This Simple Solution From Amazon Keeps My Necklaces, Earrings, and More Neatly Organized
Although I'm a fairly neat person in most aspects of my life, I have to admit that I'm kind of a mess when it comes to keeping my jewelry organized. I'll put away my earrings and necklaces when I remember, but more often than not, my inattention and laziness causes them to end up in a tangled, chaotic pile that makes finding what I want later on a serious challenge. So when it came time to tell my fiancé what I wanted for the holidays, a decent jewelry holder was at the top of my list.
I was fairly open in terms of color and style, but I knew that I needed a spacious organizer that could hold not just earrings (as is the case for many stands), but also my necklaces, rings, and bracelets, plus miscellaneous items like my watch and extra earring backs. I also didn't want anything that cost a fortune or required a ton of assembly, because despite it being a "present," our money is shared, and I have the handiness of, well, an extremely non-handy person.
Lo and behold, my fiancé delivered, finding me a six-tier jewelry holder from Amazon that meets all my requirements and then some.

The elegant gold stand has a cool hexagonal shape, and it's ideal for keeping my jewelry organized and looking good at all times. There are five long rows for earrings, a sturdy bracelet bar, six top hooks for necklaces or rings, and a sizable wood tray with three individual units to store other items. Everything is spaced out and defined, so there's no chance of pieces getting tangled or lost. Even when I hung my necklaces on the top hooks behind the rows of earrings, they didn't become a giant clump like I feared, but instead stood apart neatly and separately.
Starting at only $33, the stand is fairly inexpensive, and it's super easy to put together, to my great relief (and my fiancé's, let's be honest). I had it built, filled in with all my jewelry, and sitting pretty on my dresser in just 10 minutes without breaking a sweat. And I'm not the only one who's obsessed: Many of the stand's Amazon reviews praise how many pieces it can hold without looking messy, as well as the helpfulness of both its detachable features and additional storage space.
I'm not exaggerating when I say that the holder has totally changed how I get ready each morning, as seeing all my accessories displayed so nicely helps me choose the jewelry that feels most right for that day versus grabbing whatever happens to be most accessible. Plus, I'm getting countless hours back in my life now that I don't have to untangle necklace piles. Gift it to yourself at Amazon.
