I tend to leave my ring home if I am going to beachy places, because I don’t want to loose it in the sand or water and didn’t feel comfortable leaving it in our hotel room. But I’ve taken it to other destinations, such as Las Vegas, NYC, etc, because I knew I wouldn’t need to take it off. To me, the activities I plan on doing on vacation determines what I do with my ring. Do you have jewelry insurance? 

Also if I leave it home but still want to wear a ring I wear a ring from qalo.com. I like it.

I always where my rings. Especially on my honeymoon, it just wouldn’t feel the same wearing fake rings. I think you’ll be fine.

If the rings are not insured, I’d probably leave them at home though.

Our honeymoon was hiking at Yosemite and driving up the Pacific coast highway, so I opted to wear a non-expnsive but nice looking band. I didn’t want to get my ring all dirty while hiking for 6 days and I was worried about not wearing it all the time and somehow losing it if I kept switching. 

However if your rings are insured and you don’t plan on doing anythign that may break a prong, I would wear them! I wear my rings literally doing everything else.

krayon:  If I am doing anything active, I leave my engagement ring at home. I have a plain platinum wedding band that I don’t take off. I travel for work frequently and wear both my e-ring and my wedding ring, as I am not swimming or climbing mountains at work ๐Ÿ˜‰

krayon:  Are yours insured? If so I’d say take them.

If you are uncomfortable, you can always turn your center stone inside while at port or something like that. Utilize your room safe too if you want to leave it in the room.

I instantly stopped freaking out about losing/damaging my ering once we had insurance.

I always take my rings. Your husband will be with you, so it’s unlikely you would get robbed. Especially on a cruise

krayon:  I’ll be wearing just the band when we travel (even when we aren’t married yet) because the engagemetn ring is a little too flashy and we don’t want to call attention to ourselves when abroad.

You are not going to get robbed on a caribbean island unless you are wearing the Hope Diamond on your finger.

Losing them in a pool is a legitimate concern but you would be worried about that at home too.

Don’t do anything on your vacation that you wouldn’t do at home and you are going to be fine.

On a cruise ship, I would be much more worried about norovirus than about being mugged for my ring.

My Fiance and I are going on an Alaskan Cruise soon for our honeymoon (two weeks!!) and although our rings are insured we’re opting to leave the more expensive rings at home. Fiance will wear his tungsten management ring and I’m just wearing my wedding band. I could never replace my e-ring even if it’s insured. That’s totally us tho!

I’m a totally paranoid person but I am going to an all inclusive and taking my rings. I’ll keep them in the safe when we are at the beach and wear them the rest of the time. I couldn’t leave them at home. If be paranoid with the what if scenario of our house being broken into.

krayon:  I wouldn’t wear jewelry snorkeling or scuba diving. It attracts the fish! 

Fiance tells me most dive masters will insist all sparkly jewelry be take off before getting in the water.

I would keep it in the safe in your room whenever you disembark the ship.

My friend said she bought a cheap set to wear and locked her real set in her safety deposit box at the bank. I’d go crazy without my ring but that’s another idea for some.
