Wood Jewelry Box Design Ideas

A wooden jewellery box is a viable gift option for a loved one, as well as being fairly simple and time-efficient to complete. Whether you intend to make one of these boxes for your own personal use, or if you're looking for gift ideas, there are a plethora of options available. Although there are unlimited designs for these boxes, there are a few classic favourites worth a mention.

Secret Compartment

When you open this box, the first thing you see will be a simple box layout with partitions for separating your jewellery. This will look like a basic jewellery box, but underneath will be a hidden storage space. This space is typically revealed by grasping and pulling up on one of the raised edges of the partitions. This area can be used to store your more expensive pieces and even to hold money. This is a very popular and basic design, perfect for those with just a handful of jewellery pieces they’d like to keep hidden.

Armoire Style

This jewellery box is fashioned like a miniature armoire. It has double doors that open to hanging hooks for necklaces and bracelets, and small drawers or pop-out shelves for earrings and rings. The doors can be solid wood or glass depending on your preference. These types can also have hidden compartments in the top for precious jewellery, and some patterns come with built-in ring holders as well. This box is designed to hold everything from your string of pearls to a family heirloom ring.


This box sits upright and is designed like a clothing dresser. There are multiple sliding drawers in the front of the box. These drawers make it easy to organise your jewellery, as well as serve as a safe keeper. Some options even come with mini locks to add to the safety element. This is great for those with a multitude of smaller items, such as stud earrings and rings.


When you open this box it will have mini shelves that pull up and out. These small units allow you to store all of your jewellery in a compact box. This is a very basic design that usually has a felt lined bottom area for larger items, like necklaces and broaches. This box is perfect for children who want a fun box to store their trinkets in, or for an older person who has bigger jewellery.
