Here at Zillion, we’re all about empowering people to feel safe and secure about their valued jewelry. We want nothing more than for you to be able to wear it with confidence — whether you’re out on the town, out on the road, or even out of the country.
It might sound simple or silly, but it’s true. If you don’t travel with something…well, then you can’t lose it. Before you drive off to the next state or jet off to another continent, ask yourself if you really need to have your most precious jewelry with you. Simply put, it’s going to be safer and more secure if it’s left behind at home — or even better, on your own finger. When it comes to keeping your most valued jewelry safe at home, we have some helpful tips on how to store it there, too.
Pack to Protect
Whatever jewelry you do decide to bring with you, it’s best to make sure it’s packed in as protective a manner as possible. Consider investing in a travel jewelry case before your trip. Then, when it comes time to hit the road (or take to the skies), place each piece carefully into a single compartment, to avoid any tangling or other friction. In a pinch, one of those easy-to-find and easier-to-afford daily pill boxes will work for pieces like earrings and rings. For extra security, you can store your jewelry pieces in small plastic bags before packing them into a case.
Whatever jewelry you decide to bring with you on a trip that involves airplane travel, be sure to pack it with you in your carry-on bag. Simply put, checked bags always have a far greater chance of getting lost in transit — especially if your trip involves changing planes and multiple airports. This way, you’ll be able to keep a watchful eye on your valued jewelry. You can also consider wearing all your jewelry on your travel days.
Stick with the Bag Theme
You might want to also consider traveling with a designated “jewelry bag” — whether this is a smaller handbag or something even smaller that fits inside your handbag. This way, whenever you leave your hotel room to go out and explore, dine inside a restaurant, take a tour, or embark on any other adventure, you can make sure your valuable jewelry is safe with you at all times. Just make sure not to leave this bag unattended in your car, or anywhere else, for that matter. It’s probably best to not let hotel or other staff handle this bag, either.
No Shirt, No Shoes, No Jewelry
The best vacations seem to involve the ocean and the beach. If you’re about to embark on such a getaway, consider leaving your jewelry back in your hotel room — in a safe, secure location, of course. Many hotels provide an in-room safe for valuables such as jewelry, and this is always a good option. Even if you don’t lose your diamond ring down at the beach, you can do some real damage to it digging and playing in the sand. Even the harsh elements of ocean breezes can create unwelcome wear-and-tear on your valuable jewelry pieces. It’s best to leave them behind when you venture out near the sea (or lake).
Insure it with Zillion
The number one tip before you go? Make sure your valued jewelry is insured. That’s where Zillion comes in. A jewelry insurance policy through Zillion will protect your valuable piece or pieces against loss, theft, accidental damage, and even natural disasters while traveling. In the unfortunate event you should lose your jewelry while traveling, we make the claims process as simple and painless as possible.
