Luxury Jewelry Safe Buying Tips

A luxury safe is a high-grade burglary safe with optional fire protection and extensive upgrades to vastly improve on convenience, appearance, and organization. These highly configurable safes can even include custom jewelry storage with modular drawer insert systems, and watch storage options, including automatic watch-winder panels. Luxury safes commonly offer increased protection levels and come standard with many advanced protection features.

      Organize and optimize

    A safe can do far more than simply protect your valuables. When properly configured, a safe provides a great opportunity to organize and optimize your life.

    To fully capitalize on what your new safe offers, it's essential to stop thinking of your future safe as the thing you will store your valuables in and instead treat the safe as a highly configurable personal organizer…that protects what's in it.

    A good safe can be equipped with file drawers, jewelry drawers, necklace racks, watch winders, DVD drawers, gun racks, photo drawers, equipment drawers…the list is very extensive.

    Rather than having your precious items spread throughout your home and losing precious time tracking an item down whenever it goes missing, consolidate and organize. Take this opportunity to compile a list of the important items you commonly use and then consider how you want to organize these items in a way that works best for you. Now you can search out a quality safe that best accommodates your organizational plan.

      Look for flexible drawer layouts for your jewelry

    Jewelry drawer layouts should offer variety and be easy to add and remove, allowing you to order new layouts as your collection grows or your needs change.

    We can produce custom interior drawer layouts to accommodate any specialty items within your jewelry collection.

      Install in an accessible location

    All too often, safes go unused when they are located too far away to be conveniently accessed. Many times a new safe buyer will overthink the planned location for their safe, locating it in some cleverly concealed location or disguising the safe behind false doors or walls. While concealing your safe is fine, don't do this at the cost of overall convenience or the safe will likely fall out of use over time. It's far better to store your commonly used valuables in a not-so-hidden safe than to have these items left out for easy pilfering. Rather than out thinking the burglar along with yourself, rely on the safe to perform its job of protection and place it where it's likely to get the most use. If your home is burglarized, a well-built burglary safe will faithfully protect your contents.

      Allow room for a fully opening door

    Try to provide enough room outside the safe for the door to open to 135°. This allows the inner door elements to swing clear, providing full, unobstructed access the safe's contents and maximizing the amount of available interior space.

    This holds especially true for safes with drawers, as a 135° door swing allows the drawers to fill the entire horizontal range of the safe's interior.

    If the safe will be in a cabinet or the safe door will be stopped by a wall, you'll need to specify a door swing of 90°. This means the drawers will be narrowed 1" to 2" to prevent them from being blocked by the door.

    You should also consider which side of the safe you'll want the hinge on to allow for the most convenient access.

      Position the drawers at a height that best suits you

    Since the drawers of a luxury safe tend to get the most use, we suggest you position them at a height that allows you to both see into every drawer while standing and take items from each drawer without excessive bending.

    Our larger models, like the Gem 6018, allow the highest degree of drawer-mounting flexibility. Drawers can be positioned at the top, center, or bottom of the safe.

    Custom pedestal risers are available in any size. The pedestal elevates the safe off the floor to a height that provides you with optimum access to your entire collection. If you are considering one of our smaller models, you may want to order the safe with a pedestal or have it built into existing shelving in order to raise it to a convenient height.
