Necklaces hanging side by side. Packing jewelry correctly keeps them from getting tangled.

As you carefully tuck lamps, dishes, and other household items into moving boxes, you’re probably wondering about the smaller, priceless possessions. You know, your grandmother’s antique necklace or the tennis bracelet you wear every New Year’s Eve. 

How to Pack Jewelry for Moving (According to the Experts)

Jewelry packing takes extra consideration and care to ensure these special items stay protected when Moving Day finally arrives. 

How to Pack Necklaces

When you’re thinking about how to pack jewelry, start with your larger items, like necklaces. You can use see-through Ziploc bags of varying sizes to keep chains together. 

Not sure how to keep necklaces from tangling? Try the straw trick:

Thread your more delicate items through a paper straw and clasp it. For larger pieces, you can experiment with using toilet paper or paper towel rolls. This will help them from wrapping around each other during transit. 

Pro-tip: Along the way, protect your wrapped necklaces with packing paper.

How to Pack Bracelets

Packing bracelets can depend on how many you have and the range of styles.

Try the straw trick for smaller bracelets to keep them from getting twisted up. 

For larger, chunkier bracelets, you could simply keep them in your existing armoire or dresser and secure the drawers so they won’t open in the moving truck. You could also try a jewelry roll to keep bracelets organized in separate compartments.

How to Pack Earrings, Rings, and Pins

Smaller items like earrings, rings, and pins can be the trickiest items to pack because they can quickly become lost. Picking the right supplies for top-notch organization is critical!

A pill case, tackle box, bead organizer, or jewelry organizer are great storage solutions to keep your earrings safe and sound.

To ensure you don’t lose an earring through the move, attach each set to a button that you place in a small bag.
