Jewelry box with several drawers if you own a large jewelry collection

Loving jewelry is like loving good wine: We are always tempted to expand our cellar. When it becomes too small to store our entire collection, we try to find more.

But we do not advise you to have a multitude of jewelry boxes to store your jewelry. It is better to centralize your entire collection in a large jewelry box designed for this purpose.

If you have more than 30 pieces of jewelry, we advise you to go for a jewelry box containing at least 5 drawers. Make sure that the drawers have compartments so that you can separate your gold jewelry from your silver jewelry. Separating jewelry by material is essential if you want to keep them for a long time.

Storing a large jewelry collection is not always about buying a tall jewelry box with 5 drawers and compartments. These are perfect for storing rings, earrings or even small bracelets. But you might have trouble storing your large pearl or diamond necklaces!

Fortunately for you, some big wooden jewelry boxes also have two side doors. These are equipped with different small hooks to surprise your necklaces and optimize their conservation.

However, the types of storage included in a jewelry box for women are not the only criteria to consider in its choice. It is also very important to consider its covering. Whether the box is made of leather, cardboard, glass or wood, you must pay close attention to the material on which your jewelry will rest.

If it is the same as the outside surface, ask the seller if a different treatment has been done on the inside surface. Indeed, some chemicals can alter the quality of your jewelry in the long run.

Jewelry box with lock and keys if you like to travel

While your jewelry box should match your collection, it should also fit your lifestyle. If you are a woman who likes to travel, you should choose a jewelry chest that is durable and easy to carry.

We don’t recommend buying a big size jewelry box or a nice jewelry box with beautiful designs on its exterior. These could get damaged with the friction in your suitcase.

However, there are types of jewelry boxes that are suitable for travel. The flat jewelry chest is particularly convenient to store in a suitcase. The best is to have a lock that you can close with a key or a code. This way, you don’t risk losing your little treasures if your suitcase is shaken during your travel.
