5 Pieces of Jewelry to Take On Your Summer Vacation (and What to Leave Behind)

Besides Dad, grads, and weddings, June happily marks the formal kickoff of summer. Summer for many means relaxing getaways and dream vacations. So what kind of jewelry should you pack for your summer vacation? Because clothes and toiletries are usually the obsessive focus of our packing worries, jewelry for the vacationing woman is usually completely forgotten or pushed to the back burner. Fret no more – the following recommendations will cement your jewelry packing decisions, ensuring you are bringing along exactly the jewelry best suited for your summer trip and leaving behind the pieces that will bog you down. Keeping in mind that travel advisors are constantly reminding us to pack light and be wary of being victimized when visiting a new city or country, do take costume jewelry with you and let your high-value jewels and gems remain nestled in the safety of your jewelry box at home.
