Diamonds and Pearls


My obsession started young when I would spend my days digging through my grandma's costume jewelry and "accessorizing" her with every clip-on earring and necklace I could find. Bless her patient heart.

Throughout the years I've been collecting jewelry. Or hoarding, depending on your outlook on life. I, myself, try to be a little bit more of a 'glass half full' kinda girl. But anywho, I used to keep all of my jewelry in cheap, plastic tackle boxes that I found one day at Meijer.
Ugly? ABSOLUTELY! But definitely a space saver while in college!

Now that I'm all mature and a college graduate and what not, I decided it was time to move on from the ugly plastic tackle boxes and on to something more sophisticated. Because, as we all know, jewelry holders need to be sophisticated. Plus, I had collected so many cute pieces of jewelry that I wanted to have something that would display them.

Enter the best jewelry holder to ever grace my walls...

I found this jewelry holder here while searching Etsy one day, and since it was mid-April, it was the perfect time to e-mail the link to Justin for my birthday present. And being the amazing boyfriend that he is, my boo boo bought it for me. I've been in love ever since.


This hanging jewelry holder can hold up to 84 pairs of earrings...


...has four long posts to hold bracelets...

...and 13 pegs for necklaces.

Since this jewelry holder doesn't have any space for rings, I went to Target and bough a ceramic flower ring holder. Simple, but large enough to display all of my rings.

I only have on display my favorite and most worn pieces. You best believe I still have those ugly plastic tackle boxed tucked away in a drawer, holding the rest of my jewelry. They are good for something!

With my jewelry obsession at an all time high, I'm finding it hard to keep my jewelry display nice and neat. But that's just the price you have to pay to be a 'jewelry collector'. (That's going to be my new job title.) 

How do you organize your jewelry? Do you like to display your jewelry in your room or keep it safely tucked away?

That's totally fancy, I like! One day I'll have a makeup/jewelry table when I move, and it will be organized...til then my jewelry has a few different homes in makeup bags, drawers, and decorative boxes. :/

Love that - I'm still using the ugly tackle box for some of my stuff! Works good for stuff that I don't wear all that time. That one is super cute!

I have never seen a more perfect jewelry holder in my life! I am also a self-proclaimed jewelry addict and I can never find a jewelry tree big enough to hold everything! Not to mention every time I do, I just buy more jewelry and it eventually doesn't fit! I will definitely be purchasing that. Awesome post!
