1) don’t leave your ring in the cabin. It is safer on your finger. 2.) Insure it. Offer to pay, if needed. It will make you feel better. 3) get your ring resized. It sucks parting with it for a few days, but both my parents lost their “a little too loose” rings. For what it is worth, my ring is more flashy than most and I wore it, too loose and uninsured (** I assumed my Fiance was not an idiot and that he wouldn’t bring an uninsured $20k ring to the third world. That was a fun discussion), in more unsafe areas. Nothing happened, other than me making Fiance get insurance the day we got back.

I wouldn’t bring it on a cruise, especially if you know you’ll be doing water activities.  It’s just too easy to lose something.  You can get a cz stand in; I’d recommend getting one in a small size if you do so.  While you’re perfectly safe on a cruise in the Bahamas, it’s just a good idea to have your dummy be in a smaller size.  You could also go with a sterling Claddagh or something.

My knuckle is a bit big, so the ring is sized to fit over the knuckle and the balls keep it from sliding around.

some women have travel rings — replicas of their real ring.  my sis in law, when they went on their honeymoon, dropped off her ring with my grandparents.  they didn’t feel comfortable leaving it in their house while they were away.

I leave my ring at home locked up when I don’t feel comfortable taking it on vacation with us. If we do go on vacation and I take it off to do an activity that may damage the ring I lock it up in my suitecase.

As for your Fiance getting upset when you take it off I’d tell him to start saving up for a replacement if anything happens to it then! Wink

We bought stand-in rings for our honeymoon because we didn’t want to worry about losing them in the ocean or the pool. It’s an easy way to keep wearing a ring without worrying about the real one. 🙂

I have a stand in, but I took my ring to Florida when we went in September. I didnt use the stand in…but my e ring was fine. I locked it in the safe when we went to the beach. If it worries you a lot, you can get a ‘ring snuggie’, which are these plastic tubes that can go around the bottom of the ring and it makes the ring really tight. I have one on mine and my ring doesnt move throughout the day. Once I have my wedding band it will fit tighter, but for the next 3 months I have to deal with the snuggie!

Just google ring snuggie…they are dirt cheap and it will give you a temporary piece of mind!

@yellowshoe:  What type of lock do you use on your suitcase??  My friend had her suitcase locked, and money tucked inside of the lining of it and someone still got into it and stole the money.  She didnt even know until we left the hotel and got to the next city b/c they’d put the lock and everythign back just the way it was!

When I went to Cabo 2 months ago I left mine at home and wore a fake stand in for the trip. It eased any worries I had.

@pinkshoes:  I use a TSA approved lock so it can go through airport security. I’ve never had any problems *knock on wood*. I don’t trust hotel safes because my Mother-In-Law had her stuff cleaned out of the safe while she was out during the day.

@yellowshoe:  I’m already paraniod about the hotel safe too.  My husband is convinced that there must be a universal unlock code or way for the hotel to get into it incase someone forgets to unlock it and doesnt think it’s secure at all.

@pinkshoes:  well certain hotel staff have the universal key to the locks. My sister likes to use the hotel safes so when I was traveling with her recently she error-ed the safe and needed someone to come unlock it for her. The guy was in and out within half a minute. He just swiped his universal key and it was open.
