It can be tricky to know how to store your jewellery when travelling. Earrings are all too easy to lose and necklaces end up tangled in a ball when they're simply thrown together in a bag. So, to save you time and protect your favourite pieces, we're here to share our ranking of the top 10 best travel jewellery cases you can find in the UK from Amazon, Argos and John Lewis.
With jewellery boxes with separate compartments and roll cases with sections designed for storing rings, bracelets and more, you'll keep your valuables safe and undamaged. From large organisers, to mini cases to fit handbags, read on for our recommendations!
A jewellery box is the way many people envision storing their jewellery. Rather than wood, a travel jewellery box is often made from a soft leather-like material on the outside, with lots of different compartments inside, and is fastened with a zip or snap button.
Their solid structure protects everything inside from the knocks that come with travelling, and does a good job of keeping everything in place. Just be aware that boxes will take up more room in your suitcase.

Jewellery organiser rolls, bags and pouches are clever ways of storing your bling in a way that doesn't take up as much space in your luggage. This makes them a better choice for hand luggage, or for those looking to pack light.
They roll out into a mat with pockets and loops for your different types of jewellery, so you can see everything you have with you. But, without the solid structure of a box, they don't offer the same protection.
Ring and earring storage normally comes in the form of a cushioned compartment with slots into which you can slip your earring stems and rings. However, in some cases, you'll find a separate tab for earrings with tiny holes you can poke your earrings through, the same way you would if you were putting them in your ears.
There is also an alternative way of storing rings in the form of a long padded strap. The strap is detachable on one side, so that you can slide your rings on and off without the worry of loosing them inside the case.
If you plan on travelling with a lot of cables, we also have a top 10 suggestion for the best travel cable organisers to keep everything in place.
Bracelets are one of the easier items to store. You just need a simple empty compartment, section or pouch that they can sit without getting in the way of your other pieces. Empty compartments or zipped pouches give you more freedom with regards to what you want to store where, and some travel cases there is even space for sunglasses!
Perhaps the hardest things to store on the move, necklaces need to be kept separate in order for them not to end up in a tangled mess over the course of your journey. To keep them away from each other, look for jewellery cases that use loops on which you can hang necklaces and chains. They usually have an elasticated bag below, so you can safely tuck away any extra long necklaces, preventing them from knotting together.
The last thing you want to find once you have arrived at your travel destination and opened your suitcase is that your jewellery has fallen out of its case. Or worse, that you've lost some of your items. Preventing this from happening means getting a box or roll that you know can be securely fastened.
The most secure fastening is the zip, which is more common on boxes than bags or rolls, and normally covers the whole lid of the box. Other suitable fastening choices include a snap button or a tie, which are not as secure, but will look nice.
