Are you in possession of diamond jewelry and does it sometimes feel unsafe to leave it behind when you are away from home? This blog explains exactly how you should store jewelry in the right way to avoid the chances of it getting stolen. Diamond jewelry represents high value and you should be careful with it. We give you a number of tips to keep the jewelry safe when you are away.

1.  Store the diamond jewelry in a safe.

A useful first step towards security is purchasing a safe to store valuables. Diamond jewelry is also part of this, so if you don’t have a safe yet, we recommend buying one. A good safe usually costs more than 100 euros, and therefore is quite pricey.

As soon as you have purchased a safe that matches your wishes, you have to find a good place to place it and also a code must be devised. Make sure that the code is not easy to guess and do not write the code down. The code has to make sense, so you don’t forget.

This diamond ring is definitely an excellent choice to add to your collection. “Diamonds speak louder than words”.

2. Hide the safe

It is great that you have a safe to put your jewelry in, but if the safe is portable, you will still lose your jewelry. That is why you should hide your safe or build it into the wall or closet. This could be a bit more pricey, but it is definitely worth investing in for the safety of your jewelry.

An even safer option is to hide your built-in safe. You could do this by hanging a painting or mirror in front of it. By doing this, your room will not only look beautiful but no one will notice a safe is hidden behind the art.

If you don’t want a built-in safe, you could hide your safe in places where it will be hard to find as well. Places to hide it are under your bed, behind your closet or hidden in between your clothes.

3. Make sure an alarm is set on your house

An alarm is the next step that guarantees safety for your belongings. It is not only beneficial for diamond jewelry but also for your own safety. Valuable possessions attract attention, also from people with negative intentions. An alarm will create a deterrent response making it a bigger step for criminals to break into the house.

A visible alarm or a sign with ‘video surveillance’ written on it would already scare burglars away. Breaking into your house would be a bigger step for criminals now. Always make sure that if your alarm goes off, the police will get notified automatically.

If someone somehow does manage to get in, the alarm will scare the burglar and notify the police so the chances for the burglar to succeed will be minimal.

4. Secure locks on the jewelry boxes

After purchasing a safe and installing an alarm, and you want to take an extra step in guaranteeing the safety of your jewelry boxes, purchasing locks for the jewelry is a good idea.

The locks are also useful if you go on a trip and want to take the jewelry with you. As soon as you go on a trip and want to take jewelry with you, locks on the boxes are a good option. Of course, you don’t have a safe or alarm on holiday. However, you do want the jewelry to remain untouched, so this is a perfect solution. Make sure you keep the keys together and carry them with you at all times.

5. Store the jewelry out of sight

Diamond jewelry is great to see and show everyone, but your house is not a showroom. Make sure to store the jewelry out of sight. This ensures that people do not know that you have such valuable possessions and therefore, it is less likely that they will break into your home.

In addition, burglars do not know where to look when they don’t see the jewelry directly. This means that they will find valuable possessions less quickly, and you have more time to call the police.

6. Spread jewelry through your whole house

Another important tip we want to give you is not storing all your jewelry in the same place. This way, you prevent that if something is stolen, all your jewelry is gone.

For example, put your everyday jewelry in a safe in your bedroom or bathroom. This place is easily accessible so it will still be easily accessible to wear every day. You can put your most valuable jewelry, which you don’t wear every day, in a less logical place, such as the kitchen or even the basement. Burglars will not quickly search these places, which means your favourite jewelry is safe.

While spreading the jewelry, make sure that you can still find them, you don’t want to lose them either.

7. Insure your diamond jewelry

We hope that this is not necessary, but if after all these tips you still think that your jewelry is not optimally secured, you can choose to insure it. You can have your jewelry appraised and then you know exactly how much you can have them insured for.

Many insurers already reimburse jewelry up to a certain amount under the contents insurance. This amount is often even higher if they are stored in a safe. If you find it necessary, you can also insure jewelry separately. An advantage of insuring your jewelry separately is that they are also insured if something happens outside the home.

If, sadly enough your jewelry does get stolen, then at least the financial damage is not as bad.
