What To Do With Wedding And Engagement Rings When You Travel

What will you do when you go on a trip and you’re wondering what to do with that engagement ring that you not only have a sentimental attachment to, but could be easily lost or stolen?  One answer is to simply leave it at home.  But what if there was a middle of the road solution?  Some people are buying imitation rings that look like their ring but aren’t the real deal.  Others are simply getting his and hers travel rings that are simple and not worth so much that they would make them a target of theft.  You can still outwardly wear your commitment without having to stress about losing a valuable possession.

You can buy simple stainless steel cubic zircona rings on Amazon for between $10 and $20.  This is a very popular solution for those who still want something that looks legit.  For those with deeper pockets, there are pricier and better quality solutions at stores like Nordstrom or Lord and Taylor.

It’s definitely uncomfortable to just not wear a ring after being engaged – it would feel weird and vulnerable.  So definitely think about alternatives!

Propose With The Real Thing Or A Stand-In?

If you are the one proposing, then traveling to a distant location with an expensive ring can feel very stressful.  Most people will want to propose with the real thing – I mean, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity and you don’t want to disappoint with a lackluster diamond engagement ring.  However, to avoid any travel mishaps follow these tips:

  • Pack the ring in the box, and keep it in a sock to avoid it banging around.  It’s also a good hiding place.
  • Avoid wrapping the box to avoid TSA questioning and the need to possibly unwrap it.
  • Attaching a note to the box, aka “Engagement ring inside, please be discreet” will notify TSA agents and they won’t flash the ring around if they feel they need to inspect your baggage.
  • It’s a good idea to register the engagement ring before you travel, or at least take a photo of it with yourself prior to traveling overseas in order to prove that you didn’t purchase it overseas or intend to sell it.
  • Plan to propose early in the trip to alleviate stress of carrying around, especially if you’re doing outdoorsy things.
  • Utilize the safe in your hotel room!

Other Ring Travel Tips

Insuring your engagement or wedding ring is a good idea.  Declare it on your homeowners insurance or simply purchase a plan for it if it’s over a certain amount.

Consider bringing a “stand-in” ring if you decide to propose with the real thing.  If you’re in a place where a diamond ring will stand out and attract unwanted attention, definitely use a low-key fake after the proposal.  Keep the real ring for when you’re home and in a more familiar location.

Take lots of photos!  But avoid using geotagged social media posts in case it attracts unwanted attention.  Perhaps a bit paranoid but maybe worth it.
