If you’ve ever found yourself digging through a jewelry drawer or overloaded ring dish in search of a match to your earring or felt the frustration of trying to untangle a mass of necklaces and make it out the door on time, you’re not alone. Jewelry storage can often become an afterthought— we toss everything into a drawer or box, losing track of what we have and costing precious time when looking for a specific piece. But, it doesn’t have to be this way! Today, I’m laying out my best tips to help you organize your jewelry like a professional. Whatever your collection looks like, there’s sure to be a solution here for you!

Assess Your Collection

The first step in organizing your jewelry will be to lay eyes on your entire collection. You’ll need to take everything out and put your pieces in a central location. Take the time to untangle necklaces and make sure all earrings are properly paired. This is also a perfect time to clean and repair any pieces that need a little TLC.

Categorize your collection by grouping like with like- earrings, rings, necklaces, bracelets, etc. You can take this one step further and separate your pieces based on occasion (everyday wear and special occasion). You may wish to store special occasion pieces separately. When your assessment is complete, it’s time to decide how and where you’ll want to store your pieces. You’ll find a few of my suggestions below!

Drawer Organization

If you’re able to dedicate a drawer, a modular drawer organizer is a great option! It can be adjusted to the size of your drawer, and will be compartmentalized to store jewelry of any size. The dividers are perfect for keeping pieces separated, and your collection will be laid out in a way that is easy to assess at a glance.

Tabletop Organization

Most of us don’t have the space to dedicate a whole drawer to our jewelry collection. This is where a tabletop organizer comes in! There are stackable options that can be customized according to the amount of storage you need, and they’re aesthetically pleasing, so you won’t have to think twice about displaying on top of a dresser in a bedroom or closet.

Tabletop racks are a perfect solution when you have pieces you want to display. They’re a wonderful option if you have a smaller jewelry collection or if you want to keep your everyday pieces easily accessible.

If you’re short on tabletop and drawer space, a hanging or over-the-door organizer can create additional space for you to store your collection.
