Organizing Your Jewelry

Updated on April 26, 2014


Organizing Your Jewelry

Searching for ideas on how to organize everyday jewelry to get the biggest exposure and use of accessories? Here are a few ideas.

  • Accessories often make the outfit. Scarves, necklaces, and bracelets can take the most basic of outfits and turn them into something special. Accessories can also extend our wardrobe depending on what it is partnered with and can prove a great way to stretch anyone’s clothing budget.


  • Expensive jewelry should be kept in a safe and secure place, but what about the costume jewelry that needs to be worn and enjoyed? Belts can make an outfit, but often they are pushed to the back of the closet. Scarves are expensive and can dress up the simplest outfits. They are purchased as a great finishing piece to an outfit, but could be used to change to refresh an older shirt, tee, or dress. Scarves add interest to hair, purses, belts, and blouses.


  • Thinking about how to make a fashion statement, jewelry and scarves are usually tucked away which is good for a neat closet, but expensive accessories may be quickly forgotten about if they are out of site

  • Organizing will get those items out in the open. Some of you options to purchase are:


  1. There are cute display pieces, but they usually take up space on a table or dresser and may get dusty or knocked over.
  2. The clear plastic bag type sold at many stores are great if you have a limited amount of jewelry and plan on taking out pieces as new ones are acquired. These usually come in a large bag for a closet or a small version for travel.
  3. There are some great full length mirror cabinets that are a great solution, but are very pricey. (A person with woodworking skills could make this and cut the price by half or more).
  4. There are the picture frame type with wire strung across from side to side, but holds very little and is often expensive depending on the type of frame, and if it was handcrafted. These have their place, but wouldn’t work for a person who is in love with their jewelry. These are mainly for a few pieces that are used often or inherited person on display.
  5. The standalone type of jewelry chess is great, but only limited number of necklaces can be hung before layers of necklaces hide and tangle the delicate chains.
  6. Dressers with jewelry shelves are great, but again the jewelry is usually out of sight and out of mind.
  7. You can use push pins and a cork board to hang necklaces.
  8. Use small bowls for necklaces, if there is a large level place to put them.
  9. There are clear plastic loops that you can purchase to add additional space for scarves.

Tools needed may be:


  • Wood Strips
  • Drill
  • Nails
  • Screws
  • Cup hooks for some designs
  • Measuring tape for deciding the amount of room for total use as well as planned space for scarves, necklaces, purses, depending on what items require the most space.
  • Cork board for some designs
  • Push pins to hold necklaces is also an option.
  • Mismatched door knobs can be mounted to hand long necklaces.

Think the project through. Look at organizers online, in stores, and magazines. It’s easy to put your personality and the clothes that are unique out in the open. Don’t buy accessories just to wear once. Expand your storage space while using your best accessories more often.

Fun Ideas

There are a world of ideas out there. One of the cutest is stacking bracelets on the neck of old soda or wine bottles.

Put a curtain rod in your bathroom and the items will be there first thing in the morning as you dress, plus you have a mirror to check it out.

Take a hanger that is covered with material - especially across the bar and use it as necklace storage. If you don't have a walk-in closet, it can keep the necklaces handy while dressing.
