Make sure you store them securely and do not put them loose in your hand luggage. Pill boxes are an ideal solution for storing jewellery The separate compartments prevent them from rubbing against each other and getting damaged.  The larger jewels that do not fit in the small compartments can be stored in resealable bags.  Optionally, you can put a label on it with the contents.

To prevent your necklaces from getting tangled during the trip, you can thread them through a plastic straw.  This prevents a lot of annoyance and damage.

How do I get the engagement ring through security safely?

If you want to propose to your loved one while travelling, it is of course not the intention that he or she finds out about your plans at the airport. So, be sure to keep the ring in your hand luggage. The baggage scanner alarm system will normally not go off if it detects a ring in your luggage. An engagement ring in your pocket will lead to an extensive search, and you want to avoid that at all times.

If you don't want your secret to be exposed, it's not a good idea to test the rules. So be extremely careful not to keep anything in your hand luggage that would make a customs officer want to search it. Remove all electronics and metal from your case before putting it through the scanner.

To be on the safe side, you can stick a <strong>note on the box</strong> with its contents. If a customs officer sees this note during a check, he will hopefully remain discreet.

Why should you fly through East Midlands Airport?

East Midlands Airport in Great Britain has found a virtually watertight solution to get your engagement ring through customs without your partner even noticing. If you are planning to smuggle an engagement ring with you on a trip, you can email the airport. You will receive an email back with a phrase as a secret code.

In the case, that you are pulled out of the line for an extensive search of your luggage, simply say the sentence and you will be taken to a different line than your partner. If the ring is then retrieved from the luggage, your partner will not see it. In this way you can concentrate on your proposal without any worries with an engagement ring in white gold  or another specimen.
