Trinket Treasures – A Review

Keepsake boxes or memory boxes are like treasures in your room waiting to be found and explored by wondering eyes.

It is a delicate diamond that holds fond times through photos or perhaps gifts presented as jewellery that we hold onto to and reminisce of back in the days. You can persevere through a collection of your favorite items and remember the story behind each one.

 

Maybe your mum gifted you that bracelet that always gave you good luck when worn. Or when your best friend presented a lovely pin or key ring that makes you smile when it’s in view.

All these things are indeed cherished memories and better kept in a valuable box of some sort so that you can go back to and have a look again and anytime!

 

Why is this relevant do you think? Well, it actually stimulates long term memory and promotes cognitive functioning.

 

You gain more clarity of stories that have come and gone knowing that there is more yet to be included! It just feels sort of right to have a happy box in your own home and to share with others whenever necessary. Let’s take a look then –

 

Storage Musical Box

Pros

This keepsake box not only sparkles with intrigue and curiosity but plays a sweet melody, ” Swan Lake” when opened with it’s very own spinning ballerina.  It makes for a perfect gift or even sitting in your bedroom shelf or in the living room on top a worktop. When you pull back the box’s lid, there is a mirror on one side along with a compartment space next to that for your rings and small souvenirs.

You can surround the dancing ballerina with any sort of goodies around it and can look very appealing to the eye once decorated.

Cons

This could have been bigger with more storage compartments and available in more colours but overall a fantastic box.

 

Mother Of Pearl Box

This is very appealing and eye-catching and you literally cannot stop staring at this piece of fine art more than anything!

It is handcrafted with “unique Korean traditional mother-of-pearl inlay technique that have lasted for 1,000 years” – It really is a sight for sore eyes with pastel colours and fine detail, a true cherished box!

The width is 12cm, depth is 12cm and the height is 13cm. It has 2 big storage drawers and a true wooden box for many uses as you see fit. Also available in Amazon and great to use for decorating your room with or bringing a sense of serenity in the atmosphere.

Jewelery boxes or memory boxes all come in different forms and shapes, and with these butterfly drawer handles that fall down quite elegantly is an amazing effect and technique to this articulate box!

 

Porcelain jewelled music box

 

Have you heard of Bradford Exchange? They have over 45 years of craftsmanship and experts in collectibles and fine arts. A very creative company that sells many jewellery boxes to collectable coins and plates.

 

A favourite company for buying gifts and treating myself too! The one product that I’d like to share with you all is a beautiful music box filled with jewels with butterflies design and floral art. Light colours of gold, blue and pastel shades reminds you of spring time, when nature is reborn again and a delicate time.

It is 10.2 cm high and makes for an excellent addition to your home and the sight of this handcrafted box, shaped like a teapot perhaps, cam make your space appear more serene and relaxed with the little gems dazzling on the butterfly’s wings and around the edges. I think if anyone is gifted this is very lucky indeed!


I came across Bradford Exchange a few years back when I visited a small art museum, that was in the heart of the city centre.

I came across many antiques and amazing figurines that kept me dazzled the whole day.

 

Ever since then I was on a hunt to collect boxes and trinkets since then and it truly is a great addition to the home and to your world.

It opens a way to view much other creativity that is out there such as portraits or art. Just with a small creative art piece really opens the mind up to so much more and can transform your skills and perspective.

  1. I love keepsake boxes. The one and only one that I have ever had was years ago. Unfornately after years of not opening up the box it never opened again. My keepsake box was more like a puzzle. To open the box I literally had to put my pieces in the right place for it to open. My father brought it back from Saudi Arabia during the war. 

    Anyhow, the memory boxes that you have listed here are beautiful. I always see the musical boxes, especially the one with the ballerina in it. I always see that one in the movies but, I have never seen it in any of my local stores. Do they sell the musical boxes in local stores? I also notice that they come in small sizes. Are there larger ones? And are there any for small girls? Like cartoon character ones?

    • Hello – yes, there are a wide variety of music and jewellery boxes of many shapes and sizes. They really are beautiful keepsakes and always brings joy in anybody’s home, great as a gift too! 

      They should sell some musical boxes in antique stores or even in local charity stores. You can even check the stationary section in supermarkets to view some there  – worth a look:)

  2. I love opening my drawers full of items that gives me great memories as it helps me reminisce back to good friends, family and times in my past. I have been looking everywhere for the perfect storage as I just have so many to keep. You have a lot of great options here as I want to also have something pretty to decorate my desk with, the Porcelain Jewelled Music Box will definitely work well as I love the design of the butterflies and my favourite colour is blue! I just want to ask, how do we trigger the music from the Porcelain Jewelled Music Box? Is it through a wind-up method where we have to spin the trigger around and the music will play for a few seconds? If so, it would be so much fun as it really will bring back even more memories of my favourite music box when I was young!

    Thank you so much for providing me with these awesome choices, the Porcelain Jewelled Music Box is definitely my favourite here!

    • Hi, Yes that box is stunning and if you click on the actual image of the music box you can find out more about it and see alternatives as well. The music plays at the turn of a key and this small but incredible keepsake plays ‘on the wings of love,’ – thanks for your interest:)
