Five Signs It’s Time to Upgrade Your Jewelry Box

Five Signs It’s Time to Upgrade Your Jewelry Box

Your treasured jewelry collection deserves a proper home. If you’ve taken time over the years to acquire special pieces, you already know the value of storing your jewelry properly in a functional yet stylish jewelry box. If your current storage solution is a little worn, or a getting too small, it’s time to make an upgrade. Here are five signs it’s time.

You No Longer Have Room for Everything

 

 

Jewelry acquisition over time tends to add up even when you take into account natural attrition of pieces that were misplaced, broken, or donated. It may take years, but all of a sudden, you realize you have a rather large collection of jewelry and not enough storage. If your collection has outgrown its current space, it may be time to get a jewelry organizer that can accommodate 200 or so accessories. An attractive wall-mounted or over-the-door jewelry organizer is a good option because it doesn’t take up much real estate on the door or wall, but its high-capacity storage capabilities still suit your needs.

Your Current Jewelry Box Is Worn Out

Maybe the drawers and compartments on your jewelry box don’t open or close properly anymore or the felt lining that protects pieces has seen better days. Like with everything we use frequently, wear and tear happens. If it’s time to retire your current jewelry box, upgrade to one that is functional and won’t scratch the surface of your nightstand, dresser, or wherever you place it. Rubber feet on the bottom will prevent the jewelry box from sliding around and linen-padded lining inside the drawers and compartments will protect your jewelry from getting scratched.

Your Jewelry Box Is Outdated

 

 

Sentimental value is one thing, but if your current jewelry box feels dated, then it’s time to get one that reflects your taste and style today. You can’t go wrong with a jewelry box with a clean, modern design as it goes well with any décor and has a timeless feel to it. Sleek wood, whether it’s dark or more natural-looking, with subtle metal accents that blend into the overall design is classic and casual.

You Don’t Have Convenient Enough Access

  

 

Having a couple of different options for jewelry storage is a consideration, depending on the size of your collection and how you want to display it. An elegant, eye-catching jewelry tree or stand allows you easy access to your pieces and also makes an artful statement. A pretty, nature-inspired one like Umbra Orchid Jewelry Tree, would look lovely on a vanity, bathroom counter, or dresser. For the items you want to keep out of sight or don’t wear as often, you may also want a jewelry box with both secret compartments and a display top in case you do want quick, grab-and-go access to your glasses and watches.

The Compartments and Drawers Don’t Fit Your Needs

If you end up stuffing jewelry or accessories into available slots and items become buried or tangled up with other pieces, you should look at upgrading to a jewelry box with a configuration that works better for you. You want to be able to store watches, necklaces, rings, and other items organized and accessible even if they are tucked away in hidden compartments.
