This jewelry box was a treat to myself!! It is beautifully made with rich wood and details. I bought the expresso and it has alittle bit of a mahogany look to it, really lovely. All the compartments are great. It easily holds many earrings, rings, bracelets and necklaces. It is an excellent buy for what you get.
PROS: This jewelry box is very attractive with a great design. It has enough space to hold all my earrings, rings, necklaces etc. and is such an improvement over what I was using before, a jumbled and too-small 2-tier jewelry box. The natural wood grain is a pleasure to look at. The design is not too ornate but rather functional, simple, and attractive. The box weighs a lot, and with proper care, it will wear well. The synthetic, cream-colored lining is attractive and does its job (but doesn't seem as hard-wearing as some jewelry box linings). CONS: The first box I purchased had some minor manufacturing flaws (small nicks/irregularities; wood/varnish torn at hinge of "closet" door), so I sent it back. The second one I ordered also had some small flaws (e.g. tiny scratches on the wood around the keyhole, a pinhead-sized nick on one of the drawers) but it was better than the first one. OVERALL: I'm very satisfied with the box itself, and it is a huge improvement in my jewelry storage. However, it was inconvenient to have to exchange it. It's a shame that these boxes, made with such beautiful materials and a great design, would come with minor damage from the manufacturer. But since they're made by factory workers in China most probably working under the high-pressure conditions, I'm not surprised the product received some minor damage. I don't want people to get in trouble. A similar hand-made box, made by a craftsman in the United States, would easily cost $300+. Overall, I recommend this product. But check for flaws before you throw away the box!

This was a great deal. The workmanship of the jewelry box was amazing compared to what I had seen at the stores. It holds quite a bit of jewelry. I love that most of the drawers have compartments. They do leave 2 drawers with no compartments and that is also a plus.
