Never thought of that but it’s not a terrible idea.

Personally, so far when we have been out of town at all I have just not taken my ring off at all. I take it off at night at home, but I do not ever remove it anywhere but our own house, that way if I did misplace it somehow, I’d at least know it is in our house SOMEWHERE… I only ever take it off in the bathroom as well and far away from both the sink and the vents.

So far though, we haven’t gone away anywhere longer than a few days. Now I’m starting to think this “travel ring” thing is a good idea! Curious what other bees will say!

I have an exact duplicate of my ering and i wear it every time i travel since my insurance wont cover my ring if it is lost internationally.

My insurance covers travel, including international, so I don’t worry about it.

Insurance covers my ring internationally as well, but I’ve never had a problem! I just never take my rings off/leave them in the hotel room while I’m traveling. If you’re worried, maybe just wear your band and leave your e-ring at home?

 I also just don’t wear any ring when it’s just not convenient or it can get damaged.

I used the excuse of travel to buy myself a new cocktail ring, which luckily went half off after a month of debating it. I’m going to wear it on my honeymoon for a backpacking trip through Peru and hopefully wear it lots afterwards. If it gets damaged that’s fine as it was only $45 after the sale. It’s a Swarovski Lattitude Cocktail Ring, they come in a couple other colours but I just loved this one!

I intend to wear both my engagement and wedding rings during the honeymoon. Neither look (or are) particularly expensive, so  I needn’t worry about theft. I travel with a little jewellery box, so that’s where the rings go in the evening before bed.

However, I won’t be wearing the engagement ring next week when I go on holiday with my best friend. Simply because it’s horribly hot and the ring gets sooo tight. I’ve bought a cheap Claddagh ring I intend to wear instead. If it weren’t so hot, I’d just wear my e-ring.

We don’t do wear travel rings.  But when I was pregnant I wore a fake ring because I couldn’t fit into my old one.

My mom has always worn a cheap ring on international travel. It’s not losing it that she worries about. If you have nice flashy things it can crate a target for theft. We are going on a cruise in November to the Caribbean and I plan on getting a CZ ring to wear for that. I’d rather be safe than sorry but to each their own!

Initially I considered wearing my band alone, but it’s curved to match my e-ring so it looks silly on it’s own.  Instead I spent $60 on a travel ring.  I wore it on our honeymoon and wear it on any travel internationally. 

My insurance covers my set internationally, but that doesn’t change the fact that I’d worry about losing or damaging it and feel there’s the potential of it making you a target of theft.  

For me it’s more than worth it for piece of mind.

Most hotels have safes. I take my ring off at night, for swimming, and during showers. I put my ring in the safe when I’m not wearing it. I bought a travel safe for rentals that don’t have their own safe. That way if I go to the beach, I can leave our rings in the travel safe.

We like to travel so I have a simple and smaller moissy sterling set I wear.

I would never wear my diamond engagement ring on a trip as a PP has mentioned it is not so much about losing it but moreso about being a target for thieves and muggers as my husband and I like to go off the beaten track a bit.
