So, you’ve been thinking about investing in a jewelry safe, but you’re wondering: how much is a custom safe going to cost me? At Casoro Jewelry Safes we get this question a lot, so we decided to help break it down. By the end of this article, you should have a better idea of just how much of an investment your ideal jewelry safe will be. It’s worth investigating to determine which jewelry safe is right for you, so here are the top four components to consider when figuring out how much your jewelry safe will cost (For a more complete cost break down, see our Comparative Specifications page):
1. Size – Jewelry safes come in all shapes and sizes and like most things, the larger the safe, the more it’s going to end up costing. First thing to think about when determining what size safe you need, is where your safe will be residing in your home. Is there a certain section of your closet perhaps, where it will need to fit? Or will it be more of a statement piece on display in your bedroom? Figuring out size restrictions now will help avoid any “uh oh” moments later during installation…
Another important piece to keep in mind when pondering the size of your jewelry safe is: what am I going to put in it? You may think your jewelry is small and doesn’t need very much room, but it just so happens that quite often in our business, people come in to purchase their second safe because they have run out of room in their original safe. Our advice to you: always aim on the larger side. Imagine everything you might want to keep in your safe; this may be more than jewelry, it may include things like collectibles, electronics, passports, important paperwork, etc. Laying all of these things out and looking at them will help you to visualize just how much space you will need. Once you’ve done that, choose a safe that’s a bit larger than that to accommodate future valuables you will wish to store as well.
2. Bells and Whistles – How dressed up do you want your luxury safe to be? Some people don’t care about appearances so much, especially if their safe is going to be hidden away somewhere, but a jewelry safe can also be customized to be as luxurious as you want to make it. Some popular features include: interior lighting, chrome door paneling, pedestals (for elevating a smaller safe for easier access), biometric locks, high security upgrades, and more! Take a look at our safe gallery page to get a better idea of what bells and whistles you might want to have on your safe.
3. Accessories – Beyond the bells and whistles, are other essential accessories. How you accessorize depends upon what type of jewelry and other valuables you’ll be keeping in your safe. A person with an assortment of necklaces for example, may choose to add a necklace rack or two inside the door of their safe. A man with a watch collection will want to add our watch winders. Maybe you would like to keep important paperwork in your safe to protect it from burglaries, and also fires (all of our safes are fire rated). In that case, you might like to add a file cabinet for organizing your important documents. Again, our advice to you is to think about all of the items you would like to keep in your safe and then determine how you would like to store them.
4. Drawer Customizability – Last, but not least, comes customizing your drawer interiors. What type of jewelry will be going into your safe? Do you have rings, bracelets, necklaces, watches, all of the above? All of our drawers can be customized to best organize your jewelry collection; it’s completely up to you! Our advice is to lie out all of your jewelry onto your bed and arrange everything how it makes sense to you, to determine what types of compartments will work best. Need ideas? Take a look at our drawer interiors spec sheets.
Bottom line, when it comes to our luxury jewelry safes, there’s no “one price fits all.” Each safe is completely customizable to fit you.
