I haven’t been bringing my rings on trips.  I don’t think diamonds are as common in other countries as they are in the US and I just don’t want to worry about losing them when I’m traveling.  I don’t wear mine often though so it doesn’t bother me as much to not have them on me.

If I’m somewhere “dangerous” alone… I’ll turn my solitare around so only the plain band is showing but I haven’t really traveled out of the country to answer that.

I’d get them insured no matter what. That’s the first thing I did… it’s so inexpensive.

If you do buy a stand-in ring, don’t get one that looks like a diamond! Thieves don’t know that it is a stand-in and will go to all sorts of trouble to take it away from you.

I personally do wear my rings when I travel. If I am uncomfy (never happened),  I would lock them away and just wear my plain wg band. 

If you’re worried and you sound like you are, leave them at home and take pictures of them on your hand to show them when you visit. Problem solved. 🙂

I have my ering insured, but I never wear my ering while traveling. I don’t want to attract unnecessary attention or have to worry about losing it. I do wear my promise ring or my 5 stone ring when I travel.

No, you do not bring your jewelry.  Don’t even wear a fake.  No bling, = no temptation.  Don’t do it.  Even the travel advisory guide on the cruise ships tell you to leave your jewelry in the safe onboard.

I got a 2mm plain sterling silver band to wear from Amazon for $0.99. It shows that I’m married, and I don’t have to worry about being a target for thieves. I do my best to downplay myself when traveling.

1. It takes 5 min to get your rings insured if you have an appraisal.

2. Berricle has stand in rings in a size 4, which would not be too big for you.

I never wear my rings while traveling. I usually don’t wear any jewelry when I travel because I don’t want to lose it or attract attention, especially in Mexico.

I have free lifetime replacement of my ring through my jeweler. I debated if I would bring them on our Caribbean honeymoon or not. I decided to bring them because what’s the point of having something beautiful if you can’t enjoy it! If it fell off in the ocean I can have it replaced! I would be just as nervous leaving it at home unattended and feel more comfortable having it with me. When I did something really adventurous like zip lining I left my ring my hotel room vault.

For me, it depends on the destination. If I am going to a city where I will mainly be like seeing shows, or going to museums, or having nice dinners, or just sight seeing then I will wear my ring. If I am going to some place like Hawaii or another place where I’d be outside doing stuff (like the beach) or if it’s a generally “bad” area or would be inappropriate to wear a blingy ring, then I have a few spare rings to choose from; a 4mm gold plated tungsten band that is just plain looking and a rubbery ring from QALO.com

Id leave them home In this case. If you were going to be on a resort id wear them. But a place that used to be dangerous?  No way I’d do it And I trabel a lot.

Mrs_BunInTheOven:  

 

Rather you are travelling or not, I think it’s very important to have the set insured. It’s super inexpensive. I was expecting more but it cost me just under $200 a year as a rider on my house insurance. 

I will miss my set a lot when I go on honeymoon next year but…. I most likely will not wear it… especially it’s so loose on my finger…

I would never wear my diamond in Mexico, especially in actual Mexico (not a resort).

Mrs_BunInTheOven:  I have always worn my rings. When I am out on the street in a poor area, I flip them around so the diamond is on the inside. I have never had a problem and my ring isn’t exactly modest (1.3 carat)
