It is important to properly store your jewelry to maintain the longevity of your pieces. The small black box in which your jewelry arrived at your home is an ideal place for conservation, as it offers a dark and clean hiding place free from the natural oxidation associated with contact with air. A cloth pouch is also a great option as it will prevent dust build-up and thus prevent scratches from contacting other parts. It can be tempting to keep your jewelry in the bathroom before you take a shower, unfortunately this can lead to stains and premature tarnishing of your pieces, so it's best to store them away from damp rooms.
