Cute Jewelry Boxes That Aren’t Little Girlish

One of the best presents I've ever received as a little girl was a pink and lilac musical jewelry box with at twirling ballerina inside. (It's kind of like a rite of passage, isn't it?). It served its purpose for my Disney charm bracelets and hand-me-down clip-on earrings then, but now that I'm actually an adult, I need a more respectable carry-all for my precious gems and costume pieces. You know, an upgrade from the cardboard boxes and Ziploc bags that end up in piles in my dresser drawer.

Problem is, a lot of cases look pretty chintzy or aren't very functional (or spacious enough). But I've done a lot of homework, unearthing more than a few posh and sneakily utilitarian jewelry boxes that are almost as precious as the pieces inside.

We could spend hours just playing with all the compartments and detachable cases in this majorly comprehensive jewelry trunk. The designated drawer for watches is especially classy.
