There’s nothing more tranquil than an evening on holiday surrounded by your nearest and dearest. If you’re looking for that special piece to add to your travel jewellery box to make your night away one to remember, then we have suggestions on what jewellery to wear on holiday in the evening.

SEMI-PRECIOUS STONES

Swap precious diamonds for a myriad of beautiful stones and crystals in your holiday jewellery. This is a great way to add a pop of colour to your outfits and can help to add a little luxury. Adding semi-precious stones to your travel jewellery box capsule will add a uniqueness and modernity that’s immutable.

 

A colourful drop pendant makes an ideal statement piece day and night, as do semi-precious cocktail rings. Transform your day look with just a few semi-precious pieces. Choose gems that best represent you: pearls for sophistication and beauty, rose quartz for unconditional love and pure joy, or maybe even calming aquamarine to reflect the enchanting colours of the sea.

Gold jewellery will never go out of fashion and will be an excellent addition to your holiday jewellery selection. Gold will glimmer in the late afternoon or evening sunshine. Long necklaces will elongate your neckline and add touch of elegance to any summer dress. If you’re not keen on yellow gold, then why not try rose gold pieces to add a romantic glow to a perfect holiday evening.

 

Our top picks:

- Sea shell shape stud earrings

- Heart and flower charm bracelet

- Blue topaz & diamond pendant (in image above)

HOW TO CARRY JEWELLERY WHILE TRAVELLING

Once you’ve selected your holiday jewellery, it’s important to transport  it in a proper container. Consider investing in a travel jewellery box. They’re lightweight, won’t take up much room in your suitcase and will ensure your jewellery doesn’t get damaged along the way.

 

Travel jewellery boxes can also make cute additions to your bedroom as easy storage. Find one that matches your aesthetic and keep your favourite pieces in there, so they’re protected from dust and accidental damage.

DOES TRAVEL INSURANCE COVER JEWELLERY?

Holidays are for R&R, so we recommend leaving your most valuable and sentimental jewellery at home unless you have reliable insurance to cover them in the event of loss or theft. The last thing you want when you’re enjoying a relaxing week in the sun is the stress of losing a precious piece of jewellery!

 

If you have travel insurance, it can provide coverage for holiday jewellery, but it can be very limited. Jewellery is covered under baggage and personal effects, so if you’re taking a prized item with you, we recommend taking out additional insurance for it.
