For The Love Of Jewels

I love jewels. Jewels with a long history behind them. The jewels you find at a market thrifting. Jewels you got as a gift, and the ones you hold near and dear to your heart. Statement jewels, dainty jewels - love them all!

That’s why I don’t think they should be tucked away in a cupboard, or hidden in a jewellery box. To show them extra love, keep them safe and add a little fun in the décor department, I believe in showcasing them in pretty little ways...!

      Glass Shadow Boxes: The perfect collectors storage piece. These are amazing, I feel like it brings an element of a boutique to your home. You can hang these on a wall, inside your closet or just have them out on your table. Seeing what you have, means you will wear it and not ignore pieces for ages when they are tucked away. I love that you can see what is inside each box, while simultaneously keeping them clean and protected (I hate tangled necklaces!). I found mine at Chapters/Indigo, a Canadian book & lifestyle store. You can also find them over at West Elm!

       Bowls: The fun thing about this is it can be any size or colour that co-ordinates with the rest of your décor! Here shown are pretty little whimsical Anthropologie bowls that were (super affordable) and super to die for. Displaying bangles, watches, or rings are so fun in this format. I think it just adds a pleasant working piece in a tray with other items, or just out on your dresser like I have displayed loosely.

3.    Knobs: Another fabulous way to neatly display your jewelry would be to take knobs and hang them on a wall that suits best. I love the variety at Anthropologie, you can mix and match different ones, or spell out something (like "adorn," "jewels" or your name) with their monogram knobs.  I haven’t given this one a go just yet, but it is definitely on my (DIY) “do-it-yourself” to-do list!

    Mood Vase: As seen on The Coveteur, I absolutely melted at the sight of this display. Partly because it is so simple to create and customize, and majorly because it looks gorgeous! Another DIY must-try.
