When it comes to holiday packing, jewellery can present a particular challenge. Deciding whether to bring along your cherished valuable pieces can be a tough decision. However, taking proper care of your jewellery while on holiday is crucial for its protection and longevity. To help you navigate this conundrum, here are some valuable tips to ensure the safety and beauty of your jewellery while traveling:
1. Choose wisely:
Consider leaving your most valuable and sentimental pieces of jewellery at home. Instead, opt for pieces that are less expensive or have less sentimental value.
2. Insure your jewellery:
Before traveling, make sure your jewellery is properly insured. Contact your insurance company to check if your existing policy covers loss, theft, or damage while traveling. If not, consider purchasing additional coverage.
3. Secure storage:
When you're not wearing your jewellery, keep it securely locked in the hotel safe or a locked suitcase in your room. Avoid leaving it unattended in your hotel room or on display.
4. Wear discreetly:
While wearing jewellery can add style and elegance to your holiday outfits, it's a good idea to be discreet. Avoid wearing excessive or flashy jewellery that could attract unnecessary attention.
5. Avoid exposure to water:
Remove your jewellery before engaging in water-related activities such as swimming, snorkeling, or hot tubs. Chlorinated water and salt water can damage certain metals and gemstones.
6. Clean and inspect:
Regularly inspect your jewellery for loose stones, worn claws, or any signs of damage. At Ryan Thomas, we provide a complimentary jewellery clean and check to our customers.
7. Pack with care:
When traveling with jewellery, use a padded jewellery case or a small bag with individual compartments to prevent items from scratching against each other. Keep delicate pieces separate and tangle-free.
8. Be cautious at security checkpoints:
During airport security screenings, keep your jewellery on your person rather than placing it in bins or trays where it can easily be forgotten or stolen.
9. Document your jewellery:
Before traveling, take detailed photographs of your valuable pieces. This will be helpful for insurance claims if anything happens to your jewellery during your trip.
Remember, prevention is key when caring for valuable jewellery while on holiday. By following these tips, you can minimize the risk of loss, damage, or theft and enjoy your holidays with peace of mind.
