I am a Bride with 2 WBands (both blessed and given during the Wedding Ceremony)… one is Sparkly & one is Plain.
When I am in situations where I don’t feel comfortable wearing my Sparkly Rings (my ERing also has a lot of Glitter going on) then I just wear my Plain WBand
In this way, I never am in a situation where I go without unless I choose to do so
(Examples… I take my Sparklers off when I do Home Renovations – Painting – Gardening – Deep Cleaning – Baking & Cooking that gets my hands messy – Working Out in the Gym – Water Sports like Snorkelling & Scuba – and when travelling to “sketchy” places)
In most of these situations, I am still able to wear my Plain WBand… which clearly shows the world I am married, and is the norm for most countries the world over (Plain vs Diamonds)
In your situation, line of work, I would suggest something similar. If you are going somewhere you feel that your Diamonds would attract the wrong kind of attention* then leave them locked up
(When we are in a City / Place and going out somewhere not ideal… I leave them locked up in the Hotel Room / Ship Cabin Safe. When I am going on an extended vacation to a Country that isn’t deemed to be as safe as home… I leave them behind in my Bank’s Safety Deposit Box)
As other Bee’s have mentioned you could wear your Rings on a chain around your neck while you are working… giving massages. If I was you, I would probably do this… but only if it was a PLAIN Ring… again a sparkly one might attract attention, and it is a lot easier for someone to grab your ring by the chain (and dangerous to your neck) and steal it than it is to get it off your finger*, or out of a locked Safe.
*NOTE – Re: Rings attracting the wrong kind of attention / being mugged for them
Honestly, I HAVE NEVER understood the idea of wearing a Cz Stunt Double… It may look nice, BUT NO BAD GUY IS EVER going to stop and ask you “Is this REAL Diamonds or is is just Czs ??” as they mug you at knife or gun point. So it makes NO SENSE to me that someone thinks this is a sensible thing to do when travelling. ALL THE BAD GUY SEES IS GLITTER… and possibly a wealthy North American !!
Protect yourself, protect your Rings. Find ANOTHER workable solution.
Mr TTR & I travel a lot… I thought long and hard before our Wedding how I was going to deal with the fact that he had bought me a GORGEOUS Diamond ERing… that wasn’t going to be practical for all the situations we find ourselves in when we travel. I believe I have found the best one.
Sides, it isn’t like we are away in “sketchy” places on all our trips. My actual percentage without my Sparkly Rings is relatively small.
(In the 6+ months we’ve been married, the occasions have been few… and they usually were for just a few hours – Bar Hopping in New Orleans – Snorkelling in St Lucia were 2 times… both times the Rings were locked up in Hotel Room / Ship Cabin Safes. Other times at home were for the various other activities I mentioned)
Hope this helps,
