@BrideofChrist:  I don’t really worry about it.  I mean, it would be pretty shitty if I did get mugged because my ring was more expensive than my beetle and about half of my FI’s Z4.  But for whatever reason I just don’t feel like I’m going to get mugged…? lol

Nope, no concerns.

There’s no rule that you have to have a fancy or expensive ring. If it makes you uncomfortable and/or worried, get a simple, plain band. On another note, I think that coming to a wedding forum and saying that what you’re planning is a “higher form of marriage” is pretty insensitive to the rest of the women here.

Only if I’m in a bad area, then I just the ring in toward the inside of my hand.

I thought that women in your position/situation wore very plain metal wedding bands?  I understood that it is more out of being non-materialistic (like Christ) than anything else?

Nope. Pretty much all my jewelry is big and/or blingy, I’m never worried about being mugged.

@pinkshoes:  

 

Not speaking for myself, but some people have to go into “less-than-desirable” areas as part of their job.  Or, they may have to park in one, as many hospitals and businesses are in downtown areas.  Not always their choice…

@BrideofChrist:  I don’t feel like im in danger of being mugged for my jewelry. The one time I was mugged, I had no purse on me and zero dollars, which was ridiculous. I think its just a chance kind of thing and nobody is specifically targeted because of an item of jewelry (unless you flaunt it perhaps).

@BrideofChrist:  Not at all.  It’s never crossed my mind.

I try to avoid being out by myself when it’s late… or in any isolated/sketchy places.

With that said, my ring is insured… so worst case it is smart to just hand it over if you’re in a situation like that. It’s not worth your life.

If I do find myself in an iffy situation I put my hand in my pocket or turn the ring around to not draw attention to it.

@imabridesmaid:  Good point.  Either way, it’s not hard, if its a rare occasion and you have it on, and dont want to draw unwanted attention, turn it around.  If you’re in that sort of situation all the time, wear a less flashy ring or simple band instead and leave it at home.

After I got my ring I was concerned of going places alone because I was afraid people would assume something about me because of my ring, and target me. Espcially since I’m only 4’11, it kind of makes me easy.

I just try not to think about it. That is a great idea the PP’s are mentioning, just turning it around. I hadn’t thought of that.

If you car is $1,000 and the ring costs half that much you should be fine. I mean I have purses worth more than $500 and no one is running after me to mug me for that or my ring which was much more costly than that.
