J is for Jewelry

All of my prized possessions are jewelry. They include a silver chain necklace that belonged to my father, a pair of diamond earrings that he gave me for my sixth birthday, and a real gold 1881 coin turned necklace that belonged to my grandfather (pictured below).

Being a lifelong ‘girly-girl,’ I’ve always loved jewelry. Many of the first gifts I received was jewelry – a locket with my initial on it, a charm bracelet, and a pair of pearl earrings. I find there is nothing that is more special than someone going out and taking the time to pick me out a beautiful piece of jewelry.

While I love delicate jewelry, I also love costume jewelry. My grandmother has given me tons of vintage necklaces that burst off the strand with huge beads and bright colors. Forever21 is usually a drool-fest for me, and it’s all I can do not to buy up the entire jewelry section when I go.

Jewelry organization is extremely important. I have tons of ways to display, show-off, and organize my jewelry. For years I kept my necklaces and bracelets jumbled in a box in my dresser, but now that I’ve organized it all, I can’t imagine it any other way.

Hopefully I’ve provided some inspiration for your own jewelry organizing!

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears,we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.

1 John 3:1-3

  1. Finding a way to organize my jewelry is probably my #1 fashion mission! Ugh…I just never can seem to find something i like! (Right now I’ve resorted to plastic baggies to keep items organized…so not chic!)

    Love this!

  2. Yes! Before I organized all my jewelry it just laid in tangled heaps. But now I have it organized in a way I can display it and enjoy it even if I’m not wearing it :)

    Another tip also… I love the look of rings in a little clear dish or I heard somewhere that Lauren Conrad does hers in a martini glass, which would look sooo adorable & sophisticated!
