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.

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.
