Buttons

All those spare buttons that came with your new clothing purchases can be used for storing your jewellery. Keep earrings in organised sets by putting them through the holes of a button, and then fastening them.

Ziplock bags

You can get these in bulk and a whole range of sizes for a couple of dollars at Daiso. Great for organising intricate pieces and also keeping air away from costume jewellery (this will prevent metals from getting tarnished).

Pill boxes

Those seven-day pill boxes with separated compartments are perfect for storing small jewellery pieces like rings and earrings. You can even organise your jewellery by the day on which you’d like to wear specific pieces — joy for those with an OCD.

Cling wrap

Sandwich your statement necklaces between two pieces of cling wrap — this will keep them separate and scratch-free.

Transporting jewellery overseas is often a tricky business. If you’ve ever had to spend half an hour untangling a knotted clump of necklaces, you’d know that it pays to devote some care to packing those jewellery pieces. 

You don’t even need to invest in a jewellery roll — above are household items that can do the job at little or no cost and work 10 times better.
