An occasional look at products the travel industry insists we need.
WHAT: Jewelry roll.
AIMED AT : Fashionista travelers who feel naked without their earrings, necklaces, bracelets, pins and rings.
HOW MUCH: $32 for the carrier, in brown or pink.
BUT DOES IT WORK? Somewhere between here and there lay millions of lost earrings and rings. We blame those evil jewelry rolls that mix the different species and allow us to walk around a new city with a stud clinging to -- then falling from -- our necklace. Flight 001's stylish model, however, gives each piece of jewelry its own home: Rings slip onto a soft, removable log; earrings peg into an 18-hole piece of cloth; and bracelets, necklaces, brooches, etc., can be separated into two medium-size pouches. When we dumped half of our jewelry box into the carrier, which resembles a smart clutch, it didn't bulge and its buckle remained shut. Then, when we were ready to adorn, our sparkly valuables were clearly laid out before us, never again tempted to visit the Land of Lost Jewels. -- Andrea Sachs
