Pretty Ways to Display Your Jewelry

Posted on April 12, 2018 by Mary Hood | 0 Comments

The best part of owning jewelry, of course, is wearing it! But we can’t wear all of our jewelry all of the time. Artistically organizing and displaying our jewelry is a great way to enjoy the jewelry we’re not wearing at the moment, add a splash of beauty to our living space—and show off our impeccable tastes in the process.

We recommend displaying your more casual jewelry or jewelry that could easily be replaced. For truly valuable pieces, it’s better to store them somewhere safer where they will be protected from gathering dust and getting lost in the shuffle of things.

Display your favorite rings in a pretty dish.

Tip: In some cases, less is more. Too much jewelry in one dish defeats the purpose of displaying your jewelry.
