If you are planning for a trip, you might be wondering whether or not you should take your jewellery along with you. On the one hand, you want to look chic and stylish on your travels but on the other hand you don’t want to risk your jewellery getting lost or damaged. What should you do?
How Precious is the Piece of Jewellery?
The first thing to ask yourself before deciding to bring your jewellery with you on your travels is whether or not you would be absolutely devastated if that particular piece of jewellery was lost or stolen. We all have some pieces of jewellery that aren’t incredibly meaningful to us and if they were lost we would be annoyed, but not heartbroken.
However, we also have other pieces of jewellery that are incredibly sentimental and irreplaceable and if they were to go missing we would be very upset – such as a meaningful ChloBo charm bracelet and the charms you have collected over many years. If your jewellery fits in the latter category you would be better off keeping it at home so that you don’t have to risk losing it on the road.
Tips for Traveling with Jewellery
So what about the jewellery that isn’t too precious to you and that you are comfortable with bringing on the road with you? What should you do to keep it safe while you are travelling?
Here are some tips that you should keep in mind whenever you are travelling with jewellery:
- Plastic drinking straws can be a great way to help you pack your necklaces so that you can avoid getting them tangled. Insert the necklace through the straw and the firm plastic will mean that you will never have to untangle a knot of necklaces again.
- You can use buttons as a way of keeping your earrings organised. Just put the earrings through the two button holes to keep them together.
- Another idea for keeping your earrings organised is index cards – you can insert the earrings through them and they will keep everything together.
- If you can find any of those seven-day pill boxes that are used to manage weekly pill doses, they can be perfect for storing pairs of earrings when you travel.
- You could also use those small re-sealable plastic bags to store your necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery when you pack your luggage.
- A jewellery roll pouch is also a great idea when it comes to travelling with your jewellery items. There are many different styles of jewellery pouch available, so you can choose one that fits with your style and your jewellery collection.
- It is even possible to travel with your jewellery in a small fabric pouch. You can make one on your own by getting some fabric and tying it up with a little bit of string or a shoelace.
- Another cool idea is to use some clear press and seal wrap. This is a great way to keep your jewellery safe and protected when you travel
- Don’t wear very flashy and expensive looking jewellery when you are travelling – or you will make yourself a target for pickpockets.
- You will want to avoid wearing jewellery when you are out in busy public areas, such as marketplaces, during flight transits and on bus journeys. Pickpockets usually worn in crowded public areas where they can easy disappear into the crowd once they have snatched your jewellery.
- Make sure that you have travel insurance, so that if your luggage is lost or stolen you will be able to file a claim and get it back. You might want to take photos or make a list of the jewellery that you are bringing with you so that you will know what you have lost if your bag goes missing.
- Don’t leave your jewellery lying around lose in the hotel room, as sometimes hotel cleaning staff are not always honest and they might be tempted to steal it. If there is a safe within the hotel you can keep it in there.
These are just a few important tips to keep in mind when it comes to taking your jewellery travelling with you. You want to look chic and stylish during your trip, so as long as you follow these tips there should be no problem taking your ChloBo designer jewellery with you.
