Baubles on Display


Cocktail rings, bangles, necklaces and earrings...oh my! So many jewels, what's a girl to do? I have a pretty large collection of jewelry (mostly costume...nothing to get too excited about ;)) and I currently have it all displayed on various stands, trays and bowls. It looks ok but I've been looking for some new organization inspiration...some ways to make it all look a little prettier.

I was thrilled to come across these little gems. A little Hermes box or LV case can do wonders, right? I think I'm going to go invest in a little orange :)


How do you all display, organize & store your jewelry?

Oh Hermes and LV are just lovely! I actually found a great jewlery tray set at Bed Bath & Beyond and then I found a matching second storage piece at Marshalls {Home Goods}! Such a steal, I will be doing a post on them soon! Jewelry is my weakness, but so is handbags, shoes, clothes etc.! LOL.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and the sweet words on my new job!

Loving those boxes. My jewels are hanging off Ikea trees and tucked away in the wardrobe tray.

I saw this cute Grandma the other day that must have had like three rings on each finger. I commented how pretty they were and she said she's spent her whole life waiting to wear them for best. She said - don't make that mistake - make everyday your best day.

Words to wear bling by!

I can't wait to get my Hermes box! I use a lovely wood jewelry chest with anti tarnish velvet.

oh the hermes jewelry box is incredible and I also love the LV of course. the last image is a simple Hermes box which isn't a bad idea and a lot cheaper :)
I clean candle pots and stack most of my jewelry in them this way I always remember what I have

well i store my jewelry alright...but not nearly as chic-ly as this! kind of makes me want to trot down to hermes and invest :)

First of all, I love the pictures you posted. I don't really get to display my accessories. They are usually kept in my luggage since I'm always all over.

Love the last two boxes. Right now I have a wooden jewelery box that my uncle made and various other drawers that my jewelery is stuffed in. I wish it was more organized and displayed as prettily as these photos.

I prefer LV :)

Right now, sadly, all my jewelry is just thrown together. I really need to get some organization BAD!

I love the Louis Vuitton :) So much beautiful jewelry; Wow!!!!

You have such a beautiful blog :) x

Oh these are so lovely... the orange is fabulous!
I'm embarrassed to say that I keep my jewelry in a cute vintage clutch. Probably not the most practical solution, as the jewelry is constantly getting tangled!
Hope you're having a lovely week!

Well, my post http://sentimentalistlisa.blogspot.com/2010/03/reader-feedback-wanted-accessories.html shows how I kind of store most of my accessories, but I can't say it is exactly what I am satisfied with. I have a tree like candle holder that I hand things on.

I love the Louis Vuitto as well. I think you have a fun collection of stuff. I seriously need to accessorize more!

Poli said...

Tnx for commenting on my blog! I always glad to see you in my blog!!)))

These are all absolutely gorgeous ways, not to mention practical, to store jewelry. I think you should definitely invest in some orange ;)

As for me, i gotta say my stuff is pretty all over the place! I don't wear much jewelry but i have a lot of it! Things i inherited over the years, especially from my mom... Inevitably though i always wear the same thing. So those items are just in a Birks box and the rest is kind of scattered: i have a jewelry-storing sort of mini chest, most of my necklaces hang on my dad's old tie hanger and my pendant earrings are hung on a converted spice rack! lol

Alright, sorry for the novel :) Have a lovely day!

if only i could organize and store my jewelry so beautifully! i have a main box, various bowls for little things, and hang some necklaces on my towel rod, but at the end of the week it all ends up in a pile on my counter.
