The Perfect Jewelry Boxes For Women

September 16th, 2011 by wys

Some ladies love gemstones, some others gold and for many, any kind of jewelry is welcome. Jewelry boxes for women are as important as the ornaments. They hold and protect these treasured collections for eternity.

Materials for jewelry boxes come in a wide range to suit different aesthetic and personal preferences. A jewelry box’s size and construction is dependent on the extent of the collection it has to contain. The variations in jewelry also need to be taken into consideration.

For instance, you cannot store a collection of gemstones in a wooden box without a lining. If placed together without a soft lining to shield them, the surfaces of the stones can get scratched. In the same vein, a box that does not have compartments will end up with the stones rubbing against one another damaging their facades.

The best boxes for large collections are those made of ornately done up wood. Antique boxes with compartments are a preferred choice among women for their jewelry. This would include cup holders for rings and earrings, removable trays for necklaces, and rolls for watches or bracelets

Wooden boxes are considered classics and there are a number of ways in which their lids can be done up. Besides carving and etching, marquetry is common too. Marquetry is where small bits of veneer in different shades and textures are used to fill in selected designs.

Because of its durability, leather is often used as a casing. These are perfect for jewelry collections that are a mix of stones and metals. The soft casing protects jewelry from abrasion. Available in black, brown, tan, and their variants, there is a vast choice in leather casing boxes.

Fashion trends have made colors like baby pink and lime green popular as well. Single compartment boxes are available as also those with extendable trays and lined interiors. Musical boxes can also be considered, depending on the size of your collection. You will find these with a little figurine on top and a winding button behind to get the music playing. There are various kinds with drawers, hooks, compartments and even doors to give them that unique look.

For women who love their jewelry on the go, a leather case would be perfect. Choose from the simple rolls that holds all you need in the suitcase or the compartmentalized box that comes together with a strap. Based on the kind of accessories you want to store, boxes can vary.

Watch boxes come with rolls that hold between 4 and 10 watches. The rolls can also be removed to make space for other items that you may have. A selection of bangles can be stored on rolls in bangle boxes. Choose from single or multiple roll boxes. You could select a closed or glass covered box that will allow you to look at your jewelry.

Choose your jewelry box based on the kind of jewels you want to store. This is the ideal way to keep your collection safe.
