Jewelry boxes date back to hundreds of decades ago. Interestingly, even after tremendous advancement in technology, the modern jewelry box design still revolves around the ancient design of the 1900s. Great American Metal Manufacturers, the likes of Jennings Brothers, Oldenbusch, NB Rogers, Kronheimer, and Brainard and Wilson, are known to have capitalized in this business. Massive production of these cases was experienced between 1904 and 1918 with hundreds of patents being acquired.
The most noticeable difference between the antique jewelry boxes and what we have today lies on the construction materials. Ancient metal workers used heavy and extremely durable metals, silver, and gold. As such, they were hard to break in, and, of course, heavy. Interestingly, most of them still exist today only that they are hard to find and could be insanely expensive.
So, Of What Importance Is a Jewelry Box?
Now, pieces of jewelry are expensive. As such, you can’t afford to lose one each and every day. Therefore, it’s only reasonable that you find a way of keeping them safe. Secondly, these beauty accessories vary in design and size. As such, they require different levels of care. For instance, necklaces and pearls are known to tangle as easily as they are to break. Consequently, you have no option but to keep them in a way that they won’t tangle with other small items. Again, pieces like rings, earrings, pins, and other tiny beauties can be easily misplaced if thrown in ‘busy’ handbags and purses. Therefore, having a box with different compartments for them is irresistible.
What Makes a Good Jewelry Box?
A jewelry storage box is only as good as the number of pieces it can hold safely. While some people own just a few countable items, others can own several hundreds of these beauty accessories. As such, you need a box to hold them in securely without affecting their value.
Besides the storage compartments, it’s also important to consider the material used especially in its interiors. Most boxes come lined with velvety material to protect the jewelry from obtaining scratches. Again, reliable cases should protect your shiny items from tanning and losing their original color and texture.
Do you travel a lot? If so, you must appreciate compact and easily portable jewelry boxes that slide easily into your suitcase or handbag. Though small in design, these still offer several compartments for different pieces to keep you organized while on the go.
All that said, let’s discover some of the best-selling storages and organizers we have on the market today.
10. Beautify 3-Piece Stackable Jewelry Box Storage and Organizer
Our first contender is this ladies’ beauty from Beautify. This is a 3-piece stackable storage and organizer coming at below 30 bucks. Its exterior features luxurious faux leather in snakeskin style. This stackable box has low to medium profile. It’s, therefore, perfect for women who want just a safe for the treasures they have acquired over the years without looking overly girlish.
Beautify measures 9.9’’ by 6.4’’ by 7.1’’. This size makes it a perfect choice for ladies whose dressing tables are low in space. The best thing about Beautify is that the 3 stackable tiers are also removable. This means that you can use them individually. This feature again makes it easy for you to survey the different types of jewelry you have at a glance. Even better, you can opt to leave it on top of your dressing table or hide it in your drawers.
As I told you before, Beautify is an amazing organizer. It has several different sized compartments to hold all your pieces ranging from the smallest to the biggest. The top tier, for instance, has 2 large sections ideal for your large statement pearl and locket necklaces. In addition, this top tray also has 6 smaller boxes. Of these, 1 has a pillow cushioning to hold your golden and diamond rings. The second shelf offers you another 25 smaller compartments that will hold almost everything from loops to studs and watches. Lastly, the 3rd tier features 3 large sections for larger jewelries. Above all, it has a lock to keep your treasures secure.
Does it have any downsides? Well, it’s a bit hard to identify any limitation with this unit given the price and how roomy it is. However, several users feel that hinges to hold the tiers together would make a huge difference.
- It has 3 tiers
- It’s spacious
- Has a lock for added security
- It’s inexpensive
- It lacks hinges
Sometimes, you need not beat yourself so hard to get those nice things in life. That’s exactly what this Jewelry case from Beautify proofs. It’s spacious, easy to use, luxurious, and above all, affordable. I do recommend it wholeheartedly.
9. Umbra Tesora Jewelry Box
Albeit incredibly spacious, you’ll agree with me that Beautify is a bit bulky and wouldn’t be of much help, for instance, while on the go. If you don’t have any other choice, you’ll either be forced to choose what beauties to carry and what to leave behind. Even worse, you would still risk losing them if you have nowhere to place them when not in use. Obviously, that’s the last thing you want to do, right? That’s why I had to find some room for this Umbra Terosa on this list.
Umbra Terosa has a flavorful, modern, stylish, and functional design from the creative minds of a one Sung Wook Park. It’s made of concrete and copper for durability. It also has a pretty rose gold rimmed lid. Amazingly, the top has a tray design which acts as a catch-all for your small pieces, for instance, rings and dots. Umbra Terosa measures 5’’ in diameter and 4.5’’ in height. As such, it slides into your purse or handbag in a breeze.
This adorable box highlights 2 stackable compartments which offer enough space for your small treasures including rings, bracelets, bungles, and a sleek wrist watch. What else? The 2 compartments have soft felt pillows to protect your small treasures from getting scratches. The only flaw with this was that there’s nothing holding the 2 sections together besides gravity.
- It’s compact for travels
- Has a stylish tone
- Has 2 sections for precise placement
- It holds few items
- It accommodates small-sixed jewelry
Everybody wants to look presentable at any time. Thus, having a compact storage to sneak in your shiny things into your suitcase can never be a bad idea. Umbra Tesora comes to see that you do that in style and with no much hustle.
8. Seya Wooden Jewelry Box and Organizer (Cherry)

This one-of-a-kind jewelry box has been innovatively hand-crafted with high-quality wood. It then features an elegant cherry finish that gives it its romantic modern outlook. In addition, Siaya opens quietly to reveal its plush fabric lining interiors. While this cream velvet gives it its stunning look, it also protects your shining trinkets from losing their value.
As I had hinted before, Seya has lots and lots of space for all your jewelry. This case has 4 large slide-out drawers each with several compartments. The top rack offers 5 more compartments for your small dazzlers. This rack also has 7 ring rolls where you can tuck in your pins, rings, and earrings. You’ll also appreciate its twin swing-out sides with up to 8 necklace holders to prevent them from tangling.
Like other users, you’ll also like its stunning lock for the safety of your jewelries. Even more, this box is available in 3 finishes; cherry, espresso, and walnut which is slightly expensive than the other 2.

In case you’re wondering, the drawers slide in and out effortlessly, thanks to their pretty and sturdy handles. Again, the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th drawers from the top are all of the same sizes. Consequently, you can remove them and switch their order to suit your preferences. At the top, you’ll find holders with velvet cushions for your small rings and earrings.
Moreover, this unit has 2 fold-out compartments. Each of the 2 opens to reveal 5 hanging hooks for your necklaces and bracelets.

6. SONGMICS Ballerina UJMC002 Music Jewelry Box
While hunting for the best jewelry boxes for you, I aimed at bringing something for everyone across all ages. Resultantly, I came across this adorable Songmics Beauty Box for your young daughter, granddaughter or niece. Besides being beautiful, this box will help her keep her tiny treasures in an organized manner and protected. So, what does it bring?
Firstly, let’s just agree that the manufacturer gave much thoughtfulness regarding this box’s color. You know little kiddos and pink, right? In addition, Songmics highlights a huge heart drawing with an adorable rabbit on either side. It also has other colored hearts on the front side and a white-dotted and a flawlessly sliding drawer on the front side. How will she arrange her treasures? Let’s see.
This box offers 3 spacious posts on the right side. These are perfect for holding her bracelets and bangles. At the center, she’ll be awed by the spacious compartment that’s big enough for bigger ornaments. To the left, she’ll find several velvety cushions where she can tuck her pins, earrings and magic rings.
What will steal her heart the most is the enchanted music that this box will play once the lid is opened. Even better, she’ll love to watch cute Ballerina dance to Swan Lake tune. She’ll also benefit from a cute oval mirror attached on the lid. To switch on the music, gently wind a secret key on the backside of the box.
Just like several other parents, I felt that this box was a little over-priced. Again, it feels a bit cheap and may not last all years. However, by the time it’s done, she’ll have come back here for a larger box!
- It’s ideal for little girls
- It has secret compartments
- It plays music while Ballerina dances
- It’s pricey for its size
As your cutie grows old, she’ll certainly collect several pieces of precious jewelries from you, family members, and friends. One best way to keep the good memories is by having a reliable case to store her gifts. Though this won’t last forever, she’ll certainly remember it even when aged.

Our second best jewelry box comes all the way from an ancient town in England formerly known as Kirkby Kendal. Concerning beauty and organization, this company has left no stone unturned in a bid to beat the competition. Its exterior features precisely oiled and shiny leather that will automatically add a modern touch to any room. Its interior is covered by high-edge suede with a silky smooth feeling. Besides giving it a modern outlook, this suede also protects your treasures from scratches.
This box features 3 big slide-out drawers and 2 other smaller drawers. Each of these is fitted with a gleaming clasp that has been sturdily installed for one-hand opening and closing. Again, these posts have different sizes and will, therefore, accommodate varying items. Notably, the 3 large compartments are equal in size. As such, the order can be personalized for advanced convenience.
Unfortunately, there have been claims of mold growing on the leather. Again, several customers report that their jewelry is turning after several months of using the box. As such, I have no option but to flag it unworthy of your bucks. Luckily there are other boxes in this list waiting for you.

Everything about this box is great. However, there seems to be a lot of complaints emanating from its usage. Since there’re other spacious and even more classic boxes on this list, there’s no need of risking your bucks and jewelry with this.

These spaces are then fitted with cushions that have been thoughtfully designed to accommodate different watches with varying sizes.
This box is similar to the previous case we had reviewed earlier. However, this one has only 12 slots while the former had 24. Consequently, this one costs almost half the cost of the previous model.
