Your honeymoon is the celebration of your union, a time for the couple to relish in their marital bliss. As a bride, you probably haven’t come down from your wedding day high yet; all of the glamour and beauty of the day.
Brides always wonder what they will do will their bridal earrings after the wedding day. You can keep your bridal moment going by letting your bridal jewelry become your honeymoon jewelry. It is a great way to take parts of your wedding day ensemble with you on your honeymoon.
Your wedding jewelry, especially if it is costume jewelry, like Swarovski crystals or CZ, is great for traveling because it will look fabulous but you will not need an armored guard to travel with it.
Before running off to your honeymoon here are a few tips on traveling with your bridal accessories (costume or fine jewelry) and making sure they return home with you looking as beautiful as they did when you left.
There are certain things to take into consideration when you bring jewelry with you on holiday. Always travel with the jewelry you aren’t wearing in your carry-on luggage to avoid theft, but there are other hazards to be aware of.
Lotions, potions, and beauty products
Sun protection products are great for your skin but terrible for jewelry. The chemicals found in lotions and sprays can be incredibly damaging to many kinds of jewelry, especially cultured pearl jewelry.
Make sure that all of your products are completely absorbed into your skin before jewelry touches your body.
Is you do get some cream on your jewelr, clean the metal with an alcohol wipe and use a soft cloth to wipe off any residue on your pearls.
Chlorinated water can react with certain metals, causing discoloration and sometimes deterioration.
We suggest that you wear your jewels when lounging by the pool, but remove them and place them somewhere safe when it’s time to take a dip.
Packing jewelry safely
It’s incredibly important that jewelry is packed carefully for travel even if it is costume jewelry. You don’t want your pieces rubbing against each other causing scratches or damage.
Diamonds are the hardest gemstones, so you must be very careful when packing diamond jewelry and be sure not to pack your diamonds with your other pieces.
Faux pearls should be treated with the same care as real pearls, they can chip and scratch if not protected.
Invest in a jewelry roll to ensure the safety of the pieces you’re carrying with you when you travel or place your pieces in individual jewelry bags for protection.
You don’t have to leave all your bling at home. Keep feeling like a bride and let your wedding day accessories sparkle just a little bit longer.
