So call me paranoid but I can’t imagine travelling with my engagement ring + wedding band…so I bought a fake set for $15. It’s not exactly identical to my ring (my avatar) it’s a solitair in the white (fake) gold ….
Any thoughts on taking my real set with me? I’d be heartbroken if anything happened to it or if it got stolen and I don’t sleep or shower in mine.

Not taking mine, just the wedding band is less expensive to lose.

Not worth the stress, leave em at home.

I’m leaving my engagement ring home and wearing my wedding band

I think it’s a good idea to leave them at home. I’ll have a plain wedding band partly so I can have something I don’t have to worry about when travelling.

@Nessa2012: See, that’s the problem. My wedding band has a lip (I think that’s what it’s called) to fit perfectly under the ring. Won’t look good alone. That’s why I got the faux-set. Here’s a pic of the set….I can even wear the faux-band solo with this one. 🙂

Thanks Bees. I thought I was solo in thinking this. 🙂 Glad to see I’m not the only one after all.

I got engaged on a vacation and didn’t have a problem. So I’ll probably bring it with me

Where are you going on your honeymoon? Personally…if you are worried about taking your real rings, why would you get a fake set that looks like your rings? Me and my Fiance are wearing plain tungsten bands that we got for the honeymoon and any other time we dont’ want to wear our regular band(ex: camping). I don’t want to attract unwanted attention to myself on my honeymoon as well since I will be in Costa Rica. Another reason for plain band, doesn’t attract attention.
Again, just depends on where you are going for your honeymoon really.

CurRently on an almost 4 month honeymoon plus Egypt, Dubai, Asia, and stopping in Australia. There is no way I’d wear my real set as it would get the wrong kind of attention in poorer countries, and not good when bargaining. I didnt really want to be the target of a mugging! I wore a micropave band with no emotional attachment. Was JUST covered by travel insurance. If. I was going to a resort I’d wear both rings, or developed countries like USA, Australia, England etc. It’s been over 3 months honeymooning and I miss my rings so bad. When I get home in a few weeks, putting on my rings of the first thing I’m going to do when I get through the door!!! I look at photos of my rings on my phone, and the forums and I get a bit sad 🙁

I’ll be wearing my rings. But then, I wore my e-ring on vacation and had no problems (since we’ll be going to the same state for the honeymoon, it’s not a big deal).

I wouldn’t wear my future set on the honeymoon. I’d be too darn paranoid. I’ll either get a blingy wedding band from berricle or just a plain band since I probably wouldn’t want to bring any attention to myself and my SO.

I will. But we are honeymooning in the states. If I was worried, I would probably wear only my band.

We’re going to St. Lucia, and my set is pretty blingy, so we’ve opted not to bring my set, and leave it locked in our jeweler’s safe instead. We’re going to be doing a lot of active stuff, including scuba, which you’re not supposed to wear anything shiny for, and I don’t trust leaving it locked in our room safe. So I bought a plain Tungsten rose gold dipped band to wear on the honeymoon, as well as anywhere else my set wouldn’t work. I could even wear all three together (my e-ring and band are platinum, which I think looks really nice next to the rose gold) day to day if I wanted to.
I think my travel band was like $25 on Amazon… I didn’t want something that really looked like my set, since my set is 100% custom and it would’ve been hard to find plus I just don’t like wearing “fake” sets, so I opted to go the plain band route. Plus if I’m in places I’m trying not to attract attention, a fake set like my own wouldn’t really work. Figure if I lose the Tungsten one, it’s not the end of the world, I can just get another on Amazon. But it’s also still feminine and pretty, which I also wanted.

@ReiReiMarried: i understand potential safety concerns if you are going somewhere dangerous, but if it’s really just a concern over losing it you can get a personal articles policy through your insurance company super cheap (you just need to take the apprasial to them for the value). even at home if i’m out late or traveling alone and feel concern, i just turn the ring around
