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 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.

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!
