The best way to protect your jewelry is by packing it in a hard case.
Hard cases provide protection from moisture, dirt and dust and allow you to store your pieces without worry.
You can purchase hard jewelry cases specially designed to store and transport jewelry or use a jewelry travel bag.
The hard case can be locked, which adds an extra layer of protection.

It’s also important to ensure the jewelry is well-padded and the hard case is secured properly. You don’t want it to become loose during transportation and do damage to your jewelry or other items packed along with it.
Soft cases are also a good option for protecting your jewelry.
Soft cases are lightweight and are great for smaller jewelry items, such as earrings. Favorite ones have many zippered pockets so your jewelry stays in place during transit.
They can be made from a variety of materials, including cotton, velvet or satin. Favorite ones allow you to hang the entire case in the bathroom or closet for super-easy access. This type is great for cruising, as cabins can be small and this type is space-saving.
Some people even use a pool float as a portable jewelry case! Simply cut up into a few pieces, and cut a slit on one side. You can link your necklaces around, slip on your bracelets and watches, too. Be sure to wrap around the outside to prevent scratching and damage.
You can also use bubble wrap to protect your jewelry.
Bubble wrap is an effective way to keep your jewelry from bouncing around during travel.
Before putting your jewelry into the bubble wrap, it’s a good idea to put each piece between two pieces of cardboard to help cushion it during transportation or purchase small bubble wrap bags.
If you are packing your jewelry in a suitcase, make sure to put it in a zip-type bag.
Zip-type bags are great because they are see-through and easy to find your jewelry when getting dressed.
Place the items in the bag, squeeze out all air, and seal it tight. This will help keep your jewelry from getting tangled up with other items in your suitcase and makes it easier to find each piece.
You can also use a locked jewelry box to pack your jewelry.
Jewelry boxes are designed to keep jewelry safe from the elements and make packing and unpacking easier.
Choose a locked jewelry box that is the right size for the items you are packing, and make sure to use plenty of padding inside the box.
The most popular jewelry boxes come with a lock, so you can ensure that your precious pieces are secure during your vacation.
Pack your jewelry in something, anything!
With careful packing, your jewelry can be secure and protected during your travels. Choose a packing method that is tailored to your specific pieces and needs and make sure to use plenty of padding to ensure your jewelry remains safe during transportation.
Whether you choose a hard case, a jewelry box, or simply bubble wrap, your jewelry will be safe and secure on your travels.
