The limited-edition Smythson Mara single-tray jewelry box (www.smythson.com) is as eye-catching as the pieces it is intended to hold. Priced at $1,225, it is cloaked in midnight-blue printed calf leather, and its compartments are lined with soft and supple nubuck. It measures 8.5 inches by 6 inches, with a depth of 6 inches, and comes with a key holder made of matching printed leather. Smythson, a British leather-goods company that has been in business for 125 years, also offers a matching business-card holder ($255).
