Travel is a luxury that many people enjoy. Whether your plans include exploring a foreign country or staying within familiar borders, knowing how to keep your gold jewellery safe if you're bringing them along is essential.
How to decide which gold jewellery to bring?
Stick to minimalist pieces:
When it comes to choosing the gold jewellery to bring on your travels, we recommend prioritising minimalist pieces. Selecting versatile items that can be mixed and matched with different outfits allows you to create various looks while minimising the number of jewellery pieces you need to carry. By sticking to minimalist designs, you ensure that your jewellery seamlessly complements any ensemble.
Avoid bringing sentimental and/or expensive pieces:
While we understand that you may have attachments to certain jewellery items or high-value pieces, taking them on your trip may unnecessarily put them at risk. It's best to leave such items safely stored at home, ensuring their safety and preventing any distress in case of loss or theft.
Consider the destination and activities planned:
Take into account the nature of your destination and the activities you'll be engaging in during your trip. If you're heading to a beach or participating in outdoor adventures, you may want to leave behind delicate or intricate gold jewellery that could be easily damaged or lost.
How should you store your gold jewellery?
Use a jewellery pouch or box:
Having to hunt for a missing earring, untangle your necklace, or worse, see your gold jewellery scratched, can sour the start of your vacation. Store them in a good-quality jewellery pouch or box designed specifically for travel. These storage solutions often come with compartments and soft interiors to prevent your gold jewellery from scratching or tangling. They also provide a secure and convenient way to carry your pieces wherever you go.
Keep them in the hotel safe when they're not being worn:
Most reputable hotels provide in-room safes or offer safe deposit boxes at the front desk. Take advantage of these secure storage options by keeping your gold jewellery locked away when you're not wearing it. Remember to keep a record of the items you've stored and consider taking photographs of each piece in case they go missing or are stolen.
Keep them in sight at all times:
If you do not have any safe deposit boxes available, then you should keep them within your sight whenever possible. When travelling by plane, place them in your carry-on bag. You can also consider using a discreet and secure body pouch or a hidden pocket within your clothing. Alternatively, wear your gold jewellery while travelling but remember to remain vigilant and cautious.
What should you do if you lose your gold jewellery while travelling?
Despite taking precautions, accidents can still happen, and there is always a slight chance of losing your gold jewellery while travelling. If such an unfortunate situation occurs, here are some steps you can take.
Losing a cherished piece of gold jewellery can be distressing, but it's important to stay calm and composed. Panicking may harm your ability to think clearly and take necessary actions.
Retrace your steps:
Start by retracing your movements and revisiting the places you have been to recently. It's possible that you may have misplaced your jewellery rather than lost it.
Notify the authorities:
If you are unable to locate your gold jewellery, report the loss to the local authorities or the hotel management immediately. Provide them with a detailed description of the missing items and any relevant information that might aid in their recovery.
Contact your insurance company:
If you have travel insurance or personal property coverage, contact your insurance company as soon as possible to report the loss. They can guide you through the claim process and provide assistance in recovering the value of your lost jewellery.
