Use straws to avoid tangled necklaces
Slip one end of your necklace chain through a straw and then clasp it. This easy hack will save your necklaces from tangling in storage or during travel.
Further protect by rolling in a t-shirt
Take those strawed necklaces and lay them out on a t-shirt. Slowly and gently roll the t-shirt up with the necklaces inside to protect them even further during travel. When at your new destination, simply unroll the t-shirt slowly to have access to your beloved jewels.
Stick necklaces for more tangle-proof travel
Another great way to store necklaces and other jewelry during travel, to avoid tangling, is to place it between two pieces of plastic wrap. It’s sticky enough that it will hold the jewelry in place (and maybe save you a bit of room).
Affix earrings and studs to avoid loss
So much time is wasted digging through a jewelry box to find the pair to the stud you want to wear. LifeHack recommends sticking those studs through the holes of a button to keep them together. You could stick them in a small decorative pillow to keep them organized for a bit more of a classier display alternative.
Utilize a pillbox to keep organized
Store rings, earrings and other small jewelry pieces in the handy slots of a pillbox. The lids close nice and tight to avoid lost jewelry and pillboxes are available in a variety of sizes to meet your jewelry collection needs.
Fill an empty pill bottle
Stick those studded buttons and precious rings in an empty pill bottle to save some space and keep it all together. Decorate the outside of the pill bottle with a decorative washi tape to keep it stylish and fun.
String bracelets through a toilet paper roll
String your bracelets through a toilet paper roll and clasp to avoid lost and tangled bracelets. For bangles and non-clasp cuff see the next travel jewelry hack.
Slide bangles around a rolled t-shirt
Roll a t-shirt so that it is long, and thick enough to hold bangles and cuffs. Slip these non-clasp bracelets over the t-shirt to avoid them getting bent or lost during travel.
