Protecting Your Fine Jewelry on Vacation


As the summer months’ approach, many people begin making plans for their next getaway. When it comes to vacation planning, there is a lot to consider. From plane tickets and booking hotel packages to exchanging currencies and getting your passport ready. However, jewelry care is often a neglected step in the process, leaving many vacationers disappointed that they’ve lost or damaged their favorite diamond bracelet or engagement ring. At Royal Design Fine Jewelry in Atlanta, Georgia, we want to help you keep your beautiful jewelry safe and well maintained for years to come. Here are a few tips that can help your earrings, bracelets, rings and necklaces secure and picture perfect when you leave on your next adventure. 

Never Leave Jewelry Unattended

There may be moments when you’re tempted to leave your suitcases or bags unattended for convenience. You may also decide to take off your diamond bracelet to apply sunscreen and make yourself vulnerable to theft. Ask if your hotel has a safe or safety deposit box so that your valuable jewelry can stay safe between use. And if you’re going to be lounging on the beach or hanging out by the pool, it might be best to leave certain items behind. 

Keep Items Organized

Don’t just throw your jewelry pieces in a bag or a pocket inside your luggage. Doing so could damage your jewelry during travel. The gold chain on your necklace could become tangled with earrings and other items. Pearls could become scratched or tarnished by precious stones and hard metals. Invest in a quality travel jewelry case or jewelry roll with individual compartments for each item. This will help keep your fine jewelry separated and safe when they aren’t being worn. 

Check Credentials if Purchasing Fine Jewelry on Vacation

For many, shopping in Milan or Paris is an invitation to view and purchase some of the world’s most exquisite jewelry. If you’re in Switzerland, it might be tempting to search for a luxury watch. You may find a gorgeous raw cut stone in the markets of Brazil. Regardless of where you find your next stunning treasure, make sure you’re buying it from a reputable jeweler. Ask for certifications for diamonds and other gemstones, there are many who try to take advantage of tourists and it’s important that you make good choices when investing in fine jewelry. 

Consider Insuring Expensive Jewelry Before Leaving Home

If you plan on taking a particularly expensive item such as your engagement ring or your 3 carat diamond stud earrings, you might want to go the extra mile and get your jewelry insured. Doing so would guarantee that you would be reimbursed if your favorite jewelry piece is lost, stolen or damaged.
