Tips for Keeping Jewelry Safe in your Gym Bag: Featuring the Jord Cora Polaris Timepiece

I’ve been training Brazilian jiu jitsu for almost eleven years now and over time, I stopped wearing jewelry because I found it was hard to keep track of it in my gym bag; it was getting bent or damaged in my purse and I was losing earrings. I looked online for a reasonably-priced, small, slim hard-cased jewelry case for my gym bag but so far, no success (I’m sure someone will chime in with the perfect product after this post though)!

I was contacted by Jord (pronounced yode) to feature their beautiful wood watch for a $100 e-code giveaway so I thought it was the perfect time to show you how I’ve been keeping my jewelry safe and intact in my gym bag. All you need is two safety pins, a small, soft washcloth and a hard eyeglass case.

Use the safety pins to attach hanging jewelry like the Jord Cora Polaris and the Sincerely Silver monogrammed bar necklace and pop your earrings through the cloth to keep them in place. You may want to poke a safety pin through the cloth before the earrings to make sure they slip through easily and don’t bend.

Roll the cloth up, put it in the eyeglass case and you’re good to go! No more damaged jewelry!


I was so excited to receive this watch to feature on my website! Most of my accessories are sporty and it feels nice to wear something more feminine and beautiful. Sometimes we get caught up in the jiu jitsu lifestyle and we forget to treat ourselves well outside of the gym.

Finish & Care

The natural walnut is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils. The Cora is splash-proof but should not be submerged in water (5 ATM).

Lemon or orange oil extract is best for cleaning the natural wood. When storing this timepiece, avoid extremely hot, cold, and excessively dry/humid environments.
