Step 1: Pack as little jewelry as you can to match what you’ll be wearing. Be savvy by bundling outfits that work together, that are in similar color palettes or complement each other enough to allow you to match different outfits with the same few pieces of jewelry. An added bonus of this technique is that it will save you from paying hefty fees when it comes to checking in heavy luggage.
Step 2: Try not to take highly valuable, one-of-a-kind pieces that hold special sentimental value unless you plan to keep them on you at all times, i.e., wedding ring. These pieces can’t be easily replaced. Remember, it’s difficult to enjoy taking a piece of exquisite jewelry on a stroll when you're stressing over its safety.
Step 3: The best way to pack jewelry for travel is by using a jewelry roll. These rolls come in many sizes, but the most popular are 5 inches wide x 8 feet long. They are used to store rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets! The fabric is usually 100% cotton lined with nylon that makes it water-resistant, which will keep your delicate pieces protected during transit.
Step 4: This is the best time to create an inventory list and take photos. For added security, make a list of the items you are bringing with you on vacation. Before you leave, take photographs (or even videos) of each piece.
Step 5: Pack all of your precious jewelry in a small bag and keep it close to you at all times. If possible, use an anti-tampering device for your suitcase as well as any other luggage that may be transporting your beloved gems.
