How to store earrings

Earrings are one of the most pernickety pieces of jewellery to store – there’s perhaps nothing worse than losing a brand new pair of earrings that you have just bought. Or, it may be the case, that you want to preserve a pair of earrings you’ve had for a long time, and want to stop them getting tangled with the rest of your jewellery. Whether you’re putting away sparkly studs or keeping your shiny new hoops organised, our guide will help you keep your earrings safe and sound.

Earring storage ideas

1. Buttons

Who knew a plain old button could be multi-functional? When storing studs, buttons are the perfect solution – all you have to do is pierce the earrings through the buttonholes and secure them with the earring back on the other side. Et, voila!

This method works best if you would only like to store a few pairs of earrings, as finding spare buttons can be a little bit of a challenge. This also works well if you would like to organise your jewellery box, as using buttons is a good way of preventing pairs of earrings from getting separated.

2. Bowl collection

If you’re looking for a decorative way to store your earrings, then using mini bowls or small dishes is a great choice – with this method, you are able to store both studs and larger hoops. A small bowl collection is perfect for those who are looking for a more decorative way to store jewellery, as these mini ceramics are enough to add a dash of glamour to any vanity table. You can shop mini bowls from a wide range of stores and find the perfect home for your earrings.

3. DIY Earring stud box

The DIY Earring stud box is the perfect choice for those who want to add their own splash of creativity to their storage. Making an earring stud box is easy, all you need is:

  • A shallow wooden box
  • Felt
  • Dowels
  • Glue

How to create an earring stud box

  1. Firstly, decorate your wooden box – you can use acrylic paints, gems or maybe even wallpaper.
  2. After your box has been customised, you can then wrap the dowels in felt – gradually increasing the layers until the dowels are cushioned completely by felt.
  3. Finally, to secure the dowels you will want to glue them down to the bottom of the box. After the glue has dried, you can then store your stud earrings in your brand-new jewellery box.

This earring storage method is perhaps more sentimental than the others, as you can take time to craft your own jewellery box and make it extra special.

4. Stationary draws

If you are looking for a more practical way to store earrings without the DIY, then purchasing a set of mini stationary draws is the way to go. Many stationary draws are made from a clear plastic material, therefore it’s really easy to see all your earrings before even opening the draws. This also works really well for dangly earrings, as there is more space than a conventional jewellery box.

5. Earring stands

Earring stands are a great way to store earrings as they are multipurpose – they can be both decorative and organisational, and they also come in various forms. You can opt for a practical earring stand which can hold a vast number of earrings at the same time, or you can go for a more ornamental stand which holds only a few earrings – but makes a beautiful display on the vanity.
