Jewelry Storage, Part 1: Protect Your Necklaces From Damage

A few years ago, I reached for a favorite anniversary gift to wear to dinner: a lovely diamond pendant on a very delicate gold chain. My dismayed “Oh No!” brought my husband running, and I felt awful when I confessed that my messy jewelry box had resulted in two ugly knots in my beautiful necklace.

I promised myself to reorganize my jewelry box that weekend, and over the next week or so, I’m going to share the tips and tricks that have kept my baubles safe ever since. Today, in homage to my anniversary gift, I’ll start with how to store your necklaces!
*************************

Most jewelry boxes give you no option to keep your gold and silver chains neat untangled. Your only real choice is to wrap them up carefully before putting them into the jewelry box, though frankly most of us don’t always take the time to do that.

My solution? A hanging bracelet and necklace organizer with Velcro loops to secure each piece of jewelry safely. Hanging loops and bars are an excellent option to keep your necklaces and chains tangle-free, and they can hang on a wall, on the back of a door, or be a part of a jewelry armoire. An armoire that provides hooks for hanging your necklaces is another great solution, and really, it doesn’t get any easier than that if you’d rather not go the DIY route. Just remember: when storing your necklace is as easy as hanging it on a hook, there is no excuse for dropping it on the dresser where it can get damaged or lost.

Here are a couple of my favorites that we carry:

Acrylic Necklace Tower

Over Door Mirrored Armoire

100 Piece Jewelry Hanger

Next week, I’ll tell you how I organize my rings, and I’ll share some of the products I’ve found for our store that I think are really stand-out!

    I love the over-the-door jewelry armoire! Multi-purpose organizers are great space savers.
