Protect Your Precious Ornaments and Heirloom Jewels

By Treeves Subscribe to RSS | December 29th 2011 | Views:

Jewels are those exquisite pieces of art that women cannot take their eyes off this fine jewelry. Be it an antique or vintage jewelry, or intricate modern designs, the lust for jewelry never fades. Handmade or machine made precious ornaments like brooches, rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets made out of Gold, Silver, Titanium, Platinum Diamonds, Precious Colored Stones, Gems, Corals, beads, other metals and materials are not only appealing for personal adornment, it's also a treasure to preserve. The craze for beautiful jewelry is not a new-found passion, but has been passed down from generations through ancestors. In fact, if you dig down the road of history, you'll find traces of passion and fashion of jewel artifacts in ancient kingdoms and civilizations. Right from the olden days, these valuable possessions denote ranks and status in the society. Most cultures had a practice of storing wealth in the form of jewelry which is followed by many people till date. Given the present economic situation, investing in precious metals has become a trend and safe option.

Let alone the buying part, safeguarding and keeping intact your valuables particularly the heirloom pieces passed down from generation to generation and attached with sentiments is the toughest part. Periodical inspections of your antique jewelry for missing stones or damaged prongs is a must and make sure to take it for professional for inspection and repair. Always replace your ornaments in its case after using and never leave it in contact of air for prolonged time as it tends to lose its shine and fade away. When you're on a beach vacation, make sure you do not take your best jewels out to water with you as the chlorine content in water harms the ornaments. Regular use jewelry should be frequently checked for loose strings, stones, worn or damaged prongs, and faulty clasps as detection is often better than arriving to bigger problems like a lost diamond.

It is also important to make an inventory of your expensive jewelry which might be of great help in case of unknown incidents. Keeping it safe from potential intruders is one situation that you might hold your thought and consider with much apprehension. You can either opt for a rented safety deposit box or go for a home security services like the one offered by ADT Home Security Systems. Installing an alarm system to protect valuables may not deter a thief from getting house, but it will make you feel better at least knowing that it would not be an easy access while you are asleep or at work or travelling abroad. But just make sure the alarm is set 24 hours of the day. Another option you can consider to be devoid of worries about protecting your precious jewelry is by hiding it in unlikely places where an intruder cannot think of looking for it. For that you have to think like a thief and identify the places where the thief first starts for searching the jewels. Then, exclude those places and conceal your jewels in unrecognizable places. With the recent economic trends and rising inflation, everybody has felt the pinch in the dollar that doesn't buy what it used to and burglary has become the easiest way of source of income.

Finally, have your important and most valued jewels insured. It not only provides you peace of mind but also makes it easier to get a replica of the same item. Though nothing can replace a cherished heirloom piece, an insurance policy eases your burden in terms of budget. Thus it's a best way to begin protecting jewelry with a policy at the same time it is of utmost importance to protect your valuables from crime or from wearing of color and shine.
