Having a beautiful collection of jewellery is a sense of joy and pride for every woman. Whether it is your engagement ring or exquisite pearl jewellery that your son bought for you with his first paycheck, if you want to maintain the lustre and shine of your ornaments, you need to store them properly. Jewellery that is stored in a haphazard manner can get damaged or even inadvertently lost. Read on for creative yet practical ways to organise your jewellery.
Stack them up
You can avoid breakage, underuse and loss of your jewellery by stacking them up. Try different ways of stacking them. For your earrings, you can purchase a simple earring holder and hang them through the hooks. If you are a person who likes creating and experimenting, DIY an earring caddy with some chicken wire. You can use an old frame that’s been lying around and store your favourite dangly earrings in them.
For your bracelets and bangles, you can use decorative vases. A neat display of these vases will certainly add an artistic feel to your room and also be easily accessible. Another eco-friendly way would be to upcycle those glass bottles lying unused in your kitchen. Use them to stack your bangles and bracelets. A quirky glass design on the bottles will give it an aesthetic look.
Go old-school with a jewellery box
You can’t go wrong with this good old method of storage. Invest in a good jewellery box that is sturdy and has transparent covers in order to identify your baubles easily. Look for a box that has several different compartments in them so that your jewellery doesn’t get tangled. You can also buy separate boxes and categorise your jewellery according to the occasion. Your flashy dangling earrings can fall into the party-wear category, studs and minimalist jewellery into work-wear and heavy, chunky accessories into ethnic-wear.
Pin it on the wall
Tap the unused potential of walls by hanging your necklaces individually and prevent cluttering. You can buy a ready-made wall hanger or strategically place some pushpins on your dressing area wall to accommodate those quirky, colourful necklaces. You can also customise your own jewellery cabinet with paint, patterned fabric and some hooks. It can hold your necklaces, earrings and the piling up bracelets. However, it’s not the best idea to put your valuable jewellery that’s articulated with precious stones and metal out on display. It can tarnish the piece of jewellery and increase the risk of it getting lost.
Protect your precious beauties
Whether your jewellery is valuable in monetary or sentimental terms, it’s still important to keep your finest jewellery and gems reserved for special occasions, safe and organised. From elegant emerald earrings to that regal ruby necklace, make sure your exquisite ornaments are stored separately in order to avoid any laceration. If you have a vanity or a dresser, you can use little jewellery boxes or drawstring jewellery bags to store these earrings. Store them in a cool and dry place so that they are not exposed to any chance of oxidation.
The simplest yet effective way of organising your jewellery is storing them in clear pouches. You can find a vast array of ready-made hanging jewellery organisers equipped with small individual pockets. These are ideal for your fashionable rings, earrings and bracelets. They give you clear visibility and can be accessed comfortably. You can mount them over your dressing table for easy use.
Prioritise you daily-wear
To make every day hassle-free, you can place your daily-wear in a shallow bowl or a fancy tray on you bedside tabletop. This will give you easy access to it without having to fumble in the morning to find your favourite ring.
Consider how you look for your jewellery and according to that, you can organise your collection. You can categorise them according to the colour range or divide them into casual and formal wear. It entirely depends on your preferences. Stacking similar jewellery together will make your life easy to a great extent. You can stow away your small rings in one compartment and all your studs in another. This way you can easily locate your jewellery.
Store it in a drawer
Drawers are not just for dresses and delicates, you can use them to store your dainty and precious jewellery as well. Layer the drawers with velvet fabric or any other soft material to prevent any laceration. This will not only give you a sophisticated look but also help you to pick out your jewellery in an easy flash due to the contrast. Say goodbye to mismatched earrings, tangled necklaces and missing bangles!
Take the twig-sted approach
To avoid clutter, it’s best to hang your necklaces separately. A simple and a quirky way to display them would be to nail a medium-sized twig to the wall and hang your necklaces there. You can spray paint it in any colour of your choice to add an element of vibrancy to your room.
