How do I Choose the Best Earring Organizer?

S. Gonzales

The best earring organizer to purchase will depend on how many pairs of earrings you own and how you want to display them. Your personal style preferences and your room decor can also factor into your decision. Investing in an earring organizer can help you reduce the risk of damage to your earrings and help you keep an inventory of your jewelry.

One benefit of investing in an earring organizer is that it can remove clutter from your life. It can help you keep yourself organized and dress yourself in a timely fashion. Using an earring organizer can also help you avoid damaging your jewelry. This is because an organizer lets you separate your earrings and keep them a safe distance from each other. By not tangling your earrings each time you place them in a standard jewelry box, you are protecting your earrings.

Choose an earring organizer that lets you see all of your earrings at once. When determining how to complete your outfit, you will want all of your earring options presented to you at the same time. This can make your decision much easier and faster.

Earring organizers that allow you to group earrings by style are a sound investment. You don't want to be digging through your jewelry box for a specific type of earring if you don't have to. Keeping all your earring styles in one place can help you keep track of your earrings, as well. You can quickly do an inventory of your jewelry by simply looking at each group of style of earrings and counting how many pairs there are.

Some popular earring organizer types include trees, cases and racks. Trees are likely to store only a few pairs of earrings. Cases can store many more earrings and can even include drawers for your more expensive pairs. Racks are organizers that usually keep the earrings on full display. Some racks might be able to provide you with various display options; for instance, some can be hung from walls or doors.

There will be many styles of earring organizers available to you when you are shopping for one. Try to select an earring organizer that complements the decor in your room. You will be using your organizer virtually every day, and it likely will be on display for anyone who enters your room to see. Buy an earring organizer that can be easily integrated into your room's color scheme and theme style so that it doesn't clash with the rest of your room.

@pleonasm - I actually have a bead shelf built into my set of drawers, so that I can just store the earrings there. There is even a little bar sitting across a few of the compartments, so I can hang some of the earrings from that.

It's not very high, though, so it's not idea for very long earrings.

I actually quite like those little statues with the wires sticking out from the top as a good way to store jewelry like chandelier earrings and necklaces. That way you can put your earrings on display even when you aren't wearing them.

Or, you can do what I do and tape a bit of string across your dressing mirror, and hang the earrings from that. Just be careful to keep it straight or they will all fall together in the middle.

@umbra21 - I find the best thing to do when you're looking for a jewelry holder is to go for something that is used commercially, as they don't care at all about the looks and go for something as practical as possible.

You can get commercial jewelry displays and holders online, particularly through auction sites as stores will often sell them on when they upgrade or move premises.

If you've got a lot of stud earrings you might want to consider storing them in bead boxes, which are made to store beading collections. They have lots of individual spaces so you can sort out your earrings by size or color or whatever.

Don't try to store hanging earrings there though as they will get tangled. They need some kind of rack to hang them from.

I tend to collect jewelry boxes and have never been able to throw any of them out, just because they were all given to me by various people and so they all have some meaning for me.

But often they aren't really all that idea for storing jewelry. When you think about it, people are more likely to give you something that looks pretty, rather than something with practical value for storage.

It's possible to get both at once sometimes, I suppose, but usually the best jewelry organizers aren't all that pretty.

I think I might start keeping all my jewelry in something that's practical and just use the boxes as display pieces instead.
