With the school year coming to an end and the weather finally warming up for good, vacation season is almost upon us. It’s high time to start planning your getaway if you haven’t already—passports, hotels, restaurants, and of course, your travel jewelry cases. After all, there’s hardly any point in traveling if you can’t dress to impress once you get there! 

That’s why it’s so important to take proper care of your jewelry while you’re jet-setting. Whether you’re headed to Pensacola or Paris, keeping your valuables safe is a top priority.

So, how do you travel with fine jewelry? Don’t worry—Bromberg’s has you covered. We’re here to help you keep your baubles safe with expert tips, tricks, and must-have accessories for the summer travel season. Andiamo!

Get Your Jewelry Appraised & Insured Before You Go

When was the last time you had your jewelry appraised? If it’s been longer than two or three years—or if you’ve never had it appraised—now is the ideal time to have a professional take a look. That way, you can properly insure your jewelry in case of loss or damage.

No matter how much you try to keep up with your jewelry while you’re on vacation, sometimes disaster simply strikes. Whether your luggage is lost or you lose an earring in the whipping beach winds, the risks are always there. With a proper appraisal and insurance policy, you can recoup your financial losses when you return.

Bromberg’s in-house expert Shannon James has over 15 years of experience as an insurance appraiser. As a Graduate Gemologist and Certified Gemologist Appraiser, her knowledge and qualifications will satisfy your insurance companies’ requirements and ensure that you receive the most accurate appraisal possible.

Schedule your appraisal by emailing Shannon James or calling one of our stores. You can also visit the Service Department in Mountain Brook or The Summit for more information.

Stock Up on the Right Accessories to Safeguard Your Jewelry

Safely storing your pieces is critical so they don’t get damaged during summer travel. It’s not enough to use just any case you can pick up at the local big box store. Fine jewelry requires finely engineered storage solutions, and WOLF 1834 delivers. 

Here’s a selection of our favorite WOLF jewelry storage solutions for your next big adventure.

Roadster Single Watch Winder 

The WOLF Roadster allows you to take your finest timepiece out on the open road in style. These winders count the precise number of rotations rather than estimating them, making them a truly top-quality choice that will keep you sharp no matter where in the world you find yourself. 

They also come with a number of rotation options, directional settings, and more to match your needs. And they look sleek to boot, inspired by the who’s-who of British motorcars like Jaguar, Aston Martin, and Bristol. There’s no finer choice to keep your watch protected and functioning.

Blake Watch Roll

This compact and stylish watch roll can securely hold up to three watches, as well as various small accessories like cufflinks and rings. The roll’s ultrasuede lining and two patented watch guards mean that your watches will never get scratched, scuffed, or scraped. And the hidden jewelry capsule contains multitudes, featuring three compartments for smaller valuables.

Hand-crafted and made with high-quality leather, this watch roll is the ideal storage solution for the discerning gentleman who wants options on his summer getaway.

Caroline Large Jewelry Portfolio

Diamond quilted leather, a supple texture, and gold accents come together to make this jewelry portfolio a truly refined choice for keeping your jewelry safe. The sophisticated design features an earring bar, a ring bar, three zippered compartments, and four necklace holders with a pocket.

But beyond its impressive storage and elegant look is patented technology for protecting your gold and silver. With patented LusterLoc™ technology, the fabric lining can absorb the atmospheric gases that cause tarnishing, like hydrogen sulfide. With this storage solution, you can prevent your pieces from tarnishing for up to 35 years.

Caroline Zip Travel Case

If you’re looking for a slightly more compact version of the jewelry portfolio, meet the Caroline Zip Travel Case. This case bears the same beautiful, 50’s-inspired design of soft lines and comes in the same four bold colors (Ivory, Rose Quartz, Black, and Red). But the dimensions are jewelry-box-inspired, featuring seven ring rolls, four compartments for jewelry of your choice, and three necklace hooks with pocket, as well as a mirror.
