Music Jewelry Boxes - Buyers Guide




By Tanya Turner

Are you looking for a unique and beautiful gift? A music jewelry box might be just the right thing. These are just like the ordinary jewelry boxes, except when you open its lid, a beautiful tune plays. Find out what different types of music jewelry boxes exist and what to look for when buying a really unique box.

Popular music jewelry box designs

There is no standard design for a music jewelry box. Majority of these boxes are wooden music boxes, with the decorated lid. You can also find music boxes made of stained glass and other materials. Wooden jewelry boxes are usually made of pine, elm or burl-walnut. The top can be plain, but usually it is decorated with decals, fabric or tassels.

Very elegant are music jewelry boxes with hand painted and hand inlaid lids. These can be pricey, but they are well worth it. Floral inlays are the most popular. The surface of the wood can be matt-finish or gloss-finish. Most beautiful inlaid music jewelry boxes come from Germany and Italy. For example Reuge music boxes are of exceptional quality.

Another option is a music jewelry box, where you can insert a photo in the lid. This style makes your box very personal and can make an exceptional gift. These music boxes are also cheaper than inlayed ones.

The inside of your jewelry box is also important. It is usually lined in a soft velvet or silk. Some boxes have special holders for your rings, earrings and bracelets. If you have a lot of jewelry, look for boxes with several draws.

Finding the tune you like

Sometimes it is very frustrating - you have found the most beautiful music box that you fall in love with, but you don't care for the tune it plays. What can you do? If you found your box in online shop ask if it is possible to select a different tune. Many stores would agree, even though it would cost you extra. Some music box retailers let you select custom tunes from the list they provide. Look for shops that allow you to customize the music your box plays.

Where to look for your jewelry music box?

It is unlikely that any of your local shops or department stores will have a good selection of quality music boxes. Your best bet is to look online. There are many online stores that specialize on music boxes or all kinds or jewelry boxes.

Two other options are Amazon and Ebay. Amazon offers medium priced jewelry music boxes that can be excellent gifts. And on Ebay you can find hundreds of jewelry boxes, in all imaginable designs. Buying on Ebay can be a bit tricky, because sometimes sellers offer brand new items, while sometimes they sell used boxes in good condition. Make sure you pay attention to the item description.

Ebay is also an excellent place to look for antique music jewelry boxes. Sometimes you can find really valuable vintage boxes there, at a reasonable price.
