So, in honor of the holiday, take a look at some of our favorite jewelry storage options that will make you just as excited to put away your jewelry as you are to put it on!

With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, it’s a great time to think about storing your jewelry and the best options available. While costume jewelry is often bulky and difficult to store in a traditional way, these beautiful jewelry boxes are perfect for cocktail rings, your grandmother’s pearls, and the delicate necklaces and bracelets you’ve accumulated over the years. Here are my favorites:
The Wolf Palermo Large Jewelry Box includes 15 storage compartments, 2 watch cuffs, 3 ring rolls and lots of drawers. Under typical storage conditions, the special LusterLoc fabric lining inside the jewelry box will prevent tarnishing for up to 35 years. $449 https://www.wolf1834.com/item/213093/womens-jewelry-boxes/
Get Hooked! Hooks are incredibly useful when it comes to storing jewelry. They are the optimal way to store long necklaces to ensure they don’t get knotted. Invest in beautiful decorative hooks to match your jewelry!
Clear it Up For very small items, a clear plastic storage unit is a neat way to store and survey all of your jewelry. Try one like this. And you may want to fill one compartment with extra earring backs…just in case you lose one.
Don’t’ forget: visibility is key! If you don’t see what you have, you won’t wear it!
Hang On There are many attractive jewelry-specific “trees,” stands, and “hands,” that are neat jewelry storage solutions, and often quite beautiful.
Dress It Up Drawers are a visually pleasing way to view all the jewelry you have, and also keep it out of sight when not needed. Try a small dresser with many shallow drawers.
Don’t Get Board Straw and cork boards provide a way to survey your jewelry all at once and prevent knotting.
Serve It Up A pretty way to organize jewelry on a dresser or armoire is in small teacups or dishes. This is especially helpful for the go-to earrings, bracelets, or watch that you wear daily.
For The Closet Try a hanging jewelry organizer like this one.
Do-It Yourself For a different approach, bulky bangles can be stored on simple paper towel holders, or even empty glass bottles!
Outside The Box There are alternative ways to artfully hang your jewelry, while also repurposing household supplies in a more artistic way. Try using picture frames, utensil organizers, or even doorknobs for creative approach.
