Tips for Organizing Your Jewelry and Jewelry Box

Having your jewelry and jewelry box organized and ready to wear makes it so easy to find the perfect item to pair with your outfits before going out. It is easy to set aside an afternoon to get all of your jewelry cleaned up and organized. Take a moment to clean each item before storing. Here are 4 tips to help you.

1. When it comes to organizing your necklaces it is important to sit down and untangle them all and make sure there is no damage to any of your necklaces. The best way to organize necklaces is to hang one or two (at most) on one hook in a jewelry box or jewelry amoire. If you decide to store them laying down in a jewelry box, they should be in their own compartment and not thrown on top of other jewelry pieces. Big beaded necklaces, necklaces iwth large pendants and collar-style necklaces should always be hung up.

2. Organizing your bracelets is easy to do. You can hang up to 3 bracelets onto one hook in your jewelry box or jewelry armoire. Beaded bracelets and bangle style bracelets can be hung up or laid flat into the bottom of a jewelry box or drawer. A bracelet bar would be a great investment if you have a lot of them, or fashion one of your own.

3. When it comes to organizing your earrings, they need to be sorted and paired up and placed side by side when hung up in a jewelry armoire or jewelry box. If placing them inside a jewelry box you want one pair (two at most) in one divided section. Like any piece of jewelry, they can be damaged if you put too many pairs into one section. An Earring Tree is a great option if your jewelry box does not have earring storage.

4. Watches are best stored in a jewelry box that is specifically made for watches; called a watch box or watch jewelry box. These types of boxes help the watches keep their shape and to not become damaged.

Following these easy tips, your jewelry box will be beautifully organized and your favorite pieces ready to wear in a short amount of time.
