Jewelry Cases and Your Jewelry
Jewelry cases or otherwise known as jewelry boxes are important because they safely store our precious jewelries. A typical jewelry case is usually rectangular in shape though we can find them in a variety of shapes nowadays. It may or may not have a mirror on the inside of its upper lid. The lower half is usually made up of specialized compartments or trays to store different types of jewelry like necklaces, earrings, bracelets, anklets, rings, bangles, etc. The interior is usually lined with velvet and it has either a clasp with lock, numbered combination or any other form of lock to ensure the safety of the contents.
Jewelry cases come in a variety of colors usually in simply shades. Others are even designed with beautifully crafted embellishments. There are new ones and vintage ones as well. There are different box styles for women, men and even children. Little girls just love jewelry cases with music boxes and ballerinas dancing inside when the case is being opened. Other styles for adult women even look like little cupboards that are tall with stacked drawers to properly organize your stones and gems.
While it may be true that a jewelry case will definitely safely store your jewelry, it is important to note that you also have to properly take care of them to preserve its value. You should store your jewelry inside jewelry boxes or cases that are lined with a soft material to avoid it from being scratched. If you store them in boxes without lining, the tendency is for it to be damaged against the impact of a hard surface. You can substitute a jewelry case with soft fabric pouches. It is importantly that you store them separately to avoid scratches. This is the reason for the compartments. Keep it away from heat and moisture that may damage some stones. It is best that you buy jewelry cases with locks for added security.
It is ideal to have your jewelry professionally cleaned at least once a year. Avoid it from being exposed to perfumes or cosmetics that can sometimes cause discoloration. When you travel always carry with you your jewelry cases in your handbag or carry on luggage and not in your suitcases.
We believe that the purchase of good jewelries is a good investment. To protect your investment properly take care of them and store it safely for you to enjoy them for many years to come.
