Whether you’re a fashion-forward neat freak or more laissez-faire in your organizational approach, we’ve got you covered with six storage ideas that are as stylish as your jewelry collection itself.
1. The Drawer
You are: Classy, in control, and enviably organized.
Your style icon: Jackie O.
Why this will work for you: A single glance lets you take in all your pieces, which you’ve already grouped by metal type, color, style, and weight.
What it’s good for: Sizable bangles and cuffs; big, bold cocktail rings.
What you’ll need: A cleaned-out drawer or a multidrawer jewelry box, plus drawer organizers.
2. The Drape
You are: Cool in an effortless, devil-may-care way.
Your style icon: Jane Birkin.
Why this will work for you: Who has time to procure a proper necklace tree? You’d rather adorn whichever objet suits your fancy once you’ve retired for the night.
What it’s good for: Any pieces lovely enough to double as decor, but especially easy-to-tangle multistrand necklaces.
What you’ll need: A table mirror or a small sculpture.
3. The Box
You are: Amazing at tiptoeing the line between form and function. (We’re dying to see your shoe closet!)
Your style icon: Audrey Hepburn.
Why this will work for you: Organization at its most beautiful, a clear box shows off your prettiest trinkets and looks good while doing so.
What it’s good for: Smaller pieces that lie fairly flat.
What you’ll need: A multidrawer Lucite box or a set of lidded glass boxes.
4. The Tray
You are: Well intentioned, style savvy, and a whole lot of fun.
Your style icon: Brigitte Bardot.
Why this will work for you: It corrals your collection with little effort and makes you look infinitely more organized than you really are (shh!).
What it’s good for: Your go-to favorites currently in heavy rotation.
What you’ll need: A pretty tray (or four) with slightly raised edges to keep everybody on the boat.
5. The Pinup
You are: Creative, a little crafty, and—stop us if you’ve heard this before—a total Pinterest addict.
Your style icon: Bettie Page (of course).
Why this will work for you: Not only is it a new DIY project for you to tackle, but it is also a great space saver and lets you easily survey all your prettiest pieces.
What it’s good for: Statement bracelets and necklaces; dangly earrings.
What you’ll need: A place to pin (we love linen-wrapped composite Homasote boards if your walls won’t do) and some pretty pushpins.
6. The Display
You are: Fearlessly fashion-forward and always accessorized to a T.
Your style icon: Elizabeth Taylor.
Why this will work for you: Wildly proud (and rightfully so) of your baubles, you’ll love showing them off like the pieces of art they are.
What it’s good for: Just about everything.
What you’ll need: Bowls for bracelets, an objet for hanging necklaces, and a shelf or étagère on which you can curate this tableau.
