Jewelry Gift Bags
Gift bags are a classic way to wrap a present. They are a cheap and simple option for your jewelry packaging.
Taking the time to wrap the item in some tissue paper before tucking it into the bag, adds an extra touch.
Jewelry gift bags work well for items that won’t get tangled easily. If you have a dainty necklace that will wrap itself into knots, this may not be the best choice.

Display Cards for Jewelry
If you’re looking for a way to package dainty necklaces or earrings, display cards work really well.
These are pieces of card with holes and slits cut out that will hold the jewelry in place. You can then slip the card into a box or gift bag.
Jewelry Gift Pouches
Another alternative to the standard gift bag is to use a pouch. This is simply a drawstring bag made from various materials including organza and even velvet.
Depending on the fabric choice, these can be a very elegant way to package jewelry.
Within each one of these categories, there are several different styles giving you endless options for jewelry packaging ideas that you can use.
