We have bad news: the first place many homeowners store their jewelry and valuables is exactly where most burglars first look when breaking in. Just having a home jewelry safe isn’t enough – you need to place it in a hidden location.
But don’t worry, from working 12 years with discerning homeowners around the globe, we can share a simple solutions to this.

Custom Secret Mirror Developed for Client’s Master Bathroom Closet
You may be tempted to think that, aside from the major invasion of privacy, the loss of your jewelry isn’t as significant, as it will be easily covered by insurance. But this unfortunately isn’t the case. As a leading security website, Safe Wisereports:
“Unfortunately, jewelry is notoriously difficult to trace and rarely recovered. So keep jewelry pictures, receipts and appraisals in a safe location – it is otherwise very hard to report to insurance”
So, what do they recommend?
“Consider hiding it in an unusual place, such as an empty shampoo bottle in the bathroom closet”
But do you really want your jewelry covered in shampoo? We think having to hide your jewelry in obscure places is, well, tragic!
One might consider instead keeping their jewelry in a home safe. Not only is a jewelry safe a poor way to “enjoy” your jewelry, it’s also not secure. In fact, a home jewelry safe points criminals right to your jewelry! Just check out the example video below!
