  • Pearl Storage

    I was wondering if anyone here stores their pearls in a way where you can view and appreciate their beauty?

    I know a box, away from light is best, but wondered if anyone had other ideas?

    I have a neckform in my bedroom and usually put the one I am wearing on it at night. The others live in their storage boxes they came in stored in the gun safe. I do have several shadow boxes with strands in them, but they are not removable.

      I keep threatening myself to buy proper jewelry storage. Right now they're in soft bags in a softlined drawer. I find the boxes they came in to be too bulky.

      I keep my earrings in those weekly pill boxes. One pair of earrings per "day."

        Hello Pearl People! This is my first post (yay), although I've been following all the threads for months and months and learning so much from all of you. Finally! I have something to share. I bought jewelry storage units from the Container Store. They expand horizontally to fit inside your drawers. I have two stacked in a drawer and although the drawer stays closed all day, there isn't a day that goes by that I don't open the drawer and fondle the contents. I have, sadly, run out of room in the storage units and need to figure out a way to expand -- maybe get rid of some clothes? Hope the photo comes through.

          I've heard of ladies attaching pins to either empty centers of velvet inset picture frames or to pillows they put out to enjoy. Is that something you were considering? I have heard too many horror stories on the forums of home burglaries to attempt something like that.

            Welcome to PG, Parrot Lady! I can see why you'd want to fondle those pearls!

              Welcome, Parrot Lady,
              Really, how can we balance security with easy access and visibility? So difficult to achieve! Parrot Lady, your layout looks really nice! Oh, oh, I see an empty spot!! lol

                I like the Container Store units Parrot Lady.

                I had thought about a shadow box idea, but I just don't know.. Thanks for the ideas.

                  Sort of hard to have things visible and secure as Patty noted. Best idea is to have everything photo'd and insured... and a proper safe.

                        I don't worry about anyone stealing my pearls. Most people think they're just beads. Especially if there are a lot of them. I'm more concerned about gold and diamonds being stolen.

                          Don’t think they would represent much of a value to any criminal, only to crazies like us Good point. If you do a break-in you will want easily recogniseable and resaleable value.
