Booking of airfare, hotel rooms, planning activities, checklists, packing, renting a car…. it’s a whirlwind of plans and plan b’s. And when you get there you want to relax, have fun and look good. We gathered to chat about our favorite jewelry finds and how to protect jewelry while traveling on our July 21st twitter party. Read on for tips and tricks on how to travel with jewelry.

What are your favorite fashion accessories when you travel? What pieces?

@Nupur_Ghosh My bracelets, small earnings, a nice sleek necklace.

@LuisPatVazquez I always have to have my bangle bracelets!!! And tons of earrings!!

@Starrfire1228 I go with a staple of clothes a couple casual, one nice dress and shoes- and a necklace that is nice but not expsv.

@tarametblog I’m all about packing the bling to dress-up an outfit while traveling, its part of the escape.

@sixfortheroad My sunglasses and a pretty pair of earrings.

@Zumba_KatieNB I always have a bracelet my dad gave me, and a couple pairs of earings.

@birdbanter My fave pieces I always travel with are my @TobyPomeroy silver hoop earrings. They go with everything!

How do you pack your jewelry when you travel?

@barblikos A velvet roll works nicely.

@Zumba_KatieNB I typically wear the jewelry I take with me. If I bring an extra set, I wrap them in clothes.

@TEXASMOM2THREE In ziploc bags in a make up bag that zips up. I try to keep it really protected!

Have you purchased jewelry on a trip? Where & what was it?

@alliberman Traveled 50 countries & bought & worn some really good jewelry in every one!

@VisitClintonCty Nice way to remember trips and make your trips meaningful (purchasing locally made jewelry).

@WorldTravelMom Really makes you remember the place when it’s local and handcrafted.

@PhilaTravelGirl Jewelry is the only souvenir I buy myself support local artists- great memories from around the world.

How do you safeguard your jewelry when you travel?

@stephen_radford I never thought about this (jewelry insurance) before but the several thousands I’ve spent on my wife it’s worth it.

@travelingmoms Great @PerfectCircleJM travel tip ALWAYS make a list of jewelry you brought- 2 copies, 1 w you.

@mommy3sons I use a hotel safe.

@nonprofitjessie I don’t bring a lot & I make it versatile so I am usually wearing it all!

@4jlessad I try to wear it and not bring more than I can wear at once.

@mgmigt I hide in my luggage, like in my sock rolls. I never leave in my bags or lying around.

@autiglobetrot When I do travel w/ jewelry I wear a money belt.
