I don’t wear mine to the beach or hiking on day trips, but I bring them on vacation because I like to wear my rings at night when we go out to dinner, but I actually would not leave rings in the hotel safe because staff know that people put valuables in the safe. I just hide mine in an inconspicuous container inside my suitcase somewhere. I’ve heard that contact lens cases are good for this purpose.

I left my engagement ring at home when we went to Hawaii for our honeymoon.  I know someone that lost her ring in the ocean so I didn’t want to take a chance even though mine is insured.  We’re going to Las Vegas in a couple of weeks and I plan on wearing both rings there.

I sure do! That’s why I have insurance that covers everything. Rings are meant to be worn and loved…they don’t do anyone any good sitting in a box somewhere. I’ll go into the pool or the ocean with my set, give it a good rinse after and in the ultrasonic for a deep clean when I get home.

Yes, it goes on vacation with me.  It goes in the pool, on the beach, in the ocean… unless I’m doing something where I’m afraid I’m actually going to bash my hand in or be sticking it in tight spaces (like… workin in a car??), then it stays on. It’s stay on at home when I sleep, when I shower, dishes, cook, garden, heck, even while renoing my kitchen putting up dryway, mudding and what not.  I do take it off to paint or at least put a glove on it since that’d be a pain to clean.  Depending on the style… rings just arent THAT delicate imo.  I have a solitare with shared prong band and it’s held up just fine to everyday life and vacations.

I am still in the waiting stage. My bf has the ring, now Im just waiting for the proposal.

I helped pick out the ering and band which are both 2mm. Imho, a 2mm band is a bit too thin for my taste to wear alone. So he got me a second wedding band that is slightly thicker for when I want to wear the band alone. 

This was important to me for when we travel. Id wear one 2mm band for traveling such as mission trips, international travel. 

The thicker band would be for when I am running errands in cities that I dont want to be too flashy in etc. 

I think wearing your band is safe. I would be a bit more cautious wearing an ering vacation etc. Not so much about losing it, but you never know who could be following you home.

 I have always taken them everywhere with me and never had a problem.  I wear them all the time and don’t leave them in the hotel safe as I am very paranoid.  We’ve never travelled to places that are considered scary, have high crime, or “off the grid” so I always felt safe with them on my finger.  And they’re insured.

mariana1114 :  My husband proposed on vacation in Jamaica and wanted me to wear the ring all the time. I’ve since worn it on all of our other trips and tend not to take it off except for bed time. It’s insured.

I wear a stand in band or set because I don’t wear my rings 24/7 typically. I take them off at night, so I wouldn’t want to risk losing them or forgetting where I put them. I worry that being on vacation would get me out of a routine and something would happen  to them. Better safe at home than sorry.

I think it’s much safer in a hotel safe than some sock. I brought mine to our honeymoon and left it in the safe whenever we went on adventures. I feel like it’s much safer near me.

I leave mine at home. The diamond is an heirloom from my FI’s side of the family. All e-rings are sentimental, I know, but my Fiance had a rough childhood and the diamond belonged to someone that he absolutely cherished.

I have a cheap silicone band I wear hiking, camping, or at the beach. If I’m not doing something really dirty or active on vacation, I’ll wear it and then switch with the silicone band as necessary. Also planning a trip to S. America, and I will leave my ring at home then. I get the insurance argument (mine’s insured) but I’m also sentimental – I know I can get a new ring with insurance, but it won’t be my ring.

I wear a plain sterling silver band on my vacation, and leave my ring set at home hidden in a box of tampons (lol). If someone breaks in, they’ll check the sock drawers, but they probably won’t grab my box of tampons.
