Product of the Week: Jewelry Storage for Dorm Living 0

If you’re heading off to college this year, it’s a good time to start planning.

You’ve most likely got a month at this point to start preparing for your new college life.  It’s an exciting time, maybe even a little bit scary.  But there’s nothing to fear about the unknown, college was a memorable and sweet time for most people who have experienced it.

Take this time to start getting organized and figuring out what you’ll need on your new journey.  Dorm life is very different from living at home with your parents.  You will be faced with the challenge of taking on grown up responsibilities like paying your own bills and keeping your space organized.  But don’t worry, it’s not rocket science!

If you have a lot of jewelry, you won’t be able to keep a large jewelry box in your dorm room.  There just isn’t enough space!  But that doesn’t mean you can’t keep all of your adornments and accessories with you when you go to college – you just need a smart organizing solution for them.

The Remy Forty-Eight Section Jewelry Box is perfect for any college bound girl.


Can you believe there are actually forty eight sections in this cute little jewelry case?  It is very well designed, to maximize storage capacity while maintaining a compact and portable design.  A removable tray with divided compartments is just one way to keep rings and earrings organized.  Your statement pieces like big dangly earrings will easily fit in the gusseted lid pocket.  And every other imaginable combination is possible – just do whatever fits best.

Best of all, this jewelry box is portable, so you don’t have to pack up your jewelry for trips back home to see the folks.  Simply grab your case and take the whole thing with you?  This way, you’ll also be assured that your jewelry is safe while you’re away.

The Many Ways to Organize Jewelry 0

When it comes to jewelry organizers, there’s something for everyone!

When choosing a jewelry box or jewelry organizer, the wealth of choices can be welcomed, but also a tad overwhelming!  How to choose depends on what you need, where you are going to put it, what your style is, how much jewelry you have, and on and on.  Check out my tips and reviews of different types of jewelry organizers below to find out which one will work best for you (or your significant other, if you are gift shopping).

Wooden Jewelry Boxes – These are the more traditional form of jewelry organizing, been around for centuries and centuries, keeping jewelry safe, neat and tidy.  Choose a hardwood box for long term jewelry storage.  A wooden jewelry box can come in any shape or form, from traditional square and rectangular models to round and half moons.

A box that incorporates glass doors or see through tops gives the most visual appeal.  A box with a mirror is nice, both storing your gems and helping you put them on!  And, for girls from 5 to 85, a musical jewelry box simply can’t be beat.  Choose a theme song that represents your life, or simply puts a smile on your face!

Fabric and Leather Jewelry Boxes – These are a great alternative to wood, perfect for the bathroom counter or dresser top for your most frequently used jewelry!  And the possibilities are endless with these, including pinks, blacks, greens and more.  Choose from large chocolate brown leather boxes and small open boxes.

Travel Jewelry Organizers – on the go, keep your most precious gems safe from loss and tangles with a great travel jewelry organizers.  These are available in every size and material, from small leather wallet size jewelry cases to full size organizers for most of your collection!

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

Your Dream Jewelry Box 0

Are you looking for a new way to organize your jewelry and accessories?  Is your jewelry collection outgrowing your current jewelry box?  Do you want to make your jewelry easier to find and access so you don’t forget certain pieces?  I’m going to share some jewelry storage ideas and favorite products to renew your interest in jewelry organization.  It’s no secret that keeping your jewelry tidy, untangled and easy to access is important.  Especially for those of us who spend a pretty penny on adornments.

My first tip is to sort and prioritize the pieces in your jewelry box.  Separate your finer pieces from casual and costume jewelry.  Alternatively, you can sort your jewelry pieces by color or style.  This makes jewelry selection faster and easier in the morning when you’re getting ready or in the evening as you’re rushing out for a date or evening at the theater.

When it comes to selecting a jewelry box, armoire, cabinet or other organizer, I believe a good one should have at least four drawers – no less.  Obviously one for earrings, one for bracelets, one for necklaces and one for rings.  Ideally, a good jewelry organizer will have a place to hang necklaces rather than letting them lay in a drawer.  You will also want it to have other pockets and places to keep accessories like pins, brooches, pendants, etc.  Cuff bracelets can be challenging to store, because most jewelry organizers don’t have deep enough drawers for them.  The most creative solution I have seen for this, is to store your cuffs on a countertop paper towel holder.

No matter what your home jewelry storage requirements are, you need to make sure you find the perfect one for you!

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

New Product Alert! The Zoey Wall Mount Jewelry Mirror 0

Anytime a new organizing product for jewelry comes available, I like to put it to the test.  As an organizing freak, it’s my hobby to stay up to date on the latest products that keep our lives tidy and sensible.  Jewelry storage is especially fascinating to me because, well, first of all I’m a woman and also because there are so many solutions for storing jewelry available today.  To me, the smartest way to organize jewelry is by using wall space.  There are several ways to do this, with products like wall mounted hooks and wall mounted jewelry cabinets like the Zoey Wall Mount Jewelry Mirror.  The decorative mirror front conceals a cabinet with multiple hangers for necklaces, earrings, etc.

That’s pretty standard for a wall jewelry cabinet – I mean, they all come with hooks for hanging jewelry, but this one has the style factor that you don’t see in many jewelry wall racks.   Its clean and modern design impressed me the most.  And best of all, like every wall mounted organizer, you save space on the dresser or bathroom vanity.  Whether you live in a large home or a small one, there is always a good reason to be concerned about space efficiency when it comes to jewelry organizers.  Why let your whole house be overrun by jewelry and jewelry boxes if you don’t need to?

Acrylic Jewelry Organizers 0

For an affordable alternative to traditional wooden jewelry boxes that still has the same elegant quality, acrylic jewelry organizers simply can’t be beat!  Acrylic is a great choice for jewelry storage for many reasons.  First, it is an ultra durable material.  Much stronger than the regular plastic you are used to, acrylic is much thicker, offering extra protection of your favorite gems.  It is also easy to clean and dust.  Simply wipe it clean with a damp rag or wash cloth for an instant cleaning job.

Deluxe Jewelry Chest - 7 Drawers

Deluxe Jewelry Chest – 7 Drawers

But beyond that, probably the best thing about acrylic jewelry boxes is that they are crystal clear.  Just as clear as glass, these handy organizers allow you to see what jewelry is available to you without even having to open any doors or drawers.  It also makes it a great choice for display if you make jewelry as a hobby and like to sell or display to friends.  And because acrylic is such a versatile material, it can literally be made into any shape or size that is desired.  So there are countless different styles of acrylic jewelry organizers on the market.  My personal pick is this jewelry Chest – Deluxe 7 Drawer because it is large enough for almost an entire collection.  Another great thing about it is the lined drawers.  This is a must when you are dealing with precious stones and metals to keep things from scratching and to keep them from tarnishing.  The elegant drawer pulls and oversized top give it the feel of a traditional dresser, which I think makes it the perfect choice for keeping jewelry in the bedroom.  The extra wide design means that you can lay necklaces flat for the safest storage of them with no tangles or breakage.  Other acrylic jewelry boxes I’ve seen include smaller, single tiered ones with dividers for smaller items like earrings.  What’s your jewelry storage style?

Acrylic Jewelry Organizers Keep All in View 0

In my humble opinion, acrylic jewelry organizers are most definitely the best of the best when it comes to keeping your valuable accessories organized in an easy-to-find manner. These jewelry organizers come in a variety of shapes and sizes with many different purposes, but they are all simply my favorite when it comes to organizing my jewelry.

Earring Organizer, Acrylic, Holds 210 Pairs

Earring Organizer, Acrylic, Holds 210 Pairs

The best thing about acrylic jewelry organizers is that they have an awesome modern style that catches the eye nearly as much as the jewelry contained within! Of course, it helps that they are clear, making it easy to see the jewelry that is inside, saving me tons of time searching through tiny jewelry drawers.

The very first acrylic jewelry box I ever purchased is the Acrylic Jewelry Chest – Deluxe Acrylic Jewelry Box, which provides seven levels of storage for any kind of jewelry. This jewelry box came complete with soft foam inserts that are perfect for keeping the jewelry in pristine condition while being stored.

After I bought this jewelry box, I knew I needed to add more acrylic jewelry storage to my bedroom. The next item I purchased is the Earring Organizer, Acrylic, Holds 210 Pairs. I have many, many earrings so being able to hold every single one in an easy to locate place was a great convenience for me. This organizer has that same great contemporary look that acrylic provides. The only problem is that now I have filled up this organizer and have to find an additional organizer for any future earrings.

The Earring File is the earring storage accessory that I finally decided to go with, as it adds very similar style storage of earrings but holds 90 earrings. Hopefully this acrylic jewelry storage accessory will suffice for a few years, until I have collected even more earrings.
