Jewelry boxes are a part of the highly important essentials any person with jewelry owns. It does matter what the box looks like on the outside. It is a rare person who does not like to receive a beautifully wrapped gift. The same goes for the boxes that hold your jewelry collections. Consider selecting just the right box to hold those lovely jewelry pieces for yourself or someone else. The gesture will help prove just how much you cherish those jewelry gifts given to you if you are the one purchasing the box for jewelry gifts given you by someone else.
It is a good idea to invest in a “wood” jewelry box. Wood jewelry boxes are more durable and will last longer. Go even further and try to get one extra unique handmade, a box that he or she will not find any other place except through you. It is sure to be a cherished treasure just as the contents will be.
If you cannot find a wood jewelry box handmade or you cannot have one custom made, all is not lost. There are plenty of retailers who carry wood jewelry boxes. These wood boxes will be a little more expensive than boxes made out of other materials. Begin your search for just the right wood jewelry box with comparison shopping to find the best deal. You will save time and money as you might find a box at a much less price that you like. Don’t buy the first one you see. There are 100’s of designs of wooden jewelry boxes in a wide range of prices.
Maybe you just don’t like a wooden jewelry box even though I am saying it is probably the best choice. That is a lot of my own personal opinion. What I like about a wood jewelry box the most is the fact that some of them can be re-decorated or re-painted as time goes on making an old box look like a new box or with changes of colors in the room. Many people choose fabric jewelry boxes instead of the wooden boxes. Fabric boxes are typically less in price than a well made wood jewelry box. Some of these fabric jewelry boxes are quite elegant looking.
A well made fabric box lined in velvet can be strikingly beautiful to hold and display jewelry collections. Of course you can also line a wood box with velvet material for an even more strikingly beautiful jewelry box. Fabric boxes are popular worldwide for many women. As always, check to see what your recipient of the box prefers if you are not purchasing the box for yourself.

Virginia is a pair of dangle earrings I added to Carmilita’s Christmas Collection of dangle earrings. She dangles beautifully in a cascade of what looks like different colors of Christmas lights or bells. I placed individual 6 mm round Swarovski glass beads onto 5 mm jump rings for a total of 16 sparkling glass beads (2 beads to each individual drop) in a variety of colors creating a gorgeous cascade drop earring. Colors are a mix of gold, crystal white, Christmas green, Christmas red and a sea blue. Laying down flat she looks somewhat like a star design, in a dangle she also sort of resembles a Christmas decorated in traditional Christmas colored lights or bells.
I named this pair of dangle earrings Virginia in honor of the character who played in the Christmas movie:”There is a Santa Claus.”
If you have a child in which you wish to teach the stories of Santa Claus, this may be a symbol you can always use to help illustrate this story to her, or any kind of Christmas story about the beautiful lights, bells and trees we use to celebrate a traditional Christmas. These earrings would certainly make a great conversation piece.
They are suitable for Holiday gift giving.
They are very suitable to wear for Christmas parties, and get together s for exchange of gifts and food as well as to wear for a New Year Eve’s Party. They definitely say: “holiday celebration time.”
They shine forth a joyful and happy look as they dangle so freely about 1 1/2 inch from the main hook.
2 antique bronze French earring hooks
7 antique bronze jump rings 5 mm
16 round glass sparkling Swarovski beads
Virginia’s Price is $15 (includes shipping)
