How to Travel With Your Charm Bracelet
A charm bracelet really is a special one of a kind piece of jewellery. It can be made up of a collection of charms that reflect your personality and your interests and no two charm bracelets are alike. If you have a beloved charm bracelet that you like to wear everywhere, you will probably want to take it with you while you are travelling on your next holiday.
Of course, when you are travelling with your special handmade jewellery it is important to take care of it so that it is safe and is not damaged during your travels. If your charm bracelet is very expensive or very sentimental to you, you might want to leave it at home so that you don’t have to worry about it. However, if it is a jewellery piece that you want to bring with you, there are things you can do to care for it and keep it safe. Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind when you are traveling with your ChloBo charm bracelet.
Get a Travel Jewellery Case
When you are bringing your charm bracelet with you, consider what jewellery case you will carry it in. Perhaps you can carry it in the jewellery case that it came in, or you can invest in a travel case that is specifically made for jewellery. It doesn’t have to be expensive, there are many different options out there for jewellery cases. A well designed one will have several compartments where you can store other jewellery items and keep them free from scratches and tangles.
Pack it In Your Carry On Luggage
When you are travelling with jewellery it is a good idea to pack it with your carry-on luggage rather than with your checked baggage. That is because the checked bags are much more likely to get lost, so when you have your valuable jewellery in your carry-on baggage you know you will be keeping it with you at all times.
Bring Cleaning Supplies
Your silver jewellery might become dingy and tarnished on your trip, especially if you are visiting a humid climate. Make sure that you bring along supplies so that you can clean it and keep it looking brilliant. You can bring along a silver polishing cloth to buff your bracelet to a high shine, as well as some silver cleaning solution to remove the tarnishing.
Keeping Your Charm Bracelet Safe
When you are travelling with your charm bracelet it is important to keep it safe so that it doesn’t get stolen. The first thing to remember is to buy a suitable travel insurance policy that will cover your jewellery and keep it safe. This is an important guarantee that you can have in the eventuality that you do lose your jewellery.
In order to keep your jewellery safe you will want to avoid wearing it in public areas where it will attract a lot of attention. If you are going to a market where thieves are common, perhaps decide not to wear it that day and save it for an evening meal at a high class restaurant. Also, don’t leave it lying around in your hotel room. This is a common way for jewellery to go missing, because of dishonest hotel staff. When you check in at a hotel, ask them whether or not they have a facility for safe storage, such as a safe in the room or a safe at the reception.
Do You Need to Take All of Your Charms?
If you are like many charm bracelet owners you probably have more charms on your bracelet than you know what to do with, perhaps more than you can wear on the bracelet at any one time. When you are at home you can swap out your charms on a regular basis to create a lot of looks with your jewellery. However, you don’t necessarily need to take all of these charms with you on vacation. If you have lots of extra charms with you it becomes one more thing to take care of and potentially lose… so take only the charms that you need and keep the extra at home.
These are just a few tips to keep in mind when it comes to travelling with your charms bracelet, so bon voyage and have a great trip!
