I can vouch for Europe yes! I wear diamonds out all the time when I’m there, and so do my family members. One thing I would advise is if you are on a train anywhere hold on to your bags, my aunt had her purse stolen on the train in Amsterdam a couple of years ago.
But as far as rings, I wouldn’t worry.

I don’t know about India though, I’ve never been. 🙁

I would not worry about wearing your ring in India.  Women there are pretty into jewelry.  Engagement rings are not traditional but are becoming a bit more common these days.  I was in India in March and I did not see many people on the street wearing them, but they were in jewelry stores.  Of course, the usual rules about traveling safely still apply…and you can flip the diamond to your palm side if you do feel uncomfortable on the street.  I think you’ll be okay though.  Have a great trip!

Yes people LOVE their jewelry in India. Men and women both wear lots of rings, etc. 

However, I’m always cautious about my diamond ring when I travel to countries where there is so much poverty–I just don’t want to attract unwanted attention. When I went to India last year for work I left my ring at home. But others wore theirs and didn’t have any actual problems.

You already got good advice on Europe.

With India, it is a wild country, but it is pretty darn safe. I backpacked through there for a month, and never once felt unsafe. Freaked out by all of the sound, smell, color, people – yeah! But never unsafe. It is a very conservative country, so you are unlikely to have people touch you or get very close if they don’t have to. If you are doing business and staying in Westernized areas, no problem at all.

On the other hand, there is absolutely nothing wrong with leaving the major bling at home, generally. Even with all of my advice, I’m leaving the engagement ring at home when I go to China, Vietnam, and Japan this summer. All three are safe countries, but I am worried about me leaving it in a hotel or something! I do always wear this cheap band I have and tell any men who talk to me that I am married.

People wear tons and tons of jewelry in India (or at least the wealthier classes).  If you’re going for work and not travelling in dicier areas you are absolutely fine…and engagement rings are increasingly common.  Most people there will be way more blinged out (I swear it’s obscene).  It’s not uncommon to see women with more than one diamond ring on their hands…along with a set of diamond solitaires and gold bangles.
