Spring Cleaning Your Jewelry Collection? The Do's and Don'ts of Organizing Jewelry
Have you ever noticed that as soon as you start organizing your jewelry collection, you wish there was a way to keep it that way? There is—and it's easier than you think. This guide will help take the stress out of organizing your jewelry and allow you to enjoy it for years to come!
Use a Jewelry Organizer.
Jewelry organizers are a great way to keep your jewelry organized, safe, and easy to find. They come in a range of sizes and styles so you can find one that fits your needs exactly. Jewelry organizers can be used for storing bracelets, necklaces, and rings (and earrings!).
They're also available in many materials including wood, metal, or plastic with various features such as drawers or compartments for storing different items separately or sections for organizing by color or style. You can even get a jewelry organizer with lights so it's easier to see what's inside when you open the lid!
Label Your Jewelry.
Labeling your jewelry is an easy way to keep track of what you own. Labels can be made using a label maker, a permanent marker, or sticky note and tape. The best way to label your pieces is by storing them in separate compartments within a box or drawer (if you want to display your jewelry).
If you have many necklaces and bracelets, consider purchasing one of these organizers with slots for each piece:
Create Different Storage Areas for Different Types of Jewelry.
Before you start organizing your jewelry, it's important to think about how you want to store each piece. There are many ways to organize jewelry, but here are a few guidelines:
- Create different storage areas for different types of jewelry. For example, earrings and necklaces can be stored in separate drawers or boxes so they don't tangle with one another. You might also want a place where all the bracelets from each arm will fit neatly together (like on an armoire).
- Keep storage areas easy-to-access and easy-to-clean. Having multiple drawers is great because it allows you to keep things organized by category--but if these drawers aren't easily accessible when needed, then all that organization won't do much good! Similarly, keeping everything clean is key; otherwise, mold could grow on any damp surfaces like those found inside some wooden boxes or trays.
Take the Time to Clean Your Jewelry.
- Clean your jewelry regularly.
- Avoid harsh chemicals like bleach or ammonia when cleaning your jewelry, as they can damage it over time.
- Use a soft cloth to wipe down your pieces, and then thoroughly rinse them with warm water afterwards before drying with another soft cloth.
Store Each Piece of Jewelry in its Own Spot.
You might be tempted to store all of your jewelry in one place, but this is not a good idea. Jewelry should be stored separately from other items such as scarves or belts. Have your jewelry easy to find, especially when sharing a place with another person.
- Use a jewelry organizer to keep everything in its place. This will help reduce clutter in any space (like an office) and keep everything organized for easy access when it comes time to wear/use the pieces again!
It's Easier than You Think to Keep Your Jewelry Organized and Safe.
