Jewellery Storage Ideas & Solutions

Author: Charlotte O'Shea

Up until recently I used to throw all of my trinkets in a silver pineapple shaped dish. Cute, but entirely impractical. All of my delicate necklaces would get jumbled up in a shiny bundle along with my bangles and statement rings….it got to the point where I wasn’t wearing any jewellery at all as I knew it would take me at least an hour to detangle a pair of earrings.

I had a light bulb moment when I discovered the chunky wooden hanger pictures in the slider whilst looking for knitwear on H&M – it’s excellent for displaying longer pieces. Sadly as we’ve just sold the house (again!) I didn’t want to put any more holes in the wall so it’ll have to wait until we find our forever abode and I can create that dream dressing room I’ve always been after *sigh*….Anyway, I digress.

My current solution is this rather lush copper stand by Oliver Bonas. It works with my colour scheme (erm, copper and erm…copper) and is compact enough not to take up too much room on my rather limited “beauty station” shelf.

I’m also very fond of this double trinket dish, perfect for chunkier items and separating your bargain bracelets from your more investment baubles. As you probably already know I am a huge fan of the lacquer dressing table trays from The White Company, they don’t exactly work for multiple magpie finds but they look lovely with a few bits and pieces displayed for minimalist chic.

In terms of your more traditional jewellery “box” I’m currently coveting this beautiful boutique design from John Lewis , it comes in gold, silver and my favourite copper finish. At £50 it’s a tad on the pricey side but there’s no denying it looks super luxe.

How do you store your accessories and treasures? DIY solutions are more than welcome, I’m naff at craft but there’s no denying Pinterest is awash with numerous do-it-yourself ideas and inspiration.

    1. Oh no! Which one Emma? The stand had lots of different colours and sizes available when I checked the other day x

  1. I had struggled with jewellery storage for ages, until I came across this hanger for the bargain price of £3.99 in Home Bargains (even £14.99 on Amazon I think is a worthwhile investment!) which takes so much jewellery, takes up next to no space and I can store neatly away in my wardrobe. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Umbra-Jewellery-Storage-Organiser-Black/dp/B005OQFLM2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1456215231&sr=8-1&keywords=dress+jewellery+hanger
    Then I have this for my bedside table to keep all my ‘daily’ jewellery and watch on whilst I sleep. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bright-Side-Female-Eyelashes-Earring/dp/B00IN1YFOA/ref=sr_1_3?srs=1649275031&ie=UTF8&qid=1456215495&sr=8-3&keywords=tray

  2. I have a couple of solutions (and also a lot of jewellery, especially since I got my ears pierced for the first time last year and now have six holes…):

    Muji are awesome for storage. I have:
    http://www.muji.eu/pages/online.asp?Sec=9&Sub=39&PID=2435 – with dividers
    http://www.muji.eu/pages/online.asp?Sec=9&Sub=39&PID=6002 – doesn’t hold massive earrings but good for short drop earrings

    As well as a necklace stand my Dad made for me and a vintage repainted dressing table, which has a drawer long the front of it that I’ve lined with the foam that comes in jewellery boxes and filled that with necklaces, brooches and earrings.

    1. ooh, love the earring stand, I’ve not seen that one in Muji before. And your Dad made you a necklace stand? how lovely. And the foam idea sounds genius! When we move I may look into having a whole draw full of jewellery….. 🙂 x

  3. I’m a little bit in love with http://www.prettyclearthings.com for jewellery and make-up storage (check out their IG account). I also like keeping the little gift bags you get nice jewellery in (thinking a particular shade of turquoise) and popping the individual boxes for smarter jewellery in them.

    1. These are fab Nicky, similar to the Muji but appear to have much better sizing/depth…I may have to investigate for make-up storage as quite a few of my chunkier items don’t fit in my current perspex draw stack.

  4. I used to have a mug stand (sounds awful, but was silver and clear acrylic) that had loads of prongs on and worked well to hang jewellery from. But I found I had too many pieces and it looked a bit messy and sometimes got dusty. My friend brought me a beautiful dark wooden chest back from Zanzibar with lots of little compartments and layers in, which is perfect for all my jewellery. Keeps it all dust-free and makes my beauty zone much neater! I also saw a picture frame with nails/hooks in to hang necklaces off on an RMS home tour once which is another really nice idea to display necklaces.

  5. I was just sitting in a meeting thinking about popping into Oliver Bonas this weekend to buy both of those items! Then I check the blog and look at that! I’m making a space in my wardrobe so I can close the door and avoid my cat knocking everything off! I’ve also been pairing down my jewellery collection to only include the things I love so that can be displayed with pride!

    1. I’ve done the same Beci, I couldn’t believe how much junk I’d hoarded over the years! I now only have wear often/fancy pieces left x

    1. Hi Sarah, it was from Debenhams – only £12 but a while ago now I’m afraid so sorry!. Oliver Bonas have an excellent pineapple storage jar though, I really want it xx

      1. Thanks, typical it was down to £3.60 in the sale but out of stock!!!! Love the Oliver Bonas tropical stuff, want it all!! Xx

  6. I have a small set of drawers that I found at a craft fair with drawers in it that I use for a jewellery box – I feel in love with it as soon as I saw it – and luckily it fits perfectly on my dressing table. I use tiny plastic bags (the type that screws come in for flat pack furniture) to keep single items of jewellery to stop them tangling or pairs of earrings getting separated.

    I love the hooks for hanging necklaces and showing off pretty things. I might steal this idea in the future.

  7. Love the copper stand so much! My hubby works as an engineer fixing catering equipment and ends up with scrap pieces in his van, last year he was working on a particularly expensive coffee machine and had a brainwave that the metal filter tray would make a great industrial looking jewellery stand! So he bought the old one home, we gave it a scrub, leant it against the wall on the dresser and its perfect now for hanging earrings and bracelets on! Love me a bit of authentic industrial! :p xx
