Must Know Traveling with Jewelry Hacks

  • If you are staying at a hotel, when you're traveling with jewelry, a good idea is to keep your jewelry in the hotel's safety deposit box or in your room's safe. Check before you make the booking that the hotel has a room safe or a safety deposit box.
  • Consider taking copies of sales receipts, appraisal certificates or insurance papers as proof of ownership. In doing this, you will avoid any potential problems with customs with regards to import taxes and customs declarations.
  • Before retiring for the night, a simple way to keep all your jewelry organized is to slip your rings through your watchband and then close the clasp. If the watch band is made from leather, you can then press your earrings through the watch straps holes.
  • Be culturally sensitive. In many glorious destinations, local people struggle because of poverty and rely on tourists for their livelihood. Tourists who wear a lot of jewelry stand out and are a potential target.
  • If you're traveling with jewelry and heading to a beach destination, do not wear your jewelry. Especially your rings, because the only person who will be laughing to the bank will be the person who is scouring the beaches with his metal detector.

Suntan lotion makes your fingers slippery and rings can slip off easily. Swimming in the cold ocean, your fingers shrink and your rings can easily slide off. Diamonds are forever, true - but forever with YOU - not forever lying on the bottom of the ocean like the Heart of the Ocean on the RMS Titanic.

When you get back home with your jewelry, you have a range of jewelry storage options available, and one of the most popular and most beautiful ways to store jewelry in the home, just ask Melanie is the jewelry armoire.
