Traveling with Jewelry: Packing Tips to Safely Transport Your Precious Stones

Traveling with Jewelry: Packing Tips to Safely Transport Your Precious Stones

 

Planning your next big vacation? Feeling excited to take your favorite jewelry pieces with you and show them off on your trip? As exciting as the prospect of getting up and leaving on a jet plane may be, the thought of packing your jewelry probably has you feeling a little anxious. How do you ensure that your beloved stones make it to your destination safe and sound?

JEWELRY PACKING TIPS

While these accessories may not be the first thing you think about when packing for a trip, taking some precautionary steps to ensure your valuables arrive at your destination safely can give you some much-needed peace of mind. That way, you can focus on having a great time on your trip, without worrying about these little extras.

Choose Your Pieces Wisely

Not every piece of jewelry is travel-friendly. When deciding which pieces to bring, consider how well they’ll hold up in transit.

After all, the whole point of going on vacation is to relax and have a good time. Stressing about your accessories the whole voyage is not going to make for a very enjoyable trip.

Our rings are great pieces to travel with. They are light weight and can be worn daily. They are easy to pack in a jewelry bag or case or be worn while traveling.

Invest in a Durable Travel Case

Once you figure out which pieces you’re going to take with you, it’s time to start thinking about how to pack them. Using a sturdy, well-made jewelry case is the best way to protect your belongings while you’re on the go.

A good travel case will have plenty of compartments and pockets to keep things organized, so you can easily find what you’re looking for. Separating your items into different sections will also help prevent pieces from getting tangled or damaged.

Some even have soft, padded lining to help cushion your accessories and keep it safe from scratches. If you’re extra worried about your pieces getting jostled around, you can even find cases with built-in shock absorbers.

If you’re traveling with particularly valuable or delicate pieces, look for a case that has a built-in lock. These small locks can help deter thieves, and give you an extra layer of protection for your most prized possessions.

Put Fragile Items in Jewelry Bags

When you have pairs of earrings, dainty necklaces, or other delicate jewelry, it can be tempting to just throw them all in a case and hope for the best. But taking a little extra time to properly pack these items can go a long way in preventing them from getting damaged or tangled.

One of the simplest and most effective ways to do this is by using jewelry bags. Just put each piece in its own bag, and then throw them all in your case. This will keep them from banging around and getting tangled up with other pieces. When you buy a piece of jewelry from us it comes with its own box and/or jewelry bag which is perfect for traveling with!

Consider Jewelry Insurance

Even if you take all the necessary precautions, accidents can still happen. Whether it's losing a piece on the beach or having your necklace snag while you're out exploring, sometimes jewelry mishaps are just unavoidable.

To protect yourself from financial loss in case of damage or theft, it's a good idea to get jewelry insurance. This type of coverage will reimburse you for the cost of repairing or replacing lost or damaged pieces, up to a certain limit.

Before buying a policy, make sure to read the fine print and understand exactly what is and is not covered. That way, you'll know what to expect if the worst happens and you need to make a claim.

CAN JEWELRY GO IN A CARRY-ON?

The short answer is yes, you can bring jewelry in your carry-on bag. It might actually be even more beneficial to pack it in your carry-on, rather than wearing it through the airport and security checkpoints.

This is because taking jewelry off and putting it back on can be a bit of a nuisance, especially if you have to remove multiple items.

IS JEWELRY ALLOWED ON AIRPLANES?

There are no specific restrictions on bringing jewelry on an airplane, but there are some general rules that you should follow.


First, you'll have to go through additional screenings if you're wearing anything that sets off the metal detectors. This includes items like large belt buckles and of course, heavy metal jewelry.


Fine, delicate items like gold chains or diamond rings are unlikely to set off the detectors, but anything that's chunky will probably trigger an alarm. So, it's generally best to just take these items off and put them in your carry-on bag before checking in with officials.


Second, always keep a close eye on your belongings when you're going through security. The airport screening agents are focused on screening passengers and their bags, so they might not notice if someone walks off with your valuable possessions.

Finally, remember that the rules for carry-on luggage apply to jewelry as well. This means that you're limited to bringing small, lightweight items that can fit in your bag.

So, leave the bulky accessories at home.  Our cyclical collection rings with lab grown diamonds make great travel companions! Happy packing and enjoy your trip! Don't forget to snap pics and tag us on the gram
