Does the warmer weather have you thinking about vacation plans? Wherever you may be headed, traveling with jewelry can be tricky without the right organizing product, especially if you are traveling with silver.
Take your travel destination into consideration when packing your jewelry. What is the climate there like? As you may already know, the presence of chlorine and salt in the air can trigger tarnish on your jewelry. Err on the side of caution and choose a jewelry travel case with tarnish protection.
Luckily, there are many travel products on the market that can keep your pieces separated, organized, and safeguarded from tarnish. If you are looking to get the most bang for your buck, invest in jewelry organizers that can be used at home but are also travel-friendly. While a traditional jewelry box is great on your dresser, it is not the best option when it comes to your suitcase. If you are only bringing one or two items, zip lock bags and pouches are soft, easy to pack, and will do the job. However, if you are traveling with several pieces of jewelry you don't want to have a bunch of pouches floating around your luggage.
Avoid this hassle by using a jewelry organizer with zippered pockets, such as a jewelry roll. A design with several sealed compartments will ensure that your items are secure from touching potentially harmful substances like cosmetics and won't go missing if they get tossed around. The last thing you want to be stuck doing during your getaway is untangling necklaces or searching for lost earrings.
There are many variations of the typical jewelry roll made from all different materials such as leather, for example. While leather looks nice, it contains a very high amount of sulfur, which, as you know from our previous posts, may cause tarnishing. Therefore, be mindful of the material a jewelry organizer is made out of when shopping around.
