I would leave it at home and go ringless. If I was gone for a month maybe I would put it in our safety deposit box.

What kind of ring is it? If it’s huge and high-set with lots of pavé, then I’d probably leave it in our safe deposit box and go ringless. If it’s low-set and simple, then I’d just wear it. So long as it’s insured!

I would not lock your ring in your car. Idk where you’re from but here it’s way too common that hikers get their cars broken into. They’re targeted specifically because they’re in remote areas.

If you lock your I lock your ring in your car and it’s broken into and the ring stolen, will your car insurance cover it or your ring insurance? 

Thats what I would be be careful of.

I would get it insured and wear it the entire time.

I’d go ringless or use a silicone ring if the symbol is important to you. Then you’ll have it for once you’re married and continue going on adventures, too. If you’re not used to wearing it all the time, you won’t want to for the whole trip and you won’t be in a routine about where you put it when you take it off. I’m the same way and I don’t travel with my engagement ring, just my wedding band. If I we had traveled while engaged I likel would have worn like a stainless steel plain band or nothing.

AnonBee2019 :  1st congrats to your engagement.  Because my wedding set is insured, I feel comfortable traveling with it everywhere and anywhere.  Except for when I’m working in the gym.  It can get uncomfortable on my finger and that why I don’t wear then.  On a month long trip, I would wear it everyday and while camping lock it up in the car.

I did a month long national park camping trip across America when I was engaged, and my ring survived just fine 🙂 depends on what your ring is though?

I’m pretty careful about my ring, too, but I would definitely want it while going out in the city on your trip. I also wouldn’t do an engagement shoot without my ring, so my vote is to bring it with you and figure out the most secure way to hide in your car while you’re camping and hiking.

Depends on the ring. If it was my solitaire set with the pave band that soldered together I’d wear it and just never take it off. That set is really solid. It is very low set with platinum prongs and feels very secure. It’s also a moissanite main stone so not too expensive to replace. If it was my newer morganite ring I would most definitely leave it home. I wouldn’t want the stone to chip, it’s only 4 rose gold prongs holding on the 3 carat center, and it’s my favorite ring/thing I own.

The last thing I’d do would be to leave it in a car. It’s really common for cars to get broken into in nature areas precisely because theives know people often leave their valuables there when they go out hiking, and they know to check all the usual hiding spots.

I’d either take it and wear it all the time or leave it someplace secure (like a home safe bolted to the ground or a security deposit box). Taking it off and on all the time while traveling is a recipe for disaster. 

Personally I’d probably take it and wear it all the time, but only if I weren’t planning to do any particularly strenous activities where it could get damaged, e.g. rock climbing. If I were mostly planning on leisurely hikes and sightseeing, I wouldn’t be worried about damaging it.

Nope.. I wouldn’t bring it.  A million and one things can happen while camping.  Losing jewelry shouldn’t be one of them [but often is].
