7 Pretty Solutions for Jewelry Storage

Having been three weeks at our new place, you’d think we’d have kissed the boxes bye-bye ages ago, right? Wrong. we unpacked our last box last Saturday. Unbelievable! It’s hard when you have literally no time to spend a day here or there in three weeks’ time to finalize the unpacking process. But life has just kept us both so busy, and being out of town last weekend postponed our task even further.

One thing I’ve struggled with for, well, years really–is proper jewelry storage. Most of the time my jewelry is laying in ZipLoc bags in plain view on my dresser, along with my makeup arsenal. Not anymore. [houston] won’t stand for it! So even though I’ve found proper storage options for my makeup, my jewelry has truly never had a home. So I did a little research on cute jewelry storage options for displaying my jewelry proudly. I have alot of it, and since I don’t have $350 to drop on a jewelry armoire (could that BE any more glamorous??), I found some pretty reasonable options on the interwebs.

[houston] nixed the idea of having mismatched vintage trinket saucers set out on the dresser to hold my rings, bangles, earrings, etc so it looks like I’ll have to display my jewelry more like art. I want to find a pretty gold vintage frame and screen it–like they did here–for my earrings. And the white pieces from my above picks would look so great clustered together on my dresser!

  1. hayworth jewelry armoire, pier 1, $350
  2. little animals trinket box, urban outfitters, $8
  3. sea urchin jewelry box, satinbox.com, $25
  4. layer cake catchall, urban outfitters, $28
  5. little birch jewelry stand, urban outfitters, $32
  6. porcelain bavarian bird dish, etsy, $20
  7. mirrored jewelry box, zgallerie, $40

Where is your jewelry’s home when you’re not wearing it?

    I always have such a difficult time sorting my jewelry so that I wear it all. I always end up wearing the same pieces over and over. Looks like it's time for a makeover!

    Oooh, that armoire!

    I have large gray leather jewelry box for all of my real stuff, so all of that is well organized. My costume/vintage stuff, however, is still all over the place, although I do try to organize my necklaces by hanging them on a necklace rack I picked up in Chicago. I also keep some of my bracelets in little bowls.

    3 weeks??? It took me 3 months to get rid of the last boxes! So well done.

    When it comes to my jewelry's home, I use a branch-like stand (IKEA) and a box (handmade by my mom).

    I love all your picks! I too store my jewelry like art, which not only makes my bathroom look extra special in my eyes, but it allows me to actually see everything I have and really use it. Here are some photos of how I store my jewelry as well as an easy DIY for how I did the earring frames. I can't wait to see what you end up with!

    Love the UO Birch Tree stand – I have a few of these and I use them to display simple necklaces at my jewelry shows! I like the catchall you found as well… I might add this to my collection!

    I have that jewelry armoire and I LOVE it!

    The hangers flat display bags for the closet have solved my jewelry problems. I can see it all. I have a bag for pins, one for necklaces, one for earrings and one for bracelets. On one side I have gold, the other side silver. (Colors are just mixed in). I need at least one more for "sets". Each bag has 80 pockets and takes up less space than a blazer in your closet. You get what you want–being able to see your jewelry. HB gets what he wants–Your jewelry put away! Here is the Amazon link– http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0010XX7ZQ/ref=o

    I have a cherry wood jewelry box for the majority of my items, but I have a towel rack I bought from IKEA for $7 that displays my long necklaces, and it looks pretty awesome! I love your choices!

    My jewelry used to be all over the place! My jewelry box was overflowing and I would forget about the things on the bottom. Finally I found the best solution to display ALL my jewelry as well as other accessories! http://lifeanonymousgirls.wordpress.com/2010/11/0

    I have a rack attached to the inside door of my closet that is meant for belts but I use it to hang all my necklaces. I also cleaned out the top drawer of my bureau and fit a drawer/jewelry separator that I got at the Container Store: each little compartment houses a pair or two of earrings so they are all together in pairs and not in a tangled mix. Best of all, I can close my closet doors and drawers and everything is hidden away!

      Sara this is such a great idea! Isn't Container Store a godsend??

    Wow, love it! #1 would be ideal but for someone who doesn't have much space (like me), #5 is a beautiful option!

    • http://prettyshinysparkly.com/ Kristina

      I love #1 too but my problem isn't space, it's $$$!! ;-)

    My armoire looks like a dressing mirror but when I unlock the door inside is my jewelry. I keep my earrings, necklaces and bracelets inside because it's also a silver safe keeper so no tarnishing.

    I love your jewelry post! i struggled keeping my earrings together so i created these earring frames:


    and ended up hanging my necklaces on my wall with cute, little hand-painted hooks- you can see them in this post:
