You should certainly think about the way you store your jewellery. Different gemstones have different adaptability and some can easily scratch or knock each other if stored together.

Jewellery should always be stored away from sunlight, or any extreme weathers. Try to keep the packages and boxes that the piece comes in, it's usually the easiest and most protected place to keep Â the piece from dust and damage.
If you wish to keep your jewellery in tip-top condition you should occasionally clean it by removing any dust, oils or contamination. You should always lean to the side of caution and use simple, non-abrasive materials like soap and water, with a soft toothbrush. Be careful not to be too rough whilst you clean your jewellery. Plus, it must be rinsed and dried thoroughly afterwards.
You should always put your jewellery on last when dressing. This is so that your jewellery doesn't catch on any of your clothing.
