I have never had to remove any jewelry – and I have never even beeped. Gold doesn’t beep through metal detecters – it is searching for heavier metals I think!

Both my engagement ring and wedding band are platinum and I’ve traveled a lot with them and have never had to take them off – they’ve never caused the security thing to beep.

I used to take it off because I didn’t know better, but one of the screeners told me that I don’t need to take them off because they don’t contain enough metal to set it off or something. She said it’s a really bad idea to take them off actually because sometimes the little bowls will tip a lot and the ring can fall down the sides of the belt and get lost! Glad she told me that!

no, you don’t have to remove your ring!

I’ve never had to remove jewelry at the airport…just belts!

Nope, don’t remove your rings. Small amounts of metal like that won’t set off the detector.

i have only ever had to remove a thick silver cuff bracelet, because it was a heck of a lot of metal. i was actually surprised that it set the metal detector off! never rings or earrings though.

I don’t remove any jewelry at all.  Just another reason to lose it or someone swipe it.  I don’t even take my watch off and it’s a hunk of metal.

I wouldn’t take any of it off.  Even my watch goes through undetected so I am def no risking taking off my ring when I go through.

Don’t take it off. Even on the totally weird chance that it would make the metal detector beep you can always show them.
