Supply List

Before you dive into the packing process, it’s essential to gather all the necessary supplies. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Small jewelry boxes or pouches
  • Bubble wrap or tissue paper
  • Packing tape
  • Ziplock bags
  • Cardboard or foam padding
  • Packing peanuts or shredded paper
  • Sturdy moving boxes in various sizes
  • Permanent markers for labeling

Now that you have all your supplies handy, it’s time to dive into the step-by-step process of packing your precious gems and baubles.

Step by Step – How to Pack Jewelry

  1. Sort and Declutter: Start by sorting through your jewelry collection and decluttering. Donate or sell items you no longer wear or need. This will not only make packing easier but also streamline your belongings for the move.
  2. Secure Individual Pieces: Place each piece of jewelry in its own small jewelry box or pouch. This will prevent tangling and keep delicate pieces protected during transit. If you don’t have individual boxes, you can use small Ziplock bags or wrap each piece in bubble wrap or tissue paper.
  3. Protect Fragile Items: For fragile items like necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, wrap them carefully in bubble wrap, tissue paper or through plastic straws, to prevent damage. Secure the wrapping with packing tape to keep everything in place.
  4. Organize in Layers: When packing jewelry in a box, layer the bottom with padding such as cardboard or foam to provide extra cushioning. Then, place your wrapped jewelry on top in an organized manner. Avoid overcrowding the box to prevent items from getting tangled or damaged.
  5. Fill Empty Spaces: Fill any empty spaces in the box with packing peanuts or shredded paper to prevent shifting during transit. This will help keep your jewelry safe and secure throughout the move.
  6. Label Boxes: Once your boxes are packed, don’t forget to label them accordingly. Use permanent markers to clearly indicate which boxes contain jewelry and which room they belong to. This will make unpacking a breeze at your new home.

Q: Can I pack jewelry in my suitcase for a move?

Q: How do I clean jewelry after a move?

A: After your move, gently clean your jewelry using a soft cloth or jewelry cleaning solution to remove any dirt or residue accumulated during transit. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that could damage delicate gemstones or metals.
