2. Traveling with Jewellery
I’m sure everyone has their hints and tips for transporting their jewellery – either day to day in your handbag or going away for the weekend. Here are some of my faves.
A. First of all, if you are traveling with expensive jewellery then I recommend that you get insurance and also, be sure to pack it into your hand luggage and not in your checked in luggage in case this gets lost.
B. For day to day traveling I recommend having a soft pouch on hand.
C. For weekend getaways or longer trips, perhaps invest in a jewellery roll to keep your jewellery together, safe and clean.
D. You can also use any small boxes that you have, for example, you can clean out used lip balm holders or a popular one is to use a 7 day pill box. Bonus points for arranging what day you will wear your jewellery and storing accordingly;-) Check out your local chemist to buy one.
E. Ever get to your destination and all of your necklaces are tangled into one big knot!? If this happens to you then once you get to point 5 and our Useful Jewellery Hacks you will know how to handle it. BUT to prevent it in the first place try slipping one side of your chain into a plastic straw to keep the sides apart.
