Ah, that jewelry case filled with, those glittering jewels, those wonderful keepsakes, those precious memories. When it comes time to move that jewelry to a new home, then protecting those jewels must be a priority. Read on for some considerations when packing jewelry.
First and foremost, decide what goes on the truck and what doesn’t. You would be well advised to keep all your exceptionally valuable items with you during a move: your moving insurance will likely not guarantee those items. Check with your mover to make sure what can or cannot come be insured by a mover.
If you cannot keep all your jewelry with you as you relocate, then packing it properly is key. Utilize your jewelry box or case, if you have one, stuffing it with packing paper or newspaper. The idea is to prevent movement, preventing damage, scratches, and jewelry pieces falling and moving around.
Preventing damage to your jewelry is of paramount importance during a move. Not only are you protecting a huge financial investment, you are keeping those sentimental items in perfect shape. Remember to keep your jewelry with you if possible. If you cannot, then pack carefully to ensure your jewely arrives at your new home without a scratch.
