No one would call organizing easy, but it’s something we all must learn—and something some of us learn better than others. But even the best organizers among us will struggle with certain items, and one of the trickiest groups of items to properly organize is small trinkets, particularly delicate or fine jewelry.
Storing fine jewelry (or anything else that’s small and holds value, sentimental or otherwise) isn’t as straightforward as it seems. You want to store your small items safely, of course, in a manner that protects them from getting lost, accumulating dust, or otherwise suffering damage. But you also want to keep your small items accessible, so you can wear or use them whenever you want. Finally, you want your smaller trinkets—particularly if they’re beautiful or striking—on display: You’ve collected these items, and it’s a bit of a waste to not keep them in a visible spot.
So how can you keep your smaller items organized in a safe, protected, accessible, visible way without contributing to any clutter issues? Yes, there the classic solutions: smart jewelry organizers and jewelry organization tips and tricks, to name a few. But there’s also a new, flashy answer to your small-item-storage woes, and it comes from an Insta-famous source: Open Spaces.
Open Spaces—the producer of that shockingly gorgeous shoe rack you’ve seen all over the internet—has launched a new line of organizational containers designed to store even your smallest trinkets in a way that’s both beautiful and functional. The new collection, dubbed (fittingly) Storage Gems, is a series of stackable, luxe crystalline containers that are perfect storage spots for your ring collection, your daily jewelry, or even the decorative pins you just can’t let go of.
The containers themselves are gorgeous: The acrylic make looks high-end without seeming delicate—because you don’t want a storage tool that you’re afraid to use for fear of breaking it—and the jewel-toned tinting is designed to be colorful while still allowing you to see what’s inside, so you’ll always be able to find what you’re looking for without having to open each box. The containers are available in four colors (amber, pink, blue, and green) sold in color-coordinated packs, so you can select the color scheme that works best in your space and with your items.
The Storage Gems collection doesn’t just boast beauty. The containers have some brainy functionality, too. All the containers—called Gems—are stackable, so you can save on surface space while still making the most of the modular boxes. You have the option to use the Gems with or without lids, so you can adapt your set-up to suit the items being stored. A Gem without a lid might be perfect for storing cotton balls in the bathroom or paper clips on your desk, while one with a lid will keep your bracelets corralled and findable.
Pretty enough to be on full display on your desk, vanity, or dresser and useful enough to handle your bathroom storage needs, the new Storage Gems line might just be the small-item organizational system you’ve been searching for.
Storage Gems by Open Spaces are now available in Short and Tall sizes—which just adds to the organizational potential—and are sold in 2- or 4-piece bundles, priced at $36 and $64, respectively. Visit the Open Spaces site for more details.
