Not necessary. I’ve done some destructive testing myself using hot hide glue on good fitting miter joints and if anyone puts as much force as it took to break them on a jewellery box they shouldn’t own nice things. That said if you want, for your own peace of mind, to reinforce them… vertical splines as mentioned above will get the job (over)done for you.
Just my opinion of course. :-)
