How to Pack Jewelry For Travel

by The Belle Voyage

One of the best ways to mix up and dress up the outfits in your suitcase is with jewelry.  I know, I’m stating the obvious, but stick with me.

For many years, I would stuff my suitcase with multiple drawstring pouches filled with chunky, heavy jewelry, and then wonder why I wasn’t able to lift my bag.  Looking back, I had a clear case of what I will call accessory anxiety.

It’s true: I feared that I wouldn’t know what jewelry to wear with each outfit, so instead I just brought EVERYTHING.  Sound familiar?

Bringing everything is definitely one way to combat accessory anxiety.  Over the years I have developed an alternative approach that seems to work much better: instead of bringing everything, I bring a few things that go with everything.  Simple, no?  Behold my favorite jewelry for travelers – these are often all that I pack!

Tips for the Best Way to Travel with Jewelry:

The best way to travel with jewelry is to stick with one color palette: gold or silver.  Most of my jewelry happens to be gold, so that works for me.

I bring two necklaces: one long statement necklace in a neutral color, and a simple tiny charm necklace.  These both go with just about everything and can transition from casual (think a maxi dress, shorts and a tank, or a sundress) to my most polished business suit.

Next, I bring a pair of gold studs that have some character, and a chunky bracelet that can make any simple outfit look a little more glam, but is still preppy enough to pair with a blazer.

I throw on the earrings, the bracelet, and one of the necklaces with what I’m wearing on the plane, and the second necklace goes in my suitcase.  Done!
