These days, jewelry organizers come in such an array of shapes and sizes that it can be challenging to narrow down an ideal fit. Do you go for the utilitarian option, the design-forward one, or compromise on an alternative that's somewhere in the middle? All in all, it boils down to where it will live — on top of a vanity, hanging on the wall, etc. — and the purpose it's meant to serve, beyond just functioning as a landing pad for your baubles.

First, you need to survey what you own and allow that to inform the type of jewelry organizer you invest in. If you have significantly more necklaces than rings, it should account for that. No one likes detangling a jumble of chains. Classic vessels with drawers, lids, and compartmentalized trays are great if you have a diverse and abundant collection, but if you want to keep a tight edit of your daily wear easily in reach, consider a tiered stand or trinket dish. Either way, where you plan on keeping it, and what you expect to store in it will be a good marker for what you should buy. Allow the 10 jewelry organizers ahead to inspire you.
