Store Your Jewelry Safely

A large-scale insurance company recently reported that jewelry claims are 15 percent higher in December in January, with February about eight percent higher. Insurers have also reported that personal jewelry is most commonly stolen from the home. Losing a precious jewel, ring, necklace, bracelet or pendant can mean not only a significant financial loss, but a sentimental loss as well, so what can you do to keep them protected?

There are many ways you can improve the security of your jewelry at home if you’re diligent about safeguarding. Help protect your valuable pieces of jewelry against the elements and theft with an in-home safe. Safes offer a secure and central location to organize, store and retain some of your most prized possessions. Whether your collection is small or extensive, these tips can go a long way in terms of safeguarding your valuables.



When selecting the safe that’s right for you, there are several factors to consider. Below are a few of the essential aspects to weigh out in preparation for your purchase.

How Well Does it Protect?

Safes are easy targets for burglars, as most manufacturers construct safes that can only withstand about five minutes of attempted entry with a medium sized crowbar. The safe should have at least a ½-inch-thick solid steel floor and at least ¼-inch-thick solid plate welded steel walls.

The safe you select should also be weighty. If an offender can easily pick up and transport the safe with all of your jewels inside, it hasn’t done you any good. You want a safe well above minimum standards to ensure maximum protection.


Is it Accessible?

Usually located near a bedroom, vanity or closet, your jewelry storage should be easily accessible so that the pieces can be worn when desired. Study the layout of your current bedroom and master bath to decide which area would be best for your safe. Once you’ve decided on location, color and additional style features that compliment your room’s surroundings can be selected.


Does it Fit My Needs?

Form should always follow function, meaning a safe’s size and structure should suit your needs. Which items do you intend on storing regularly? How would you like them to be organized? What size safe will store your collection? How do you want to access your items?

Many quality jewelry safes are customizable with various locking mechanisms, interchangeable drawer inserts and soft lining options like satin, velvet or felt.



  • Keep inventory of your pieces – photos and descriptions in electronic form is preferable.
  • Clean your jewelry after each use to remove dirt and sweat.
  • Store each type individually to avoid entanglement, damage and scratches.
  • Keep the safe out of site.
  • Keep doors closed where you don’t want visitors to stray.
  • Be mindful of family, friends and pets.

How to Propose this New Years

The New Year is only a few days away! It’s a time for reflection, rebirth, commitment to improvement and sometimes, to another person. There is a reason why the New Tear is a popular time to propose and just because many others will be doing it doesn’t mean your has to be any less significant. If you’re thinking of popping the question this New Year’s don’t do it without a proper game plan! Make sure she can only say one thing…YES!!


Surprise Her
This is the whole point tight? Even if you’ve been dating for years you still want to maintain the element of surprise as she will remember it for the rest of her life.

Make sure you have “Permission”
Some couples talk extensively about their future together and even marriage. One of the most important things is the ring. Although you can always go back to get it refitted and augmented, to some women the ring buying process is an intimate one that they wish to be involved in. Make sure she wasn’t hoping to go ring shopping WITH you.

Choose a Special Spot
Don’t be at in a mosh pit at a metal concert unless you’re absolutely sure she’s into that. You’ll always remember the place you proposed and will even visit in the future again to reignite your flame. Make sure the setting is more than just beautiful, make sure it means something to the both of you.

Record the Moment
One of the biggest turnoffs can be a man holding a ring in one hand while holding an iPhone in the other. Prepare beforehand and make sure you have someone waiting in secret or a preplaced recording device to make sure you capture that once in a lifetime moment forever.

There’s only one thing left to do…party! Keep the celebrations intimate and only open to people who mean a lot to the both of you. Don’t invite the whole neighborhood, that’s what the wedding is for.


Embarrass her
Only you know your significant other the best. You know what she finds romantic and what turns her off. Make sure that however you choose to propose doesn’t put her on the spot and make feel pressured into giving you a certain response. She will hold that against you for a long time. Try to stay away from public proposals where strangers are around or family who may project unfair feelings of expectation.

Be Boring
Make your proposal story one worth telling. Don’t just pull the ring out at dinner.

Get too Clever
The dinner example is a good one. Please don’t hide thousands of dollars’ worth of precious metal and stone inside her chocolate soufflé. Choking and possible theft are likely scenarios.

Drink too much
It’s ok to have a drink or two to loosen up, but if you find yourself incredibly nervous and gulping down old-fashions, you may want to reconsider your proposal.
