Swap out your expensive jewelry with cheaper pieces when you travel

While you may be tempted to flaunt your beautiful engagement ring, wedding ring, or that precious diamond piece to help elevate that vacation outfit, you may want to reconsider packing it all together.

Olivia Starling, founder and CEO of jewelry brand Starlette Galleria, highlights why you should consider swapping out your priceless and precious jewelry pieces for a more affordable, stylish option for your next vacation.

“Your wedding ring is easy to swap out and difficult to replace. When you travel with your wedding or engagement ring, or your favorite diamond pieces, you are risking loss, theft, and damage on one of your most prized possessions. Don’t travel with your real wedding ring or diamonds! Snag some travel jewelry! Get a high-quality, simulated diamond piece that is plated to prevent tarnishing and safe for sensitive skin,” says Starling.

Here are here top four reasons you should consider travel jewelry this summer:

Don’t risk damage
Sunscreen, chemicals in water, and UV lights are all culprits that won’t just prematurely age your skin, but also can age your jewelry. Make sure you are protecting your jewelry by leaving it at home and swapping it out for something beautiful, fun and tarnish-resistant.

Don’t risk loss 
It is quite common to lose track of your jewelry as you take it all off to apply sunscreen to your child or yourself. A few hours go by and you realize that your ring is not on your finger, not on the table, not in your bag.. Nowhere to be found (hello panic-mode)! Make sure this doesn’t happen to you. Get a ring that you love, but if you lose it, you aren’t out thousands of dollars.

Don’t risk theft
Being in a new place makes you more vulnerable than when you are in familiar surroundings. Why would you take one of your most expensive possessions with you while you are vulnerable?

It is perfect for your beach day or pool party
No one wants to risk losing jewelry when you’re out having fun in the sun. Whether you take your rings off to avoid tan lines when soaking in some rays, or before you head out to go swimming in the water, that time shouldn’t be the time to worry about your wedding ring or family heirlooms.
