If you’re planning a holiday soon, it’s important to think about how to take care of your jewellery while you’re away. Here are our top tips to keep your jewellery safe and in great condition while you’re enjoying your time off:

1. Avoid taking your valuable jewellery with you on holiday if possible. Losing expensive pieces while you’re supposed to be relaxing can be stressful. If you do decide to bring valuable jewellery with you, make sure it’s insured. Some travel insurance policies cover jewellery, but it’s worth checking and possibly taking out additional coverage if needed.

2. Invest in a jewellery roll for travel to keep your pieces organized and prevent chains from getting tangled. Keep it in your hand luggage to reduce the risk of things going missing.

3. When you’re not wearing your jewellery, store it in a safe place. This can be a hotel safe or a secure location in your luggage.

4. Remove your jewellery before swimming to avoid damage from chemicals and chlorine in the water. Make sure to store it somewhere safe.

5. Avoid wearing jewellery on the beach, especially if it’s something you value greatly. Sand can scratch certain gemstones and it’s easy to lose a ring or earring in the sand or sea.

6. Clean your jewellery regularly while on holiday, especially if you’re using sunscreen. Oils and chemicals in sunscreen can make gemstones look dull, so use alcohol wipes to keep them shining brightly.

7. If you’re travelling to a location with a high crime rate, consider leaving your most valuable jewellery at home. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

8. If you’re planning on participating in activities such as water sports or hiking, consider leaving your jewellery behind. It’s easier to lose or damage jewellery when you’re engaged in physical activities.

By following these tips, you can enjoy your holiday and return home with your jewellery still in excellent condition.
