From getting tangled to losing it along the way, jewelry can be a hassle to bring along with you. These pieces are our picks for best jewelry for travel because they are affordable and versatile.

Often times, travel is not about convenience or comfort. It’s about the experience, the adventure, the spontaneity. This can sometimes mean the journey is exhausting and frustrating, so the last thing a weary traveler wants to do is haul over-packed suitcases on flights, in cabs and from one hotel room to the next.

However, traveling also means trying to look presentable while you are living out of a bag, so when it comes to accessorizing with jewelry, it is important to keep it light and easy. Jewelry adds the final, polished touch to a look, but it is often the last thing a traveler thinks to pack.

A necklace is a great embellishment to an outfit. Choose necklaces that don’t tangle easily or one that can be worn in multiple ways. A unique piece can make a bold statement and be the perfect addition to your look. Add a pop of color or some detailing with one of these necklaces.

Dirty Hair Distraction 

I opt for an updo most often when traveling. It helps hide the fact that I haven’t styled, brushed or even washed my hair. When you pair an updo with a great pair of earrings, it makes your whole look seem a little more pulled together and helps distract from dirty hair. 

Pair these with our list of cute hairstyles that travel well and you’re set.
