There are so many options for jewelry storage these days. Should you use a jewelry box, trays, cabinets? The options are endless when it comes to our favorite accessories. Luckily, there are many options available depending on the space you need.
The first step is to do an inventory of your jewelry collection. Match up earrings, untangle necklaces, and make sure watches have batteries. Now, make a pile of all those pieces you’re no longer wearing.
Now that you know exactly what you have you will have a better idea of what type of storage you will need to keep everything together and tangle free.
If you have extra drawer space, drawer inserts are a great option. You can see everything all at once when opened plus all your jewelry is tucked away and not cluttering up a dresser or nightstand top. Trays are designed with individual compartments sized for certain styles of jewelry - bracelets, earrings, rings etc. The number of trays you need depends on what you have in the “keep” pile you made earlier.
If you love silver like our silver filled name rings, it’s best to keep those in inside a jewelry bag or box to limit air exposure when not worn.
A pegboard is an inexpensive, stylish way to hang necklaces, bracelets and rings. You can paint the jewelry board according to your unique style. Cork board with push pins or T pins is another unique wall option for jewelry storage. Of course, there are pre-made wall mount jewelry hangers that can get quite fancy.
You can also enclose your jewelry collection in a cabinet or armoire. There are countless styles available from over the door to free standing with a mirror or stand alone armoires.
The number of counter top storage for your necklace, bracelets and rings are the most selective option if you don’t need a lot of room for your jewels. Trees, boxes and small dish bowls.
•DITCHING THE UNUSED
To keep things neat and tidy now that you have everything in its place, you need to keep what you wear separate from those you don’t. If you feel like you can part with the unworn, outdated or just not your style jewelry anymore, donate what you can and sell the rest for some extra spending cash. This option does take time and effort to declare value and a venue to sell them on.
Now that you have de-cluttered and organized your stock, you can see what you have available to match your outfits and change up your accessories when needed.
