Do you have a favorite type of jewelry to wear? Earrings? Necklaces? Bracelets? Rings? If I could only choose one style of jewelry to wear for the rest of my life, a statement necklace would be it…hands down. I generally wear only stud earrings…very rarely wear bracelets…and the only rings I wear are my engagement ring and wedding band. The thing is: I’ve accumulated quite a few statement necklaces over the years, and I need a statement necklace display for them.
Years ago, my parents bought me a wonderful, tall jewelry box for all of my baubles. However, it matched the decor from my previous set of furniture, and with our bedroom makeover in progress, it isn’t going to stick around. Besides, the big statement necklace pieces I have very rarely are able to fit inside properly…go figure.
The thing I love about statement necklaces is that they look very pretty when they are on display. Therefore, I’m hoping to eventually solve the conundrum I currently have by adding some trays to the top of the dresser to keep them looking organized and pretty. I’ve been searching high and low for clear lucite trays, as I think they would add the organization factor without distracting from the jewelry. Of course, because that is what I’m looking for I am having the hardest time finding them.
In the meantime, I’m simply attempting to lay my statement necklace display out as if I DID have the trays already. The power of positive thinking…right? Perhaps I can will the lucite trays into my life somehow.
On a side note: the majority of these necklaces are from T.J. Maxx – it probably doesn’t come as any surprise if you know me! If you haven’t perused their jewelry department, I definitely recommend you do so the next time you stop in. I have been able to score some darn awesome baubles for seriously affordable prices. These large statement necklaces normally run at prices over $100 (some have had original price tags at over $200), and I’ve never spent more than $50 on a piece. Score.
So – how do you store your statement jewelry pieces?
