10 Ways to Store Jewelry So They Don’t Stain

Separate jewelry from metal
Take an inventory of the jewellery. Keep costume jewelry away from silver and precious metals, and keep silver jewelry away from precious metals. This separation helps prevent the metal from staining when it accidentally comes into contact.

Make sure the jewelry is clean and dry
Before storing any jewelry, make sure it is clean and dry. Moisture can cause metal to tarnish or degrade more quickly. We recommend removing stains from jewelry that will be stored for more than a week. Premature problems and excessive staining can occur when storing dirty jewelry for a long time.

Clean most jewelry with this method
Mix a few drops of mild detergent and warm water. Let stand for a while in the solution and then brush with a bristle toothbrush to remove dirt. Dry the jewelry with a lint-free cloth, removing the stain with a silver polishing cloth.

Lower the humidity level and maintain a consistent temperature
Silica packaging can also be placed in a jewelry box to absorb excess moisture. Find a place with a consistent temperature in your home and don’t place the jewelry box directly on top of a hot vent. The more consistent the temperature, the better. Also consider storing the jewelry box in an interior cupboard that is always dark and cool, or you can hang the jewelry box in the wardrobe door.

Store precious metals in a dark and dry place
The felt helps absorb excess moisture and prevents stains from forming. For larger pieces of jewelry it is best to store them separately in a cloth bag or wrapped in a silver polishing cloth to limit exposure to air. With proper storage, silver jewelry only needs to be polished at least twice a year to remove stains.

Noble jewelry
Good jewelry is better kept in a safe place so as not to be easily robbed. It is important to store precious metals out of direct sunlight as some colors can be damaged by prolonged exposure to UV light. Prepare a place on your dresser or nightstand to store jewelry you wear every day, such as wedding rings or diamond buttons.

Jewelry storage tips

Diamond
Store expensive jewelry in such a way that the pieces don’t touch each other. Diamonds can scratch stones and other metals.

Pearl
Store in a wooden box with lining. Never store pearls in plastic bags or boxes as this can damage them.

Costume Jewelry
Costume jewelry, fashion jewelry made from cheap imitation gemstones, is generally safe to store in the open. However, if you want to store costume jewelry for a long time, apply the same rules as fine jewelry. Keep jewelry away from the inside of the jewelry box and make sure to keep the humidity low and the temperature consistent.
