New Ways to Organize Your Jewelry

Updated on October 16, 2014

Ideas For Storing Jewelry

Ladies, how many times have you gotten dressed, reached for your jewelry box, searched for your bracelet or necklace only to find it in a heap of chains, all tangled with each other? You can't tell what's what so you just give up. And the earrings, well just forget it...you can find one, also wrapped in the chains, but the other one is nowhere to be found.

You tell your husband that you have been ready for an hour but you have been working on un-raveling all those chains. It is just plain frustrating.

I love my jewelry. Most of it is costume jewelry but I love it all. Especially my earrings. Have you gone through your jewelry box only to find that several earrings are missing? Here are some ideas to help you get organized. You want that pair of pearls? Well now you'll know right where they are.

Ever Thought of Using a Tackle Box ?

These work great and they are CHEAP!

My husband is a fishing "nut case" and loves his fishing tackle. If ever we travel we always hit the Bass Pro Shops or Cabela's. I can't tell you how many tackle boxes and little fishing lure organizers he has bought over the years. But, needless to say he would not live long enough to use all this stuff so,over time I have "borrowed" several of his little lure organizers. Psst..he still doesn't know they are missing.

I especially love them for my earrings. Each little compartment holds one pair so they never get tangled with another piece of jewelry. They stack easily in your dresser drawer OR if you are real brave you can also "borrow" his tackle box and store all your little lure organizers in one case.

Try it out ladies. You'll see how handy they are and how easy it is to organize all your little small pieces of jewelry.

The Unusual

My brother bought me a bracelet as a birthday gift one year which was rather unusual because the year before he brought me home a camel saddle. Oh, and how about the time I got red long johns with a drop seat in them. So, the bracelet has been a treasured gift for a very long time. He put the gift in a little straw, circular box. I love that little box as much as I do the bracelet.

These little treasures don't hold much but they can look so beautiful on your dressor, in the kitchen windowsill or even on a shelf in the bathroom. There are so many options as far as materials and sizes. Little straw boxes, glass boxes, antique tea strainers or pretty little jars.

If you are giving jewelry as a gift this year find a pretty little box to put it in and this piece of jewelry will have a home and that person will know exactly where it is at all times. Unless, of course, they are wearing it.

The Jewelry Tree

I saved the best for last

Jewelry Trees. They are just the perfect thing for the jewelry that you wear all the time. I have several pairs of earrings but seem to put the same ones on over and over again. You never get tired of your favorites.

If you have some favorite pieces that you want to show off, this is the perfect venue. Not only does the jewelry tree look nice sitting on your dressor the pieces of jewelry that you most often reach for are at your fingertips. I love my jewerly tree.

This photo is a picture of the one I found. Believe it or not, I found mine at TJ Maxx. Just a fluke I am sure and of course there was only one which made my daughter extremely jealous.

      Using a tackel box is a great idea, and it would even work well for traveling. Thanks for this idea.

      I have a few small boxes, stacked, with each necklace in a little ziploc bag. Costume stuff. I do need a better system!

      I just bought a jewelry organizer for my wall. Only costume jewelry will go there but it's still handy.

      Wow, what a great idea. I've never seen a jewelry organizer like that, I've only seen that kind of thing for shoes. Another great thing about that is you are not taking up precious drawer space or dresser top space, Thanks for the excellent tip.

      I have a hanging jewelry holder in my closet. It has clear plastic pockets on both sides to hold necklaces, earrings, bracelets, etc. I LOVE it because you can easily see all of your jewelry options at a glance. And nothing gets tangled. I've tried jewelry armoires and trees which were fine, but I always had a hard time seeing my options.

      Wonderful lens. The tackle box is a great idea! I also just bought my friend an earring tree that i found at a discount store. She loves it and it holds her earrings perfectly.

      @anonymous: The jewelry tree is great for chains and I agree with the clear tops so you can see what you have.

      Sadly, I don't organize them as well as I can. I do, however, put earrings on a piece of cardboard, with the posts poked through, so at least they are always as a pair, and I don't put necklaces and earrings in the same place. Chains are the biggest problem. I really like the tackle box idea. There are craft stores that sell similar boxes, but way more expensive. Clear tops help too, so you can see without lifting the lid.
