The interior of this beautiful jewelry box has ample space for earrings, cufflinks, necklaces, bracelets and watches.

Nogal gives this box a quiet grain pattern and deep, rich colour. The top is accented with Lacewood and Roasted Curly Maple strips, separated and defined by Paduak veneer.

The drawer sides and dividers in the interior are made from solid Black Walnut.

Notice how the interior of the top is finished as beautifully as the exterior. That takes extra time and material .... but, the result is well worth it.

No stains or dyes have been used. The rich colours that you see are the natural colours of the finished woods.
