Travel Jewelry Organizers to Buy
Travel Smart by Conair Jewelry Roll Bag
Use a Jewelry Roll Organizer
A jewelry roll organizer makes traveling with jewelry simple. These organizers are affordable and will allow you to pack all of your items into separate compartments so that nothing gets tangled together.
If you’re trying to figure out how to pack jewelry in a carry-on, the roll up organizer is a great option, because it won’t take up much space. Another great feature of the jewelry roll organizer is that it packs easily in your suitcase, but it can be unrolled and hung up in your hotel room. All of your jewelry is on display for when you want to accessorize outfits on your trip.

Vlando Small Travel Jewelry Box Organizer
Travel with a Jewelry Box Organizer
A small jewelry box organizer is a smart purchase for traveling with jewelry, because it provides both organization and protection for your valuable items.
This is one of the best solutions for how to pack jewelry for air travel, because this product has holes for your earrings and inserts for your bigger jewelry. It makes transporting your jewelry from one place to another simple as well with its zipper seal.
According to TFG readers, these are the best travel jewelry cases to keep your belongs save and secure during your trip!
Drawstring Jewelry Pouch by Marisa D’Amico
Protect It in a Pouch Jewelry Holder
If your jewelry is low maintenance, use a soft pouch. This can be an easy DIY project: just get some fabric and tie it up with a bit of rope or even a shoelace.
However, you can also purchase an affordable jewelry pouch online. I’ve traveled with these in the past, because I like the idea of a soft pouch around my favorite jewelry.

Fashion Smart Pill and Vitamin Clutch
Organize Jewelry in a Pill Case
Nothing beats the seven-day pill box when it comes to traveling with jewelry. You can even arrange your accessories by day and plan out your jewelry with outfits ahead of time if you choose. Pill cases are small, strong, and can keep all of your jewelry ultra-organized.
This one comes in a pretty zippered case, but you can get a plain plastic pill planner.
If you are traveling with prescription medication, our readers offer the best advice!
DIY Travel Jewelry Organizers
DIY Jewelry Roll with a Travel Towel
If you don’t want to purchase a jewelry roll organizer, you can make a DIY jewelry roll and keep traveling with jewelry simple by using a small travel towel.
Arrange your jewelry neatly, and then roll the towel. Tie it down at the ends and voila — you’ve made an easy DIY jewelry packing case!

Vacuum Seal Your Jewelry
Another DIY option for organizing your jewelry is to use plastic seals, like these Glad Press N Seal wraps. This is a great solution for how to keep necklaces from tangling in a jewelry box as well, because it will keep everything in place.
Place all your accessories on one sheet, then cover with another plastic seal and press it down. Who knew traveling with jewelry could be this organized?
Use these tips to stay organized while traveling!
Keep Necklaces in Straws
Reusable plastic straws may be the perfect thing to help you pack your necklaces. Learning how to travel with jewelry can be complicated, because necklaces always seem to get tangled in transit.
Avoid tangling by inserting half of the necklace into the straw. The firm plastic line will keep it in place, and you’ll never have to untangle your necklaces again!

Organize Earrings in Buttons
Buttons are a great way to keep earrings organized. Insert the pair into a button and keep them together to prevent loss. This is one of my favorite tips for traveling with jewelry!
You can combine this button trick with other organizers, such as the pill case, jewelry box, or jewelry roll. Using buttons on your earrings will be very helpful in keeping those small studs with their match.

Attach Jewelry to Paper Plate
If you have disposable plates, use them to store your jewelry at home or on the go.
Take one plate, insert your earrings in the middle, and make holes for your necklaces and bangles on the side. I’d place the plate in a Ziploc bag or other packing organizer to keep your items safe in transit.

Organize Jewelry with Paper Roll
A toilet paper roll can make a great DIY travel jewelry organizer! Put your bracelets around the roll, pin your earrings by the side, and insert your necklaces around and through the hole. Try to only fill the roll about half full so that it’s not overflowing.
Also, consider using a gallon-size Ziploc bag to place your roll in, so that nothing falls off in transit.

Hi Caz, thank you so much for your feedback! 🙂
Very informative. Travelling with jewelry is very easy just you need extra care because it is so precious and costly. so always keep it with yourself while moving.
I travel with maybe ten pair of earrings, and a change of necklace or two. Each item goes in a tiny ziplock plastic bag, and all the bags go in a fabric pouch. (Currently muslin, I’m on an off-white fabric kick.) This pouch goes in my backpack, so I always know where to find my jewelry.
That’s a great method Phebe! Thanks for the input!
