Jewellery boxes come in various shapes, size and designs but your decision should be based on how you want to use it. For example, you may have your jewellery split into everyday and occasional jewellery in which case we will suggest having 2 separate jewellery boxes: a normal box and a smaller valet box or valet tray for your everyday jewellery.
A valet box or valet tray is sized to contain your everyday jewellery and can be kept on your dressing table without taking up too much room. It should provide efficient organisation of your jewellery and allow easy access to its content.
For your occasional jewellery, we will suggest having a good sized jewellery box which can both organise your jewellery efficiently and provide easy access to them. Having easy access to the jewellery stored in your occasional jewellery box is very important because the jewellery you keep out of your sight usually get forgotten. Therefore having a quick view of the content of your occasional jewellery box should be as simple as opening the box and pulling out the drawers.
If you are a jet setter and you love taking your jewellery away with you on holiday, it is important to invest in a decent sized travel jewellery box which allows you take all of your favourite pieces with you. A travel jewellery box should be designed to restrict movement of its contents during your journey. Safety and security is also quite important but not essential as it is far more important to keep your jewellery safe than rely on security provided by just your jewellery box lock alone.
Jewellery boxes come in different materials and the costs vary widely depending on the material used and the brand. There are real leather types, man-made leather types, wooden variety, furniture style jewellery cabinets or armoires and fabric covered jewellery boxes. While one may feel tempted to buy a jewellery box based on price, it important to remember the purpose of a jewellery box is not just to store your jewellery but to organise. It is therefore not enough to buy based on looks or price but on function. Beyond the look and price, your choice must deliver efficient organisation of your jewellery effortlessly.
