    @sah612:  I was just in puerto Vallarta in June. I promise, you’ll be fine. PV is amazing with great culture and people! A little tip, go and meet my friends at Que? Pasa! Tell Yvonne that her BFF from Louisiana sent you. It’s a great sports bar owned by an American ex pat and his Austrian wife. They are great fun and helped us feel right at home in PV.

    As long as you plan on never removing them, you’ll be fine.

    I, too, find it a bit odd that anyone should be concerned about wearing their ring abroad. There are thieves everywhere. Unless you are literally working in a tiny group, and are in the middle of nowhere in the third world, I can’t imagine you would be especially unsafe wearing jewellery anywhere, particularly.

    On the other hand, this is one reason why I didn’t want a huge rock. I would feel unsafe wearing a piece of jewellery worth thousands of pounds every day, regardless of where I was.

    I always wear my rings… even in the third world. But then, this was a concern when we were looking for rings. I needed something suitable for everyday wear.

    Therefore, it would depend on the rings in question, the exact activities, and the exact location. But if I were OP, I would just wear them.

    @hotpinkbride:  I travel all over with thousands of dollars worth of jewellery as well as very expensive shoes/clothes/purses/cameras; never had an issue. It wouldn’t occur to me to not wear my engagement ring abroad. And yes, I’ve been to Mexico, as well as numerous other places.

    @hotpinkbride:  DH and I went to Playa del Carmen, Mx for our honeymoon and even though both he and I are Mexican I was iffy about taking our rings with us (especially since we would really only be wearing them out to dinner, we were doing a lot of adventury non-jewerly appropriate activities) so we decided to leave them behind… well the day after the wedding was crazy hectic and long story short we ended up taking our rings with us, and guess what!!?… nothing happened to them lol… we left them in the safe during the day and wore them on our fingers for dinner/laid back activities… i’m kind of glad we took them it made it seem more like our honeymoon!!:)

    so i say, if you are going to stay in a top rated hotel go ahead and take them, there is just of a chance of them being stolen if you were anywhere else in world. (IMO)

    I would not. I didn’t wear my engagement ring to the Poconos! I am paranoid. I do not sleep with my ring on because I worry about what I am going to do when I sleep! I also hate the feeling of the wet ring on my finger, and sometimes will take it off to dry… I just don’t want to lose or damage it. I went horseback riding for the first time, and I was glad I left the ring at home… I personally plan to leave the ring home for the honeymoon. With that being said I have a back diamond wedding band that I wear in place of my actual ring, and will continue to do that. I also have a few cheap back up fun rings I would wear instead.  If losing the ring will ruin the vacay, put it away!!!

    I generally don’t wear my engagement ring when we travel. In recent years, we’ve been to Mexico, Costa Rica, and Honduras. Each time I have worn a cheap band just for the sake of wearing something. We are not stay on the resort types of people – we like to go out and see the country, so it’s a combination of concern of theft as well as just losing them. I don’t want to wear it in the water, but I don’t want to take it off and leave it in the room or vacation rental either. Better safe than sorry I guess. We are doing a destination wedding in St. Thomas, so I will wear it there and on our honeymoon around the Virgin Islands, but I’m def nervous. Once we get married I will likely just wear my band when we travel.

    I would never wear mine on vacation. I wouldn’t want to risk losing them or having them stolen. I know it can happen just as easily here too, but I still leave them at home for trips. When we went on our honeymoon to Paris, I wore a cheapie plain silver band.

    I wouldn’t take mine. I wouldn’t be worried about theft as much as I would be about losing it, or wrecking it. My ring is going to be gold, so I would be concerned about the chlorine in the pools hurting it, and also about losing it in the ocean. I wouldn’t be any more concerned about theft from a safe in Mexico than I would be about theft from a safe anywhere else.

    While I wouldn’t feel comfy wearing 2 or 3 carat rings or earrings, a decent 1 carat stone wouldn’t bother me whatsoever. We honeymooned in Cancun too and did not have a problem.

    We did go off the resort and I left my ERing in the safe. We were planning on swimming with dolphins so you absolutely cannot wear shiny rings.

    I wore my rings on honeymoon but left them in the safe when I was at the pool or on the beach because my finger shrinks up in water, so I didn’t want to sustain an unnessesary loss. I do the same thing at home. But I’m never worried just wearing my rings in another country because I have a really good insurance policy that covers all sorts of things that could happen. Obviously I’d rather not lose the rings to begin with. But I figure what’s the point if I’m afraid to wear them?

    If I feel a little uneasy while going through any areas (at home or abroad) I just turn my solitaire inwards so it’s less conspicuous. My eternity band it not too showy that I worry about it.

    I just traveled to cancun in June. Stayed at a resort the entire time and yes my rings were with me. I didn’t wear them much during the day because of the fact that we went to the pool a lot. The beach i wouldn’t mind but don’t wanna be wearing theM in the chlorine. So I left them in the safe in a hidden spot in the room. Didn’t worry at all even tho I am a worrier because I knew we had Insurance. I would put them on at night for dinner. When I looked around almost every woman I saw had their rings on. So I wouldn’t worry. Not to say something couldnt happen. But something could happen where you live too. hope this helps!

    My future sister-in-law was surprised with a honeymoon to Cancun when she got married a few months ago…

    As far as I know, they both wore their wedding/engagement rings.

    Just be smart and be aware…. they came home happy, in one peace, and with all jewelry/adornment they departed with 🙂
