It`s that time of year when a young man`s fancy turns to, "What am I gonna get my girl for Christmas?!" While jewelry is the typical choice, a jewelry box can be an equally pleasing gift. It`s a little out of the ordinary, but buying your special someone a jewelry box shows that you`ve put a little extra effort into her gift.
A big collection of smaller pieces like earrings and rings calls for a large box with several smaller compartments - think two or three drawers with dividers inside. A smaller collection might benefit from a jewelry rack instead of a box. A jewelry rack can be placed on a dresser or hung on a wall to save space. Some racks revolve to make access to jewelry easier. Even if the her jewelry collection grows later on, a jewelry rack will come in handy for her favorite and thus, most often worn pieces.
Second, don`t limit yourself to the boxes carried by the jewelry store where you bought her last piece of jewelry. There are many woodworkers all over the United States who are handcrafting jewelry boxes. These boxes are usually sold through local gift stores and not through jewelry store chains. In addition, art galleries often have beautiful boxes, and of course you can find them online.
But what kind of box should you get? There are still many options available among the styles of wooden jewelry boxes, jewelry chests and jewelry racks.
A couple of things to remember: First, much like jewelry, this is an area where quality counts. A cheap, flimsy box with the wrong kind of lining can actually make jewelry tarnish faster. You want to find a sturdy box, preferably solid wood, with a fabric lining. There are also smaller boxes of glass or ceramic that might be good for teens, but buying anything other than wood for a woman`s large collection of jewelry is just asking for trouble.
If she has plenty of necklaces and just a few earrings you could get by with a necklace rack to hang necklaces and a small box for the earrings. Having chunkier bracelets and pins, however, means that a box with larger, more open compartments may be in order. Many jewelry boxes now have areas for specific types of jewelry: soft slots for rings, side compartments to hang necklaces and bracelets, even long compartments to lay out watches.
