Jewelry Storage Tips

If you own a lot of monogram jewelry, chances are good that you spend far too much time untangling necklaces, digging through bangles, and trying on different rings of varying sizes as your body changed. This can take some of the fun out of wearing jewelry. In order to avoid this, you are going to need to get organized. Here are some tips for organizing your jewelry.

1. Make Wall Art Out of Your Jewelry

If you have tons of jewelry, you might feel like you don't get nearly enough opportunities in your life to properly display your entire collection. By turning your jewelry into wall art, you are able to display your entire collection while still getting organized. Choose a blank wall in your home. Then, go to a hardware store and purchase a number of stick-on wall hooks. Make sure that they are wall hooks that you can easily remove in order to make sure that you don't damage the walls should you move, especially if you are living in an apartment.

Artfully place the hooks on your wall so that they are far enough apart in order to avoid having the necklaces overlap. Try to keep the hooks relatively evenly spaced in order to ensure that you don't have an uneven density of hooks on your walls.

Regardless of your decision, you will have perfectly separated necklaces decorating a wall of your home. If you don't have a ton of space, consider doing this to the back of a door.

2. Use a Box Separator

Go to the store and purchase a jewelry separator that you can place in a drawer. Even if you don't have a drawer in which you can place the separator, you can still put it in a short box and store it underneath your bed. This will essentially turn your drawer or a box into a series of smaller compartments. Place pairs of earrings into each of these compartments in order to keep them neatly separated and to more easily keep track of the smaller studs that you might have.

3. Keep Bangles in Bags

Finally, if you find that you have a lot of different purses that you never use, separate out your colored bangles by color. Place all of the blue and green ones in one bag, all of the warmer toned colors in another bag, etc. This will allow you to reach into a bag and pull out a few different bangles that will all be colors guaranteed to go with one another.
