There is nothing quite as beautiful as gold necklace chains especially if they are adorned with a pendant. However, storing necklaces is vital in keeping your lovely chains from kinking or tangling because kinks can ruin the chain completely. Therefore, knowing how to store your necklaces will make them last a lifetime so that when you are ready to go out on the town, you have your necklace waiting for you, free of kinks or tangles.
The worst kind of kinks that can occur gold necklace chains are the very thin chains, if you get them tangled with another chain, and it bends, the chain may never lay right on your neck. The solution to the problem is quite simply storing necklaces in the many different options that are available to you. There are very inexpensive storage units and then those that cost more, depending on the number of necklaces you have as well as your budget.
Several jewelry boxes are made specifically with small hangers to hang your gold necklace chains or necklaces with pendants. By keeping the necklace in a hanging position in its own hook, keeps it from getting near other necklaces and tangling or knotting. This is the easiest solution to storing necklaces because you can find jewelry boxes that are specifically for hanging necklaces or have a combination of a regular jewelry box on one side and the other half with small hangers or pegs to hang your necklaces.
If you are in a pinch and do not have a jewelry box for storing necklaces, but you want to ensure your gold necklace chains do not get tangled or kinked, you can use a hanger to drape the necklace on the hook so that it remains away from other jewelry. In addition, if you have a corkboard, you can just pin a necklace to the board, which works quite well if you only have a few necklaces.
If you are traveling and want to take your gold necklace chains, you can still find easy ways to keep them from tangling. You can keep them kink-free by rolling one necklace into a piece of tissue, just make sure you roll the chain and do not just lay it down on the tissue and fold it, because this can cause tangles.
When it comes to storing necklaces, the key is to keep your necklaces separated from your other jewelry because thin gold necklace chains are magnets to rings and other jewelry and can easily become next to impossible to remove the kinks or tangles. Therefore, for long-term solutions, purchase a jewelry box that has a necklace compartment, but if you are away from home, store your necklace on whatever you have available to ensure they are hanging alone, never just drop it in your purse, or you may end up with a tangled mess. With a little additional care of storing your necklaces, they will last you many years.
