Jewellery can be the most time-honored and precious gift that you can present to a loved one. These are valuable pieces – whether they're pearls from your mother or fake jewels bought for a Halloween costume. I grew up watching my mom open a jewelry box full of pieces that ranged from inexpensive costume jewelry to the expensive stuff, and she held onto it because of what it meant to her. Because of that moment in my life, I cherish all kinds of jewelry given to me, but what I remember the most is how important it is to tuck it away for safekeeping, which is why jewelry organizers are worth the investment.

You don't want to llose those precious pieces. Earrings and rings are especially notorious for getting lost, wherever you seem to place them. And longer pieces of jewelry like necklaces have a habit of getting tangled and damaged if they aren't stored properly. Having a jewelry box allows you to keep it all in one convenient, safe place.

Buying a jewelry box isn't too difficult, but you want to make sure you find the right one, with so many choices, colors, styles and features. That's where this list comes in. I spent time researching and examining which is the best jewelry box for a number of needs, and I came up with five that'll certainly help you protect, store and preserve your jewelry for years to come.


This jewelry box from Vlando has eight hanging wings that are attached to a swing-out cabinet for necklaces as well as two storage bags for dangling jewelry pieces. The jewelry box also includes drawers for holding bracelets and ring grooves for holding all of your favorite pieces. At the very top of the jewelry box, there are slots that can be used to store any other accessories. This jewelry box is a good choice for people who have somewhat large collections because it offers the ability to properly store various items.


If you need storage for a large collection that's durable and looks good, then the Kendal leather jewelry is an ideal choice to keep everything secure. Inside this PU leather box is a large glass mirror and hand-lined suede fabric. There are five removable drawers of various sizes, including deep and multi-sectioned compartments. If you want swinging cabinets, you'll get them on each side with eight handing wings and pockets. It fastens with snaps and a clasp; and when you want to take it with you, the handle is right on top.


Not everyone has space to put a jewelry box on top of a vanity desk. This is where a hanging jewelry organizer comes in. This hanging organizer can be hung right on your door and it features a cabinet with six LED lights to admire your collection. This organizer can hold 90 earring slots, 48 stud earring holes, one bracelet rod, 32 necklace hooks and more. You can get this cabinet in five colors: white, brown, gray, rustic blue and rustic brown. And it's ideal for anyone with a substantial collection. 


While hanging jewelry cabinets are certainly convenient, sometimes the larger versions are a bit much. This one can do everything any other cabinet can do -- just smaller. The front part of the cabinet has a huge mirror and on the inside there are two large storage compartments, 60 ring holes and more. Even though this jewelry organizer can't hang freely without being installed, with two anchoring screws, you'll have it up in no time to keep all your jewelry organized and safe.


Sometimes young girls want to join in on protecting their jewelry too. This Vlando jewelry box comes in four colors: blue, pink, purple and green. On the inside of this box is a small mirror with a ring holder, smaller compartment for necklaces and four individual sections for other pieces. The bottom half has two drawers and can be carried everywhere easily. 

Other jewelry boxes I liked

Songmics 360° Swivel Jewelry Cabinet: This 360 swivel jewelry cabinet is not only great for large collections, but also for people who want the convenience of movement. You can get this space-saving, 10-compartment cabinet in three different colors: brown, rustic brown and white. 

JS Nova Juns Watch Box: Jewelry boxes aren't just for women. There are options for men too. This watch box can hold several watches, a pair of sunglasses, cufflinks and rings all protected with velvet pillows.

How I chose the best jewelry boxes

Considering that there are a range of things people look for in a jewelry box, I spent time researching four categories: price, material, style and size. The prices of all these jewelry boxes range from affordable to luxury and everything in between to ensure people with any budget can get one. Material matters for jewelry boxes because some people want security, especially if the pieces you have are very expensive. And style is a major factor because no one should have to sacrifice style over functionality. Finally, size is key to ensure that what you have has its own space, but still has enough room for additional items you may get over time. With these four categories in mind, I compiled a well-rounded list that will work for as many people as possible.

Jewelry Box FAQs

What do you put in a jewelry box?

You can pretty much put any kind of jewelry in a jewelry box. But depending on the one you purchase, you will find dedicated spaces inside for certain items including hoop earrings, bracelets and more. You can also put important documents in your jewelry box, but using it just for jewelry is just fine.

Should I keep my jewelry in a jewelry box?

If you have a sizable amount of jewelry and you don't use a jewelry box, then yes, you most definitely should use one. Storing your jewelry in safe storage will keep it protected not only from harmful liquids, but also from other elements that might warp or damage your jewelry. 

How do you organize your jewelry?

While there are many ways you can organize your jewelry, one of the easiest ways is to keep the original box or bag your jewelry came in and store that inside the box. If you don't want to do that, you'll need to be careful how you organize everything so you can ensure pieces don't get tangled.
