    JNDtheBrideToBe:  I understand where you are coming from on a general scale but there is a major element missing in this. And I am assuming the OP is staying at a casino. Casinos have a lot of money going through them, well beyond the scope of a normal hotel. 30% of cameras are back of house, 70% front. Everyone guestroom door has a key card, which logs every entry and exit. Room keycards have to be signed out from security for housekeeping so they have a recond of who exactly has access to what room. There are cameras in the guest hallways, at the staff doors, staff elevators, their carts are searched and inventoried before and after shift. It is common policy for housekeeping and PAD to carry clear purses to get to shift and out. All casino personal have  their personal belongings searched at end of shift. In-room safes do not have keys, a code is entered by the guest to open and lock the safe. If a code is forgotten then there are well documented procedures for security to follow. 

     

    How do I know? I have now worked in 3 major casinos on the Strip, and an Indian Casino. I have stayed in pretty all the major Strip casinos and have friends in a variety of positions in casinos. There is always a very small chance but Vegas is very precise with employee procedures and is much more secure than a normal hotel. It still doesn’t hurt to have common sense, better safe than sorry.

    For when you are at the pool, try the in room safe or put a lock in your bag so you can have peace of mind! For at night take the ring box(es) with you and put them on the nightstand, or put them on a necklace. Have a great time OP!

    This is silly. Vegas is not some 3rd world country where you’ll get hijacked.

    If you don’t lose it at home you probably won’t lose it in Vegas. This isn’t something to worry about….

    Honestly, I’m a person that always wears my rings on vacation and doesn’t even take them off to swim. I tend to think they are safer on my finger than taken off and put somewhere else for “safe” keeping. I’ve never had  any issues. If they fit you well and are insured, I say wear them and don’t worry about it.

    JNDtheBrideToBe:  Just FYI suitcase zippers are also very easy to open and reclosed locked. Plus if they are going to break into a safe in a hotel room (not just Vegas, anywhere) then they are also just as likely to remove your lock (which also have master keys and are easily removed with cutters) or carry your bag out.

    If you put your rings in a safe, set an alarm on your phone for the day before you leave or the morning you’re leaving and change the alarm title to “GET RINGS OUT OF SAFE!”. Just in case you forget them (unlikely, but it happens – when we left Puerto Rico, there was a guy in the airport frantically calling the hotel to say he left his wedding ring there by accident). It’s a nice last-minute reminder to not have to deal with calling hotel security, asking them to mail the rings to you, etc!

    JNDtheBrideToBe:  Good way of doing things.  People steal luggage, but you rarely hear about it unless they are carrying around a Louis Vuitton set.

    NovaRising:  My set is far from a LV, so I think I am good!  😉

    j_jaye:  Between work travel and personal travel, I travel upwards of 15x per year and have never had my luggage (or anything, for that matter – although, I never use the safe) stolen from my hotel room. One is more likely to quickly recognize/identify missing luggage, rather than to realize a safe has been tampered with. I’ll continue to lock valuables in my luggage when leaving room as that has worked best for me!

    I guess it comes down to what you are comfortable with.  I found that with “precious items”, I used to carefully keep them packed away to protect them and realized that I only got stress from them, not enjoyment.  My Mom was an only child an through inheritances, ended up with an impressive collection of precious items – sterling silver, jewelry, fine china, crystal, etc.  She is not materialistic at all and really didn’t value them at all so she tried to give them to her children who declined because they didn’t want the upkeep/care.  So I ended up with them because most of all, I felt bad.  After storing them carefully for years, I got tired of it so we contacted charities/museums to donate them to.  The sterling silver specialist at the museum actually recommended that I just use them every day and enjoy them because that use would decrease the need to polish them.  I thought was brilliant so we do use them for everyday dinning.  Is it ridiculous – kind of, but we donated the most intricate/fine pieces.  The rest, I use everyday to eat with.  I thought my Mom would be mad but she feels that my Grandmother would be thrilled that someone in her family is enjoying them and using them instead of being auctioned.  I take the same stance with my ering, I have worn it all over the world, I don’t really think or worry about it (it’s insured).  I enjoy using my “precious” things and would rather use them, enjoy them, possibly replace them versus putting them in a safe forever.  But that’s just my preference, I would recommend that if bringing your eRing is going to stress you more than leaving it at home then leave it at home.  I hope that helps you, best wishes!

    I always wore mine on every trip I ever went on…just love them so much that I don’t want to be without them. I was always careful never to take them off when I was out in public like washing my hands in restrooms and stuff as a lot of people I know have taken them off and left them on counters and they were gone.  Just always make sure you have them on you or in the hotel safe.

    MissLibra:  Yes, I’ve never not brought my ring on a trip. I really don’t understand why so many on the bee use a stand in or are afraid to travel with their rings. My mom has a very substantial ring and she’s never once thought to leave it behind.
