Storing Your Diamonds
When not wearing your jewellery, store them in proper jewellery cases. Use cases that have soft-cloth lining or jewellery cases that have separate compartments for different kinds of jewellery. If you have to store them in a plain box, wrap each piece in tissue paper. Don't let your jewellery rub against each other. This could cause chipping and scratches.
Diamonds are precious possessions and need proper care to last long and keep looking good. Preventing damage, lessening the daily wear on them and cleaning them regularly can keep your stones bright and sparkling for long. It is also important to let a jeweler inspect your diamonds and do any repair work necessary from time to time.
Some Tips on Storing Jewellery
Now that you have bought all the jewellery you wanted to, where and how do you store them? Keeping all your jewellery in a single box or place can cause all of them to be tangled and might also damage them. Storing jewellery in a proper way not only increases its life but also avoids tarnishing and contamination. It also ensures that the sparkle and brightness of the jewellery lasts longer.
One of the most important aspects of storing jewellery is that each type of jewellery has a unique set up.
Storing jewellery Tip #1
Sturdy jewellery cases with soft interiors are best for keeping your jewellery safe. While the tough and sturdy external cover would protect the jewellery from any external damages, its soft interiors would keep the jewellery safe from any unwanted scratches.

In case the option of a jewellery case isn't there, storing it in soft fabric pouches is an ideal option you can think of. These pouches are a good choice if you are travelling and have space restrictions.

Nowadays, multi-storage cases or pouches are also available in the market. These pouches have defined spaces for storing different types of jewellery.
