How to Store Jewellery

3rd May 2024

When it comes to jewellery, out of sight is out of mind. But it’s simply too easy for necklaces to tangle and items to go astray. After all, it’s hardly worth owning a stunning pair of pearl drop earrings if you can’t find them when needed. That’s why we’ve compiled the best tips when it comes to storing jewellery so your accessories are organised and easy to access at all times. 

1. Use a Stylish Jewellery Box

The key to making jewellery easily accessible is to make sure it's visible at all times. Use a stylish jewellery box that can sit on your vanity table or even a chest of drawers. Quartz stone boxes not only look classy but can also harness positive energy due to the healing powers of crystals. Alternatively, you could use ceramic dishes, a tabletop pedestal, or even a dress-up object such as a bust. The more visibility you have, the easier it is to pick accessories for outfits. 

2. Opt for Stackable Drawer Organisers

Drawers aren’t all bad when it comes to storing jewellery. In fact, with a little ingenuity, you can make drawer storage work out well for your accessories. The key is to use stackable drawer organisers. You can use an empty drawer or even keep them stacked on a tabletop. Stackers come with dividers which make it easy to store rings, pendants, and earrings in different compartments. You can even use each tier for a specific type of jewellery such as necklaces which makes it quicker to find things.

3.Hang Your Necklaces 

Neck pieces are a nightmare when they get knotted, not only is it irritating, but it can also damage the chain. Hanging necklaces is the best way to keep them untangled. You could use individual wall-mounted hooks or a jewellery wall rack with pegs. Hanging organisers are also extremely convenient as they can be used for other accessories such as earrings and can be conveniently stored. Furthermore, you don’t have to worry about packing when you’re going on trips.

4. Try Tiered Storage 

Tiered storage is great when you’ve limited space to work with, but even if space isn’t an issue you could always give it a go. Swivel trays are still the go-to option when it comes to tiered storage, but you can also try round-rotating storage. If you want to organise your jewellery in terms of size, a tiered stand is ideal: you can store smaller pieces like stud earrings on top, and use the bottom compartments for brooches.

5. Use Acrylic Containers 

If you’re looking for an effortless jewellery storage idea, acrylic containers will do the trick. The fact that they’re transparent means you have better visibility of all your best items. You can put pieces into individual compartments and store the container in a drawer or place it on your vanity table.
