You are most likely spending more time at home these days due to the uncertain times of COVID-19. While you may not have the dangers of the outside world to worry about inside your home, your home presents its own risks when it comes to jewelry care.

If you're lucky to have ample warning prior to severe weather, whether you're evacuating or not, you may have a chance to gather your family heirlooms. But in case you don't, take these four precautions ahead of time.
Life happens. No matter how hard we try, we cannot plan for the unexpected.
