Tips For Storing Jewelry


You can never own too much jewelry until you can't figure out how to store it. These are some helpful tips for keeping all your baubles within reach and damage-free.

Fine Jewelry
These investment pieces require gentle care and storage to keep them looking their best. It is best to avoid high-humidity environments, like a bathroom, to precious metals tarnish-free. Placing delicate jewelry in containers or drawers fitted with velvet liners and separating your pieces will prevent them from touching and scratching each other. Great care is necessary when storing pearls and gemstones such as emeralds because they are soft and porous, making them especially vulnerable to damage. 

Costume Jewelry
Costume pieces do not hold up well when worn daily. Instead, they are better suited for occasional use to keep them looking their best. A downside of this type of jewelry is its susceptibility to tarnish, which is preventable by placing it in air-free storage bags or wrapping it with tarnish-free paper. Some of the same methods for storing fine jewelry can also apply when storing fashion jewelry, such as separating pieces to prevent them from touching and scratching.


Every-Day Jewelry
Jewelry that is worn every day does not need elaborate storage. It can remain out on your dressing table or nightstand where it is easily accessible. Of course, some considerations still apply. For example, be sure to position necklaces carefully to prevent their chains from knotting and becoming entangled with earrings and bracelets. Ring dishes not only keep several rings within reach but can also accommodate earrings; however, they are not meant for chains. For in-drawer storage of daily pieces, be sure to use compartment trays with velvet liners that keep each piece visible at a glance.

Proper jewelry storage can ensure all your pieces' longevity and make it easy to find what you want to wear.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
