When travelling, protecting your jewelry and other valuables should always be top priority. But entering or exiting a country can be tricky because of inspections, security, duties, and the like. Check out below for some important tips to ensure a worry-free flight with your favourite statement pieces:

  1. 1.  Have It Covered
  2. ●  Make sure your jewelry is properly insured. When it comes to your homeowners or rental policy, jewelry typically is insured only up to about $1,000, so if you lose your $6,000 engagement ring, you could be out $5,000.
  3. ●  Be certain that you have worldwide jewelry coverage. Some coverage plans only offer protection in the US – not so helpful if you’re heading to Mexico.
  4. ●  Before you leave, have a current appraisal done on your jewelry and have your items re-evaluated to current values and replacement costs. Then, have your insurance coverage adjusted accordingly. You don’t want to be caught in a situation where you don’t have enough insurance in the event of loss, theft or damage. Source: Jewelers Mutual

  1. 2.  Carry it on
  2. ●  Never put jewelry in checked baggage. Instead, wear it or stow it in your carryon bag. If you wear it, take extra care by slipping a pendant inside a sweater or turning your ring so only the band shows. Source: The Blonde Abroad

  1. 3.  Proof of Ownership
  2. ●  You may not be able to pre-register jewelry if it does not have unique, permanent markings. Canada can apply a sticker to the pieces but that may not suffice if you need to remove it. You should therefore take at least some of the following steps to ensure you can prove prior ownership before you get to the border:
  3. ●  Obtain an appraisal report and a signed and dated photograph of each piece of jewelry
  4. ●  Obtain written certification that the items or jewelry in the photographs are the ones described in the appraisal report.
  5. ●  Bring any other documents you may have that fully describe the item—such as sales receipts, insurance policies as forms of proof. Source: EzBorderCrossing

When choosing a necklace, it is important to consider the neckline of your outfit.  Below are some tips for choosing the right necklace for different necklines:

Asymmetric Necklines
Look for necklaces that aren’t symmetrical, instead a necklace that has its own asymmetry can work, alternatively a long string of different sized and shaped beads can work well. Source: InsideOutStyleBlog


V-Necks

This is a matchy matchy area. Wear a necklace in a similar triangular V- shape that ends just above the neckline. Source: VanityNoApologies


Button Down Necklines

You can get a little creative with a button down neckline. A short, chunky choker peeking out from under the collar creates a brooch-like aesthetic. Or, a mid-length pendant worn over the collar complements the shape and angles of the top. Source: ModCloth


Sweetheart Necklines

The sweetheart neckline is a wide one so the necklace should be able to balance your look. Necklaces made of large, worked metal links that sit flat against the chest and encircle the neck work very well as do necklaces that have an angular appearance, mimicking the neckline as they balance the neckline.

Collared Necklines

The right necklace will not only enhance an outfit but can also truly balance a look.

Introducing the New Collection

PURE CIRCLES

by




Adeline Cacheux is constantly reinventing her work each season using a mix of sterling silver and gold to create Parisian casual chic yet timeless jewelry.  Pure Circles uses clean lines to create pieces that have a rock 'n' roll aesthetic with a touch of sophistication.


Adeline's hoops have a new take on the traditional style. Instead of the earring going through the hole, her design sits on the surface of the ear lobe and face out.
