No offense to the jewelry box, but we believe that some accessories deserve to be on display. And even if you own a jewelry box or two, necklaces have a tendency to become entangled and earrings can get separated easily. The obvious solution is to come up with a jewelry display that doubles as decor.
The benefits of keeping your jewelry out where you can see it go beyond the aesthetic. Picking out your accessories is much easier when they’re all right in front of you and you can see what your options are. You won’t forget you have something or lose a piece because it’s been buried.
Stop haphazardly tossing your jewelry into a drawer. Save the jewelry box for your valuables and learn how to expertly display your accessories. Here are some wonderful ideas to get you started:
If you want to keep it simple, just hang a bunch of hooks on your wall. You can hang them in a pattern on a bare wall, in a row over your dresser, or fill any empty space that needs a little something. Hang your necklaces, bracelets and scarves on the hooks as well as chunkier pieces like a multi gem bracelet for women.
Another great idea for a hook display: color code your jewelry pieces. It will be visually appealing and interesting to look at.
Clean out your closets or go to your nearest craft store and get some empty frames. Spray paint the frames a matching color, then drill holes on the backside of the frame where the glass would sit. Fill the holes with dowels. Or, you can add hooks to the top of the frames and hang necklaces from them.
If you want your display to look unique, hang clipboards on the wall and use them to show off your statement necklaces.
Wrap a few coat hangers in pretty fabric. Hang the coat hangers on your wall and clip your necklaces to them with clothespins.
If you need help keeping track of all of your unique gold rings for women, use vintage saucers or small antique plates and keep them on your bedside table.
If you have a vintage inspired bedroom or bathroom or bedroom, take advantage of the repurposing trend. Find some old dresser knobs or door knobs and drill them into your wall. Use them to display your statement necklaces.
Drape your earrings over a teacup and use the cup to enhance your other jewelry displays or set it on top of your jewelry box.
Another use for teacups: place them side by side in your top dresser or nightstand drawer and organize your jewelry that way if you don’t want it fully on display.
Need to prep your pieces for the week? Perhaps you’re one of those organized people that picks out her outfits ahead of time, or maybe you pack to travel frequently. You can display your chosen jewelry on a mirrored tray on your dresser and keep the rest put away.
Keep bangles in apothecary jars, glass vases or mason jars on your shelves.
For your statement pieces, fasten a few hooks to a shadow box and hang several of the displays on a wall.
An old window with chicken wire instead of glass makes for a beautiful vintage display.
An unused corkboard can become a way to showcase your jewelry. Paint the frame if need be, then hammer some tiny nails into the cork. Hang your necklaces and bracelets in an eye-catching way and hang the corkboard above your vanity or dresser.
We’ve barely scratched the surface on all the ways you can display your jewelry. Not only will having a jewelry display be more convenient for you, it will give you some creative freedom to style it and show it off.
