For well-established jewelry store owners, online sales have been a boon to their brands and bottom lines. But shipping jewelry across the globe comes with risk, and store owners know their reputations are on the line with every delivery. If your store is just getting into the game, there are a few things to know about the process. We’ve gathered a few insights and tips on how to ship jewelry.
Jewelry is expensive, fragile, and sensitive -- a troublesome trio for any long-distance shipping. That’s why it’s essential to keep each individual piece of jewelry secure in sealed plastic bags specifically designed for jewelry. Be sure to squeeze as much air out of the bag as possible before sealing.
Once the jewelry itself is secured, place the sealed plastic jewelry bags in a jewelry shipping container, either cardboard or metal. Within the container, fill in any gaps with bubble wrap or paper to prevent movement during the shipping process. Consider securing the jewelry in a pouch and adding a note for a personal touch that can help boost your branding.
While you now have multiple layers of protection, it’s time to take it even further. When it comes to shipping jewelry, it’s impossible to be too careful. You can now place the smaller jewelry shipping box or container into a larger shipping box or container. Use the same packing technique as the smaller box, filling in gaps with bubble wrap, foam, or packaging paper.
