Storing necklaces in a jewelry box is not the best solution unless…
- there are compartments big enough to hold each necklace separately and
- the full contents of the box is visible at all times.
I’ve found jewelry box storage for necklaces to cause endless tangling and chaos. I forget what I have and refrain from wearing anything that requires straightening out. Ideally, necklaces would be hung tangle-free in an area where you can see them as you get dressed.
I have an inexpensive, convenient solution for my everyday fashion necklaces. I’ve hung a tie-rack horizontally on the wall of my walk-in wardrobe and each hook holds a few necklaces. A hook rack will also work and so will hanging necklaces on nails on the inside of your closet door. No untangling, effortless access, constant visibility and easy accessorizing. What a pleasure.
I much prefer the aesthetic of pretty jewelry boxes, but the messy inaccessibility of my necklaces drove me batty. Seeing as I don’t wear earrings or bracelets, my jewelry box is home to my rings and nothing else.
