Photo by Coral Interiors Curate a collection. If you have a collection of small, pretty items, gather them in a dish. The brass platter in this room holds semiprecious stones and crystals, which would otherwise look lost or might end up falling off the table.
Another great way to display stones and crystals is in a glass box with a lid. Do be careful not to place highly faceted stones in direct sunlight, though, as they can be a fire risk.
