A Honeymooners guide to taking care of jewelry on the move!

It is the season of weddings, of bridesmaids, of bestmen and everything in between. No wedding in India is complete without jewelry. The bride adorned from head to toe in traditional bangles, nose rings and jadau and the groom elegantly dressed in a white suit teamed with a pristine diamond engagement ring. Such are the scenes that unfurl during the wedding season. But what happens to your expensive jewelry when you travel miles for your honeymoon. Just follow these 5 tips to keep your jewelry safe on the move!

1. Sunscreen is good for you, bad for your stones

While sunscreen protects your skin from harmful UV radiation, it often forms a coat on your gemstones and jewellery, which reduces refractive and reflective light. This means that your stones won't look so blingy. The best thing to do would be to leave your jewelry safely locked at home when you’re out in the sun or on the beach.

2. Organization is the key while traveling

When jumbled together, your jewelry doesn't always work as a cohesive unit. For instance a diamond can scratch a pearl or a bracelet can get entangled in a necklace. When storing jewelry for travel, make sure to organize the pieces in such a way that they don’t interfere with each others. You can pack pieces in individual soft cloth pouches or lined jewelry boxes to prevent scratching, dulling, and the dreaded tangling of chains.

3. Safety first

Always check if the hotel room you’re staying in has a facility of safe deposit boxes. Never leave fine jewelry unattended in a hotel room, a rental car, or on a lounge chair—even if you’re just popping over to the bar for a mojito.

4. Shopping for something new - Do your research.

Naturally you would have the urge to splurge on some brand new jewelry. Most vacation destinations are also prime shopping destinations. Always make sure that you are buying jewelry from a jeweler thats been in business for several years. When in doubt check the retailer’s reputation online and also check the store’s return policy. Most reputed retailers offer a 30 day money back guarantee wherever you are.

5. Make sure your jewelry is adequately insured.
If you decide to bring an expensive piece to your honeymoon like your wedding ring, a family heirloom or a priey watch consider consulting an insurance agent to ensure a fair replacement if the article is lost, stolen or damaged.

Follow these 5 simple steps and have a worry free honeymoon. Always remember to clean, organize and polish your jewelry from time to time. This will keep your precious stones safe and free from damage.
