Your jewellery says a lot about you. The ultimate accessory, it’s a reflection of who you are, as a person. Our jewellery is precious to us. Maybe it has sentimental value or is expensive. Whatever the reason, make sure you keep it safe and secure.
It is also important to have your earrings, necklaces, bracelets and other valuable items valued and insured to protect you financially in the event of theft, damage or loss. Jewellery Insurance can also give you peace of mind should the worst happen.
There are literally thousands of jewellery boxes on the market. Various configurations in storage compartments, designs and differing shapes are available. Before deciding on a jewellery storage solution, make sure it is able to keep your precious items safe from damage and safely away from prying eyes. You are better having a lockable jewellery box – especially if you have a daughter! Mum’s jewellery box is one of the first places of interest to a young girl, so it is wise to prevent easy access to it. You don’t want your little girl trying on your most precious jewellery, as she will no doubt be unaware of its value.
If you decide on a lockable jewellery box, take a look inside to ensure there is no sharp or damaging edges which could be exposed to your precious items. Soft to touch with a luxurious feeling, the lining should provide a safe home for your jewellery. Always make sure your box has enough compartments – don’t overcrowd each compartment or your jewellery may damage each other. Dedicated compartments help to stop this from happening and so to increase the protection for your valuables, buy a jewellery box that has all these characteristics.
If the area in which you live has a high crime and burglary rate, you will want to store your jewellery box in a safe place. Storing your box out of view will sometimes convince burglars that there is nothing of worth to find. However, purchasing a little safe may put your mind further at ease. Safes can also be used for storing other valuables including passports. The likelihood you’ll be robbed is minimal however, having peace of mind and a sense of security can be worth its weight in gold.
