MissLibra: To give you a serious answer, no I do not personally wear my rings to vegas. I do not gamble so most of my vegas trip is spent sightseeing buzzed, watching shows buzzed, and eating while drinking, and sitting in the pool buzzed. Did I mention I never stay past three days?
Anyway, my trip is mainly spent impaired so I leave my rings at home. I could see the ring slipping off in the pool or me just taking it off somewhere and not remembering I left it on my hotel bed and now a maid just really scored. I wear a travel ring that looks similar to the real thing.

sparklesbelle: thanks for your reply. this is the kind of response that is what people should be writing rather than belittling me and being condescending. Including reposting other posters snotty remarks and gifs.

Excuse us for being rude but it’s not like that helpful explanation was on your ORIGINAL post. You just asked if you should leave you ring when you go to Vegas. No info on you swimming or that you take it off at night. Instead you focus on two things: leaving ring at home and vegas.

OP, my Fiance and I are headed to Vegas next week for his birthday. I never even thought about NOT wearing my e-ring although we are doing that helicopter ride/river excursion at the Grand Canyon. Perhaps you can put it in your room safe if u go swimming? Don’t mind the rude comments, by the way.

MissLibra: You can put them in a safe when you go the pool. Ask your hotel for a room with a personal safe.

People swim in Vegas? Everytime I have stayed on the strip the pool area just seems to be a place for the beautiful to mingle, carrats and all.

I think everyone here is putting too much stock in room safes.
“All hotels have a backdoor or “special way” so the staff can get into the safe in case a guest forgets the code, or loses the key to the safe. Some safes may use a master key, others may have a special override code to open the door. Either way, when a safe has a way for someone other than you to get in it, your valuables are never 100% safe.”

Oh my god. I live in freakin Sin City. Vegas attracts people off all means. Have some common sense in your surrounding like anywhere else in the world. Or don’t travel. Or just don’t leave your home if you are so worried.

I personally have. And I would. I wear my rings all the time.
If you want to wear them but are still worried, you can set an alarm on your phone for the days of your trip to remind you each evening or morning to check on your rings or “grab them from nightstand” or whatever.

Thanks to everyone with real replies and opinions! To those hiding behind their computers being totally rude and bitchy, guys calm down. I never said I was scared to be in Vegas, this is my second time there, and we travel often. This is the first trip with our rings and I was curious, because like i said with taking my rings off at night and for the pool, if people just leave their rings at home. I’m not worried about being mugged, pawning my ring (wtf??) etc. just if they somehow did go missing or get lost if I forget to put them back on right away. I’ve read countless travel stories good and bad about people losing rings in a pool etc. and was looking for some opinions. Is that how you would talk to someone face to face? Like really.

I would be more worried about losing the ring down a sink drain than losing it in a pool in Vegas. I spent 100 nights in hotels last year, took my ring off every night, and didn’t lose it. In my opinion, you’re being paranoid.

MissLibra: I recently got snarked on a post I wrote as well, don’t take it personally! I think sometimes people misuse anonymity on the internet to be jerks . It is definitely weird to feel criticized or attacked by a total stranger, isn’t it?

Seems I offended you by quoting horseradish? I thought what she said was more a “truth in jest” thing rather than a “rude and jerky” thing. My apologies for my part in making you feel uncomfortable.
I do agree that your explaining the pool or removing rings to sleep and such in your OP would have clarified what suggestions you sought. Have a fun time in Vegas, though, rings or not.

I wear my rings everywhere, so I would miss them if I left them home. That being said, if you remove your rings a great deal it might be better for you to leave them home rather than risk forgetting them in a strange place

NovaRising: Great point! I rarely, if ever, have used a hotel safe for that very reason.
I carry a lock in my suitcase when I travel and leave anything of value well hidden in there and I lock it up before leaving the room.
