Pack and ship jewellery in a box
The packaging may vary when you pack and ship jewellery in a box. There might be a difference between packaging a ring, earrings or a necklace. However, the basic idea is the same for all jewellery and the same goes for the packaging materials you need.
Packaging materials for jewellery
You can find the materials below in most stationery and hardware stores. If you are on a budget or when you decide to go for an environmentally friendly alternative, you can use second-hand materials. In that case, it is extremely important that the materials are not torn, perforated or damaged in any other way. The following materials are necessary for an easy way to ship jewellery:
Cardboard boxes: You need 2 cardboard boxes of different sizes. The smallest one should be a little bigger than the item you want to ship.
Bubble wrap: To protect the jewellery in the box. If you don’t have access to bubble wrap, you could use paper or other plastic materials. However, bubble wrap is your safest option.
Cushioning materials: Preferably packing peanuts. If you don’t have those, you can use shredded paper, more bubble wrap or even a towel.
Scissors and adhesive tape: for cutting, securing and sealing the package. If you want to be confident that your box won’t open, it is worth to invest a bit in high-quality

How to pack jewellery for shipping?
In most cases, the jewellery that you want to send is already in a box from the store. If that is the case, make sure that you close it with tape or something else and keep in mind that this is not one of the boxes described in the process below. If this is not the case, place the jewellery in a box that matches its size before you start. You can also check out our article with packaging advice.
Take the smallest box and fill it up with cushioning materials
Then place the jewellery and cover them with more cushioning materials and close the box.
Carefully shake the box to see if there is anything moving or making a sound.
Then fill up the second, bigger box with cushioning materials. Place the first box in the second box and fill it up and cover it again with Cushioning materials.
Close the box, tape it and check one last time if you hear any noise when you gently shake it.
When you live in Poland, Sweden or Spain, don’t forget to print the label that you receive after placing the order when you pack and ship jewellery in a box.
