Chances are, someone has already been lurking around your bedroom or home office without your knowledge. Be responsible and secure your very valuable jewelry.
Security Costs Are Less Expensive Than Jewelry Theft
Get busy now! Here's are some ways to minimize the chances of jewelry theft from your home.
Small home safes are less than $100 at online stores. These safes are HEAVY. So buy online and let the UPS guy lug it in the front door for you.
Small lockable beauty cases are less than $15 at the corner drug store. You might like looking at your jewelry on display on your dresser top... but so do some other people.
Don’t buy a jewelry box without a lock. You can find beautiful, lockable boxes at your full-service jeweler or online.
Access Your Risk of Jewelry Theft
A recent episode of Hoarders: Buried Alive featured the worst case yet, hidden behind a home’s neat yellow façade. Inside, it was a hot mess, except for the owner’s jewelry which was set apart over in a corner.
Curiously, her 4 or 5 dozen gemstone rings were neatly organized in a glass display case. Gold neck chains were neatly hanging from stands. All this jewelry was among squalor and filth, probably the worst case ever on the series.
Burglary would seem to be the least of the hoarder's worries.
But for you and I, it’s a different story. (Isn’t it?)
Burglars might actually be the least of your worries compared to some individuals, "invited guests" you actually allow into your home without a 2nd thought.
