What You Should Look for in a Jewelry Box for Sale

Finding a jewelry box for sale is not hard. All you have to do is type those words into the search bar and you will be bombarded with a plethora of jewelry boxes that will make your head spin.

Now, being at J Devlin Glass Art, you happen to be in the right place, even on the internet, to find some of the finest jewelry boxes available. That’s good and well for you, but let’s just say you have stumbled upon us by accident or you’re not sure what to look for.

Aesthetically, there might not appear to be too much going on in the design and construction of a jewelry box, but if you peel back the layers you will see that there is a lot more than goes into quality that meets the eye. This is especially true given the abbreviation of most first impressions, but if that weren’t enough, we’re going to lend you some insight into what makes our jewelry boxes, and all of our other glass art, so very different from the competition.

High-Quality Stained Glass

We pay such fine attention to all of the glass art that we produce that we would like to think it’s effectively impossible to highlight one particular component of our glass art that makes it distinguishable from the competition. This may be true, but for the sake of argument, if we had to pick one feature that stood above all of the rest, we would pick the process we use to produce our stained glass.

That’s because whereas most of the modern producers out there have fallen prey to the allure of cheaper processes, we still use the Tiffany method that quality manufacturers have been using for well over 100 years at this point. This method was developed by Louis Comfort Tiffany in the 1800s, and it has stood the test of time. No other method has been proven superior in all of the time that has passed since then.

This process involves introducing metals and pigments into the glass while the glass is still being worked, and unlike less effective modern methods, produces stained glass with a rich luster that cannot be matched. In addition to the depth of its color, this method is superior if only for the fact that it will never alter or fade.

Because the pigments used are stable and are introduced when the glass is being shaped, the glass will never change color, weaken in luster or fade. In other words, Tiffany-method stained glass that was produced one hundred years ago is still as vibrant as the day it was made when it is cleaned and polished. In fact, that is one of the ways to identify is, by its interaction with the light.

As this glass will never fade, it is far more valuable than glass produced according to other methods, but it is also much more covetous if only for its pleasing aesthetics. In addition to the fact that its character is unchanging, Tiffany-method glass sometimes seems to change its character based on the light with which it is iterating.

That means that depending on the ambient light or the angle at which you view a piece of Tiffany method stained glass, it can appear to shift color. Some pieces are pearlescent, opalescent, or iridescent, and many of them will only appear so under a very specific influence of light. There are some pieces that appear to change color depending on the lighting to which you expose them. Artificial electric light and natural light like sunlight and moonlight will all cast their own influences on one single piece of glass art from our collection.

Of course, there is only limited merit in wasting speech on it. We could extol the virtue of such beauty, but it is a thing best experienced and second-best read about. Take a look through our collection and get familiar with one of our jewelry boxes; take it home and you will be able to see firsthand what we mean.

Yet, as critical as this is to quality, and even if it is the single most important feature of our jewelry boxes, there are many other aspects of our quality that set our glass art apart from the rest. Tiffany method stained glass is just the tip of the iceberg.

High-Quality Furniture

In addition to the high-quality glass from which we craft our jewelry boxes and other glass art, we make it a habit to ensure they are handcrafted with unique, durable, and otherwise high-quality furniture as well.

Whether it is the latch that secures a jewelry box or it is used to create the feet of a standing box, you will find that the metalwork of our jewelry boxes is without comparison. It is reliable, sturdy, and best of all, aesthetically pleasing. Even the hinges we used with our boxes are secure and tight. Some of our jewelry boxes contain an added safeguard in the form of a chain that prevents the box from opening too far and putting a strain on the hinges.

That’s the practical aspect of the furniture we include as part and parcel of the construction of glass art like our jewelry boxes, but there is another element to it on top of the useful part. Our lead-free solder scrollwork from which some of our furniture is crafted is also carefully and precisely arranged in such a fashion that it will lend itself to the overall aesthetic of the design.

Check out our collection where you will find many unique examples of a jewelry box for sale, of which there will be even more to impress your sense of artistic beauty. Some of our boxes are understated and demure, with simple solder beadwork, whereas others are attractively and elaborately paned and beveled, with beautiful scrollwork that is not unlike filigree.

It’s just one more thing we add into the mix of our jewelry boxes on top of the process by which we produce the glass, and yet there is more to consider when shopping.

A Unique Design

Another thing that some shoppers might want to look for in a jewelry box for sale is a unique design. Granted, there are occasions where a classic design will be all you really wanted to find, but every once in a while a unique look is refreshing.

Now, we don’t mean that we’re creating marvels of Euclidean geometry with our jewelry boxes, but we do create unique looks that you will not find elsewhere, even through an assiduous search.

In our collection of jewelry boxes, you can find pieces that are so unassuming that they appear to be rippled or striated clear glass until you get familiar enough with them to recognize just a hint of iridescence.

There are other boxes that contain uniquely arranged panels of colored glass that are designed to catch the light admirably and bend it to the errant will of a location’s ambiance. There are others that diverge from the classic look of a rectangular box, and some of them are fairly large.

Plus, if you are looking for a decorative glass box, we have many in our collection. They might not be jewelry boxes, necessarily, but if your intention is accentuation and not function, you will find many of them more than fitting for decorating a setting.

The point here is that we offer many different designs to speak to a number of tastes and moods. The only way to learn more about them is to get investigating, though, and we would love for you to do so.

Attention to Detail

Another thing you should look for and you will find represented in our collection is an uncommon level of attention to detail. If we have failed to give you the impression so far, then let us drive home the point at the present. All of our jewelry boxes, and all of our glass art, in fact, is not only created with a fine and unexampled measure of attention to detail. Our glass art is also entirely handcrafted and all of the items we offer are unique to our shop.

That means they are created especially for us and cannot be found anywhere else. Handcrafted jewelry organizers and jewelry cases, like all things handmade, will have a craftsman’s eyes on them throughout the process of production. This accounts, among other things, for quality control and a finely finished product.

You need to look no further than through a few pages of our glass art before this dedication to quality will become apparent, and that is something we would welcome you to do. The more you learn about how we do what we do, the more you will learn to pick up on the little things that engender quality in our glass art.

A Sense of What’s Appropriate

One more thing you should keep in mind is that we theme a lot of the gifts that you can find on our website according to their fitness for a given occasion. In particular, we like to exalt the most important moments in life with special, handcrafted items that will appreciate in value over time.

For example, we offer plenty of jewelry boxes, photo frames, and ornaments that are intended to be given as mementos in observation or commemoration of weddings, anniversaries, confirmations and communions, baptisms, births, and more. These are some of the most important celebrations that a person can experience through life, and therefore giving a truly special, truly unique gift in celebration of them matters all the more.

It is not only our jewelry boxes for sale but also our other gifts that are designed and intended to serve as unique and wonderful gifts for these occasions. Whether you have someone special and near to you about to celebrate a 10 year anniversary, a loved one is anticipating the coming of a child, or you just want to give someone in your life a unique place to store earrings, bracelets, and other jewelry, we have plenty that will fit the bill.

A Diversity of Appeal

Finally, keep in mind that among our many unique designs there is something to appeal to people of all different types of tastes. Are you looking for something understated and simplistic with just a touch of color? Or perhaps you are looking for something large, bright, ornately decorated, and heavily saturated with hues.

Between two hypothetical options like these there are a ton of different choices you could make and the more you discover the more you will realize that each is better than the last. Still, in order to discover those that are most fitting to your tastes, you have to get in touch with them, and you can only do so with a little shopping.

What Else Do We Provide?

These are the features you should look for in a jewelry box for sale, and without a doubt, they are the definitive features of our jewelry boxes here at J Devlin Glass Art. However, there are a few other value-added bonuses we add into the deal.

For one, we offer free shipping on all of our orders, so the price you see is the price you pay. Oftentimes, fragile glass art like what we offer racks up some exorbitant prices in shipping in order to keep them safe, but we don’t incur that on our customers.

On that note, all orders are deliberately and carefully packaged before shipping in order to ensure they are safe and secure during transit and arrive at you with the same luster with which we sent them out, and in one piece.

You’re only a few steps away from discovering a special gift to give of which you can be really proud, but to find it you will need to do a little searching. Check out our collections today, and if you want to learn more about our specific products or processes, you can direct any questions you have to our team at 844-772-2145.
