Even if you don't feel like you buy that much jewelry all that often, it's one of those things that seems to accumulate—all those bangles, baubles and bits add up over time, and next thing you know they can't all fit in one tiny jewelry box (besides, even if they do, they all somehow get tangled up in your necklaces anyway).

If you need some storage solutions for all your jewelry, here are some clever ideas broken down by category that you can buy or DIY, and will look great on display too.

Earrings

Store Them on a Stand

This tiny earring stand (it's only 3" by 4" by 3") won't take up much space on your dresser or vanity, but it still packs a punch—it can hold up to 43 pairs of earrings. Get it at Urban Outfitters for $19.

DIY an Organizer from a Fancy Frame

Have an old decorative picture frame lying around? Add some chicken wire and you can create an easy—and totally stunning—holder for all your favorite dangly earrings. Get the instructions at Kiku Corner.

Hang Them from Individual Tags

An easy way to use your wall space to keep your earrings organized? Hang all your earrings on individual shipping tags like RICEdesigns did here, then string them up from wooden dowels. It's a simple solution, but it looks totally organized and beautiful.

String Them Up on a Chain

Another easy wall option: hang a chain across the wall, then hang your earrings through the links. It's super-easy organizing that can also double as decor. Get the instructions at Cleverly Inspired.

Necklaces

Create a Stand with Copper Pipes

A copper stand like the one above will fit perfectly on your dresser and will keep your necklaces from tangling up and put them on display. Putting it together seems simple, too—get the instructions at A Joyful Riot.

Create a Decorative Necklace Branch

All you need to make this tree branch jewelry display from FashionEdible is a medium-sized branch, twine and spray paint. It works particularly well for necklaces, but depending on the branch you use, you can also hang rings, earrings and bracelets as pictured above.

Do Double-Duty with a Mirror

This combination mirror and necklace hanger will keep all your necklaces in one, tangle-free spot and look great on your wall. It has over 10 hooks and can hold bracelets and other jewelry as well. Get it at Urban Outfitters for $29.

Bracelets

DIY a Jewelry Box

Lay out watches, bracelets, bangles and cuffs neatly by upcycling a box and storing them on DIY bracelet rolls, like Craft A Doodle Doo did in the example above. It works well for putting them on display or storing them away neatly, whichever you prefer.

Place Them on a Concrete Display

This stylish concrete diamond-shaped bracelet stand only measures 3.5 inches high, so it won't take up too much space—it's the perfect place to stack small cuffs and bangles. Get it from LeCimenteBleu on Etsy for $12.

Stack Them on Decorative Vases

If you have small vases or other decorative glasses lying around that you don't otherwise use, repurpose them into bracelet stands. That's exactly what Craft-o-Maniac did with these milk glass vases, and bracelets and bangles fit perfectly.

Rings

Create a Custom Display

For easy organization that can be stored away or put on display, try making a DIY display case like Tea Rose Home did here. Bonus: this was made out of dollar store finds, so it'll be inexpensive to recreate.

DIY Your Own Ceramic Ring Cones

To get even craftier, you can make your own custom ceramic ring cones like the ones above from Almost Makes Perfect. If ceramics aren't in your wheelhouse, for another alternative try making color-blocked wooden ring cones instead—get the instructions at Cupcakes and Cashmere.

Lend Yourself a Hand (Literally)

Is your aesthetic on the edgy side? Store your favorite rings on a skeleton hand—Mr. Kate made this one with a skeleton hand from a Halloween store and a little gold spray paint. It looks creepy cool and it totally works for displaying your baubles.

Repurpose a Ceramic Egg Tray

A ceramic egg tray is actually the perfect ring storage, according to I Heart Organizing—the egg-shaped divots are the perfect size for rings (and pins—and even necklaces, bracelets and earrings depending on their size). Seriously, it looks like it was made to hold jewelry.
