There's nothing worse than not having access to your jewelry because it's too
tangled to wear. Here, I'll share my best tips for organizing your jewelry.
Owning a jewelry collection is not as simple as it may seem. If you're like me, you've
most likely found yourself sorting through tangled necklaces and bracelets, trying to
separate single pieces.
Organizing clumps of stuck jewelry may seem like a chore, but the real punishment
is not being able to wear some of your favorite accessories. In this blog, I'll share
my tips for organizing your jewelry to make this process simple and stress-free.
Sort Through Your Collection
The hardest part of organizing jewelry is starting. Though that dreaded jewelry
drawer may seem impossible to manage, those tangled pieces simply need some
tender love and care. Unload your jewelry collection piece by piece until you're able
to separate and sort your jewelry into groups based on metals, accessory type, and
value. Once you have distinct groups for each category, the rest of your organization
process will be a breeze.
Only Keep the Jewelry You Love
Let's be honest, sometimes our love of jewelry is what clogs our collection and
makes it unwearable. I have a horrible habit of collecting and hoarding jewelry
pieces, even when I haven't worn them in years. These vast piles of necklaces,
bracelets, and rings make organizing your jewelry even more complicated.
For the best organization, examine each of your jewelry pieces and only keep the
accessories you love. Every time I come across a piece of jewelry that I don't feel
connected to or even remember I owned, I donate it. If you have trouble departing
with your accessories, try reminding yourself that you're making more room for future
Invest in Containers
For years I stored all my jewelry in the same cramped jewelry box. After years of
being frustrated with my jewelry becoming lost or tangled, I finally invested in a
categorized jewelry container. Using an organized container for my jewelry
completely changed the way I store accessories altogether.
THESE CHANGED MY LIFE
When you use a sorted jewelry container, you can separate your jewelry collections
and store them by category. I recommend finding a jewelry container with racks to
hang necklaces rather than lay them in piles. These racks prevent tangling and make
spotting individual jewelry pieces much more manageable.
These containers also help separate different types of metals and more valuable
pieces from your standard collection. For example, not every type of gold jewelry is
the same. In fact, there are a variety of different types of gold jewelry. When you use
an organized container, you can assort your gold jewelry by value to ensure that
more expensive pieces are in a secure location.

you truly love.
