Mel’s View: Why Do Jewelry Cases Keep Getting Bigger?


jewelry doggieWho’d have “thunk” years ago that women would one day need armoires, to store all their baubles, and gems?

My mother wore her wedding band and engagement ring 24/7, and any thing else she had probably resided in her top drawer (she didn’t have much!)

Today, many women have a treasure trove of jewelry. Whatever the source of acquisition, or however much one possesses, there are now all sorts of storage cases, from decorative to mundane, from small to humongous, from felt-lined to bare plastic. I’ve seen them all in the last 24 years of owning Stacks and Stacks and attending hundreds of trade shows.

The cases keep getting larger and I keep getting older, that’s the way it goes! Unlike my normal organization mantra of if you haven’t worn it in over a year get rid of it, you may want to keep and protect your jewelry.

I’ve featured a few of my favorites for jewelry storage, including a safe to store the real gold and diamonds, not the cheap stuff!

    Organizing jewelry in compartments is a great way to increase their longevity. The more storage options, the better!
