What is a jewelry box?
The jewelry box is not very bulky, but it can hold many of your rings, necklaces or other beauty accessories. Its drawers and compartments act as a real organizer to take care and store your most precious jewelry. This concerns in particular the dust and oxidation which can attack the metal constituting your jewels and tarnish them, taking away their superb brilliance, or to avoid the shocks or to tangle your favorite necklaces at the bottom of a dresser. The jewelry box has known many forms and appearances since its conception in ancient Egypt. But it is safe to say that any storage box designed to hold jewelry and other pendants can be considered a jewelry box. Whatever the term used, jewelry box, jewelry storage or storage organizer, all these accessories have the same purpose and differ only in their appearance, size or time of design. Today, wooden jewelry boxes are usually equipped with a mirror and the bottom of their compartments is covered with a soft velvet to take care of your jewelry. The drawers allow you to organize your collection as you wish, so that you can always find your way around when choosing which pair of earrings to wear, or which necklace will perfectly match your outfit. Obviously, a large leather jewelry box will be more likely to receive a large quantity of accessories, and your bracelets, watches and other costume jewelry will find their place more easily than in a small jewelry box. This type of model will ideally be accompanied by a jewelry holder to store larger pieces, or a watch box for your favorite watches.
Why choose a jewelry box?
Jewelry storage has always been very important to jewelry lover and other charms that possess value, whether sentimental or financial. From the earliest designs that looked more like treasure chests, jewelry storage was primarily for the safety of expensive pieces rather than the preservation of the quality. Today, jewelry storage is based on compartmentalization and keeping order, rather than security and protection of jewelry sets. Although some models have a latch or locking system, it is rare that modern jewelry boxes have a tamper-proof locking mechanism, as they are usually kept in safe houses these days. However, the jewelry storage method you choose is important when buying and collecting antique and vintage jewelry, especially if your jewelry contains precious stones, such as emerald, sapphire or diamond. While some stones are not affected, there are some gemstones, such as amethyst, jadeite, quartz and opals, that should not be stored or frequently exposed to direct sunlight and heat. For owners of these stones, jewelry boxes are an attractive way to preserve the quality of their unique gems while serving as general storage. In short, the more valuable your jewelry is, the more necessary a jewelry box is. It's also a great decorative accessory at a relatively modest price to add a small refined touch to your room for example.
