lasvegasguy12 :  Pretty ring! And since you’re staying at a resort you have even less reason to worry. We went to Cancun shortly after getting engaged (my ring was $10K as well) and I never once felt unsafe wearing it around, even when we ventured off the resort for a bit, I just turned the ring around so my the diamond was in my palm when we walked through some questionable areas.

Good luck!

sbl99 :  

I personally would be terrified wearing flashy jewellery overseas. Especially in a country with a relatively high crime rate.

I’m guessing you are American… let me assure you that those of us who  actually live ‘overseas’ wear jewellery  and carry expensive handbags and everything. Relatively high crime rate ?  Relative to what ? 

OP of course don’t propose with a fake ring ,  insure the actual ring  and propose with it .

elderbee :  I’m from Australia where the armed robbery rate is roughly half that of the Dom Rep

But you know. Im only chasing facts, rather than  “me and my mates do it fine no problems you’ll be right hey” 

But granted, like I said, I’m cautious when travelling. If OP isn’t, then that’s his choice. But he came here asking opinions so I gave it.

I think if you have to have a fake ring it should be an obviously fake ring – almost something silly.

But personally it’s another vote for using the real ring. Once you are engaged she will be wearing it all the time and face the decisions on when to take it off / leave it on. In 10 years time when you go on holiday she’s unlikely to leave the ring at home…. Basically at some point the ring has to come and be seen by the outside world – now seems like the time 🙂 

Have a wonderful trip.
