Supply List: Before we begin, let’s gather our tools.

You’ll need:

  • Small Boxes or Containers: Opt for sturdy boxes or containers with dividers to keep your jewelry separate and tangle-free.
  • Packing Paper or Bubble Wrap: Wrap delicate pieces individually to prevent scratches or damage.
  • Ziplock Bags: Perfect for keeping pairs of earrings together and preventing tangling.
  • Plastic Straws: Looping necklaces and bracelets to prevent tangling.
  • Cardboard: Keep your earrings secure and perfect for layering.
  • Packing Tape: Secure your boxes to ensure nothing goes missing in transit.
  • Labeling Materials: Don’t forget to label your boxes to easily identify your jewelry collection amidst the chaos of moving.

Now that we have our supplies ready, it’s time to get down to the nitty-gritty.

Step by Step – How to Pack Jewelry:

  1. Sort and Declutter: Begin by sorting through your jewelry collection. Donate or discard any pieces you no longer wear or need.
  2. Secure Valuables: Separate your valuable pieces such as diamonds, pearls, or heirloom jewelry. Consider keeping these with you during the move for extra security.
  3. Wrap Individual Pieces: For delicate items like necklaces and bracelets, wrap each piece in packing paper or bubble wrap to prevent scratches and tangles.
  4. Use Ziplock Bags: Place pairs of earrings or sets of jewelry in small ziplock bags to keep them together and organized.
  5. Straws and Cardboard: Thread necklaces through plastic straws to prevent tangling, and use cardboard pieces to secure earrings and facilitate layering.
  6. Pack in Small Boxes: Place wrapped jewelry into small boxes or containers. Fill any empty spaces with packing paper to prevent items from shifting during transit.
  7. Label Boxes: Clearly label each box with its contents and any special handling instructions. This will make unpacking a breeze once you reach your destination.

Voila! Your jewelry is now packed safely and securely, ready for its next adventure.
