I've got a couple of fairly large jewelry boxes. I bought large ones not because I have tons of jewelry, but because I hate wading through the jumble of chains, earrings, pendants, bracelets, et cetera that my jewelry box almost always eventually turn into. I figured that if I have to fish out bobs and pieces through the chaos that's in the box, then let it be a big box so I at least have space to move things around.
But not with my important pieces. Anyone who appreciates jewelry should invest in a good stand to showcase her favorite pieces. There are plenty of jewelry trees out in the market, but make sure that when you get one, it's heavy and sturdy enough and won't topple over when you hang your chains, hoops and precious gems on it. It would be nice to get something that would great on the top of your dresser, with or without an assortment of women jewelry on it. And lastly, there need to be a catchment of sorts where you can place items that can't be hung, like stud earrings, brooches and luxury pendants.
