I would leave it at home and get a cheap band for the week.

i’m leaving my engagement ring at home, and i’m going to a well-touristed area that isn’t known for muggings. i just worry about losing it and would feel safer with it at home in a box in my underwear drawer. or something like that. if mugging is a real concern, it seems that your ring would be much safer at home unless your place has been broken into a lot.

Leave it home and replace it with a simple gold band or nothing at all!

It’s better to be safe – you don’t want to put your ring in danger but even more so you don’t want to put you and your Fiance in danger. (Some muggings go wrong)

I would leave it at home and get a cheap band or something to wear while you are there. Better safe than sorry!!!!

Don’t replace with with a big CZ rock!  You’ll still be susceptible to muggings.

Colombia sounds like a dicey place if you don’t have someone local with you. Normally i say wear the jewelry and quit being so paranoid, but i don’t know about this time. If you do bring it, just turn it into your palm when you’re walking around places so it just looks like a gold band. And if you have to slap someone, it’ll totally cut them!

I hate the idea of not wearing my ring for a second.  But I wouldn’t even wear any jewelry, fake or otherwise there.  I’ve heard too many horror stories.  Not in Columbia, but in countries with similar reputations.  They don’t know what you’re wearing is fake, so I wouldn’t give them the opportunity to figure it out!

Yeah, I was totally going to come on here and tell you not to worry, but Columbia is slightly different matter. Chances are that you will be fine, but there is no need to invite trouble in a country that struggles with personal crimes (buggings and kidnappings).

I would leave it at home and just get a simple wedding band.  You def don’t want to get a “fake” engagement ring as a replacement, you could still get mugged for that.
