Eddie Borgo‘s just-launched jewelry boxes are like the chicest caboodles we’ve ever seen. Of course, we’re probably just blinded by ’90s nostalgia. Borgo modeled his jewelry boxes after classic train cases. They were handcrafted in Italy and come embellished in exotic skins like snakeskin, something called “terra lizard,” crocadile and shagreen. Gold triangle details along the borders mimic Borgo’s signature spiked jewelry. So basically, these are the opposite of that plastic caboodle you had when you were 13.
