Have you ever noticed that your metal jewelry develops an odd smell after a while? That’s tarnish, and it’s not only riddled with bacteria but it can also damage your jewelry over time. On top of regularly disinfecting and polishing your jewelry, you’ll also need to store golds, silvers, platinums, and other metals separately to decrease the chances of tarnish spreading. Higher quality jewelry will tarnish much slower than anything made out of nickle or copper, so investing in good quality pieces like our collection is a great way to keep your pieces in great condition.
Despite wanting your jewelry to be safe from oxidation, you still want to see your beautiful collection. So instead of hiding them away in a jewelry box or drawer; find a translucent storage space made from Pyrex or acrylic. You can find see-through storage on sites like Etsy and eBay, and many jewelry sites offer their own too. Alternatively, another awesome option is an Armoire Mirror that keeps your jewelry on display when open, but hidden when closed. Having your collection right there with a body length mirror means you don’t have to keep walking back and forth to a wall mirror to see which jewelry matches your outfit.
One thing that’s better than a translucent jewelry box is a translucent jewelry cabinet. Not only do they look way prettier on hooks, but it’s so much easier to see them. Our pieces like THORA and FALKOR VI are majestic when hung up due to their large chains and pendants, rather than bundled up awkwardly in a little box somewhere. You can also hang your pieces on busts or display stands, and stick them in a cabinet with glass windows.
It may be tempting, especially after a long day, to place your jewelry on your nightstand. But it’s not a good idea. For one, do you actually put it away the next day or do they just build up and build up? Secondly, think about the oxidation again. The more you leave your jewelry out the more you’ll have to polish them in the near future, and ew, deal with the dust. Trust us, it’ll save you a lot of bother and time in the long run.
