Secrets of the Traveling Bride: How to Safely Travel with Your Engagement Ring

It’s almost time to pop the question. Or you have, and you’re planning a trip with your significant other and wondering how to travel with your engagement ring safely. Well, you’re in luck! These tips will help you keep your precious ring safe and secure during your travels, so you can focus on enjoying your trip with no worries.

1. Insurance

One of the best ways to ensure your engagement ring stays safe while traveling is to purchase ring insurance. You never know what could happen while you’re on the go, and having insurance coverage can give you peace of mind knowing that your ring is protected.

Many insurance companies offer travel insurance policies that cover lost, stolen, or damaged jewelry. Invest and sleep better.

2. Carry-On Luggage

Are you ready to pop the question? In that case, the last thing you’d want is for your thousands of dollars ring to go missing because the airport didn’t handle your luggage efficiently. So please keep it on you at all times to ensure that your thing of beauty makes it to your partner’s finger.

3. Any Protection Is Good Protection

One user narrates how her husband had pulled out her engagement ring from his wallet because some liquid in his backpack had spilled over the case in transport, and he moved it there. When traveling with that ring, ensure it’s free from spills and stains.

4. No Swimming

Saltwater could make it easy for the ring to slip off your finger. Unless you don’t mind sea creatures proposing to each other with your million-dollar ring, keeping it from water is best. Saltwater could also damage the ring and diamond, so leave the jewelry for the red carpet and photographs, huh?

5. Don’t Do the “Ring on It” Dance

You’re excited, you just got engaged, or you have the most pretty stone in your vacation home — we get it. Of course, you’d want to flaunt it, and you should. But, while you are, note that some professional pickpockets can slip it off with a handshake.

They’re quick and sly, so it’s best not to flash such an expensive thing so you don’t get into trouble with less-than-pleasant fellows.

6. Use a Jewelry Travel Case

They’re small, chic, and elegant. Most notably, they have a key or combination that allows you to lock up your engagement ring and other valuables. If you can keep that safe, your ring will always be where you left it, waiting for your manicured fingers.

7. Deploy Decoy

You can always get a decoy ring if you want to travel with a ring. A well-done decoy ring would serve the purpose just as well and leave the actual ring in the safety of your home, where you don’t have to worry about it.

8. Thank You, Apple

Say you get a nice bag for it but can’t carry it on you. Best to put it away in a secure bag and then have an AirTag attached to the bag, so no matter where you are, no matter where it goes, you’ll always be able to find your ring.

9. Take Care of It

Travel with a polishing cloth. Yes, diamonds are made under pressure, so they can take some beating. But you’d want to ensure your diamond ring isn’t smudged or covered in dirt or dust.

The ring itself could get some dirt on it, so make sure it’s kept clean at all times. You could go hiking with the ring on; you never know what’ll happen on your travels.

10. Ring Holder

It works by holding your ring in place with a small clip or suction cup so it doesn’t get lost or damaged. You can find ring holders at many jewelry stores or online retailers. They come in various designs, including keychains and necklace pendants, making them convenient.

Attach the holder to your bag or wear it around your neck, and you can safely remove your ring when needed without worrying about misplacing it.

America is a divided nation — or so it would seem if we are to believe the news media, with their non-stop live reporting on the great social divide. We’ve been there before. In the Civil War, it was North vs. the South; in hip hop, it was the East Coast vs. West Coast divide. However, now it seems to be a rural vs. urban divide.

Regardless, some Southerners still find the North a surprise. A recent discussion sheds some light on the matter, with people sharing their biggest surprises about their northern neighbors.
