I hope that you are notified that I am posting here!
While I was at the Renaissance Faire this year, there was a booth with ear cuffs. They had a sort of tray about an inch deep, that had these shelves. On the shelves were these kind of prongs, or "fingers" sticking up, that they slid the cuffs onto. They were small enough for the cuffs to rest near the bottom of the "fingers". They presented the tray in an upright standing position, so that saves space.
Hope that helps! I have been looking for other answers, but it's a hard idea to think up!
