Untangle Jewelry

Longer jewels can sometimes get a bit tangled when not stored correctly. Go ahead and take the time to untangle each piece carefully. Doing this now, will help you sort them easily, later. 

After you’re done untangling, fix any broken accessories, donate gently used items that you no longer wear, and get rid of pieces that can’t be fixed.  This will make the next steps for organizing your jewelry box much easier.  

Sort Jewelry

Sort all of your accessories into groups.  How to classify your jewelry is totally up to you. You can put all of the same items together, such as rings, necklaces, earrings, and so on. 

You can group them by occasion, like daytime accessories, evening wear pieces, and fun fashion jewelry.  Or you can even sort items by color or metal type.  The choice is yours!

Now you can start to put all of your jewelry back, organizing each group as you go.  Your jewelry box may already have separate compartments, slots, and drawers for different pieces. 

Place each group of items in its own area to keep them organized.  If you need more compartments, consider making your own dividers from cardboard or purchasing pre-made inserts that will fit into your specific jewelry box. 

Go a step further with organization and use a piece of ribbon or fabric to store earrings neatly together, a binder clip to keep rings in order, and tissue paper to wrap individual necklaces.   

Display Jewelry

Consider thinking outside the box, and display your favorite jewelry on your dresser, nightstand, or wall.  Place your everyday pieces in a pretty dish or tray, dangle them from a jewelry tree, or hang them on wall hooks.
