Whether they’re outrageous, inexpensive baubles or the precious, sparkling kind from Tiffany’s or Cartier, you must always have a place to put your jewelry. You wouldn’t want to lose another earring or drop another bracelet into oblivion, do you?
To give you some ideas for how to store jewelry, here are 20 jewelry storage items that are as gorgeous as your own accessories.
From country-style perches to glass sculptures, jewelry collectors and average owners alike will love how these storage items are ornamental by themselves.

10. Trend a Hand Jewelry Stand, $15.99
This blue glass hand is probably our favorite because it’s good enough on its own, and it makes us want to buy more rings just to see how it would look with all those jewelry piled on like that.
One of the biggest dilemmas of jewelry addicts is how to store all their beloved baubles properly. Collecting all the beautiful jewelry pieces is very enjoyable, but keeping them organized and tangle-free can be challenging.
It may be time to do a little sprucing up to ensure that your jewelry and accessory collection is protected and always organized.
11. Vintage Boxes
Many jewelry boxes are available in the market, but vintage-styled boxes are among the most popular. These beauties have a certain classic vibe that will never be out of style, regardless of the season.

12. Wall Hooks
A decorative wall hook is a great option if you prefer to keep your jewelry in sight for peace of mind. Unlike jewelry boxes, they proudly display your accessories for everyone to see.
Aside from beating the morning rush because you can easily see everything, wall hooks add a nice touch of chic decor to any room.

13. Jewelry Dish
A jewelry dish or plate is another great option to display your favorite jewelry pieces. While this is far from a standard jewelry box, it is one of the chicest ways to showcase your bling.
However, it doesn’t have the same storage space as a typical jewelry box. Only a few select pieces can be placed on the plate so as not to look too cluttered.

14. Acrylic Organizers
If you want a clean and modern look, then go for acrylic organizers. These storage units will also show off your jewelry and keep them tangle-free.
The best types of acrylic organizers are made of durable clear acrylic that should last you a long time.

15. Faux Antlers
Chic faux antlers made of porcelain or stone are effective organizers that double as decorative pieces you can put anywhere in the house. Aside from antler designs, these things come in other forms, with arms or branches that can hold your trinkets.
