Real Review of Stackers London UK Glass Beveled White Jewellery Boxes (Unbiased, Unsponsored Blogger Opinion)

Unsponsored, unbiased review .. for real!

No one sent me these for free, I paid for them out of my own pocket to the tune of $271.88 (that includes the $70 SHIPPING AND DUTIES CHARGE from The Container Store to Canada), and bought one Stackers Lid, and 4 Stackers in 13-Compartments because I only wanted it for a specific purpose.

Where to buy it in Canada

Certainly not anywhere IN Canadian stores, I can tell you that much.

I thought they would be cheaper secondhand but no luck, and also finding exactly what I wanted with 4 ring compartment trays in good condition? Highly unlikely.

I tried eBay, and they do sell them on there, but the shipping is outrageous and the price is ABOUT the same as if you go through the Stackers site themselves where you can choose every colour you want, or through The Container Store.

Please note, if you are from Canada, you cannot buy from the Stackers site directly (they seem to ship to most major countries excluding Canada), but you can buy it from The Container Store using Borderfree (included in the purchase), however you would be remiss if you didn’t also use Rakuten to get a 1.5% cashback (my referral link is here and you must click on it!) on this rather expensive purchase:

I went through The Container Store, practically cried when I saw the $70 shipping + customs duties charge, and gritted my teeth to click: Purchase.

I did sign up for their POP rewards to get 15% off, so there was that. It’s still something you know, $30-ish dollars.

PAID: $271.88

In total, all duties, shipping, taxes, for 4 trays and a topper.

VIDEO REVIEW (includes going through all of my jewellery in the trays)

You can watch the entire video here of the box including my jewellery pieces and trays in detail, but the details, trays and so on (specifications and measurements) are all in this post.

WHITE GLOSSY GLASS BEVELED EDGE

I chose this one:

This is what it looks like in the photos.

Part of our premier Stackers jewelry box collection, our glass sectioned Stackers are an elegant way to organize favorite pieces on a dressertop or vanity. Soft, lined interiors give you multiple compartments for rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces and chains. The sleek exterior is made of opaque glass so it beautifully combines with our other glass Stacker designs. A must for serious jewelry collectors, these make thoughtful gifts for anyone with a love of style.

  • Glass exterior with MDF (medium-density fiberboard) frame
  • UV-protected color stays true white
  • Lined interior
  • Stackable and modular

They do have other options that come in VERY appealing colours like Taupe, Blush, Mink and even Faux Vegan Navy Croc, but once I saw this GLASS covered beveled edge option in pristine white, I was a goner.

So… that said:

WHITE GLOSSY BEVELED EDGES ARE A DIFFERENT SIZE (SMALLER) & MORE EXPENSIVE TOO

It’s also 25% more expensive, more or less and it is NOT an option on the Stackers UK site, it is only an option at The Container Store. I suspect it is old stock and they’re trying to get rid of it at The Container Store, as they no longer make it (too expensive?) and I don’t see it on their site.

At the time of this post, the lid was selling for $52.58 CAD each and the similar-size white one (actually it’s still larger), is selling for $39.43 CAD for a $13.09 CAD difference or 24.89% difference:

This is the full range of what they offered in the white glossy glass bevel edged items:

 

As you can see the cheaper option is vegan white leather has a wide range with different trays:

 

THE RANGE IS ALSO SMALLER

The white glossy beveled edges also doesn’t come in as many options in terms of trays, and the sizing is totally different. But let’s ignore all that for now and look at what they currently do sell as classic staples:

COLOURS

Out of all the colours, these appealed to me the most, and it’s all vegan leather:

BLUSH

TAUPE

MINK (a darker taupe)

NAVY CROC

WHY I CHOSE WHITE GLOSS BEVEL EDGE

  • Easier to clean (glass)
  • White goes with everything – I have white bookcases & will have a white as my main theme in my future closet
  • Looks extremely chic and glossy with the beveled glass edge rather than being flat

Even though it’s more expensive, the sizes are different, I still decided on it.

The white gloss bevel edge is 11-7/8″ x 5-3/4″ x 1-1/2″ h and the white vegan leather one is 9-7/8″ x 7-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ h

The white gloss bevel edge is more like a rectangle, and the vegan leather ones are more square-ish.

SIZING

So, they come in 4 sizes:

  • Mini 7-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ x 1-3/4″ h
  • Classic 9-7/8″ x 7-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ h
  • Supersize  14-1/4″ x 10″ x 1-5/8″ h
  • The White Beveled Edge Size 11-7/8″ x 5-3/4″ x 1-1/2″ h

They also come with different stacking tray options you can mix & match for the classics, that are different.

SIZING OF THE TRAYS

You can see that with 4 trays and a topper, you can see the size of it against an iPad mini 4 in a rugged case:

And on top, it’s about the same size as well:

And in my closet in a Billy Bookcase, you can see it isn’t taking up the entire shelf and fits nicely in there – my video below, shows more info.

At the end of the post, I also give the INNER tray option measurements.

TRAY OPTIONS

For the white beveled gloss edge jewellery trays, these are the options:

These are the compartments for the lid to the left, showing some ring compartments, and areas for longer brooches and so on:

 

I took this tray with 4 large squares and the smaller squares, four times so I would have 13 compartments x 4 to be able to put necklaces that are delicate, and delicate rings as well.

 

 

You can also buy that watch roll and add it in the compartment above

REAL SHOTS

They came in these boxes, very well packaged with foam corners:

The inside of the top cover tray:

 

The inside of the box trays for rings and so on:

 

Stacked, they look like this:

And the inside of each:

And all the pieces are great in there. No more tangling!

Love it. <3

Now for the nitty gritty details I wish people had given me online:

INTERIOR / INNER MEASUREMENTS OF EACH COMPARTMENT

THE TOPPER BOX WITH THE LID

Height / Depth of all = 2.5 cm

 

Top rectangle squares nearest to the hinge lid

  • Length = 14 cm
  • Width = 5 cm

Middle super long rectangular compartment

  • Length = 28.5 cm
  • Width = 2.5 cm

Compartments on either side of ring section:

  • Length = 9 cm
  • Width = 4.75 cm

Ring section:

  • Length = 9 cm
  • Width = 5 cm

MEASUREMENTS OF RING/JEWELLERY TRAY

Depth of all = 2.5 cm

One of the 4 Larger squares

  • Length = 6.5 cm
  • Width = 6.5 cm

One of the 9 Smaller squares

  • Length = 4 cm
  • Width = 4 cm

And the entire jewellery box is gorgeous. I’d say for the price, the quality is good. You may want to try cheaper options but I am of the philosophy that you buy once, buy the best, and don’t bother with substitutes because you’ll just be disappointed.

Here are some other options that look nice as well:

Lastly, here it is in action in case you missed it above:

    I guess you would say that I’m a minimalist when it.comes to jewelry. I can’t even remember the last time I bought or received jewelry as a gift. I saw this post and fell instantly in love! It’s not the young adult wooden jewelry box that I had for decades. It’s simple and sophisticated. My husband thanks you for this post because I’m next to impossible to buy for Christmas.

      GASP!!! I AM SO HAPPY. I had the same reaction when I saw it, and I knew it would be perfect for me as I like to keep it simple but have it look elegant. *so happy* And tell your husband “You’re so welcome!”
