Jewelry is a popular type of collectible. In addition to sprucing up an outfit, jewelry, precious metals and gemstones hold their value well in the antiques and vintage marketplace. When it comes to fine jewelry, protecting your investment goes hand in hand with proper storage.
With that said, storing these valuables is important. Gold and silver pieces can get scratched when stored next to other pieces in a jewelry box. These precious metals can damage fragile jewelry items such as pearls and shells, too.
