But as an accent furniture piece, jewelry armoires are beautifully rendered, often with hand-painted finishes that make them unique, so you will want to match it in style and color to the other furnishings in your bedroom. Jewelry armoires are designed to store and protect your jewelry. Typically, they have a number of stacked,lined, drawers intended for rings, bracelets, etc. and side doors complete with hooks for hanging necklaces. Because they are available in a wide range of styles, sizes and features, it’s good to have some idea of what you need and want in a jewelry armoire before you go shopping.

Jewelry Armoire Size

While a jewelry armoire is generally narrower than a nightstand and smaller than a standard chest of drawers, it will take up space in your bedroom. Measure the area where you want it to go; this will give you some idea of how much room you have. Also leave some room for opening doors and drawers and/or lifting lids.

You will also want to select the size of the jewelry armoire to match the size and type of your jewelry collection. For example, if you have more rings and bracelets than you do necklaces and chains, then a small to mid-sized jewelry armoire with several drawers will be more useful to you than a large one with side doors for hanging necklaces.
