Can be used for more than jewelry.
I plan on taking this in my carryon luggage. I will use it for more than jewelry since there is more than enough room. A zipper closure would be nice instead of a snap - sounds like an older version was that way. The photos shown on VB website does not really show this folio well. There is a center section that flips which is hard to see.

Perfect to Hold Variety of Jewelry for Travel
I recently purchased this in Go Wild to match my new Grand Traveler bag. I was taking a 3-day trip and flying, so I needed to pack only a carry-on to make my life easier. I chose mostly basic clothes to pack -- blacks, greys and tans -- to use in different ways, but I used this Jewelry Folio to take a variety of jewelry spruce up my outfits. It was so great to have so much choice every time I dressed! I loved being able to have all my things neatly laid out in the clear pockets, and it kept everything separate, untangled and easy to see. I even was able to fit extra things in the larger pockets: a headband, extra Ziplock bags and hair ties. I think you could also easily fit a cord to charge a phone in the big pocket. And the best part was that this folds so flat, and sits neatly on top of clothes in my bag. I was not sure if this was a frivolous purchase for me, but actually, it was so helpful. Can't wait to use it again!

I purchased this to go on a cruise and I found it most useful! I actually used it more as a first aid kit then for jewelry, although I did put in several pair of earrings and loved the ring holder part. It holds more then it seems and I didn't have any problems with closures or compartments. I've ordered two more because I loved the first one so much! The second one I will use for knitting notions and the third for my baby bag!! Thank you Vera Bradley!

I never had the older version, but I love this one. I have a lot of jewelry - especially necklaces and earrings and I always have a ton of trouble figuring out how to pack them - as they always get tangled etc. I have tried a bunch of jewelry travel pouches, but I like this folio the best. This folio is great for organizing my earrings and necklaces. What I especially like is that the little "pockets" for the earrings fit several pairs of earrings so you can organize them by color and it is see thru so you can easily spot where the earrings you want to wear are. They are also larger pockets for necklaces etc. This has made traveling much easier! Although I will note that it might be a little small if you are planning a really long trip - a month or longer and have a lot of jewelry you want to take with you.

Bring back the previous zipper version
I have to agree with hwcarbone. I, too, have the older jewelry folio that zips closed and I absolutely could not do without it. It has been everywhere with me and to many different countries with no issues. I was looking to buy my daughter a jewelry folio but the new version is not acceptable. It does not zip closed and jewelry can fall out. I don't like the magnetic closure especially if one tends to put large bracelets in the folio. It can pop open. I am hoping that you bring back the older version. It is fantastic. Please, please, please bring it back!!!

Excellent Jewelry Folio
I purchased this for a recent trip to Brazil, in Jazzy Blooms print, to match my rolling tote and push lock wristlet. I loved the variety of pouch sizes and the largest pouch allowed for bulkier watches, longer pendants. It didn't take up much room. Folded flat and compact in my luggage. I was very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to others.

Not the best
I recently got this as part of a birthday gift, and I was super excited, especially because we were going away on a trip. I absolutely love the colors and the IDEA of the folio, but find that there are a few flaws that need to be addressed.
First- the snap button on the outside opens up, either because the magnet is not strong enough, or because the the folio has jewelry in it.(well, that's what it is supposed to be used for!)
Second- there is not enough "give" in the fabric that it allows your jewelry to sit comfortably in the zippered compartments.
Third- the plastic on the inside is of poor quality. I have used this just once, one trip of 15 days, and already, the plastic is full of holes and dings, and I carried very few pieces of jewelry.
Would not recommend it, sorry!

Great for Knitting Accessories
I've been searching for a case to keep my knitting accessories and I finally found one! This folio has little zip pockets to keep my smaller knitting items in place. There are larger zip pockets to hold circular needles and larger hooks, as well as 4" knit swatches. What is also fantastic about this folio is that the pockets are see through for quick access. I bought this in the Portabello pattern for my self and my best friend who also loves to knit. The pattern is absolutley pretty. Thank you Vera Bradley for creating versatile products!!!

Multiple Uses - Great Organizer
Besides being an excellent jewelry case.... I also purchased one to store and organize all of my various tech accessories for the iPad and iPhone to pair with the Tablet Hipster it's amazing, fits perfectly in the zippered compartment of the Tablet Hipster (without adding much bulk), so the iPad in case still fits in the flap pocket and magnet works! I never have to waste time hunting for headphones, adapters, etc.

How did I live without this?
This is a must have bag for organizing and packing jewelry for travel. There are a ton of zippered pockets: the six small you can see in the product photo plus another four medium sized pockets, perfect for larger items. It doesn't zip all the way closed, so I wouldn't put anything valuable in the bottom (unzippered) pocket if I was carrying this alone. Since I'll be throwing it into my duffel bag, it shouldn't matter. Overall, in love with this bag and excited to add it to my collection! Highly recommend!
