Yes, of course you should wear it. Your Fiance bought it for you to wear and enjoy.

Just use some common sense…lock it up at night or when you can’t wear it. Once I was about to take a shower, but forgot to take off my ring, so I left it on the sink (DUMB DUMB DUMB!!!) I forgot I left it there and when I realized I didn’t have it I FREAKED. Thank god it was fine…I’ve never done that since!

I don’t have any fears of it being stolen, but I’m still careful

You’re going to have this ring for the rest of your life and you will constantly be in situations where you could possibly lose or damage your ring. That being said, you should learn to take care of it now. As long as it’s insured and you don’t leave it behind in the bathroom (and it’s properly sized) I don’t see why it would be an issue.

I would take it with you. If you do take it with you I would suggest turning the stones towards your palm when walking around campus at night. Unless I’m wearing gloves I tend to do that to prevent people wanting to rob me. Then again I do attend college on a campus where I have to worry about taking pepper spray with me for night classes.

Bring it with you! I would hate to leave it behind.

I’m going to go against the grain here- if you’re living with a stranger and are regularly in situations where you wouldn’t be able to wear your ring, I’d leave it locked up safe at home somewhere, even if it’s insured.  If you said you’d wear your ring all the time, I would say take it, but if you’re going to keep working in a situation where you can’t wear it to work and can’t put it on a chain around your neck, I wouldn’t leave it in a room with a stranger, even in a safe (no safe you’d be able to get for your dorm room would be large enough to prevent it being taken, and once it’s out of your sight most small safes are very, very easy to open).  I also believe jewelry is for wearing, and I wear my ring 99% of the time I’m out of the house (only excepting being boxing class, where I’d either damage the ring or break my finger hitting the heavy bags), but if you have to leave it where you live, and you live with someone you may or may not be able to trust, I’d never leave something that valuable with someone unknown to me.

I would insure it and bring it with me. I wouldn’t be willing to leave it behind and not wear it most of the time.

I would bring it and never take it off. Unless your job requres you to dig bear handed, I’d just wear it. And have insurance whether you take it or not!
