How do you store your jewelry?

I'm getting rid of a Lori Grenier jewelry box. It's one of the older "wooden" ones that is falling apart.

I need something for my silver jewelry that will protect items from tarnish. I've moved a lot into a folding book type thing that I've had forever. Problem with that is I have to go through 'pages' to find something.

I now have different collections:e.g. turquoise, malachite, etc. and have been looking at Colleen Lopez' boxes. However, I have her watch box and it really is thick cardboard.

I have my costume jewelry and gold organized. It's my silver, which I have the most of, that I need to organize.

The only good thing is I've stopped buying jewelry; I don't know where I'd put one more thing.

I have all the jewelry I've ever had in my life plus the jewelry belonging to my late mom, aunt, and grandma. Add to that all the jewelry I buy regularly, I had a LOAD. Lol I store the majority in clear 5x7 photo boxes, the. Stack them in an opaque chest of drawers. One drawer is for colored jewelry, one for silver, one for gold, one for pearls, one just for bracelets. Etc. this method works well for me. I just bought some additional clear boxes to add some new jewelry.

I use these boxes from HSN.....Colleen Lopez jewelry boxes. There are many different variations and colors, but the best part is the tarnish resistant protection. I've had some of mine for over a year now and haven't had to polish any of my silver.

When she has them on with her gem and jewelry shows, you'll often get free shipping or a discount of some sort. I'll warn you though, they sell out fast. I've used Lori G's too, and most of my things would tarnish quickly.

I have the Lori Grenier original armoire plus lots and lots of her boxes and many of the Prestige boxes from HSN. I've never had a tarnishing problem with any of them. Before Lori made her first black plastic anti-tarnish box, I used an anti-tarnish wooden silver flatware box for my jewelry.

I have a small jewelry box that sits on the dresser. The outside is velvet and it has a couple shelves. I think it has a silver tarnish liner. I only have gold jewelry though. Bought it on the q a bunch of years ago. I believe it to be from Lori.

HSN has a organizer called Fold and Dazzle. I just watched a presentation on their prerecorded segment.

I like that it does not look like a jewelry holder and she placed it between folded shirts and you could not tell what it was.

I've got a beautiful, wood jewelry armoire but most of my jewelry is kept in a Silver Safekeeper jewelry box. Most of my jewelry is sterling silver.

I store my necklaces in a Thomas Pacconi armoire. The rest is stored in a large jewelry box. I bought my own sterling silver anti tarnish fabric from JoAnns and made a pouch to store my sterling silver pieces. I've stopped buying silver pieces and have more white gold and platinum. Silver is too much maintenance.

flicker: is fold and dazzle tarnish free? I was thinking of getting it and putting my own non tarnish strips in it.

Re: How do you store your jewelry?

I keep almost all my jewelry in a large, locking wooden amoire DH gave me. My most valuable pieces I keep in my safe. There is no way I could effectively store everything in multiple boxes--there's just too much stuff. I like to be able browse through everything before deciding what to wear. Since I don't have a lot of silver, those clear anti-tarnish bags work out fine.
