For many folks, summer time means long-awaited and well-deserved vacation time. But no matter when or where you travel, for business or pleasure, choosing and caring for the jewelry that will accompany you on your trip is a source of great debate when it comes to the essential do’s and dont’s. We’re here to make it easier for you, so you can stop worrying about your travel jewelry and simply enjoy your trip. Here are three jewelry travel tips to help you get packed up and on your way… in style!
Keep it Simple
You’ve probably got your vacation jewelry all planned out already, along with the rest of your travel wardrobe. That’s great. Now go back and reconsider the choices you have made, and see if you can trim down the list a bit. The secret to vacation jewelry is to keep your selections simple and versatile. Keep statement pieces to a minimum, and fill out your travel jewelry collection with universal pieces that go with everything, such as your diamond stud earrings and bangle bracelets.
Keep it Organized
Keeping your vacation jewelry organized is a must, but this is also a goal that many have trouble achieving when they travel. Don’t overthink this aspect. But also don’t skimp when it comes to finding yourself a quality travel jewelry case. It’s not enough to simply pack all your jewelry into a pouch. Bracelets and necklaces can become tangled or damaged. A good travel jewelry case will have features designed specifically to keep your jewelry separated, organized and safe.
Keep it Clean
You may not think that jewelry cleaning is a high priority when you travel, but think again. Especially if you are traveling for an extended period of time, packing simple jewelry cleaning supplies is a good idea. If you will be vacationing near the ocean, for example, silver jewelry tarnishes quickly in salt air, so you’ll be glad you have the ability to give it a quick polish. If you’ve followed our vacation jewelry tip #1, you’ll likely be wearing your universal jewelry pieces multiple times throughout your trip, and so keeping them clean and sparkling is the key to looking your best while on vacation.
Traveling doesn’t have to mean putting your favorite fine jewelry at risk. Keep it simple. Keep it organized. Keep it clean. Follow these simple travel jewelry tips… and enjoy your vacation!
