Wearing jewelry is a great way to enhance the outfits you select and having a good assortment of jewelry is a necessity if you plan on wearing it with every outfit you own. The problem is storing the items in a way that allows you to easily find what you are looking for, and this especially applies to the necklaces you own. Here are some tips to help you with this problem.
Buy a jewelry box
A jewelry box offers a great way to store all types of jewelry. You can purchase small jewelry boxes to place on your dresser and large boxes that are considered furniture. Jewelry boxes are ideal for storing the jewelry items you wear each day, including your wedding ring. If you take your ring off each night before bed, placing it in a small box on your dresser is a great way to keep the ring safe while you sleep.
A large jewelry box is often called an armoire. This is a standing device that usually has drawers, and it may have opening cabinets on both sides. The drawers are great for storing rings, bracelets, and earrings, while the side cabinets are usually designed for necklaces.
The only downside to the side cabinets is that they usually do not have a lot of hooks in them. This means that you may not be able to fit all your necklaces in them. If you have to squeeze all your necklaces on the limited number of hooks available, you may have trouble finding the items you want.
Build a necklace rack
To solve this problem, you could easily build a necklace rack to use for the rest of your necklaces. The first thing you will need to make this is a piece of wood (base trim works well). The wood should be around three to four inches tall and as long as you would like the necklace rack to be. A piece of wood that is around 2-feet long is a good size if you want to hang around 20 to 40 necklaces on it.
The second thing you will need is a package of small hooks. You can buy picture hooks, decorative hooks, or any type of hooks you can find. You can then attach the hooks to the piece of wood by nailing them in place or screwing them in.
You can place the hooks as close together as you would like, and each of these hooks will offer a place to hang one or two necklaces. Once you are finished with your project, you can screw it or nail it to the wall in your room. This will give you additional space to hang the necklaces that do not fit inside your jewelry box.
If you are interested in looking at what options are available for jewelry boxes for women or men, searching online can be useful because there are styles and sizes to fit everyone's tastes.
