Jewelry is endlessly fun to wear to spice up your outfit, but figuring out how to keep it tidy, accessible, and untangled can certainly be a challenge—and that's where a jewelry organizer comes in.
When shopping around for necklaces, bracelets, and rings, professional organizer Laura Bostrom of Everyday Order recommends thinking about where you'll keep it all. "Evaluate the space you have," she says. "Do you have drawers, counter space, or wall space?"
With two drawers and compartments, our top choice is the Jewelry Organization & Storage Box, a thoughtfully designed collaboration by KonMari and The Container Store.
Here you'll find the very best jewelry organizers, so you can keep your bling looking good.
The Container Store x KonMari Linen Jewelry Organization & Storage Box
Modern yet classic
The best jewelry organizational solution really depends on the size of your collection, where you plan to put it, the specific pieces you own, and your personal design preferences. This collab from The Container Store and KonMari is an all-around excellent option. The compact, yet spacious, box is 14 x 10 x 7 inches, with two drawers, a removable sliding tray, and a whopping 41 compartments of various sizes. That sure is a lot of jewelry!
You'll have a designated spot for all your rings, charms, bracelets, watches, earrings, and, yes, even Grandma's heirloom broaches. While you can place necklaces in the larger compartments, Bostrom notes that they're best stored entirely flat or hung from a hook to prevent tangling.
The Jewelry Organization & Storage Box is made of MDF (medium-density fiberboard), paperboard and ash wood, then all of it is wrapped in soft off-white linen for a sophisticated look. The understated design is a perfect balance of modern and classic, complementing any bedroom, bathroom, or closet decor scheme. While we know it's a little pricey for an accessories organizer, we think it's definitely worth the investment.

Pottery Barn Stella Extra-Large Ultimate Jewelry Box
If you need something bigger, we recommend Pottery Barn's Stella Ultimate Jewelry Box. This generously sized piece is 18 inches wide, 9 inches tall, and 9 inches deep. Plus, it has three drawers, each with lots of compartments for organizing individual pieces, plus a lid that opens up to reveal more easy-access chambers.
In traditional jewelry box fashion, the lid also has a mirror on the inside so you can take a look at yourself before making a final choice. This high-quality organizational solution is made of MDF with a simple white-lacquered finish and luxurious velvet lining. The price is pretty steep, but we think you'll get your money's worth.

Urban Outfitters Alula Jewelry Stand Catch-All Dish
Three colors available
Prone to rust
Interested in a catch-all storage solution? Check out the Alula Jewelry Stand from Urban Outfitters. At 10 x 9.5 x 4 inches, it's relatively compact, with two bars and 18 individual hooks for hanging necklaces and bracelets.
The tray base is just the thing to hold all of your earrings, rings, watches, and just about any other accessory you take off at the end of the day. Available in silver, black, or gold, this piece is made of 100 percent iron. While it's nice and sturdy, the metal is prone to rust. But that's an easy solve: Just don't show it off in a bathroom or other moisture-prone area.

Tangle-free necklace storage

For those who prefer traditional jewelry boxes, we recommend Made by Mary. Measuring 9.5 x 4.5 x 4.5 inches, this carefully designed container is compact yet roomy with many thoughtful features. It opens to reveal three removable trays with multi-sized compartments and 40 ring slots, plus seven hooks for tangle-free necklace and bracelet storage.
There's also a catch-all pouch with two inserts for such things as stray earrings and loose accessories. This jewelry organizer has a cream or honey-colored, vegan leather exterior, and soft microfiber lining. All things considered, we just wish it were a little more affordable.

Stackers Classic Jewelry Box Collection
Modular and layerable
Plush velvet lining
Several color options
Can be pricey
Stackers make the best vertical organizers. The Classic Jewelry Box Collection is modular and, yes, stackable, so you always have the option to add more trays to your collection. You can get trays of varying depths with different compartments, making it easy to create a designated spot for every single jewelry piece, including that emerald ring and your favorite gold-initial necklace.
This box is made of MDF with a vegan leather exterior and plush velvet lining that's gentle on your jewelry. It comes in several colors, too, ranging from gray to mint to blush. While the starter sets are reasonably priced, the collection can definitely add up as you continue collecting pieces.

Costway Wall Door Mounted Mirrored Jewelry Cabinet Storage Organizer
Good for large collections
Not sure where to put your large jewelry collection? "Think about using the often-overlooked space behind your door," says Bostrom. With sturdy construction and two over-the-door hooks, the Costway Door Mounted Jewelry Cabinet was designed for this exact purpose. This sizable storage solution has 25 hooks for bracelets and necklaces, 40 ring slots, holes for up to 60 pairs of earrings, three shelves for miscellaneous items, and a makeup mirror to boot. Sounds pretty good, right?
What's more, the door closes to reveal a nearly full-length mirror. "If it's in your closet, you can easily pair your jewelry with an outfit in one spot," adds Bostrom. Just a heads up: The unit is a hefty 15 pounds, not including everything you store in it, so it'll add serious weight to your door.

Origia Magic Stackable Jewelry Trays
If you want something you can place inside your vanity, dresser, or bathroom drawers, Origia Magic Trays might be your best bet. Available in neutral black or gray colorways, they come in sets of five trays of varying sizes. You can stack them on top of each other, place them side by side, or use them separately.
These sturdy jewelry trays are made of MDF with vegan leather exteriors, cushioned bases, and polyester fabric linings. We like that they have various compartments for laying necklaces flat, organizing earrings, and securing rings. The set comes with a flimsy plastic lid for the upper tray, but you may not even use it if you place it in your drawers.

Best for Necklaces
Heesch Acrylic Necklace Hanger
Nail or adhesive mounting
Adhesive takes 24 hours to cure
Necklaces can be tricky to store. But if you love your neck gear and you have a lot of it, Bostrom says it should be laid flat or hung. This organizer will help you do the latter. Made of acrylic with 12 knobs per row, the Heesch Necklace Hanger is an affordable and simple storage solution that ensures tangle-free hanging of chains, pendants, and beading.
These 13.5-inch rows of hooks come in packs of two or four in your choice of clear or pink. They can be nailed to the wall or attached with the included adhesive. Just know that the adhesive takes 24 hours to cure, so you'll want to hold off before hanging anything.

SS Jewelry Mid-Century Modern Ring Organizer Rack

Several colors available
No soft lining
Interested in designated ring storage? Bostrom says Etsy is a great place to look—it's where we found the Ring Organizer Rack from the shop SS Jewelry. This piece is handcrafted from recycled polyethylene, a super-durable synthetic resin.
It doesn't have the soft protective lining of many other jewelry organizers, but there are 48 individual ring slots of varying widths. While many made-to-order items from Etsy take weeks to ship out, we appreciate that this one has a turnaround time of under 24 hours. Plus, you can choose from several colors ranging from charcoal to green to white.

Best for Travel
World Market Teal Faux Leather Leopard Travel Jewelry Box
Limited colors and designs
What about when you're traveling? World Market has the perfect solution. The Leopard Travel Jewelry Box is a compact 4 x 4 x 2 inches with soft felt lining, a protective faux leather exterior, and a zipper closure.
Inside are four compartments, a six-slot ring organizer, three hangers for necklaces and bracelets, and a pouch for odds and ends. We're big fans of the teal background and leopard motif, though we realize it may not be everyone's cup of tea. There's also a floral blush option, but it would be nice if there were a few more designs to choose from.

Overall, we like the Linen Jewelry Organization & Storage Box from The Container Store x KonMari. The compact yet spacious design boasts 41 individual compartments and a versatile modern-meets-classic aesthetic. But if you're on a budget, the multifaceted X-Cosrack 5-Tier Jewelry Organizer Stand is a solid choice that won't break the bank.
What to Look for in a Jewelry Organizer
Think about how you want to organize your jewelry. Do you want a storage system that displays your collection for everyone to see, or do you want something that's locked shut? Do you have space on your vanity or countertop, or is a wall-mounted option better? "Over-the-door, closet rod, Command Hooks, stacking trays, jewelry boxes, wall organizers from Etsy—you name it, they have it," says Laura Bostrom, a professional organizer and the owner of Everyday Order.
"I love to store jewelry on a dresser or shelf so that it looks like a store window display," Master Certified KonMari Consultant Emi Louie tells The Spruce. "A jewelry stand or tree allows you to display and enjoy your jewelry when you are not using it." That's why we recommend the stylish Urban Outfitters Alula Jewelry Stand, because it's stocked with two bars and 18 individual hooks for hanging bracelets and necklaces. Louie also recommends "individual trays that can be stacked into a jewelry box or laid out individually across a closet shelf, the top of a dresser, or even in a drawer," which gives you flexibility and versatility in case your collection grows or changes over time.
If your jewelry organizer is going to be on display, it's key to make sure that its look matches with its setting. Some storage solutions are more minimalist in nature, while others can be more elaborate and serve as an art object in a room. Take for instance, Pottery Barn's stylish Stella Ultimate Jewelry Box, which has three drawers and plenty of compartments. You can even add your monogram to make it more of a showpiece!
When considering the style of a piece, think about where you're planning to place the organizer in your home—your bathroom, your bedroom, or maybe a side table near your front door. Then, look at the color and material of the organizer, and imagine how it would look there.
When shopping for an organizer, consider the types of jewelry you own and wear most frequently, to ensure that the one you pick has the right organization options for you. Different types of jewelry require different methods of storage. “Some organizers will work better than others, depending on what your collection looks like,” says designer Cindy Kaiser, owner of jewelry line La Kaiser. “If you have a large ring collection, then it would be beneficial to find an organizer that was designed to hold many rings and just a few earrings or pendants.”
Considering the compartments and lining the organizer has comes into play here, too. Kaiser notes that you ultimately want an organizer that's easy to access and keeps all items untangled. “A lot of organizers just have generic one-shape-fits-all compartments that don’t actually do a great job of keeping your pieces organized," says Kaiser. When it comes to lining, Kaiser recommends finding an organizer with a faux suede lining on the inside. “It’s soft and will keep your jewels nicely protected from scratches and other mishaps.”
How do you organize a large amount of jewelry?
"You can use an over-the-door jewelry organizer to fit a lot of necklaces and bracelets," says Bostrom, adding that placing one in your closet makes it easy to coordinate outfits with jewelry. "You can also use Command Hooks on the wall for a simple and cost-effective way to organize jewelry." Bostrom likes stacking trays, too, as they offer a compact solution for placement inside drawers, atop dressers, or on countertops.
What is the best way to store necklaces to prevent tangling?
"Necklaces should be laid flat or hung," says Bostrom. "Try an over-the-door jewelry organizer to store necklaces, or grab a box of Command Hooks for your wall." To lay your necklaces flat, look for trays with large compartments that allow plenty of room for chains.
What material is best to store jewelry in?
Many jewelry organizers are lined with a soft material, like velvet, felt, silk, satin, or microfiber. This helps to protect the metal, beads, and stones from scratches. It's fine to store jewelry in wood or plastic. But a plastic container shouldn't be completely sealed shut, as that can trap moisture and tarnish metals.
How do you store jewelry so it doesn't tarnish?
Preventing jewelry from tarnishing is all about keeping moisture out. That's why stashing it in a humid-prone bathroom is generally not recommended. A storage container lined with felt or microfiber is ideal, as the materials absorb excess moisture. You can also place silica gel packets within the box or trays for a similar effect.
