Here's a space-saving trick: Opt for an open-face box that you can mount right onto the wall. When a shadow box is unavailable, any well-chosen crate, bin, or orphaned drawer can be retrofitted with a variety of hooks and knobs, turning your earrings and chains into objets d'art. Small decorative bowls perched on the box's lower ledge corral rings, pins, and brooches and complete the charming trinket tableau.
Pegboards are great for organizing just about anything and jewelry is certainly no exception. A piece of pegboard is really cheap and you can use it to create a beautiful jewelry organizer that will hold all of your necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets. Just frame the pegboard (if you want) and then add hooks, cups, small baskets, and anything else that you need to keep that jewelry organized. You can hang necklaces from hooks and use plastic cups or baskets to keep your rings organized. Really, there are so many ways that you can put a pegboard to work keeping things organized.
