5 Ways to Keep Jewellery Safe at Home

Your home is more than just a place to sleep, it’s a sanctuary, a restaurant, and a place to display and keep some of your most precious belongings.

It is difficult to think that someone could break in to your home, often while you are at work or on holidays, and steal the valuables you have worked hard for or been gifted.

So what can you do to keep your jewellery safe in your home?

One way is by using a safe to store your jewellery – we’ll touch on this more in point five below. You can pick up used jewellery safes at Askwith Safe Company, Australia’s trusted provider of secure home safes.

Security Cameras & Alarm Systems

Investing in security cameras for your home works as both a deterrent to would-be thieves and a means of catching them if they are brazen enough to break in.

There are a number of security camera systems on the market these days that are affordable and even connect directly to your smartphone, so you can check on your home while you are on holidays or just out at the shops.

These security cameras can also be hooked up to a security alarm system to give you greater protection, as a security system can alert you to a break in or movement within your home when you’re not there, while the camera system gives you footage than can be used as evidence against the perpetrator.

Don’t Flaunt Your Valuables on Social Media

If you’ve recently had a birthday, received a beautiful piece of jewellery or you own a considerable collection of valuables, it is important to avoid flaunting them on social media to the masses.

Unfortunately, social media is a great way for thieves to find out what valuables you may have in your home, when you might be home or at work and when you might be on holiday; giving them the perfect time to pay your home a visit and a list of valuables to look for.

Tip: We also suggest that if you receive jewellery or valuables at Christmas or around Valentine’s day, that you avoid putting any bags or boxes from the jewellery in your bins outside your home. Opportunistic thieves can also use these boxes to find out what you may have received and subsequently, what may be inside your home.

Take Out Insurance

Unfortunately, theft does happen, as does accidental damage and loss as a result of fire and other tragedies. If the worst happens, you want to know that you are covered financially for the loss.
Taking out an insurance policy to cover your jewellery and other valuables in your home won’t stop theft from happening, but it will give you peace of mind that from a financial sense, you are covered for any loss.

Hide Jewellery

This one is a bit of a no-brainer really. If you have expensive and precious jewellery, we understand you may want to have it on show so you can appreciate it, but we urge you to consider hiding your jewellery in creative places or buying a used jewellery safe.

Hiding jewellery out of sight often isn’t enough – thieves tend to find the easy hiding spots. Consider hiding jewellery and other precious items in creative spots such as in a fake bottom of a potted indoor plant, inside an old coffee mug at the back on your cupboard or even in an old sock at the back of your underwear drawer.

Just don’t forget where you’ve hidden them!
