To Appreciate Now… and Later

To Appreciate Now… and Later


From the time we are young girls, we have our eyes on jewelry. Eventually our tastes mature but the collection starts as something from a gumball machine or a pretend dress-up set that we store in a trinket box or child’s jewelry box. Since I started dancing when I was just 2½ years old, my first jewelry box was a ballerina music box. It held all my fancy little girl jewelry. Being the sentimental type, it’s one of the keepsakes that I kept for my daughters even after I was given a traditional jewelry box to replace it.

Yes, I still have that box too. It isn’t anything fancy but it is filled with necklaces that my Avon-lady grandmother gave me, pins that I earned from 4-H or honor society and even a glass ring that came from who-knows-where. Every so often, I go through the necklaces and gift them to my daughters. It’s difficult though because they aren’t the kind of thing I want stuffed into a drawer or tangled with gumball machine jewelry. I want them to be treated with love and care.

Last year for Christmas, Miss K received an armoire-style jewelry cabinet to store all her various collections. It’s something she’ll be able to grow with and suits her fashionista personality perfectly. Miss M, however, didn’t want one. She had no interest in such a fancy cabinet for her room. While she says she is a tomboy, not wanting to wear makeup and seldom wearing anything frilly, she’s growing up. She has received expensive jewelry as gifts for her birthdays and other special occasions and it ends up getting tangled in the mess of Rainbow Loom jewelry and prizes from the school festivals.

That had to change and we saw the perfect opportunity to provide her with something classy and mature that she’ll be able to appreciate for years to come. We looked at personalized jewelry boxes from Reed and Barton and found one that reminded us of the young lady we see growing up in front of us. Frankly, I’m jealous. It’s a beautiful jewelry box monogrammed with her initials.

Something is missing. What could it be? Jewelry! - SahmReviews.comThe box is empty. Quick! Someone fill it! -

The Corinthian Jewelry Box has beveled fluted corners, a mahogany satin finish, two compartmentalized drawers, brass finished knobs and side handles. The interior is lined and offers plenty of room to store a variety of jewelry properly.

This jewelry box has room to keep several necklaces from getting tangled. -

There are hooks in the lid for organizing necklaces and a pouch that keeps them from dangling around when the box is opened. This not only keeps them from tangling with each other but it also prevents them from being damaged when the lid closes.

Room for butterflies now. More room for diamonds when she gets older. - SahmReviews.comThe open area on the top provides adequate space for larger broaches and pins as well as rings. Right now, she is adding butterflies, apples and other novelty rings. Someday, she’ll be storing rings that have much more significance. That day, hopefully, is a long way off though!

There are larger compartments for statement pieces and costume jewelry. -

With two drawers, there is no lack of room for organizing. A large, long section of one drawer is ideal for costume jewelry or specialty necklaces. Additional larger compartments are great for holding pins, charm bracelets or other larger pieces of jewelry.

Small compartments help keep earrings and pins organized. -

The bottom drawer offer compartments to store smaller items like earrings. I shouldn’t hear “I can’t find the matching earring!” ever again. There’s plenty of room for her to keep them all organized!

She'll appreciate having a personalized jewelry box to cherish for years. -

She said she didn’t want a fancy jewelry box but she really took joy in consolidating from “princess” jewelry boxes and the boxes jewelry originally came in into her new personalized jewelry box.

This beautiful jewelry box makes even a shelf look nicer! -

The dresser in her room is too tall to put this on so for now, it’s on the shelf in her closet. Not the most appropriate place but it’s easy for her to reach. She may not realize it now but she’ll appreciate this box for as long as she has it.

If you love this as much as we do, be sure to enter to win one of your own. The winner will be able to select from a variety to find one that fits their personality and decor.
