Accessories: Stow London’s Hester small travel jewellery box

by Sasha Wilkins on March 7, 2014 · 6 comments


Frequent travellers  learn to pare down the clothes they pack, because it’s extremely unlikely that they will wear even half of what they take along with them. The same with accessories and jewellery, which is why I rather love this small travelling jewellery case, in excellent quality leather, from new-ish design house  Stow London.

It’s just big enough to fit a few key pieces: a brooch, statement ring, a necklace and some earrings. I like that it has a built in drawstring, so that if you open it upside down, or are jolted, perhaps on a plane, nothing can fall out when you unzip it. It’s the perfect size for a carry on, or even your handbag when out and about.

The tiny little leather envelope for earring butterflies or, in this case, a tiny Dachshund charm (I bought it from Whistles) is a lovely idea.


The Stow London collection has been inspired by, and the pieces named after, 19th and 21st Century explorers: Lady Hester Stanhope, Gertrude Margaret Lowthian Bell, Amelia Edwards and Isabella Lucy Bird and Pauline and Phil Sanderson. The range includes this small travel jewellery box, a travel jewellery case, a travel jewellery roll, a crossbody travel bag/clutch, stud boxes and coin trays.


If you are giving as a present – or even self-gifting –  the leather case can be  embossed with gold foil initials, or a  private message  can be laser embossed to the reverse of the box for a small extra fee.

Thank you to Stow London for giving me this lovely orange one. I’ve filled it with the Victorian seed pearl brooch my mother gave me for Christmas, and my Georg Jensen large Daisy ring, a present a few years ago from the jewellery house, and my christening present charm bracelet. (Made from a gold family watch chain  it only has four charms, but they each mean the world to me.)

The Hester small travel jewellery box comes in pink, stone, blue and orange and is available here.

Oh I was given one in pink, it’s fab and I’ve been using it lots.

That dachshund was a birthday present from Sasha to me a couple of years ago…I’m still waiting for her to hand it over. Oh, and it originally had a chain. PBad says ‘Give it up or else..’

They are beautiful! So well made and the colour is gorgeous! Love the idea of a tiny envelope – brilliant idea that solves so many problems. x

I love a good jewellery travel case – I’ve been searching for a good one for months since the zip self-destructed on my old one. This maybe exactly what I need!
