How do you currently store your jewelry? In a drawer? In a jewelry box? In several? The problem is- when you don't have an organized way to store your jewelry- you tend to wear the same pieces over and over because you forget what you own! And whether your collection is mainly costume jewelry or made up of the “real deal”- your jewelry was an investment. So you want to take great care of it- and use it! Here's how to get organized with the best jewelry organizers!

What Type of Jewelry Organizer Do You Need?
There's really just a few things you need to take into account when selecting the right jewelry organizing system:
How large is your jewelry collection?
Before investing in anything- it helps to take an inventory of what you have. So clear some space on the dining room table or the top of your bed, and start bringing out all of the jewelry pieces from all of your current storage spots.
As you go through your items, sort them by category- necklaces, bracelets, bangles, earrings (post and dangling), rings, and watches, and count up the number of pieces that you own of each category. This is an excellent opportunity to do a little curating of your collection as well- removing items that you no longer love or wear. Set those aside to donate to a family member or friend.
This process will give you a starting point to make sure that you purchase something large enough to hold your entire collection. And be sure to scale up just a bit so you have room to purchase a few new pieces in time as well!
Where would you like to store your jewelry?
Do you have room to hang an armoire on the wall? Would you prefer to hang an organizer on the back of a door or in a closet? Or store your jewelry on a nightstand, dresser or vanity top?
Would you also like a place to hold jewelry pieces that you wear every day- such as on a tray next to the bed?
How would you like to store your jewelry pieces when you travel?
The answers to all of these questions should shape your purchasing decision!
What Features Should You Look for in a Jewelry Organizer?
Beyond just making sure that your jewelry organizing system has enough space for you to store what you need, you also want to make sure that it allows for the following:
- The ability to protect your pieces (velvet or suede lining, hooks to separate pieces, pouches to hold the bottoms of long necklaces)
- A way to keep chains from becoming tangled together (make sure that is a long enough bar or enough hooks so that you have room to separate your chains)
- A lid or door to keep your jewelry away from dust, long periods of sunlight (which can fade colors), and moisture (which will increase tarnishing)
- If you want to keep those little people in your home out of your jewelry box- you'll want to buy one that locks!
Best Jewelry Box:
For smaller-sized collections or to separate a larger collection into wearable categories (daytime jewelry, costume jewelry, glam jewelry, etc.) a tabletop jewelry box is a great solution. Be sure to compare the size of the jewelry box to the size of the space where you would like to house it- to make sure that it fits!
Top Pick for Jewelry Box: Glenor Jewelry Box You will love this soft leather-like feel of the outside of this jewelry box, with its beautiful contrast stitching, and the compartments are lined in an elegant velvet. With a removable top tray over the multi-compartment bottom tray- it offers a surprising amount of storage in exchange for taking up such a small footprint on your dresser!

If you are tight on space, a hanging jewelry organizer that can hang on the back of a door, or inside of a closet might be the perfect solution for you. Just be sure that you can easily access your collection (if you are storing it in your closet) and that you carefully open and close any doors holding a hanging organizer- so the necklaces don't become tangled!
