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.

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.
