While expensive jewelry might be your wardrobe staple, traveling with it does pose some significant safety issues. Not only do you risk being robbed, but you could damage or lose your valuable jewelry during your travels. With that said, secure your collection with a customized New Jersey Jewelry Insurance policy and heed the following advice for safe traveling with your valuable items.
Make a list.
List all the jewelry you’ll take with you. Keep one copy with you and store it separately from your jewelry. Leave another copy at home. Also take pictures or a video of your jewelry, says The Blonde Abroad.
Carry-on your jewelry.
Never put expensive jewelry in a checked bag. Instead, wear it or bring it in a carry-on. This will allow you to keep track of your items and prevent theft. Furthermore, when you arrive at your hotel, don’t hand a bag that contains your jewelry to the staff members. While they are likely trustworthy, it’s best to personally carry it up to your room just to be safe.
Lock it up.
When not wearing your jewelry, take advantage of the hotel safe. Never leave valuable jewelry unattended or out in the open when leaving the room. Bear in mind that some hotels offer personal lock boxes behind the front desk, which is also a great option.
Insure your jewelry.
Speak with your trusted insurance agent about getting the proper coverage to adequately protect your collection. They will assess the value and determine how much you need. This provides peace of mind for you year-round, so get insurance before your departure.
