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
