Jewelry Organization 101

by Jennifer Jones January 21, 2013

Hi there! Jen from IHeart Organizing here today to share with you how I organize and store my jewelry, and provide some additional examples of other awesome jewelry storage ideas as well.


What girl doesn't love a little bling? It is the icing on the outfit and is how we finish off our style. However, if we don't have a little control over how we store our jewels, they can become damaged, ruined or lost.


The first thing I do that is super simple and works like a charm, is place an itty bitty dish on my nightstand. That way, when I go to bed at night, my wedding bands have a special home while I sleep, and are easy to find again the following morning.




For all of my other jewelry, I am a "have to see it to use it" kind of gal. So, I created a simple jewelry display above my dresser. The display allows me to see quickly, at a glance, what I have and what will work with the day's specific outfit.




To create the jewelry storage, I used a few simple frames and inserted special backings to display the jewelry.


For the necklaces, I used cork covered with fabric, which allows me to use push pins to hold the jewels.




By using pushpins, I can select the location and height of each piece, it's a very simple and versatile setup.




And for my earrings, I found this super fantastic sheet of cutout aluminum {from Home Depot}, which I cut down to size and popped into the frame.




I use this for my dangly earrings, and I love that I can always see what I have and make a quick choice in the morning when I am getting ready.




For the smaller bits such as stud earrings, extra backs and broaches, I use a ceramic egg tray.




And although I am not a big ring wearer, I do have a couple and found this charming white ceramic hand silhouette to be the perfect solution!



And last but not least, another dish, this one larger, is a great solution for extra bracelets and watches.




I scoured the web for some additional jewelry organization ideas and it seems that many others are fans of displaying their pretties as well.

There are many great tools on the market to help you get your jewelry in order, from jewelry trees to earing holders to the classic jewelry box. Or, you can get a little creative and repurpose everyday items such as ice cube trays, decorative dishes and muffin tins. And if a good DIY is what you love, updating picture frames and cutlery trays to display your goodies is a simple and effective option. The main thing to remember is to pair things down, only keep what you love and then keep it all divided. Jewelry can easily become mismatched, lost or tangled, so dividers are a necessity and giving every piece a home is the key.


Happy Organizing!
