A JEWEL OF A BOX

As a child, I had a special jewelry box that I loved. It was one of those boxes that contained a delicate little twirling ballerina. When the lid was lifted, the ballerina, dressed in her sparkly tulle tutu, would pop up and start spinning to the music. I kept all of my junky little plastic rings and a goldtone locket in there for safe-keeping. While I still don't own a lot of fancy jewelry, I do dig this totally feminine and classic jewelry box by Smythson. Isn't it beautiful? It would look great just sitting there, minus any exciting contents (it's tres expensive, and I have a strange penchant for colored boxes, even if they're just cardboard!)

This is really beautiful! I had something similar as a girl, with a twirling ballerina also. Mine was covered in a lighter shade of pink, faux leather. :)

You should see my daughter's jewelry box...(es) she has some shaped like stars for beads and baubles, and one with a tutu clad diva, another pink box from a local shop and never enough plastic rings and things.

Looks like we all had the same jewel box. I loved the ballerina! This one would be a dream. Another entry for the wish-list.

Oh my it is so gorgeous. I love that color too. But it's out of my price range, so I'll admire it from afar.

I had a little box too growing up with the twirling ballerina. Mine was a lavender color. This one is pretty and would be a beautiful backdrop for a lot of shiny bling. Enjoy! xoxo

Me too, and I still have several boxes. Attempts at consolidation have failed. I think the contents of the box are not willing to move to another home. I would so love to have a pink box. I will check this out.

Yes all of us little girls had the similar ballerina jewelry box! I love this one though!

Jacqueline said...

It looks as if everyone of us girls had a jewellery box with a ballerina that we kept our 'jewels' in.I'm not a big jewellery person but jewellery boxes do tempt us to know what's inside and that is a particularly nice one.

I love boxes, and also remember the pop up ballerina. How fun.

Best,
Michelle

I always wanted a ballerina box! This is the perfect grown-up version.

I loved my little ballerina jewelry box growing up! What a wonderful trip down memory lane you've inspired...

Linda/"Mom" said...

* Gee, I hope I don't sound too critical (or "whatever!"). but, I looked at their website... Am I wrong to think they should at least SPELL "jewelry" correctly, ESPECIALLY if the prices for what they sell are that high????

...Or, is there SOMETHING I'm MISSING here? HELP, plz!

Thanks!
