Our Tips for Travelling With Jewellery

Whether heading to a destination wedding or simply taking a well-deserved holiday, travelling with jewellery can be a nerve-wracking experience. You don't want to spend the holiday fretting over the safety of your gorgeous coloured stone rings or favourite diamond earrings. Taking proper precautions is essential to ensure your precious pieces remain safe and secure throughout your journey. 

Discover our top tips for travelling with high-end jewellery and ease your mind before your trip!

1. Choose Your Pieces Wisely

When travelling, it's unlikely you'll need your entire jewellery collection. Before you pack, consider your itinerary and choose your pieces accordingly. You can't go wrong with simple earrings, a statement necklace, and your wedding/engagement ring.

2. Use a Jewellery Roll

When packing your jewellery, one of the best ways to organise and protect it while travelling is by using a jewellery roll. A jewellery roll is a soft fabric pouch with individual compartments for each piece of jewellery. It's compact and easy to pack, making it perfect for travel. You can find jewellery rolls in various sizes and styles, so choose one that suits your needs.

3. Take Photos of Your Jewellery

Before you travel, take photos of each of your jewellery pieces. Photos will help you remember what you packed and provide proof of ownership if anything goes missing or gets stolen. You can also use the photos to help you identify your jewellery if you need to make an insurance claim.

4. Carry Your High-End Jewellery With You

While packing your jewellery in your checked luggage might be tempting, carrying it with you in your carry-on bag is much safer. This way, you can keep a close eye on it throughout your journey and minimise the risk of it getting lost or stolen. If you must pack your jewellery in your checked luggage, ensure it's in a secure and well-padded container.

Ideally, you want to store your jewellery in your carry-on bag, where you can keep a close eye on it throughout the journey. If possible, store your carry-on bag under the seat in front of you; avoid storing carry-on luggage in the overhead compartments, except when required for safety reasons and requested by staff during takeoff and landing. You may take out your carry-on luggage during the flight and keep it with you if it doesn't obstruct the aisles or exits.

5. Use a Hotel Safe

When you arrive at your destination, use the hotel safe to store your jewellery when you're not wearing it. Most hotel safes are secure and provide additional protection for your high-end jewellery. Just be sure to take a photo of each item you store in the safe, so you have a record of what's inside.

6. Consider Travel Insurance

Finally, consider purchasing travel insurance that covers your valuable jewellery. This protection will provide peace of mind if anything happens to your treasured pieces while travelling. Before purchasing insurance, check the policy to ensure it covers loss, theft, and damage to the jewellery.


Enjoy a Stress-Free Holiday

Travelling with high-end jewellery doesn't have to be stressful if you take the right precautions; there'll be no need to shop for diamond wedding ring replacements. By packing smart, using a hotel safe, and considering travel insurance, you can be confident that your precious pieces will remain safe and secure throughout your journey.
