Have you ever misplaced a pair of earrings or a favorite ring while on vacation? It's not a difficult thing to do. With all of the essentials you need to pack up and with all those other tasks on your mind, it's easy to lose a piece of jewelry or two during your travels.

But as easy as it is to have one of those items go missing, it's just as easy to seal and protect them. Break out that FoodSaver® Automatic Bag-Making Vacuum Sealing System and wrap up those valuables before your voyage. On your way back, you can even reseal the items using an easy-to-transport FoodSaver® FreshSaver® Handheld Vacuum Sealing System.

Here are a few reasons why you might consider it.

Keep all Your Valuables Tightly Packed and Easy to Locate
Far and away, the greatest benefit to vacuum sealing your jewelry is that it keeps your goods safe and secure in one location. Most of the time, the reason why jewelry goes missing is because it's packed loosely in a bag in the first place. Packing small items in a carry-on loosely is a recipe for disaster. Instead, your vacuum sealed bag will clutch your items and ensure that they don't get lost.

You'll have to take your jewelry off in the line at the airport, so pack what you can.You'll have to take your jewelry off in the line at the airport, so pack what you can.

Don't Wear Those Items Through Customs
Getting through TSA isn't the most pleasant experience. Belts, shoes, laptops and jewelry - it all has to be taken out or taken off before you can get through security. Some people think it's the best idea to wear the jewelry they want to take on vacation so it doesn't need to be packed and potentially lost. That can turn into a nightmare when you need to take everything off in the line at the airport. Why go through the hassle when there's an alternative?

Use It on More than Jewelry
And while vacuum sealing jewelry is a great idea, don't forget that you can do the same with your other small valuables. Vacuum sealed pouches can protect your items from liquid or help conserve space if your bag is overpacked. Try vacuum sealing your passport, electronics and other items. It may just be the difference between locating or losing those goods.
