Protecting Valuable Jewelry
Be sure you store it―and insure it―correctly.
If you store things in a safe-deposit box, place them in something soft (a velvet or suede pouch), or lay them on velvet trays, which are sold at jewelry-display stores. At home, lock up precious items in a safe, closet, or drawer, and keep the keys in a separate place. You might want to keep precious jewelry in a fireproof metal filing cabinet to be extra safe.
