This Is How to Store Jewelry the Smart Way

Welcome back to our organizational series, where on the last day of each month, we’ll roll out a new closet-related topic with expert-approved tips and advice. With us this month is Melanie Charlton from Clos-ette, who will be sharing her organizational insight.

There's nothing worse than realizing your favorite necklace is in a tangled mess, especially when you don't have time to sit down and figure out how to unknot it. Storing jewelry seems to be a universal issue. You build your collection one piece at a time, and before you know it, you have too many little accessories to keep track of. Whether it's an earring obsession, a love for watches, or an overflowing collection of layered necklaces, there is a way to store it all that can keep you organized and your jewelry maintained beautifully.

Keep reading for the must-have items you need to keep your jewelry in perfect order.

The first item I highly recommend is a jewelry velvet stand or suede-lined drawer inserts. These are a lifesaver! They prevent jewelry from getting tangled, plus they take up a minimal amount of room. They also provide you with a great way to see your entire collection of jewelry at a glance.

This is one of the items I recommend the most: a peg wall. Use it to store chunkier costume jewelry, along with necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. Peg walls are also great for storing other accessories like scarves, bags, and even sunglasses.

No jewelry collection is complete without the perfect watch. Use watch-pillow inserts in drawers or a watch winder to keep watches on display!
