My Jewellery Collection and Storage: Necklaces

I asked earlier on Twitter if you would be interested in seeing my jewellery collection and how I store it, and a few of you expressed an interest so here it is! I will be doing it as a series to separate it all up a little, starting with my necklaces :)


Before I organised my jewellery, my necklaces were either kept in a jewellery box or laid out across my desk, meaning they were always getting in the way or getting tangled up in each other. When you have a lot of necklaces this can become to be very annoying, so I decided it was time to invest in a wall hanger for them. I got this wire "My Necklaces" hanger from this eBay seller. I love shabby chic furniture and I think this fits in well, and even better, it only cost £5.75 with free postage, and it arrived within two days! I distribute my necklaces randomly across the pegs (I like how some of them hang lower than others) and it keeps them from getting tangled and they are all visible and easy to find. I only keep my costume/fashion jewellery on this hanger- my more valuable and precious necklaces stay in my jewellery box.

  9. That hanger is just beautiful, I may have to get one for myself, I currently have a big Jasper Conran jewelery box but my necklaces end up all knotted together! Such a fab idea!

  22. Wow! You really are in love with necklaces, Frances. Your collection is astonishing and is apparently composed of different styles. I admire your ‘my necklace’ hanger so much. And, I think it is the best position you can put your necklaces on, in order to prevent them from breaking or tangling. Thumbs up!
