Silver Jewelry Box

Jewelry or Jewellery Boxes

I remember receiving a wind-up musical jewelry box for Christmas one year when I was about 8 or 9 years old. I don't even remember if I had any toy jewelry to store in it, but I vividly remember how I immensely adored the twirling ballerina dancing to the music inside the box. I am reminded of that feeling of sheer joy of receiving a jewelry box now when a family friend gave a plastic toy jewelry box to my 3 and a half-year-old daughter and I saw the look of pure delight in her face.

Jewelry boxes have a practical use and purpose as protective storage for your jewelry, valuables and other trinkets. However, jewelry boxes can often be more than that. They are often heirlooms passed down from generation to generation and are commonly given as gifts during various special occasions such as Christmas, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, engagements and other milestone dates. Their value can equal or surpass the jewelry they store in terms of sentiments and cherished memories and even the beauty in the expert craftsmanship of the individual boxes. Because of this, jewelry boxes also make for a popular collection item.

Jewelry boxes produced prior to the era of mass production (early 1900s) are without a doubt extremely valuable as they all handcrafted, unique pieces. Today, jewelry boxes come in many styles, designs, sizes and materials, with wood being the most popular material. These are all the things you should consider before you decide to purchase a jewelry box.

Girls' Jewelry Boxes

I don't think I know any little girls who do not like anything that sparkles, is pink or princess-themed. A toy jewelry box would make any little girl happy because she gets to feel and act like a grown-up. If it plays music, features a figurine of a ballerina, a fairy or a princess, and is pink, purple or pastel, it's probably perfect. Some toy jewelry boxes even come with a complete set of toy jewelry and gemstones. This would be one winning gift for your precious little princess.



Women's Jewelry Boxes

If you want buy a jewelry box to keep your jewelry properly stored, organized and protected, consider these:

Jewelry boxes, cabinets or armoires for women

1) How much and what kinds of jewelry do you have? The amount of jewelry you have will determine the size of jewelry box you will need. If you have a lot, you might want to consider buying a bigger box or a jewelry chest or armoire instead. Do you have only a couple kinds of jewelry, say, silver and gold? In that case, you might want to get two smaller boxes to keep them separated. If you have several kinds of jewelry such as rings, necklaces, bracelets and broaches, look for a jewelry chest or armoire (or two!) that has many compartments and drawers.

2) What kind of material and design would best suit your décor and taste? Jewelry boxes nowadays can be made from wood, leather, fabric, crystal, plastic, aluminum, glass, brass, etc. Wooden jewelry boxes are popular because they can be carved, engraved, etched and inlaid, which offers you endless opportunities for a more customized look. Also, wooden jewelry boxes such as those made from teak, mahogany, cherry and maple go well with any kind of décor. Designs range from elegant Victorian designs to homey, country to sleek and modern. Choose the kind that would add personality to your overall décor.

Men's Valet Boxes

For men, valet boxes are available as storage for watches, cufflinks, tie clips and pins, pens and more. Many valet boxes now come with electronic chargers for devices such as cell phones, blackberrys and ipods. These are usually professional looking and made of leather or wood in earth tones like black, beige, brown, teal and charcoal gray. They will make a perfect gift for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations or any other special occasions.

Jewelry Armoires 5 years ago

thanks for the prweb news. Great hub on jewelry boxes. To me, investing in a jewelry armoire is the best investment if you have a lot of jewelry. Jewelry armoires are not expensive. Some are less than a jewelry boxes.
