The only thing we love nearly as much as ogling gorgeous jewelry is finding new ways to store it. Sometimes we’re blown away by the complete transformation of a fabulous midcentury piece of furniture into a gigantic repository for all things sparkly. This is the jewelry equivalent of having a dedicated dressing room for a closet (unless your Lisa Vanderpump, in which case said room has a jewelry section).
And then there are the projects that convert precious wall space into a space-saving jewelry storage center. Never get dressed again in a rush, neglecting to accessorize because you simply can’t see your baubles displayed nicely. Think about it – you probably are missing out on 80% of your jewelry simply because it’s tucked away somewhere (or if you’re like certain guilty bloggers, stuffed into bags and pouches in the depths of your closet…we need to do some cleaning.)
And, of course, there are the fabulous built-in options that every jewelry lover dreams of. Hidden cabinets full of plush velvet (lilac or navy please) with hooks for earrings, rolls for bracelets, pillows for brooches, and pegs upon pegs for our diamond and pearl necklaces. It wouldn’t hurt if the exterior were Venetian glass or framed with inlaid mother of pearl, not that we’ve been browsing or anything. You know, we would even settle (we guess) for a floor mirror with beautiful details and accents, perhaps like this Horchow option – we’ll also take the sconces and the Marco Bicego necklace in the Neiman’s box:
But, for now, and for many mere mortals, the best option is a sweet, decorative jewelry box. Whether you prefer the traditional route, a nice box with spaces for all your finery, or something a little more modern, there are plenty of gorgeous options for a fancy jewelry box.
What could be more perfect than a gem-inspired box to store your gems inside? This marbled laquer box sports an earthy but trendy quartz topper and combines beautifully with other lacuqer boxes you already own. We love the pop of pattern, especially because it’s candy-colored marble.
Another look we love is this stack of boxes, all in natural horn, by Serena and Lily. The boxes themselves are hewn from solid teak, perfectly complimenting the polished horn’s deeper veins of color, tiled neatly on the boxes’ exterior.
Of course, when you can’t be bothered to stack your own boxes (or if you’re prone to knocking them over all the time) it’s best to go the already attached route. This Topsy-Turvy jewelry box by Anthropologie doesn’t sacrifice whimsy for sturdiness, with an Alice in Wonderland-esque vibe. The collected look is beautiful with complementary dark wood, white washed, and mercury glass boxes stacked faux-precariously onto little brass legs. Mismatched hardware completes the look.
If you’re truly brand-loyal, there’s no better place to store your Tiffany jewelry than in a Tiffany jewelry box. Signature Tiffany blue pebble leather surrounds this box, lined with faun colored ultrasuede, with Palladium plated accents and hardware. Sealed with a Tiffany Key.
Last, but in no way, shape or form least, is our latest obsession. This turquoise embossed shagreen covered box by Aerin may be pricey enough to buy an actual piece of jewelry, but it’s drool-worthy enough to make up for it. Brass accents pop against the heirloom quality box with natural suede lining the interior. It’s just begging you to fill it with stacks of Love Bangles and Clic Clacs.
