It's that time of the year for you when you decide to take out all your jewelry and place them properly because let's be real here, they are all jumbled up in one another, and you can't find the right piece for any outfit.
Well, thank heavens you landed right here because I'm going to tell you what is the right way to store and pack your jewelry so that the shine always remains like new. Let's get right into it.
1. Classify Your Jewelry Separately As Per Metal Type
Once all your accessories are out, separate them by the kind of metals they are composed by. Make a separate pile for metal, silver, sterling, and so on.
When different kinds of metals come in contact, they end up damaging and tarnishing each other. Also, separation will help you remember where you kept what when you need it.
2. Clean Your Jewelry Properly Before Packing It
Just separation will not do the trick; the next thing you need to do is clean your jewelry. Now, all metals are cleaned in different ways.
For some, you might need just water, some would need lukewarm water and dish soap solution, and the others would be just fine with a bit of toothbrush brushing action.
When cleaning, make sure you aren't too harsh on these delicate pieces as they might break or get damaged. So yeah, jewelry separation should be done when you are in a pleasant mood.
3. Airtight Containers Can Do Wonders
Almost all of us lose the box or pouch that the jewelry came in. If that's the case with you, too, then using airtight containers is the best option. This is because this way, your jewelry stays away from any unnecessary Moisture and, Air.
Constant exposure to oxygen and excessive water will tarnish your jewelry in an instant, and they will turn up black.
