When we travel, I wear a cheap plain band. I could never replace the sentimentality of my rings, so I’d rather avoid the risk of them being lost or stolen.

@This Time Round:  I just wear a fake ring so I dont lose or misplace my real one. I didnt think about someone robbing me..no doubt that can happend but that wasnt the main reason for me not wearing my “real” ring

er for people saying its a terrible idea,what do you guys imagine people in mexico do?!

yes, the majority of us who live in mexico(i live in monterrey mexico where unlike cancun there ARE travel advisory warnings and no, i dont like in the fancy bit) ,mexican and foreigners alike DO wear diamond engagement rings and wedding bands like any other country. and we don’t only go in tourist areas. and no, people don’t machete off your fingers either here or in cancun. iif you wander into a dark alley in a really ghetto area of town (far from the tourist areas) then maybe someone will try to rob you…but still, its not that likely

i would leave it in a safe in the hotel room rather than out on the table (as i would in london, NY or anywhere else) and not take it into the sea for fear of it falling off. but i would never be afraid to wear it in a 5 star resort. or in the taxi/bus getting there

@Horseradish:  I dont leave anything valuable in the hotel room. Including passports. They are with me at all times. Call me paranoid,. But DH has way too many claims to count where hotel staff are very untrustworthy. Especially in the caribbean.

@Laurenskii:  Im sorry…I am a bit paranoid when I travel. But for something as valuable as that, I wouldnt risk it. Especially in the caribbean where you will be doing a lot of water activities. I would hate for something to happen.

I didnt even bring my ring on our honeymoon. We went to Paris and Barcelona. Paris I wasnt worried about, it was Barcelona that I was concerned bc where we stayed it was like pick pocket central. The hotel staff even warned us when  we got there  so I made sure I had a messenger bag that I had my hand on the whole time bc it was very crowded .

@Laurenskii:  you’re ring can be stolen anywhere. You’ll be fine. I wore my rings to Mexico and had no concerns. Your fiances attitude would be more concerning to me then my rings being stolen. Just make sure they’re insured.

Unless you plan to be walking around in the streets, you’ll be fine.   I just came back from the Excellence Riviera, which is like, between Cancun and Playa del Carmen.   We even had a day trip out to Playa, where the market is, and nobody bothered us, it’s very touristy.

I’d be more worried about my house being robbed while I was away than losing it on my vacation, but I never take my rings off, at all, unless I’m cleaning them, and then I put them right back on.   If I was the type to take them off and leave them by the bed, or take them off to work out, shower, swim, etc, then maybe I’d have a stand in, but I don’t take them off.

If you have insurance on it, don’t worry about it  🙂

My moms friend was shot in the head (missed but grazed the skull and required 30+ stiches in his scalp) over a gold chain necklace he was wearing off the resort. A man wanted it and he said no. Mind you this was 20 years ago. Im not sure what to say. Im more scared of it falling off in the ocean. I lost 3 pairs of sunglasses in the waves. Ha

You’re more likely to have something happen to it if you leave it at home, unattended.

Wear it most of the time, and leave it in the safe when you go to the pool/ocean.

@Daizy914:  All the hotels I go to have you set the code yourself.. so I would be surprised if the hotel staff could access it.
