    I've got several pairs (okay 5 pairs) of South Sea pearl earrings ranging from studs to dangling earrings. They are 11mm to 13mm big. I'm trying to figure out the best way to store them in a travel jewelry box. Most of the travel boxes I see have a hole to put the earring in but since the pearls are so large the box won't close!

    I would like to travel with them but am trying to avoid using little plastic baggies to store them. I know that you're not supposed to store them together so it'll scratch the nacre.

    TIA!

    I've been storing them in the zipper bags but I read that they're supposed to breathe.

    Spending time in a plastic bag will not hurt your pearls. They spend months travelling from farm to factory to wholesaler to retailer in plastic bags..and...together. tahits-300x169.jpg

    We're not recommending you store them permanently in bags... just when traveling. The bags will not hurt the pearls.
