How to Travel with Jewellery the Right Way
Posted on 20 July 2017
We hope you already booked or enjoyed your summer vacation this year or, if not, you will do so pretty soon!
When it comes to travelling, one of the most cringe worthy parts is the packing! Fearing the fact that you won't have everything you need, you end up overpacking which leads to frustration and difficulties carrying your travel bags.
Because we enjoy offering you useful tips and you already know we adore jewellery, we compiled a list of tricks for travelling with jewellery.
First of all, you shouldn't pack anything that you fear loosing, which includes things like your wedding band and pieces with great monetary and emotional value. The best jewellery pieces to take with you are the items that are easily replaced and easily cared for.
So what is the right way to transport your precious pieces? We think you should definitely invest in a jewellery transport case as you can find many affordable ones on Amazon.
If you do not feel like spending money on a case there are many other options available, for example you could buy a 5 dollar daily pill case from your local pharmacy or use the manufacturer's boxes for safe travel.
If you want to prevent necklaces from tangling, you can use drinking straws. One necklace should go through one straw and then be clapped. After you can place the straws in a box or towel. Speaking of towels you can just fold your jewellery in a DIY ”transport towel”. Quick, easy and effective.
Another idea is to use a disposable piece of cardboard as a support for earrings. Just pinch the earrings through the cardboard and clasp them on the other side.
There are a lot of easy ideas to pack jewellery, you just need a bit of creativity and some time to plan ahead. We do advise you to not leave packing your bags to the last moment!
But in the end, vacations are about experiences, adventure and relaxation so just enjoy yourself, nobody will care if one day you decide to show up without any jewellery. Remember that sometimes less is more, even when it comes to packing your luggage.
