So today is is all about ways to effectively organize your jewelry. If you are anything like me, you have a lot of accessories because you need something for every occasion! So when it comes to my jewelry, I want to keep them easily accessible and easy to grab as I am running out the door. My whole philosophy about organizing is that it should be an easy system to maintain, so I hope that these 4 tips for organizing jewelry help you stay organized!
1. Jewelry Box
Invest in a fantastic jewelry box. Not only does a jewelry box help keep you organized, but it helped protect your glorious jewelry. I always thought that jewelry boxes were for old ladies, so I would create all sorts of other ways to store my jewelry. Every time I would try a new way of organizing my necklaces, they would either end up tangled up with each other, or I would lose one due to it being “misplaced”. Most jewelry boxes come with all sorts of ways to organize your jewels. My suggestion is to find a box that will work with all of the jewels you own. I knew I have a lot of earrings, so I need a box that had lots of space for earrings. This way, I know I will keep things organized because everything has its own place, instead of trying to cram everything into one small space.
I keep my jewelry all color-coded. I have a specific space for necklaces. I keep them sorted based on color so I know what I have and can find something to pair with an outfit quickly. By keeping things color-coded, I am also able to see what colors or styles I might need to invest in. For example, when I am shopping and find an adorable necklace, I can visualize my jewelry box and picture if I have something similar. If I can’t visualize it, then I know I probably don’t have it! I also color-code my earrings and bracelets. It helps me keep my jewelry organized so I can find things quickly and easily!
My jewelry box has three different drawers. I have the top drawer for my necklaces, my middle drawer for my bracelets and earrings, and the bottom drawer is for large bracelets, large earrings and traveling boxes. By keeping all of my jewelry categorized, I know where I can find whatever accessory it is I am looking for. This makes for getting ready in the morning a much smoother time!
The biggest mistake people make when it comes to jewelry is holding onto pieces that are out of style, broken or have missing pieces. Go through all of your jewelry frequently to see if you are missing an earring or have a broken clasp on a necklace. If you don’t want to pay to get it repaired, then you need to purge it. Stop letting it take up precious space among the gorgeous jewelry that you wear!
So there you have it! Invest in a fantastic jewelry box, keep your jewelry color-coded and categorized, and purge jewelry frequently, will help keep all of your jewelry organized!
