Stratford Jewelry Chest is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Value Purchased this on sale at $239.00 - absolutely beautiful. This thing is a tank, so make some room for it. Take note of dimensions. There could not possibly be a better piece for the price, even at $349.00, which I believe is the standard price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well laid out & great features The chest came well wrapped & was in perfect condition when I took it out. I don't find the side doors hard to open at all like some have mentioned. It is a beautiful color & is everything I was hoping it would be!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Pretty!!! I asked for a "regular-sized" jewelry box for Christmas from another one of my favorite stores - and was surprised to find the "biggest box ever" underneath our Christmas tree. My husband surprised me with the Stratford Jewelry Chest in French White to fit all of my favorite jewelry (I have a ton of costume jewelry and watches that I love, but couldn't find a place to store in one place)! It is so pretty and fits my decor perfectly! I have darker wood furniture and the french white added the perfect touch of lightness - I just love it! Like other reviews stated, the side doors are a little hard to open, but it's so pretty and roomy, it really doesn't bother me. Here are pics - enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good visual workmanship The craftsmanship is is very good and the wood finish is very pleasing to the eye. The one negative is the drawer slides are rough and makes for uneven drawer movement. The item was well packed for shipment with impact resistant corner support well positioned to prevent "dings" and scratches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality at an affordable price I had been searching for nearly a year when I came upon this jewelry chest. The craftsmanship is excellent and it's a beautiful piece to look at. It has ample storage space for your jewelry and can be used use store other items. I use mine to store my silk scarfs. The only negative feature is it's very difficult to open the side storage panels. The magnets are extremely strong and there is no handle to open it with. Other that it was a great investment for a beautiful piece of furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than I expected I purchased this for my daughter for her birthday, and she was thrilled. It was exactly what she wanted. The construction and quality of the workmanship was much more than I expected. And this piece far exceeded the offerings of any competitor in quality and price. As an added plus, the company let me know exactly when to expect delivery. I will definitely purchase from Ballard Designs in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! Well made, great looking, eloquent, well priced and has plenty of room. The piece is a complimented to my taste for fine furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Execellent product at a reasonable price The Stratford Jewelry Chest exceeded our expectations in quality, organization and capacity. The addition of small adhesive backed bumpers allow the side panels to be opened easily. My wife is delighted with the storage capacity that the Chest provides and the ability to store necklaces without tangled chains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Door magnets not a problem The only thing I was hesitant about was because of a review I read about the side door magnets being too strong. As it turns out, the magnets are easily adjustable so you can make the side doors as easy or hard to open as you like. The chest arrived quickly and in good shape. It's a quality piece of furniture that looks great in the bedroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted Was looking to consolidate all my jewelry from several boxes to one armoire... the comments about the side panels being hard to open are true, but it can be handled with some tape on the magnets. I bought the off-white one and it looks great in my bedroom. Again, thanks Ballard for another good product. I think I have more than 10 pieces from your catalogue in my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice piece of furniture I stalked this item for 9 months on the website waiting for the price to drop, and when it came down I bought it. Very nice piece of furniture, well made & packed very well. Like the other reviews, the only complaint is the magnets on the side doors are very strong & the doors are very hard to open. I just put a small piece of duct tape over one side of each of the magnets & doors still stay closed but now much easier to open. Also you can't place too close to the back wall as the side doors need clearance to open. Overall I am thrilled with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product at Great Price As always, everything I purchase from Ballard Designs is a quality product. The jewelry chest is just what I was looking for. There is plenty of space for rings, bracelets, pins, earrings, necklaces and much more. Great product at a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely piece Got lucky and found this box on sale just before Christmas. I caught my hubby off-guard and asked if I could order it. He said o.k. and was SO surprised when he saw the actual size! I went crazy and ordered the white to go in a bedroom with all dark furniture. It looks great! Now I'm shopping for more Ballard items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter loved it Had a hard time finding a white armoire that wasn't too contemporary looking. This is a quality item with the right look my 20 year old daughter wanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality I expected this to be a nice piece but even I didn't expect the level of quality/beauty that I received for the price. Well made, safely shipped, and a beautiful addition to any jewelry collection! Ballard has exceeded my expection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Chest! Bought it for Christmas for my wife and she loves it! Only issue - like others have said, wish they had knobs for the side doors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece, lots of room for plenty of jewelry. Happy with the product, however I received a giant packet thanking me for the purchase days later. My fiance found the packet in the mail, spoiling some of the surprise of the jewelry chest as a Christmas gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my jewlery chest! The jewlery chest is great! Its beautiful and blends in well with my bedroom furniture. The chest is the perfect size. My only suggestion would be a tray in one of the drawers for earrings. I do miss that. I would totally recommend this product. I would like to add that the chest was shipped well and was in great condition upon arrival. Thanyou!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well constructed, great quality Jewelry Chest I am always sceptical about purchasing furniture without actually seeing it first hand. We had been searching for a few years for a new one that would match our furniture. The order took two days to arrive and was well packaged. Good thing it was because UPS destroyed the box! Much to my surprise the chest was not damaged. The chest was a perfect match to our bedroom. This is a solid piece of furniture and a great value at $239 for such a high quality piece. The side doors can be difficult to to open as mentioned in other reviews, however it didn't bother my wife. Good if you have small children around. A small knob added to the side could easily take care of this minor issue if it's a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous amount of storage in a beautiful piece of furniture I've been looking for a jewelry chest forever. Finally, one that looks like a "real" piece of furniture. It has great storage and compartments. It blends perfectly with my existing furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good value! I ordered 2 of these chests for my adult daughters. They were beautiful. As was mentioned in earlier reviews, the magnets on the side doors are VERY strong, which can be a good thing, but they are difficult to open. The overall quality and appearance is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Stratford Jewelry Chest! Well, after wanting a "free-standing jewelry chest" for a long, long time... there it was in the Ballard Catalog on sale! So I ordered it and now I'm really thrilled! Packaging & shipping from Ballard were top notch as usual...no problems there. And the item was exactly as pictured and represented. I love having all my jewelry organized and easy to see, so I am wearing so many more pieces, instead of just those "on the top"! A place for everything....necklaces, braclets, rings, watches and lots of room for all my earrings. YES! I definitely would recommend this item!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This jewelry chest is very nice and has ample room. The chest is exactly what I wanted. I am very pleased with it. However, when I unpackaged it every screw (about 8) to one of the hinged doors had popped out. My guess is the handling got pretty rough at one point. I simply placed the screws back into the chest and have not had any problems.
