve this problem and prevent your jewellery from accidental damage. Whenever you're just about to do something you shouldn't with your jewellery on, you can quickly remove it to store on a trinket dish temporarily.

This storage option is especially useful for your everyday jewellery essentials; the pieces you rarely take off. Keep a trinket dish by the side of your bed, in the bathroom, or near the front door - anywhere you're likely to need to take off your jewellery in a rush. You'll prevent your most-loved jewellery pieces from getting damaged or lost.
