I’ll be honeymooning in St. Lucia in 2 weeks, and I want to wear my e-ring and wedding band while there. I’m not sure it’s a good idea, however, to wear my rings to the beach (in the salt water). I’m not afraid of losing diamonds- I have a plain solitaire and a channel set band- but I don’t want it to get all nasty.
My honeymoon suite has a safe in it….are they safe to use? I’ve never used one before. Would you trust that your rings would be safe in a room safe? Should I just wear my rings since there isn’t a risk of losing diamonds and they are set in platinum?
Suggestions and stories please!!!!

The safes are safe (ha) as long you don’t forget your password.

We always use the safe, thats where we put extra money, passports, cell phones, etc. Never have had any problems with the safes either.
I also left my rings when we were at the beach – I’ve heard of waaay too many girls losing their rings in the waves 🙁

I left my rings, passports and $600 cash in the safe – it was fine. We were worried before we got there that it would be a problem but since its bolted down and you make the password, I’m sure only management can unlock it if there is an issue.

Many safes now you set the code. We used ours for everything, money, passports, cameras etc when in Bali

The safes are safe but so is wearing your ring in the water. My e-ring was pretty gross by the time we got home from our honeymoon, but that was entirely from sunscreen. You are going to be wearing this ring for the rest of your life – don’t sweat getting it a bit salty.

The safe was fine for us. And like Heather said above, only certain employees were able to unlock it. We used the same pass code the whole trip, but one day it wouldn’t open so we had to have them come unlock it. It’s not just a key they have laying around to open them… it was a security guard that came by with an electronic device that resets and opens it. So I’d say you’re probably fine to use the safe. =) But I left my e-ring in my safe at home when we went on the honeymoon and only wore the wedding band. I just felt more comfortable that way in regards to my own safety, not necessarily the safety of the ring.

We always use the room safe for various electronics, cash and documentation when we go on vacation and had never had a problem. Especially if it’s one where you set the code yourself, I have no issue with them.

The safes are safe but your ring would be perfectly fine in the salt water too. Salt water won’t hurt it one bit!

Thanks ladies!!!! I’m so glad to hear that the safes are safe (hehe)!!! I was afraid that there were horror stories out there of employees of resorts/hotels stealing from the safes. I definitely feel better about using them now. I probably will wear my rings most of the honeymoon, but there may be off island excursions that we go on that I may not want to risk endangering my rings. Thanks so much for the info and putting my mind at ease!!!! 🙂

We stayed at La Toc in St. Lucia and used the safe for cash and passports–no issues. As far as your e-ring goes.. I didn’t bring mine, I felt ‘safer’ leaving it at home. I did wear my wedding band (that has micro pave diamonds) and didn’t have an issue w/sand at all, I also never took it off. I didn’t want to worry on my honeymoon about my e-ring, even if it was in the safe. I brought a fake e-ring along and was not a worry bug =)
