I remember a few years ago when I just started getting into wearing and collecting jewelry. At that time, I would just throw all my jewelry into a small gift box I had leftover from one Christmas. It was convenient and seemed to work for a little while, but it didn't take long for me to realize that the cardboard gift box did not provide adequate storage and protection for my growing collection. Of course, this is after my precious pup decided to use the box as a chew toy, ripping it to shreds and leaving my jewelry scattered across the floor.
Fortunately, the damage to my actual jewelry was minimal, but I definitely didn't want to test my luck again. In order to prevent my valued jewelry from being stolen, lost, or damaged, I decided to buy a proper jewelry box to store my collection. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I could make to help maintain my jewelry in excellent condition.
I highly recommend any jewelry owner who doesn’t have a jewelry box, get one as soon as they can. The cost of buying a jewelry box is way less than the cost of having to replace an expensive jewelry collection that was not properly stored. Below I have provided a list of 6 reasons why you should definitely invest in a jewelry box.
The ability to keep your jewelry organized and free from clutter is a huge benefit provided by a jewelry box. Most jewelry boxes come with different sized and shaped compartments allowing you to store many different types of jewelry. This is great because it allows the jewelry to lay in a position that keeps it from getting tangled or damaged. Many jewelry boxes also contain other storage options such as pockets, hooks, fold-out compartments, etc.
2. Easy Accessibility
Sometimes when you have jewelry scattered all over, it becomes difficult to access specific pieces when you need them. Imagine getting ready for an important event like a date or a business lunch, and you remember the perfect necklace to go with your outfit.
Unfortunately, since you don’t properly store your jewelry, you have to waste valuable time looking for the necklace and end up late to your event. A good jewelry box would make this process a lot less hectic by providing you with a place to put all your accessories in one place so they are readily accessible when needed.
3. Protection From Theft
If you just leave your jewelry laying out in the open or in an unsecured container it can be very vulnerable to theft. Why make it easy for any thief to just walk away with your jewelry? A good jewelry box with a lock is a much better way to secure your jewelry so that the only person that can access it is you. It will keep your jewelry out of view from others and make it much harder for anyone with bad intentions to access your jewelry. You will have much better peace of mind if you know your jewelry is properly secured.
4. Protection From Damage
If you just throw your jewelry somewhere out in the open when not in use, then you are leaving it exposed to wear and possible damage. Your jewelry could easily fall or be knocked away from where you placed it, causing damage. Jewelry boxes prevent damage by keeping your jewelry secured in one place, protected from external forces. Jewelry boxes also come with compartments that allow you to keep jewelry separated. The prevents pieces from rubbing up against each other and causing scratches.
5. Reduces Risk of Loss
Not having a consistent place to store your jewelry puts it at risk of getting lost. It’s a lot harder to remember where you put your class ring if you put it a different place every time. Building a habit of putting your jewelry in a jewelry box will ensure that it is always there when you need it. A jewelry box will also prevent a determined child or pet from accessing your jewelry and taking it to their favorite hiding place.
Last but not least, jewelry boxes are another way to showcase your style. Jewelry boxes come in many different styles and designs. These products are made with the customers in mind. You can even find a jewelry box that matches the furniture in your home. There are also different styles for both men and women so you have plenty of options to choose from.
