Consider placing studier pieces of jewellery such as rings and earrings in a teacup which is the same height as the drawer, and then storing the teacup in the drawer. Use more than one teacup if you want to store a large number of studier pieces of jewellery. Be sure to categorise the jewellery items and then store them accordingly. For instance, it would be a good idea to keep all your rings in one teacup, all the bracelets in another teacup, all the earrings in a third teacup, and so on. This will make it easier for you to find certain pieces of jewellery quickly and the chances of losing a piece will be reduced dramatically.
If the jewellery pieces you are going to store in the drawer are very delicate, consider using cloth bags instead of teacups. For instance, pearls and any type of gemstone should be kept in cloth bags. Similarly, cloth bags effectively prevent silver from being tarnished. As was the case with teacups, use multiple cloth bags and avoid filling them to the maximum level. If you have only a few delicate pieces of jewellery, purchase only one cloth bag that has more than one pouch in it.
Although it is best to use a necklace holder for storing necklaces and chains, you will need to use a piece of soft cloth if using a necklace holder is not possible for some reason. To make it easier to get to a particular necklace or chain when desired, use one piece of cloth per necklace or chain. This will effectively prevent the chains and necklaces from getting tangled.
