If you choose to travel with your jewels, while in transit, keep your jewelry in your handbag or carry-on bag. If you are a frequent traveler, i.e. business traveler, you may wish to invest in a traveling jewelry case because they have the proper compartments that keep your jewelry organized and protected. One thing to keep in mind when purchasing a travel case is how much jewelry and what type of jewelry you will be traveling with—there are so many different types available. You want to make sure you purchase the appropriate type. Again, minimal is always the best and safest policy.
If you are staying at a hotel, a wise idea would be to keep your jewelry in the hotel’s safety deposit box or in your room’s safe. It is also advisable to take copies of sales receipts, appraisal certificates or insurance papers as proof of ownership; by doing so you will avoid any potential problems with customs with regards to import taxes and customs declarations.
When you are retiring for the night, you can keep all your jewelry organized quite simply—slip your rings through your watch band and then close the clasp. At the same time, if your strap is made from leather, you can press your earrings through their holes.
