Five Eye-Catching Ways To Organize Your Jewelry

While we love showing off our baubles, we definitely believe that our jewelry is worthy of a pretty display rather than a messy muddle. With that said, we have rounded up a bunch of jewelry organizing ideas that are sure to inspire you to reorganize your own collection.


Five Eye-Catching Ways To Organize Your Jewelry

Picture this: piles upon piles of gorgeous statement necklaces, oversized earrings, chunky cuff bracelets, and cocktail rings, scattered across your dresser or spilling out of trinket boxes. While we love showing off our baubles, we definitely believe that our jewelry is worthy of a pretty display rather than a messy muddle. With that said, we have rounded up a bunch of jewelry organizing ideas that are sure to inspire you to reorganize your own collection. So, click through to discover how to organize jewelry in ways that are fun, eye-catching, and practical, all at once.

Five Eye-Catching Ways To Organize Your Jewelry

1. A jewelry stand.
If you really want to show off your collection, a jewelry stand is the way to go. You can drape your favorite necklaces on the rungs, slot your earrings into the ready-made holes, and hook your bracelets over the top. Try Urban Outfitters’ Spinning Bird Jewelry Stand ($32), which comes in gold, silver, and bronze, or Pottery Barn’s Vintage Metal Necklace Stand ($39).

2. Mirrored dresser trays.
A mirrored tray is oh-so chic and one of our favorite ways to display your jewelry. This is particularly perfect if you like to “edit” your collection on a regular basis. You can place your current key pieces on display and then swap them out every time you are in the mood for something new. Try Pottery Barn’s Mirrored Dresser-Top Trays ($29 – $49), which come in a variety of sizes.

3. A jewelry box.
This organizing solution speaks to those with a more traditional manner and is once again perfect for those who prefer a curated selection of jewelry. This particular box—Anthropologie’s Rose Mallow Reflection Jewelry Box ($158)—has a sophisticated vibe and is just waiting for all your worldly treasures.

4. A dish.
If you like to try on a number of pieces before you settle, a pretty jewelry dish is definitely the way to go for you. With everything readily accessible, you can pick and choose piece by piece, trying them on as you go. We recommend picking a set of tiered dishes like Urban Outfitters’ Mixed Enamel Plates Jewelry Stand ($34) or arranging gold dishes in different shapes and sizes on your dresser. Both Wendy Nichol’s Brass Shell ($195) and Jay Strongwater’s Leaf Ring Dish ($395) are great options.

5. A wall display.
What better way to show off your baubles, right? Pick a display that suits your décor or, better yet, make one using your do-it-yourself skills! If you’re not so crafty, head to Etsy, where you can find homemade wall displays like this one: the Cottage Chic Distressed Jewelry Organizer ($37).

    Nice ideas =D

    I have a mini tree that I put all of my rings on. For earrings, I stapled window mesh to the edges of a wooden picture frame. It makes for a cute display of all of them. The necklaces I hang from push pins on a cork board or on coat hooks.

    I love these ideas! I am especially fond of the nails on wall one. I’ve actually been wondering what to do with my jewelry, it’s all in an old fashioned (except not really) jewelry box at the moment, but I always forget about pieces.

    I have been hanging them all over my walls. Quite a mess underneath that all I’m sure.

    Brilliant photos you found though.

    Love Grace.

    i’ve always wanted to display my accessories like tt too, but because my country’s (singapore) very humid, it causes some cheaper jewellery to discolour… so i still keep them in my father’s old fishing tackle boxes..

    For those who are worried about damaging the walls, maybe they could use a cork board and decorate that, and hang that on the wall. Only one or two nails.
