Jewelry Boxes vs Jewelry Travel Cases

What jewelry boxes are made of and where can you find the perfect one for you? Jewelry boxes, how to select them properly? They come in all different shapes, materials and colors but essentially jewelry boxes have been designed and by jewelers that desire to turn a simple container into a real talking tool. So it is always good advice to know what your options are before you buy anything.

You will find that there are two basic kinds of jewelry boxes the first are wall jewelry boxes which are mounted on the wall in the typical manner and the other is the miniature type which is usually just a small closet with a lid. Which type of box you buy really depends upon what you intend to use it for and the size. If you are buying a small box to put jewelry in then you need to make sure that the lid is large enough and the compartments are deep enough so that you won’t break the pins or the hinges when you open the box. You also need to make sure that the lid is sealed and that the compartments are secure so that you don’t accidentally knock everything over. Another important thing to look at is how tall the person is and how much of a hindrance that a tall person may pose to opening the box. Wall jewelry boxes on the other hand are pretty good sized and normally the lid will fit around a average height person, making it easy to open and close.

When you are looking at jewelry boxes be sure that you look at the inside of them as well as what the outside compartments can hold. The inside of most jewelry boxes will hold rings, necklaces and earrings while the outside compartments will hold watches, bracelets or any other type of trinkets that you might have. Buttons are another thing that you must be careful with because rings can easily get stuck between the buttons, especially if you have special trinket rings. If you are unsure as to what the inside and outside compartments hold then you should call the manufacturer of the jewelry boxes that you are interested in buying from and ask them for more information.
