When storing away your jewelry away for the night, the following tips will help make sure the jewelry box is put to good use in storing your jewelry. By properly putting away your jewelry in the jewelry box, it will less likely become damaged.
For necklaces and bracelets, try to have them hung on hooks in a jewelry box or armoire that offers it. If there are no hooks, you should still keep the clasps fastened to avoid entanglement of the jewelry.
Before you put that valuable jewelry away in the jewelry box, you should make sure it is DRY! This is vital to keeping your jewelry safe in its jewelry box.
