Antique Jewelry Boxes

As aesthetically rewarding as jewelry is, history shows us that our heirlooms’ resting place can also be pleasing to the eyes and can even be considered heirlooms themselves.  The use of a jewelry box, also known as a jewelry casket, wasn’t only meant for fine jewels and ornaments, but also served as a storage point for other artifacts and important documents.

Historical caskets ranged from modest designs that were covered in leather and lined with satin to more elegant forms that incorporated gold, silver, and ivory.

As time went on, Jewelry boxes became more obtainable and varied in design due to mass production and international trade. Pictured in this post is an Etsy collection of some of my favorite antique jewelry boxes.
