Jewelry Armoires Buying Guide

Jewelry storage is an inevitable need in the bedroom. Often it's in the form of a small box that sits on the dresser or night table. But many people need the additional room a jewelry armoire provides. These miniature armoires are typically freestanding pieces with numerous shallow drawers.

Types of Jewelry Armoires

There are several size categories for jewelry armoires; the one you choose depends on how large your collection is and how much space you have for the piece. They all incorporate felt linings to gently hold and display jewelry, as well as a mirror to check out how it looks.

Wall Units

These shallow pieces mount to the wall and resemble a medicine chest. They contain drawers, hooks, and usually a mirror on the back of a swing-out door.

Dresser-Top Units

Armoires meant to sit on top of a dresser, desk, or vanity are 20-30 inches tall. They contain a vertical stack of shallow drawers, as well as swing-out doors to hang necklaces. There may also be ring trays. The top often flips up to reveal a mirror.

Floor Units

Freestanding armoires reach about 48 inches tall, so that the mirror in the top of the piece will frame the face of the average-height woman. These pieces may extend all the way to the floor, or they may be elevated on long, skinny legs. They contain the same storage features, including drawers for bracelets, hooks for necklaces, pincushions, earring holes, and ring pads. They also may offer additional storage for accessories such as scarves.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Keep these things in mind when shopping for a jewelry armoire.


Evaluate your bedroom to determine if you have room for a jewelry armoire. If the armoire will be on display, you'll want to pick one that is in keeping with the style of your other bedroom furniture. Next, take an inventory of your jewelry to be sure you are buying one with enough of the compartments you need, such as drawers for bracelets or hooks for necklaces.


Jewelry armoires typically have mirrors inside the doors or a mirror that pops up from the top. Some have perimeter lights to illuminate your face. Others have lights inside the storage compartments to illuminate the collection and make identifying pieces easier.

Security Features

Some manufacturers take safety and security into account when designing armoires. Features include locks on the doors or individual drawers and hidden compartments within the piece. Sometimes the armoire is camouflaged to look like a different, ordinary piece of furniture that wouldn't contain valuables, such as a standing mirror.
