1) Get jewelry insurance. The unexpected does happen. Jewelry insurance covers loss, theft, damage, and mysterious disappearance.
2) Designate a specific location to store your jewelry. Have a safe or memorable location available to place your jewelry. Store in a separate fabric pouch or section of your jewelry box.
3) Be mindful of family, friends, and pets. If you do have guests over, take extra safety precautions while hosting. Pets have also been known to have appetites for sparkly items.
4) Keep a jewelry inventory. Remembering from memory each piece of jewelry you had may be impossible. Make an inventory with photos and keep it offsite.
5) Remove your ring before washing hands or doing dishes. Keep in mind that soaps or sanitizers may be harmful to certain stones and metals.
