As summer vacations get back into full swing and restrictions continue to lift, everyone is excited to get back to jet setting. One thing to consider as you pack your bags is which pieces of jewelry to bring on your trip. The idea is to bring the fewest pieces that will work the hardest for you; ones that transition easily from poolside to the captain's table. It is also important to bring "packable" pieces that are road worthy. At Krombholz Jewelers, we have several suggestions for your travel bling.
The number one trend we are seeing this year is opting for moissanite earrings instead of diamond studs or hoops. Although having a pair of diamond earrings is a staple for your wardrobe, adding moissanite earrings for your trips is a great idea. Set in yellow or white gold, moissanites are very bright, very durable and a fraction of the price of diamonds. You can find more information about moissanites on our website here.
Another trend we are loving is the paperclip chain. Not only does this make a great stacking necklace but is perfect for any outfit from beachy to dressy night out wear. We have the chains in varying lengths to encourage stacking with your favorite everyday necklaces. Pairing a paperclip chain with a diamond station necklace, which is also the perfect travel piece, is oh so fashionable and easy to wear.
Because it is important to have items that "pack well," we suggest our Platinum Born platinum hoop earrings which are available in several different sizes. These are diamond cut platinum hoops that are flexible, lightweight and very durable. They give the appearance of diamonds and are always appropriate!
The last category of travel jewelry we recommend is our stylish and budget friendly vermeil jewelry. Vermeil is a term that describes high quality sterling silver that is gold plated. Our vermeil fashion jewelry has bright colored gemstones to create the perfect paradise look. These items are a great option for people who do not want to worry about using a hotel safe for their jewelry but still want to don a great look.
Remember to never pack your jewelry in your checked bag. Bring your jewelry with you in your carry-on in a darling, sectioned jewelry pouch (available at Krombholz for $20). Please stay safe, get back out there and look great while traveling! You have been patient and deserve to have fun!
