1. Take Inventory
First, sort your collection—categorizing like with like—to determine how much storage you’ll need.
2. Gather Containers
Search for items throughout your home that can be repurposed as in-drawer dividers, such as egg crates, teacups, or box tops. Use them to supplement store-bought drawer dividers.
3. Divide by Style
Place similar jewels together within each container: Set chunky bracelets in a bowl, hang chandelier earrings over the edge of a cup, and put studs and rings in the smallest compartments. Limit groupings to no more than a few pieces to avoid overcrowding, so you can see all your options at a glance.
4. Layer Up
For drawers deeper than the one at left, use multilevel inserts: Stash in-season items on top and lesser-worn pieces toward the bottom.
