A Too Small Jewelry Box

My daughter-in-law designed a jewelry box for the Ice Princess and had it made up. My son raved about it. I’ll try to show a photo without her name. It’s very pretty, but in my opinion, way too small, personally speaking. I have a few beautiful jewelry boxes from my grandma and husband, but they are too small or not large enough. A strand of pearls fills just one! My dressers also have three velvet lined drawers and trays. Hubs had to build me a jewelry closet. I have areas for chains and pendants, earrings, rings, bracelets, pearls, watches, etc. Where do you keep your jewelry? I know a few people here aren’t into jewelry, but this question is for those who are.

I'm crazy about rings, pierced earrings, and bracelets. Necklaces, no I don't wear them. I use to wear a watch at work, for timing a resident's breathing. My jewelry box is small, with two drawers. I like everything 'small.'

@DianneN The top looks like a drawer, but it's stationary with small compartment and a lid. Two are actual drawers.

I have an armoire that I bought. Actually son paid for half of it, and I used gift certificates for the other half. I don't wear tons of jewelry, but I have the armoire pretty full actually.

I know those armoires. They are so pretty. I’m sure it’s full already. We looked at them but realized a closet was necessary. And just wait until I give my granddaughter most of my jewelry. lol

I have an old multi-purpose box, where I kept what few jewerly items I have left. I lost some when I moved from my hometown, to my current city years ago. All for the best I suppose. I'm not a social person in general, so who would I weear it for, anyway? My husband?

Sorry you lost some jewelry. I lost a pearl earring Friday somehow and it’s killing me. My husband is the one who keeps plying me with jewelry. I love it and he likes me wearing it and not saving it like I used to.

@DianneN You just need to give her something to keep everything in also They did and I do have it full. Mostly stuff they bought me. Including a necklace with a big M on it. Nate, the youngest got that for me the first time hubby took him Christmas shopping for me. When asked he said the M stands for mom. Hubby lost that one

My jewelry is located in the vicinity of my oak dresser. Good enough? (Yes I have names for my furniture. oak dresser, Nichols cabinet, Swivel mirror dresser, you get the idea. Mine is not worth that much if you have ideas of vandalizing.

I have a free standing jewelry box with a full length mirror on the front and also a fairly large on on my nightstand. I used to wear a lot more jewelry when I was working. That is a very pretty jewelry box but I can see where it might be too small.

@DianneN if I had kept adding to my jewelry I certainly would need more room but I haven't gotten anything new recently except earrings and they don't take up much room. I love earrings and rings

I had quite a lot of jewelry and had kept them in their respective boxes in a cupboard but presently I don't have any as they all got stolen by robbers(by breaking the iron cupboard)when we were away from home for a week. I presently have almost nothing.

@DianneN we were different we did not exchange rings. I do have some jewelry he gave me but it was from business trips he took and bought on planes but at least they are memories. He bought me one hand-made ring with a large heart and unfortunately that one got lost in translation, I have no idea where that wound up but I do have a photo of it.
