The Fiance and I are pretty active when we go traveling. We like to scuba dive, snorkel, hike, golf, kayak, etc. so we probably wouldn’t be wearing our rings out on these excursions. I was paranoid about leaving my ring in a hotel since the Fiance bought a nice diamond for the specific intention of giving it to his bride-to-be (he bought it about four years before we met). It had a lot of signicance to him, so I would be crushed if anything happend to it even though it is insured. Fiance suggested we get cheap travel rings to wear in the mean time and I love the idea!
Our wedding colors are dark purple, silver, white, and black since dark purple is both of our favorite colors. I found this ring and I think it will be awesome to travel with:
Our honeymoon isn’t until November, but I fell in love with the cheapy. What do you all think?

That’s cute. I’m not big on the heart shaped stones myself though.

I’m with AsB. Great idea to get a travel ring for sure, but hearts to me are kinda juvenile. Amethysts are cool though!!

i just bought a cheap $10 ring as my ‘travel ring’! its actually supposed to be a pinky ring, but my fingers are so tiny that it fits on my ring finger.

I’m not being judgy, seriously. But I don’t get it. I can understand not wanting to wear your ring for certain activities. But what’s the need for a travel ring?

I don’t think I understand either…and I am probably just naive! Do you have to take your ring off when going hiking and stuff? Is there not a safe in your hotel room?

I think it’s lovely and fun!! And your ‘travel ring’ is a perfect opportunity to try something different.

I think thats a great idea! I’ve heard its not always a smart idea to leave your ring in your hotel rooms but obviously your not going to take it with you on all those activities. As far as the ring goes its pretty and for 20 bucks its even better! haha!

Well I’ve heard a brides losing it while swimming (your fingers shrink when they’re cold,) and you can’t always be sure about leaving it in your hotel room. There’s also the point that tourists are targets for theft and robbery. No joke. It happens all the time, and Americans are known for having much larger bling that Europeans. (The average diamond size in Germany or the UK is smaller than in the US.) I’ll be living abroad for a year and am brining a white sapphire that cost me $30 in case any of the above situations happen.
That ring is lovely and quite a bargain 🙂

I totally understand the need for a travel ring. Good thinking!

LittleAudrey is right. When I travel, I use only my gold band (which doesn’t come off easily) and now only use costume jewelry earrings. You don’t want to call attention to yourself when you travel, and you don’t want to lose something that holds special meaning. I lost a gold earring in Hawaii a few years ago, and it still bothers me.
Rebeltreble, I love your choice for a travel ring.
