Jewelry and accessories refer to raw materials and semi-finished products made of gemstones and precious metals, as well as wearable accessories, decorative crafts, and art collectibles made from these materials. For valuable products like jewelry and accessories, many jewelry merchants carefully consider the choice of materials when making jewelry boxes. What materials are better for making jewelry boxes?
The structure of a jewelry box consists of an outer layer and an inner layer, and the materials for the body of the jewelry box typically include wood, plastic, and paper.
Wooden jewelry boxes can be made of either medium-density fiberboard (MDF) or solid wood. Solid wood options include various types such as mahogany jewelry boxes, pine jewelry boxes, oak jewelry boxes, peach core wood jewelry boxes, and ebony jewelry boxes. Among them, zhoumu (Chinese parasol tree) wooden products have unique features. Medium-density fiberboard, also known as synthetic board, compressed board, fiberboard, or engineered wood, is often used in making wooden jewelry boxes due to the complexity and labor-intensive nature of working with solid wood. The surface is typically covered with a veneer of real wood, resulting in a finished product that closely resembles solid wood. While solid wood is more expensive than MDF, the difference in the final product’s appearance and quality is minimal. Wooden jewelry boxes exude a vintage and elegant aesthetic. They are suitable for storing valuable jewelry items such as gemstones and possess high collectible value, making them quite valuable.
2. Plastic (Resin)
Plastic jewelry boxes are typically made of materials such as PPC, PVC, PET/APET. These materials undergo a series of processing steps including printing, die-cutting, and box assembly to create the final product. Compared to traditional paper and other packaging options, plastic boxes (excluding PVC material) offer advantages such as being environmentally friendly, non-toxic, high transparency, and providing a more vivid display of the packaged products. This can effectively enhance the product packaging presentation. Moreover, these boxes are relatively inexpensive, making them commonly used in silver jewelry stores.
Paper jewelry boxes are primarily made of cardboard, offering moderate hardness and cost-effectiveness. They are suitable for packaging less expensive jewelry. Paper boxes are also considered environmentally friendly。
The outer layer of jewelry boxes primarily includes materials such as leather, paper, and velvet. For the inner layer of jewelry boxes, soft-textured materials are typically chosen for lining. These linings contain anti-oxidation and wear-resistant fibers to prevent jewelry wear. The boxes often feature a corresponding style of key or combination lock for added security. Common materials used for the inner lining include velvet, sponge, and other soft and comfortable materials
