Store Jewelry Safely | Diamond Source of Virginia

Remember that diamonds can scratch other materials, even diamonds.

  • Jewelry storage boxDo not put diamond jewelry items together where they might scratch each other.
  • Soft stones like pearls, opals and emeralds can easily be scratched if mixed with other jewelry.
  • Keep your precious pieces in a fabric-lined jewel case, or a box with compartments or dividers. If you prefer to use ordinary boxes, wrap each piece individually in tissue paper.
  • Do not store pearls in plastic bags since this will dull their surface.

Never trust putting jewelry in your pockets. Even pockets with zippers can be susceptible to opening or have a hole in the bottom.

Don’t leave your ring on the rim of a sink when you remove it to wash your hands. It can easily slip down the drain.

Pottery-Barn-Jewelry-storageWhen not wearing jewelry, put it in a secure place, such as a home safe or safe-deposit box. Jewelry boxes and dresser drawers, as well as almost any other spot in bedrooms, are probably the first places a thief will look for your valuables.

Be careful of your hiding place if others in your house are not aware of it. Hiding jewelry in the refrigerator is not a wise idea if someone mistakenly throws out that container.
