Jewelry Cleaner – Tarnish Remover 0

Putting a nice ring, bracelet or maybe a necklace under the tree for the Mrs this Christmas? Or maybe you have a decent jewelry collection of your own? We all make sure our favorite pieces are stored properly, but how often do you clean them?

If  you’re searching for a gift for the always-accessorized person in your life, consider some quality jewelry cleaner accessories.

Keep it clean

If you’re working on a budget, there are many different levels of jewelry upkeep. If you want to keep things inexpensive, a good solution or polishing cloth is a great gift. Not what you’re looking for? I recommend these awesome jewelry cleaning towelettes. They come in a dispensing tub –just like the wipes you use to tidy up of house — so you can easily access them. I love to keep them on the bathroom counter and give my everyday pieces a clean wipe as a part of my morning routine.

If the jewelry lover in your life is more serious about their collection, consider an ultrasonic cleaner. These digital cleaners are capable of cleaning jewelry, watches, glasses and more. These ultrasonic cleaners work by vibrating while jewelry soaks in cleaner, shaking free dirt and grim that you typically struggle to get to with standard cleaners.



A Girl’s First Jewelry Box 0

This year for Christmas, I think I’m going to get my niece her first jewelry box.  This is very exciting for me, because I remember my first jewelry box and how special it felt to organize my jewelry and treasures for the first time.  It’s a kind of right of passage, and I’m excited to be a part of it for my ten year old niece!  So I have been researching jewelry organizers that are perfect for a young girl, and these are some of my finds.  I thought I would share my ideas here, in case anyone else is inspired to get a little girl her first jewelry box.

I just adore this musical jewelry box.  It’s pretty and simple, with just enough space for a young girl’s growing jewelry collection.  It also has a touch of sophistication without looking too grown up.

This one is also just too sweet for a little girl, but it might be a bit young for my ten year old niece.  I would definitely recommend this jewelry organizer for a younger girl:

This one goes in a very different direction from the first, but it’s just so colorful and fun!  The bright two-toned finish is very youthful:

A young girl with an already sizable jewelry collection will need something with a larger capacity.  The design of jewelry armoire is kid appropriate, but it also feels a little more grown up, like mom’s.

But I knew the perfect jewelry box for my 10 year old niece when I saw it, and it was so obvious.  It’s perfect because she’s at a transitional age and this one she can grow into.  It’s pretty and classic, and it will make her feel extra special.


Here is where you can find all of these precious little girls’ jewelry boxes:

1. The Kaitlyn Musical Jewelry Box by Mele & Co.

2. Kelsey Girl’s Musical Ballerina Jewelry Box by Mele & Co.

3. “Stackables” large Jewelry Box by Wolf Designs

4. Chloe Girl’s Pink and White Wooden Jewelry Armoire  by Mele & Co.

5. Cherry Jewelry Box with Lock and Key by 10 Stars

What I want for Christmas part 1 1

We gals love our accessories!  What do I want for Christmas this year?  I want a new jewelry box.  My current jewelry box is OK, but it’s very basic.  Six small square slots where I keep rings and earrings and one long section for necklaces.  While this is better than keeping them in a jumbled heap, it isn’t that much better because they still get tangled and can be difficult to find.

The jewelry organizer I’ve picked out for myself is the Paris Weave Jewelry Box by Ragar.  Whoever designed this one thought of everything, it even has a removable case for travel.  It’s also sleek and modern, yet timeless.

Here are some other home jewelry storage solutions:

This high fashion jewelry armoire is a real statement piece.  It has that mirrored façade that’s become so popular in accent furniture pieces.  It’s reflective and fancy, and pairs well with different kinds of furnishings.

Some gals don’t need a big fancy jewelry organizer, so something like this little spinner would be perfect for holding a few favorite pieces.


For the gal with limited space and a need for multi-functionality, we have a wall mounted jewelry armoire with a mirrored front and slots for pictures.  Here you can store your accessories, make yourself up and display memories.


And last but not least, any gal on the go needs a good travel jewelry case like this one.  Hard sided is great, because it not only serves as a travel jewelry organizer, but as a mini jewelry box wherever you go!

So if you’re struggling to think of a gift for that woman who has everything, or is difficult to shop for, consider the options I’ve shown you here.  Like I said, we gals love our accessories, and most of us have room for another jewelry organizer in our lives.  Happy holiday shopping folks!
Here are my picks for jewelry storage:
1.  Jewelry Box:  Paris Weave Jewelry Box by Ragar
2.  Jewelry Armoire:  Mirrored Silver Wood Jewelry Armoire by Powell
3.  Spinner:  Rain Cosmetic Spinner by InterDesign
1.  Wall Mount Cabinet: Victoria Wall Mount Jewelry Armoire by Proman Products
2.  Travel Case:  Round Leather Jewelry Case with Black Diamond Pattern

Happy Valentine’s Day! 2


A Gift Guide for Jewelry Storage for Everyone on your List!

Ahh, it’s that wonderful time of year again.  No, not Christmas, Valentine’s Day – a day celebrating love of all types, from Moms and Dads to their kids, Grandparents to their Grandchildren, and couples of all ages to each other!  Jewelry storage comes in many different forms, and, just as jewelry itself can be, a jewelry box is a beautiful gift to give on Valentine’s Day. 

Here is a list of some people you may be wanting to shower with gifts, and, for each, a jewelry storage option designed just for them! 

  • Wives and Girlfriends:  A Jewelry Box is an obvious choice.  Choose one in made of hardwood with glass or mirror accents.  If she likes very elegant home décor, dark and light cherry woods are the way to go.  If she has more modern taste, a white painted, black or espresso jewelry box will bring a smile to her face.  If she already has a lot of jewelry, here is a cute idea:  Purchase an inexpensive jewelry organizer, like a jewelry drawer divider tray and wrap it up, but first put her real present (a pair of earrings, or, maybe, a ring?) in it.  She will be thrilled by both of these thoughtful presents. 
  • Dads and Boyfriends:  Yes, some of them have jewelry too.  If not, a Men’s Valet is a nice V Day present – Stacks & Stacks has table top valets and beautiful wooden watch cases.  He will feel loved, important, and it will give him a nice place to set his wallet, keys and cell phone at night (as opposed to the floor) –  a gift to everyone! 
  • Girls and Young Women:  Little girls love musical jewelry boxes, with or without the spinning ballerina!  For older girls, faux leather boxes in cool blues, pinks and browns are a big hit, and can hold anything from jewelry to love notes on their dresser top. 

Handmade Jewelry Gifts the Easy Way 0

A World of Handmade Jewelry at the Click of a Button


Handmade gifts are a fun, beautiful way to show your friends and family love during the holidays.  I have done small beading projects before and given them away to my family, but lately I’m really just too busy to get into lengthy jewelry making projects. 

So, I decided this year to purchase handmade gifts for my family.  At first it sounds like cheating, but when you really think about it, it’s actually not cheating, you are actually doing the whole world a favor.  Here’s why:


Entrepreneurial Spirit:  you are helping out a small business or entrepreneur, which you may think is nicer than helping out huge chain stores.  Who knows, you may even be purchasing something from someone who was laid off and is using their hobby as a way to make money.


Personal, Handmade Benefits:  Some crafters are really nice and will give you the story behind the piece you are buying.  And your family and friends will appreciate that it is handmade, even if not by you!


Quality:  If you find the right store, you can get unbelievable quality.  For example, I really like fused glass jewelry, and the stuff I bought this year was absolutely stunning – Trust me, the photos do not do these pieces justice.


Convenience and Price– With the internet, you don’t even have to go to a crafts fair, you can simply shop online and have it shipped to you.


Where to find handmade jewelry: 

If you don’t have time to go to a crafts fair, I highly suggest this website,– it is basically like ebay but everything is handmade, from candles to clothes and jewelry and even jewelry organizers.  You can even search by zip code if you want to purchase locally.  It is totally awesome, in my opinion.  The picture above shows some handmade jewelry I bought as gifts this year.
