impatientwaitingbee :  I have stand-in rings. Just cheap ones I picked up at Nordstrom Rack. They are toned down too, just pretty bands.

sarathemermaid :  make sure you have a box with a lock in it. I know of people traveling and hotel staff (or airplane staff) going through your personal belongings and things going missing from their rooms and it would suck to take the dummy ring and leave your ring box behind in the room for safe keeping and something happening to it!!! 😱

We just got back from Jamaica last weekend and I purchased a stand in ring for the trip. I was worried about having it stolen or losing it, or having it get really dirty from applying sunscreen and being on the beach. I’m getting married in Jamaica next year so I will definitely be bringing my read ering but I’ll likely keep it in the hotel safe until my  wedding day. 

My ering is on the left, my stand in on the right (it now needs a good cleaning from all that sand and sunscreen!):

I bought a plain 2.5mm white gold band that I use for travelling and I leave my real set at home. I think I paid about $110 on blue nile. When we travel we are on the go constantly and I like not having to be mindful of a ring. I considered wearing no ring while traveling however I’m so used to wearing it that when I don’t wear it I get that feeling in the pit of my stomach that I lost it until I think about where I put it.

My ring has been on 2 continents and 7-8 countries so far. In the last 5 month I’ve been wearing it, it’s been skiing and swimming (pool and ocean) and boating and in the spa and in the gym and it’s partied through same major clubs. It’s been hiking and shopping and walking the dog… I never take it off, it has the perfect fit and all is good. 

It’s insured twice but I am not worried. It’s ment to be worn and I love it too much to not wear it. And I don’t think about it too much. It’s just there. And to quote one of the PPs: its a statement ring, too. 

I simple never felt that there was a situation I would feel uncomfortable wearing it.

I just can come up with canyoning. I would wear any rings doing that 😄

I would leave it at home or go for a moissanite ring, Still looks nice to wear, but wont hurt to loose as much as your diamond..I have always travelled with my rings btw, didnt really see anytime on my vacation where I ran the risk of losing it

impatientwaitingbee : Yes its true, you should be able to get a 1ct for less than 1k, and they you can still wear it on vacation to swim and shower and things because the stone wont cloud up. I wear a moissanite wedding set so I know you wont have any problems travelling with it and it still looking nice

I have a stand in set for traveling. Mostly because of the sentimental value and if we’re somewhere hot my fingers swell so I tend to take my rings off. 

I’ve actually got a couple dummy sets because I fell in love with the first set I bought. 

I haven’t spent that much maybe $80 at most on a dummy set in case it does get stolen. They’re also a size bigger because my fingers swell.

I initially got a thin rose gold-plated band from Etsy to use as a stand-in for the gym, kayaking, etc, but soon after switched to silicone bands. They’re SO comfortable, and at around $10, I couldn’t care less if anything happened to them. I wear my real ring everywhere else but kind of nervous about our honeymoon — I also would feel weird leaving it at an airbnb or hotel.

My ring doesn’t have a lot of monetary value so I don’t think I’ll have to be concerned about anybody stealing it. Usually we travel to safe countries in Europe, so robbery isn’t all that likely anyway. If I was doing a beach holiday, I would probably just leave the ring at home to avoid damaging it or losing it in the water. But most of our trip are city sightseeing trips and I don’t see the difference between going grocery shopping in my hometown and going to a museum somewhere else.
