My husband and I both wear silicone stand-in rings when we do our outdoor adventures. I have like 5 or 6 in different colors so I can coordinate with my outfits lol. I just don’t like stressing about damaging or losing my ring. We didn’t even take our rings on our honeymoon.

I would leave it at home.

If you decide to leave it at home, I would wear some sort of substitute or stand in ring.  You’re used to wearing a ring on that finger and you don’t want to scare yourself into a panic thinking you’ve lost it when you realize your finger is naked.

Since you have a friend who’s going to do some engagement style photo shoots for you, I would bring the ring and lock in the car when you’re camping. If it wasn’t for that I would’ve said just leave it at home, no big deal not wearing it, you both know you’re engaged, you don’t need a ring to announce it all the time.

Also make sure it’s insured of course, wherever it is then it’s covered for theft (even leaving it at home, your house could get broken in for example, touch wood! But it’s happened to a couple of people I know) and damage etc.

I would bring it and wear it only when you go out to eat or during the photography session.

We go camping every year and go to a different park every time. I will personally get a Ring Hero band that’s just a little zip pocket that you wear on your wrist. The silicone ring thing is ugly and bulky to me, I’m just gonna wear my ring, or not at all. This way I can “wear” it and still have it on me.

Consider me the exception but I’d wear it.  My ring is insured for a reason, and its so I don’t have to worry about loss/damage/theft.  I rarely take it off, really only when I’m doing something very messy and even then I often forget. 

If your ring isn’t insured, I wouldn’t leave it at home.  I’d put it in a safety deposit box.

I’d make sure it’s insured and bring it.

I’d wear it.  We did 2 week trip in New Zealand including camping, hiking, glacier walk, etc and I wore it the whole time.  But I also have it on 99% of the time.  The only time it comes off is when I’m painting something or squshing ground beef with my bare hands for burgers.  If you’re not gonna wear it, I’d just leave it at home.  I think taking it on and off is more risky for loss than just leaving it on.

I’d wear it! That’s what it’s for. It’s not a cocktail ring! It’s your engagement ring.

Maybe it’s just me, but I’d be way more paranoid about leaving it in an empty house for two weeks or leaving it in a car in a public place with tons of people around. It’s probably safer on your finger.

A ring is generally much safer on your finger than anywhere else. So I would bring it and wear it for anything bar possibly the kayaking, depending on the fit of your ring (I swim in mine with no issues but might be more cautious in colder water)
