I don’t think it’s an issue.  If you wear them in chlorine, I would make sure you rinse them off really well. You don’t want any residue from the chlorine pitting the gold.  Ocean water shouldn’t be an issue at all.

@mousepeach:  First of all, I absolutely loved La Romana when I visited! I can see the blue waters still and it’s been a few years. I would probably still take it off because your ring may come off while swimming. I see you’re not concerned with it, so I would say keep it on. It won’t do a ton of damage.

@Fluffmallow:  Dominican Republic.

It should be fine with saltwater, but I wouldn’t go swimming with an expensive ring ever because if it gets lost, you probably won’t find it.  Even if your ring fits snugly now, finger sizes do fluctuate a bit, and considering that water takes away body heat (even warm tropical water), I’d be worried about my finger shrinking a bit.
