How to Pack Jewelry

  1. Sort and Organize: Begin by sorting your jewelry into categories such as necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings. This will help you pack them more efficiently and prevent tangling.
  2. Clean and Protect: Before packing, ensure your jewelry is clean and dry. Use a soft cloth to gently wipe away any dirt or residue. For delicate pieces, consider using jewelry cleaner recommended by your jeweler.
  3. Wrap Individually: Protect each piece by wrapping it in packing paper or bubble wrap. For extra precaution, place items in Ziploc bags or jewelry pouches to prevent scratching and tangling. Using Straws with your Bracelets and Necklaces will help prevent tangling. Puncturing your earrings through a piece of cardboard helps keep them organized.
  4. Secure in Boxes or Containers: Place wrapped jewelry in small boxes or containers, making sure they fit snugly to prevent shifting during transit. Fill any empty spaces with additional packing paper or bubble wrap for added cushioning.
  5. Label Boxes: Don’t forget to label your boxes with contents and any special handling instructions. This will make unpacking a breeze and ensure your jewelry is handled with care throughout the moving process.
