One of your most important outfit changing accessories is jewelry. If you are attending a destination wedding, (my own was such in Vero Beach, FL), you don't want to fly or travel with your heirloom pieces. I lost a gold and pearl clasp from my favorite strand of pearls in Chelsea, NYC. It was my favorite piece! Leave those treasures at home and opt for some gorgeous jewelry which are so much more beautiful than outdated "paste". Take a look at these pieces from Zirconmania:

|Tiffany's Victoria Diamond Necklace and Couture Cluster Zirconite Necklace. Can you tell the difference?|
Handcrafted and set in a style similar to necklaces found at Van Cleef & Arpels, 5th Avenue, and Tiffany & Co. (see photo above), these give you the look of real diamonds without the fret.

|Diamonds are forever...in a way.|
These quality pieces are made in the USA and are perfect for women like you and me on the go. The definition of elegance is being at ease with one's adornments. You don't concern yourself with your jewelry. Just wear it and glow!

Traveling With Your Jewelry
As you can see, some of these necklaces are very delicate and can tangle easily if stored in a velvet pouch. I keep all of my jewelry neatly in place with a MagBag Zippered Jewelry Case. It holds everything from my earrings to my bracelets and necklaces in place via magnets but is flat enough to stow in an overnight bag. Really makes it easy to keep everything organized and ready to go at a moment's notice.

So there you have it! Summer travel jewelry needn't be boring or plain. Quality, handmade pieces like these look just as exquisite as the "real thing" without the worry. I'll be continuing this series of "Season in The Hamptons" with more travel tips and tricks for your best vacation ever!
