I feel like these posts are similar to the "What's in my Bag?" posts... people like to see inside your closet. Well for me, it's outside my closet on top of my dresser. I definitely think it helps to have your jewelry out and displayed so you know what you have. It also makes your apartment look great! I have lots of jewelry stored to the side of my dresser but thought I'd show you the pretty stuff:
A vintage inspired mirror that coordinated with the ring display (notice the birds?) from Urban Outfitters. The ring display isn't available anymore but there are some similar items on their website. I like to hang my vintage scarves on it.
Urban Outfitters Jewelry Tree which was broken when it arrived in the mail, but nothing super glue couldn't fix. I hang my heavier jewels on it because it's very sturdy.
Whenever my mom finds bodice dress forms she buys them for me so apologies that I don't recall where this one is from. I've built quite the collection. It's pretty short so I can only hang 16" necklaces or bracelets on it.

Another Urban Outfitters purchase from many years ago. This used to be a little more full but I recently added this...
|See my belt display behind it?|
Any guesses what this is? Silverware holder! That's right. My forks and knives used to hang from this. That is until they started discoloring. I kept the holder because I thought it would be great for my rings! I think it kind of looks like an angel, no?
I also followed a tip from Bath & Body Works to use old lotion jars to store jewelry. It makes them smell great! I store my vintage brooches and my sterling silver jewelry that can't be hung out in the open.
