Traveling with Jewelry!

Travel Jewelry Case

If you’re planning to travel this summer, whether it be a road trip to another state or a grand holiday abroad, you need to make the most of the packing space you have. ChasingTreasure offers a wonderful array of jewelry cases perfect for travel. Available in different sizes and styles, there’s a case for any size jewelry collection. Consider these tips to ensure that your jewelry stays safe and well-organized on your journey.

-Pack with outfits in mind, and choose which accessories and jewelry pieces you’ll bring based on these outfits. Pieces that mix-and-match well work best, as do pieces that transition well from daytime looks to nighttime looks.

-The size of your case is important. It could be small enough to fit in your purse or carry-on, making sure that your precious jewelry collection is never too far from you. Or it could be larger, accommodating a large collection while still fitting into your luggage.

-Consider investing in a locking travel jewelry case from ChasingTreasure for even more peace of mind. It’s a theft deterrent and ensures that your case won’t accidentally jostle open while in your luggage.

-When going through airport security, consider keeping the jewelry you’re wearing on your person. Never leave unattended belongings in the bins.

-Use your hotel’s safe to keep your collection even more secure.

-Remember to leave some room in your jewelry case for new pieces you’ll buy on your trip!

Cartier & Animal Style Jewelry & Trinket Boxes

Cartier Onyx & Diamond Panther Bracelet

The name Cartier evokes opulence and luxury in jewelry design. The company’s creations fetch millions of dollars at auction without fail. But the most expensive piece of jewelry ever sold by Cartier has a price tag so high that it ranks among the most expensive pieces of jewelry from any designer of all time – the Wallis Simpson onyx and diamond panther bracelet.

Wallis Simpson is most famous for being the American socialite who won the heart of King Edward VIII, causing him to abdicate the throne in order to marry her. The piece is articulated so it wraps around the wrist. Its eyes are marquise-shaped emeralds, and the its spots are onyx. The diamonds offset the coloured gems. It sold for a staggering $12.4 million, over ten million dollars over the estimate, to an anonymous bidder. The rumor is that Madonna is the proud new owner of this historical piece.

If beautifully-jeweled animals appeal to you (but at a lower price) take a look at these jewelry trinket boxes. There’s a whole menagerie of glittering animals to keep your jewelry collection safe!

3 Reasons Why You Need to Place Your Jewelleries in a Safe Box

Luxury Jewelry Safe

Many people believe that the most secure and impregnable place to keep your valuables is on a safe deposit box. After all, banks are known to have the best 24/7 security and alarm systems.

However in the case of your precious jewelleries, a safe box is deemed a much better recourse so you can easily access them from time to time.

Here are three major reasons why you need to place your jewelries in a safe box instead of any ordinary box.
1. It provides protection against fire.
Since household fires are unpredictable, keeping your precious jewelleries in a safe box is a very sound idea. It will give you the much needed peace of mind knowing your priceless jewels are safe from any damage a fire can bring.
2. It protects against burglary.
Although most home safes don’t provide maximum protection against burglary, they are still deemed a practical and sound investment. When you buy one, make sure to choose a model that weighs about 100 pounds empty. The heavier it weighs, the higher the chance it will not be taken by thieves easily. In addition to being a less attractive target, most safe boxes also come with a bolt-down feature, making it an excellent deterrent to burglars.
3. It protects against water damages. 
Apart from being fire and theft proof, another additional feature a safe box can provide is its ability to provide protection against any damage water can bring. Keeping your priceless heirlooms in a safe box can help guarantee it is safe from damage or possible loss.

Other factors to take into account
Where to place it
The best place to stash away your safe usually depends on how your house is designed. Avoid placing your safe box in the master bedroom as it’s usually the area that gets ransacked first in the event of burglaries. If your house is situated in an area where flood is likely to occur, avoid placing it in the basement. If you wish to protect it against fire however, the basement is a better spot since there are lesser items down there to burn.
Where to purchase one
Home safes can be bought online or at hardware shops. If you like to buy online, make sure to check the shipping fee.

Taking all the benefits it has to offer, it’s safe to assume investing in a home safe box is without a doubt a wise and practical decision.
