Accessories are notoriously hard to organize. If you just throw them into a bowl, your earrings will lose their pairs, your necklaces will get tangled, and your watches and bracelets can get chipped and tangled up in your other jewelry. And that’s no way to treat your gold, silver, diamonds or even costume pieces! Tangled jewelry can not only lose you time getting dressed in the morning but can damage or ruin jewelry that you truly care for.

When it comes to choosing the right jewelry organizer...MORE for your needs, think about how much jewelry you have and where you have room to store it, whether that’s inside a closet or drawer, on top of a dresser or bathroom vanity, or as a decorative feature within your room. Compartments are key for keeping items organized and damage-free, and you have lots of options including velvet-lined drawers, hooks and zippered pouches to keep tricky accessories in place. Depending on how much jewelry you have, you may choose to have a small jewelry box for just a few frequently-used accessories, a large one for storing a big collection, or even a tiny travel jewelry organizer that helps you carry choice pieces while you’re on vacation or a business trip. We hope you’ll find a jewelry organizer here to meet your needs!
