Travelers understand the importance of protecting their jewelry against theft but taking precautions against damage is just as critical. Rings, necklaces and bracelets are at risk of cracking, breaking and scuffing every time a traveler packs for a trip. You can choose from a variety of affordable jewelry accessories to protect your precious items while they are away from home.
Accessories For Traveling With Jewelery
If you have nice jewelry you are going to travel with it is smart to take some precautions to protect your investment.
Many people pack their jewelry into a suitcase and check it at the airport. This presents problems because leather, canvas and nylon suitcases crush easily when buried underneath other suitcases in the baggage compartment of the airplane. A sturdy jewelry case features hard sides that stand up to any weight stacked on top of it. Storing jewelry separately from clothing prevents tarnishing because fabric holds moisture and increases the humidity in a closed environment.

Items to Eliminate the Risk of Tarnishing
Gases present in the atmosphere can cause silver and other metals to oxidize and tarnish. An anti-tarnish bag is made of plastic, has a zipper closure and features a coating on the inside surface that prevents metals from tarnishing due to oxidation. You can purchase a bundle of ten 6" x 8" bags for approximately $10. For earrings and rings, smaller bags are available and cost between $7 and $10 for a package of 100. Anti-tarnish paper or strips allow travelers to wrap jewelry items separately and provide additional padding for protection.
Desiccants to Reduce Moisture
Desiccants will prevent moisture build up if you must pack jewelry items in the same suitcase as your clothing. These small bags filled with clay, charcoal or silica gel are able to absorb moisture and prevent mildew, mold and fungus from growing inside the suitcase. These items cost between $5 and $8 for a package of twenty.

Boxes for Packing Watches
Small watch boxes often have pouches or pockets built into the lid for storage of cuff links and rings. Boxes with transparent tops are popular but will not have any storage pockets for additional items. A solid box with room for additional storage is the best choice for travelers. The box's interior should be large enough for the biggest watch you own. You should purchase a case that has plenty of room to keep the watch from scraping the insides of the box for the best protection against scratches and scuffs.
Pack Necklaces Safely Using Drinking Straws
Drinking straws are effective for preventing necklaces from becoming tangled. Thread one necklace through each straw with the clasp hanging out one end and bend the straw to close the loop. This will keep necklaces from snagging on other items and becoming tangled or broken.
There is no need to risk damaging your fine jewelry items when these inexpensive items will protect them for approximately $10, with the exception of a jewelry case, which will cost about $50. These items are well worth the investment, especially if you are a frequent traveler and are in the habit of taking your jewelry along with you.
