If I am working or working out I keep my ring in my locked Jeep. I wouldn’t think twice about taking my ring with me regardless of where I was going.

Bring it.  If you’re concerned about where to leave it when you can’t wear it, you could always get a small safe?

I think you should bring it! Is it insured?

I was concerned about taking my ring back to college with me after I got engaged as well, but not because I thought someone would take it. I thought I would mess it up for sure. But it was a part of me as soon as it was placed on my finger, so I wasn;t going to leave it behind. I think your whole life you are going to be in situatons that you may feel usafe with your things, especially your ring, but people wear their rings all the time in new and exciting places. Be extra careful and perhaps you can even wear it on a necklace around your neck when you can’t wear it on your finger. then you can always know where it is!

I absolutely feel like you should bring it with you, but as others suggested – buy a little safe or locker that you can hide under your bed. My advice is to wear it at all times (and only take it off when it can be left in a safe place for a short period of time)…but you shouldn’t go without it. Oh – and definitely insure it!

Get it insured if you haven’t already done so.

I think you should take it with you.  You are engaged and should be enjoying your new ring symbolic ring!

What does your Fiance think about you leaving the ring behind?  I think mine would be miffed if I left mine behind for that time.

I’ve always been one who thinks jewelry is for wearing.  If I’m wearing it, I won’t lose it.  I’m assuming its a high quality stone?  Nothing will happen to it!  When you’re at work, wear it on your neck (spend some dough on a nice, safe clasped chain).

I would bring it with you.  If you can’t wear it at work, you can always wear it on a necklace (they make them to hold rings, or you could place it on a chain) tucked inside your shirt.  I know I wouldn’t want to be without mine if I could help it!

@alwaysmsh:  I would never leave my engagement ring anywhere but within my possession. If you are concerned about your roomate either find something you can lock it in or like a PP mentioned, lock it in your car when you are unable to wear it. Otherwise, you could put it on a necklace and wear it on that while you work.

  I agree with MerryWidow. If you’re concerned then just get a sturdy chain that you can slip the rings on while you’re at work and keep it tucked under your shirt and you can put them right back on after you get done.

Take it with you and have ring insurance.
