How to Untangle Jewelry. There are few things more annoying than when you're in a rush to get out of the house and you discover that your jewelry is tangled up. It's a fact of life that even if you're ultra-organized, your necklaces are bound to get tangled up and wrap around your earrings and bracelets.

Things You'll Need

  • Jewelry
  • Solid surface
  • Push pin or needle
  • Magnifying glass

Lay all of your jewelry out on a smooth surface, like a table-top or bed. Sort through it with your hands.

Separate whatever you can. Look for earrings, necklaces and bracelets that are easy to separate. Set them aside from the jumble of jewelry.

Unlatch the clasp of tangled necklaces and bracelets. They are easier to untangle if they're not latched.

Slowly follow each piece of jewelry, re-tracing its steps if you will, to get it untangled. Be careful not to cause more knots or kinks into chains.

Roll knots gently between your pointer finger and thumb to loosen them up.

Tackle tough knots with a needle or push pin. Work the sharp point into the middle of the knot. Use a magnifying glass if you have one to find the middle of the knot.

Focus on one knot at a time. Keep working the chain with the sharp point until the knots loosen.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use an earring if you don't have a needle or push pin. The earring post is pointy enough to get the job done.
  • Consider using two needles simultaneously. Pull the needles apart randomly to loosen the tangles.
  • Grab a pair of tweezers and try to work them through the knot.
  • Don't pull too hard at your jewelry or you'll cause more damage.
