I’m going overseas for the first time for my honeymoon on a cruise and I have no idea whether its safe to wear my rings or should I take stand in rings? Or even wear my real rings on the ship and keep them in the safe while we’re on the islands with stand in rings? Am really worried I’ll lose them during excursions or swimming or something so I’m wondering what other people did / plan to do?? Thanks! 🙂

We aren’t going on a cruise (we’re going to Europe), but I don’t really get the idea of stand-in rings. If you’re worried you’ll lose them, it’s a waste of money. If you’re worried about getting robbed/mugged, they’re pointless because someone with nefarious purposes doesn’t know if they’re real, so that won’t stop you from being a target.
My plan is that for trips (like our honeymoon) where mugging may be a concern, I’ll leave my engagement ring at home and just wear a plain band. For trips where I’d be worried about losing my rings (like a beach trip), I’ll just leave them at home…I’ll still be just as married, without the worry/wasting of money!

We did not take our rings. We went to Mexico and knew we’d be in the water most of the time so it felt safer to leave them at home and I didn’t want to be worried about them the whole trip. We didn’t bother bringing a stand in ring though.

dianaj17 : I’m worried more because we’ll be doing a lot of activities – snorkelling, swimming, outdoor excursions etc that we don’t normally do in everyday life where they might break or slip off my finger without me realising (so normally I am not worried about losing my rings as I don’t do anything active where I might break / lose them) 😊

glitterweddingbee : We will be taking our rings for our Vanuatu honeymoon, but for when we go to the beach or are spending the day being active/going on hikes etc, we will leave them in the hotel safe.
We have travel insurance. We’ll be right. That’s what it’s there for

I’m bringing a stand in. On a cruise I went on last November I brought a stand in and left my engagement ring at home. Although it is insured, it could not be replaced for sentimental reasons. I’d rather be safe than sorry!

I don’t travel very often, but when I do I always bring my ring. Yes, I would be crushed if it was lost or stolen, but at least I was out enjoying my ring while it happened.

glitterweddingbee : why don’t you guys just get some silicone rings? My husband and I are getting some for when we do outdoor activities like floating.

My husband and I just got back from our cruise honeymoon Sunday, so I was in a very similar boat (literally? Lol) recently 🙂
My hubby and I wore our real rings when we were hanging out on the ship/not doing water activities. We put them in the safe and wore silicone bands for snorkeling/pool/beach/etc 🙂

if your really wanting to bring a ring of some form i suggest getting the silicone ones that are super popular, that way if you lose them it wont be a big deal.
We went to europe and i wouldnt have dared to bring ours, in fear of losing it.

We brought our real rings (Hawaii) and wore them the whole time, snorkleing included. We might have just got lucky but they never felt like they were going to fall off or anything. Took them to the jewlers right away when we got back to have them cleaned.

I take my ring on all of my trips and leave it in the safe if I’ll be swimming at the pool or beach. If we go out on a boat, I’ll bring a ring box and slip it in my purse if I’m swimming or playing on jet skis.
It’s insured and I’m not worried about it.

Best advice I’ve seen yet to answer this question was, if you afford to lose it then take it if not then leave it at home. Now affording something can mean different things, monetary or emotional. It’s up to the owner to choose which.

So this is a picture from our honeymoon… I believe that shows my opinion. I never ever take my rings off for any kind of activity. Only once about every two weeks when I do my nails and let the rings soak in some windex.
Generally we are big into boating and water activities and I am never worried about losing them in the water or on the beach or while water skiing or tubing or snorkeling. But it all depends on how your knuckles are and how your rings fit and sit. My rhr is the Cartier love ring and does feel slippery sometimes. In a way my wedding set never does. It might be the shape of the ring but also my knuckle on my middle finger is less pronounced.
And when it comes to traveling, I don’t want to go places where people want to mug me so badly that I’d worry about it weeks in advance. And I am from Europe and we do wear jewey there as well…
I do believe that there are places showy and blingy jewelry should stay at home! But I bet a honeymoon cruise won’t be that dangerous and lonely and off the beaten path.

I wouldn’t risk your ring’s safety. Swimming in it isn’t the best idea. Maybe you and your SO could wear silicon bands while on honeymoon.
