Fabulous Jewerly Box Ideas
Jewelry boxes, storage for your beloved pieces of jewelry. Are they worth the investment? Should you pick an expensive piece? What styles and options are available?
Jewelry Boxes are definitely worth the investment
Jewelry boxes are worth an investment. Although they needn’t be expensive. The most important thing about a jewelry box is that it keeps your jewelry tidy. Not only will this safe you a lot of time in the morning, deciding which piece you want to wear with your outfit that day, but most importantly; it keeps your jewelry safe from scratches and damage.
Both these designs were found on Etsy.
I came across the website of Muji, they offer some great acrylic boxes that you could furbish with some soft cotton on the inside, and you’ll have an inexpensive solution for your jewelry storage. You can even start your own little DIY project, inspiration for that can be found all over the internet. Check out: the Crafted Life blog or Ana DIY Crafts for example.
Mele & Co drawers
I have always wondered why jewelry stores do not promote or offer more jewelry storage solutions. Apart from making a great gift, it is an opportunity for more sales for the store itself and it educates at the same time: keep your jewelry clean and tidy and enjoy wearing it, for so much longer!

Marie Kondo & Khloe Kardashian tips
Although I am dreaming about being organized and tidy, devoured the book by Marie Kondo: the live-changing magic of tidying up and love all these Pinterest bords, Martha Steward’s advice, and the many many video’s on YouTube about keeping your stuff tidy, I still haven’t managed to become that perfectly organized, ever so tidy person. But to entertain you, I have picked a video by Khloe Kardashian, that shows you how she keeps her jewelry tidy.

Last but not least, feast your eyes on the incredibly beautiful craftsmanship of David Linley. Mr. Linley grew up in a very privileged surrounding. He is the only son of Princess Margaret. Viscount David developed a passion for furniture and woodwork from a very young age. In 2006 he became Chairman UK of Christies and owns several shops and online webshop that you can visit here.
He created the masterpieces that are more objects of art than anything else, but they all are created as novelty jewelry boxes. As a lover of craftsmanship and beauty, with a passion for novelty and fun details, I immediately fell in love with his designs. Completely not affordable for most of us, but to me they are like a kiss on my eyes...a moment of ‘’Oh and Ah’’ . Who doesn’t like those moments?! :-)
