I don’t wear a lot of jewelry but I do have several special pieces of jewelry that were given to me as gifts. Since they sit in the jewelry box when not in use, I started to wonder if that was the best way to take care of them. I decided I needed to know how to make your jewelry last longer so they were in the best possible shape when I wore them next.

How to Make your Jewelry Last Longer
I never really gave a lot of thought to how to make your jewelry last longer until I took out one of my favorite necklaces and noticed a spot was tarnished on the chain. I’m not sure exactly what caused the tarnish but I’m assuming it was the humidity.
Knowing how to make your jewelry last longer means that the next time I open my jewelry box, I won’t find that tarnish.
- One of the easiest tips to make your jewelry last longer is to store each piece in a small zippered plastic bag. The air and humidity won’t be able to get to it that way.
- If you’ll be displaying your jewelry in bowls or on organizers that are out in the open, be certain to keep them away from direct sunlight and dampness.
- Keep your jewelry away from any chemicals. That means you should remove rings and bracelets before you wash dishes or handle cleaning products.
- Inspect your jewelry for any loose settings and deal with it before you lose a stone. Check the clasp to make sure it closes securely.
- Have your jewelry inspected and repaired by a jewelry professional to keep it looking its best.
