Your delicate jewelry deserves the best shipping. You’re probably looking for the safest way to ship jewelry. Learn how to pack jewelry for shipping and how to ship jewelry for shipping. Find the best way to ship expensive jewelry, and the costs associated with jewelry shipping in this handy guide. 

How to pack your jewelry for shipping

Jewelry shipping is a complicated task. It requires careful handling and can be expensive due to its high value and the risks associated with shipping. It is important to pack jewelry with the appropriate packing material to ensure your jewelry reaches the recipient in a secure manner. Here are some jewelry shipping packaging tips on how to pack jewelry for shipping. 

Clean your jewelry

The first step before you begin the packing process is to clean your jewelry and get it ready for shipment. Gently wipe the surfaces and crevices with soft tissue or cotton. Use gentle jewelry cleaners.

Wrap your Jewelry

Fancy items require fancy and functional packaging. Use bags, padded envelopes, boxes lined with foam to package your jewelry. It not only keeps your jewelry secure in transit but also delivers a memorable experience to your customers.

Pack the Jewelry

Now it’s time to place your jewelry in an appropriate box or envelope, depending on the item’s weight. If you’re shipping smaller items, a padded envelope would suffice. For larger, heavier jewelry, we recommend shipping in a box.

Attach a note

An extra tip to please your customers and keep them coming back is through a simple “Thank You” note to let them know you value their business. The goal is to keep your costs without harming the ultimate user experience.

Use protective material

It’s time to use extra packing material and fillers before sealing your box or envelope shut. You can use material such as bubble wrap, decorative tissue, peanuts, and more for larger boxes and simple plastic wrapping for envelopes.

Seal with tape

Seal your box with sturdy heavy-duty tape suited for your packaging. Use an H-tape method, if necessary, to keep your box secure to withstand the long journey to the customer’s doorstep, especially in the case of a corrugated box.

How to ship jewelry

After you pack your jewelry, there are a few steps you can take to ship your jewelry in the safest way possible.

1. Place in the box

Place your neatly packed jewelry in the shipping box. Ensure the insides of the box are lined with sufficient padding to prevent the contents from shifting in transit.

2. Seal the box

This is a critical step, especially when shipping jewelry. Seal your package with the right heavy-duty tape to ensure your package reaches your recipient in the safest way.

3. Do not label your box

As tempting as it might be to write “fragile” or “handle with care”, this makes the box easily identifiable for anyone with an intention to steal.

4. Choose a shipping company

Finding a good and reliable shipping company is crucial, especially when shipping high-value items, such as jewelry. SFL Worldwide gets you discounted shipping rates from high-quality carriers, such as FedEx, DHL, and UPS, so you know your package is in safe hands.

5. Request signature

The last step is to make sure you request a signature from the recipient on delivery to ensure that the package made it into the right hands. A signature upon delivery request usually checks the ID of the recipient before getting their signature on receiving the package.

What are the best ways to ship jewelry

There are multiple ways to ship jewelry. For smaller pieces of jewelry, a simple padded envelope is sufficient. However, this may be different for high-value items. Here are some of the key points to note when shipping jewelry —

  • Use an insured overnight shipping option via air for high-value jewelry and ensure you request signature and an ID check upon delivery.
  • Avoid shipping your items on Fridays unless the carrier and the recipient is able to guarantee the delivery or acceptance of the shipment.
  • Report any change in tracking information or delivery estimate immediately. Your carrier will then be able to correctly coordinate the delivery.
  • Consider using a professional shipping service, such as SFL Worldwide. We work with some of the leading carriers in the industry and get you exclusive shipping discounts .
  • Ensure your address is firmly attached to the package before shipping away.

Please note that for international shipments, you will have to file extra paperwork to help clear customs quickly. Missing out details can delay your shipment significantly.

Work with a reputable shipping company that can offer you uncompromised shipping results at highly discounted rates, such as SFL Worldwide. Our in-house experts can help you ship your jewelry efficiently to any place in the world.
