    a peripheral wall secured to the upper wall around a periphery of the upper wall, with lower edges of the peripheral wall being supportable on a surface so that the upper wall is spaced above the surface;

    means on at least one of said upper wall and said peripheral wall for holding a jewelry item on said upper exposed surface;

    a hollow area at the underside of said upper wall and between said peripheral wall, said hollow area having an open portion at a lower side of said peripheral wall for containing a necklace connected with the jewelry item when the jewelry item is held on the upper exposed surface; and
