So, my ring is pretty simple – it’s a half carat solitaire set in yellow gold.
I was thinking if I did lock it in the car I’d lock it into one of those padlock lock boxes and then put it in the glove compartment. We do plan on doing some pretty strenuous activities like tough hikes and such. Maybe one of those baggies that connects to my water bottle would work? So I have it on my person at all time. I feel like this might be a good compromise. I can get used to sleeping with it and showering with it (which I don’t currently do)
I know if we were married I’d just wear my band which is why I feel kinda strange about it just being my e-ring.
Thanks for your opinions and suggestions Bees keep em coming!

Just wear it on a necklace. I have seen a necklace they sell just for that purpose. Look online. I know I have seen someone post it on the wedding bee.

I would definitely leave it. I scratch up my ring every time I go hiking and camping. Leave it at home and wear the silicone. It doesn’t matter if you’re not married yet!

I would leave it at home. No need to scratch it up and damage it. I don’t like CZ rings as stand in, as I would think people can tell it’s not a diamond, and maybe they would think I don’t know it’s not a diamond… it’s just no.
Another option is, insure it and lock it in your car when you are not wearing it. Make sure you already have an appraisal done and that your policy would cover “mysterious disappearance”. Some insurance policies only cover damage by certain perils or theft. (insurance agent here, lol)

When my husband and I hike locally, I wear a plain gold band stand-in that I purchased specifically for nature outings like that, and I leave the diamonds at home. I would apply the same rule for myself if I were to embark upon a lengthy camping excursion far from home. However, if I were engaged, I’d feel weird wearing a band, too, so I’d buy a CZ ring from Berricle that is similar to my engagement ring.

I’m engaged and I wear my silicone ring a lot – to the gym, just running errands. I didn’t even wear my e-ring to to my bm fitting last week, lol.

I probably wouldn’t. I’m pretty delicate with my ring, and even though its insured I’d rather not lose it out in the woods somewhere lol. Its not like you’re any less engaged going out to dinner without a ring.

I’d go ringless personally as my fingers swell in the heat and being outside that much I’d probably just be uncomfortable with it on all the time. I wore it on an insanely exhausting hike Sunday and it was completely stuck on my finger I was so swelled up. But that may be just my own personal problem as I’m getting older lol.

owls : That is beautiful, but is likely to cause light scratching or wear! It is a great option for someone who doesn’t mind or isn’t moving much (causing it to shift around on the charm), but it could be an unfortunate surprise for someone who is doing heavy activity and using it to protect their ring.

Hubby and I camp a lot of have silicone rings. I highly recommend them. Pretty comfy and cute and durable.
