Unlike TVs and large pieces of furniture, jewelry is unlikely to fall over and become damaged. However, when moving to a new home, it is still extremely important to properly pack your jewelry to keep it organized and prevent it from becoming lost in the chaos. Thankfully, you can properly prepare your jewelry for moving day with a few basic supplies:
If you do have jewelry boxes, these are the best option for you to pack your jewelry collection in. All you have to do is wrap the box in its entirety with packing paper or bubble wrap to cushion it from any physical shifting around it may experience while in transit, and then secure that packing paper or bubble wrap with packing tape. If you have a large collection, you should make sure that all of your jewelry boxes are collected in a single moving box that is clearly marked to make the packing and unpacking process much easier. If you don't have a box for your collection, you can wrap and pack individual pieces using the instructions below.
Necklaces and Bracelets
When packing your necklaces and bracelets, the most important thing that you need to do is prevent them from becoming tangled. An easy way to accomplish this is to thread them through straws and clasp them in place. You can cut the straws down to size for smaller necklaces and bracelets. Once all of your necklaces and bracelets have been strung through, you can then wrap them up in packing paper and secure it with packing tape. These wrapped packages can then be packed together in bags or boxes for easier transportation.
Rings and Small Pieces
For rings and other small pieces of jewelry, you'll want to keep them in small containers that prevent them from shifting around. You can use a daily pill box, glasses case, or a similar container to hold them in place. Be sure to wrap these things in packing paper and secure it with packing tape to prevent these containers from opening while in transit.
Earrings should be kept together, and the best way to accomplish this is to thread them both through the holes in a button. Be sure to secure the clasps to the back to prevent them from falling off. Alternatively, you can keep earrings in a daily pill box in a similar manner to how you packed your rings as described above.
