Traveling with Jewelry 101

Now that the holiday season is beginning, it is important to consider what you will be packing on your journeys. At Chasing Treasure, we offer several different types of travel cases for jewelry. If you travel regularly, it is a good idea to add a travel case to your collection of luggage. It is also a good idea to know what to bring along and what to keep at home.

The most important thing to consider is where you are going and what you will need to bring along. You should remember that vacations are times to relax and not worry, so you should keep every piece of jewelry that you would worry about at home. If the piece is valuable or special to you, it is a good idea to leave it at home, in a locked jewelry box (like the ones we offer at Chasing Treasure).

If you know you will be dressing up or enjoying casual evenings out, you can always bring a few pieces from your collection. Small earrings are easy to pack and so are chain-link bracelets. If you are worried about your necklaces getting tangled, you can leave them at home, too. You can also bring some pieces that make statements, but are not expensive. If you are unable to pack certain pieces because they are too big or too easy to tangle, you can always wear them on the plane.

Some travelers prefer to keep their wedding band and engagement ring at home. If you have a large diamond or an expensive band, it can be wise to wear something less flashy, especially if you are going somewhere that your jewelry could draw negative attention. If you are expecting to have outdoor adventures on your journey, it is a good idea to leave the expensive pieces at home. Some travelers will wear a basic wedding band instead of their prize pieces. Some will also buy rings that resemble their real pieces, but they will buy them out of fake gems like crystal so they do not need to worry if they get lost. If you have to take your jewelry with you, it is a good idea to look at your homeowners insurance to be sure your pieces are covered when you travel.

Anytime that you fly and take jewelry with you, you should only carry the jewelry with you at all times. If you check it with your bags, there is a chance it could get lost. In your carry on luggage, it cannot get lost. When you use a travel case, you can easily put pieces in the specialized compartments. If you bring long necklaces, it is a good idea to use a necklace roll to keep them from tangling. To keep the jewelry case from opening up during travel, buy one that locks. Keep the key in a safe spot so you do not lose it.
