How to Pack Jewelry for Vacation

Heading out on a summer vacation? Lucky you! Pack jewelry to go with tips from NYC-based jeweler Stephanie Gottlieb.

• If you don’t have a proper jewelry case, ziplock bags are a great option. You can see each piece, so nothing gets lost.

• Avoid rolling jewelry in clothing—it’s easy to forget when unpacking, and you could accidentally cause damage. Use clothes as layers of cushioning between pouches instead.

• Pack statement pieces individually in their own bag or pouch to prevent damage.

• Put individual earrings in separate baggies, then place each pair in a larger bag. This will keep stones from falling out and help prevent scratches. 

• To avoid tangled necklace chains, pack each piece in its own plastic bag with the clasp on the outside of the bag.
