Jewelry Armoires – Striking, Unusual, and Eminently Useful

By Edan K Alvo Subscribe to RSS | January 21st 2012 | Views:

Jewelry armoires are actual pieces of furniture that hold jewelry while adding to the décor and style of a room. Jewelry armoires are the perfect gift for someone who not only loves jewelry, but is a serious and prodigious collector of it. Regardless of the design – classically carved, ornate, painted, or simple, sleek, and modern – a jewelry armoire is a clear sign that the owner takes their jewelry storage seriously.

More than just jewelry boxes, jewelry armoires are royalty among jewelry boxes. Catering to the perception of jewelry armoires as serious high-end items, they are made of the finest woods available, and crafted with impeccable care. They store the maximum amount of jewelry in the minimum amount of space. In addition to the multiple compartments and storage spaces that one would expect to find in such pieces, they often have one or two vertical side compartments with hooks for hanging extra-long opera-length necklaces. Jewelry armoires often contain extra-plush interiors, to store precious items carefully and beautifully, and protect them from damage from dust, damp, and rough handling.

When purchasing jewelry armoires, either as gifts or as a splurge for yourself, here are some things to keep in mind: Jewelry armoires are furniture, so you will want to choose a piece that suits the décor of the room it will be added to. Jewelry armoires should also complement the color scheme of the room, and speak to the recipient’s personal style. If you are not sure of the recipient’s style and color scheme, go with black or a medium-toned, fine grained wood, incorporating classic lines and using simple ornamentation. Highly-ornamented and elaborately carved or painted jewelry armoires work best in either Victorian or rococo décor, or as a counterpoint to a room with light walls and opulent furnishings. Jewelry armoires that feature contrasting inlaid designs, ornate lock plates, and gold or brass accents are also perfect for this type of setting. Further, jewelry armoires with ball or claw feet, which reference jewelry armoires of earlier eras, are perfect for rooms like this. If you know something about the recipient’s jewelry collection, take that into account when selecting and purchasing jewelry armoires. If your recipient collects necklaces but avoids brooches, for example, you will want to choose an armoire with fewer horizontal drawers and more vertical storage for storing necklaces of varying lengths. If he or she is a watch collector, you will want to find jewelry armoires with several compartments containing either watch pillows, or watch pillow rolls.

Choosing jewelry armoires clearly takes a higher budget and a little more thought and homework than choosing a smaller jewelry case, but it is by no means an intimidating or daunting task. Keep the above factors in mind, and the armoire you choose will be the perfect match for its recipient. Jewelry armoires are a distinctive gift, and one that clearly shows the recipient that they are well thought of. Further, their beauty and utility make them pieces that will be enjoyed for a long time, possibly even for several generations.
