Best Boxes

…or circular or occasionally oval. When it comes to boxes, shape doesn’t matter and neither does size. I guess it’s nice if they can fit something, but honestly, I just love to look at them. Yes, it’s true. I have a box fetish. Jewelry boxes, hat boxes, gift boxes – even tooth fairy boxes. My latest obsessions are tabletop boxes. That’s right – move over coffee table books! My house guests will have to half-heartedly flip through you another time.

Ceylon et Cie Rock Candy Box: A variety of sizes and gems ensure that these ornate pieces will satisfy both Jewel Snobs and Home Snobs. Inquire at Ceylon et Cie.

C. Wonder Monogram Jewelry Box: Since a jewel collection is so personal, it makes sense to store it in an equally individualized case. At C. Wonder for $78.

Bojay Large Triangle Box: If you think size really does matter, then this is the one for you. And with a smooth wooden interior, it’s just as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside (well, almost!). At Barneys New York for $407 (from $815).

Jay Strongwater Butterfly & Fern Box: Strongwater began his career in jewelry with Oscar de la Renta before moving onto home design, and that background shines through with each hand-set Swarovski. At Neiman Marcus for $425.
