I am jewelry lovers and have pretty big collection. Its very difficult to just toss it away because every item very valuable to me. Not because of the price but I love every item I bought because of the design. What happen to me are common issues faced by jewelry lovers, missing pieces (earring most of the time), things gets tangled up. You also keep wearing the same one because its hard to what you have in your collection. Time is always to be blamed, I have no time to find the matching jewelry. But the real reason is because your jewelry are not easily accessible.
You do not need to fancy ways to organize and keep your jewelry collection in good conditions. The important things to know, different type of jewelry should be keeping in different ways. I explained here how to choose the right storage or organizer for every type of your jewelry.
Valuable jewelry like gold and silvers that you want to keep at home should be stored in its original box. To keep the pieces secured, put them in lock drawers. Both type of jewelry have malleable metals and can be easily scratches. Unlike gold, silver can be easily oxidized. Before storing your silver jewelry and slow down the tarnish, wash properly after using and wrap it in a tarnish-proof cloth.
Same for jewelry with natural gems. Avoid storing your organics gems jewelry in the plastics bags. Natural gems especially pearls need moisture to avoid it from crack. Keep diamonds separately in different cloth pouch. Diamond is the hardest gems and it can scratch others if kept together.
The best way to keep your fine jewelry is in jewelry armoire or locked drawer.
Fashion jewelry are made with gold, silver or platinum plating and often comes with semi-precious stones or other imitate gems. When you are buying fashion jewelry, it’s usually comes in fabric pouch to keep it from scratch and oxidize. Also, to protect the stones from falling or scratching.

Rings and other accessories may lose its shine and missing its stones. Best way to keep it to maintain its beauty for years are to properly organized it in a right storage.
