Jewelry display cases are available in a vast range of designs, colors, materials and sizes. Jewelry cases should add to the beauty of jewels exhibited. They should keep the jewelry secure from theft and other kinds of damage. Also, the display need (home, collection, retail outlet) must be kept in mind while choosing a display case or box.
The display case material needs to be strong, with proper security devices likes locks. DG displays have tempered glass, lights and locks for security. If you need to travel with the entire jewelry set then the jewelry display case needs to be compact, light, and portable.
The issue of aesthetics is the next consideration. Antique jewelry and watches or heavy gold and silver jewelry sets look best in wooden display cases that are elegant and have an old world charm. Contemporary minimalist jewelry or Swarovsky pieces harmonize with aluminum and glass/ acrylic displays. Since individual pieces like chains, ear rings and finger rings are small items, they look poor if simply deposited in a large cabinet. Each individual piece needs to be put on a stand, and then the stand can either be put in a showcase or a shelf. Display case stores also retail such stands. The website JewelSupply.com sells necklace cases with a bar for draping necklaces and earring stands shaped like T-bar, tree, or whale fin. Rings are put on finger shaped displays that are then put inside display cabinets.
Most people who own jewelry don't display them permanently. They simply leave open the lid of the jewelry box to allow inspection. People who are not collectors or those who are not retailing jewelry, there is a range of jewelry storage or display boxes available. JewelSupply.com stocks display boxes shaped like crystal and rose and websites like jewelrydisplay.packaging.net have inexpensive contemporary, chic, light display cases and boxes to choose from.
Jewelry is perhaps the most beautiful of all collectibles. An appropriate display case enhances its beauty and a well chosen display or storage box adds value to the precious ornament inside.
