Travel Treasures: Jewellery Essentials for Spring Getaways


Heading off for a spring break? Lucky you! No doubt you’ve got all the usual essentials in the bag. But have you thought about what you’ll be packing in terms of jewellery? Join us as we take you through our top tips for bringing together all the jewellery essentials you’re going to need to perfect your holiday style.

Versatile pieces

Versatility is key when space is limited. Choose pieces that can easily transition from day to night, such as simple hoop earrings, or layered necklaces or bracelets.

Compact storage solutions

Compact jewellery storage solutions for travel are a must. Travel organisers and pouches will protect your pieces whilst keeping them neatly organised.

Keep your jewellery safe

Your jewellery is precious and holds sentimental value, so it’s important to take steps to keep it safe whilst travelling. Be sure to use hotel safes where available, or keep valuable pieces on you in a discreet travel pouch.

If you have anything of particular value, you will probably need to declare it on your travel insurance, if it’s not already covered under ‘contents away from home’ on your home contents insurance.

It is essential that you check you have the right jewellery insurance and that you are adequately covered to replace any item should it become necessary. Be sure to keep your valuations up to date, because prices of the likes of gold do fluctuate and you may be surprised at how much your piece has gone up in value.

Go low-maintenance

Opting for low-maintenance jewellery that doesn’t need frequent cleaning or polishing whilst travelling is a good move. After all, who wants to spend their holiday cleaning?!

It’s also a good idea to do a thorough check of all the pieces you are intending to take on your trip. Some may need a little TLC, perhaps a repair or a spot of maintenance, or maybe even a good clean. If that’s the case, consider taking them into your local jewellery for a pre-holiday makeover, so they are vacation-ready just like you!

Destination-inspired jewellery

Going for jewellery pieces that reflect your travel destination is a nice way to give a nod to its style and culture. Whether it’s beach-inspired shell earrings, a bohemian-style beaded necklace, or a set of Indian gold bangles, you’ll be sure to blend in with the locals and the scenery.
