Who doesn’t want to show off their favorite necklace or ring while traveling? The following tips will show you how to keep your jewelry safe and organized whether you’re jet setting to Paris or road tripping to Grandma’s.
A jewelry travel box is best for items that could be easily bent out of shape—like a delicate broach--or that don't fit in more compact pouches--think chunky bracelets and costume jewelry.
A roll pouch is an easy way to keep jewelry organized and compact. Most roll pouches have special compartments for rings, necklaces, and somewhat chunkier items like a watch.
Small velvet pouches can protect your jewelry from getting tangled, starched, and dirty. These pouches are excellent when you’re trying to back lightly and efficiently since, like jewelry roll pouches, they’re compressible—but for this reason, they’re not ideal for jewelry that could be easily bent or misshapen.
Large, spare buttons may be used to keep a pair of earrings together. Simply pin each earring post through a hole in the button, and secure the earring with an earring back or small piece of pencil eraser. Keep buttons in a soft bag or jewelry case. You don’t want them floating around in your suitcase!
Like a jewelry box, a Monday – Sunday pill box will keep your delicate items separate and safe. To further protect your pieces in the pill box, wrap each individual item in tissue paper, soft cloth, or Kleenex.
