I'm also afraid of misplacing my engagement ring. Therefore, I lock it up and wear my wedding band when I go away. Actually, I rarely take off the wedding band, but I do take the diamond off just as a preference instead of banging it around. I'm pretty rough when working with my hands...washing dishes, doing a craft, sports,, I like to take a fake along on vacation. I pop it on with my wedding band and wear it the whole trip! I've even gotten compliments!

I don't take a chance. I have a 3 diamond ring and one of the diamonds was my mothers. Not worth the heartache if anything should happen. I keep picturing a womans necklace being ripped off her neck right in front of us while walking in San Jose. She was with her husband too.

Do a little reading on this board and you will find people whose things were stolen from their cars while eating lunch, people whose car tires were punctured and then were robbed when they stopped to change the tire.

Sorry, I love the country and it's people but there are bad apples everywhere you go in the world. No amount of insurance could ever replace this ring. I went through a bad robbery at my home a few years ago and lost some very special things-one of which was my engagement ring. I bought some nice pieces of jewelry with the money trying to replace what was gone in my heart but they never did.

We recently went to Puerta Vallarta, Mexico with a group of 10. Some of us wore our jewelry and some didn't. None of us had any problem. I was one who didn't. I went to Wal-Mart and for $34 bought a gold band. My wedding set is pretty showy and I didn't want to have to worry about it. Also I wanted to play in the ocean without a care...and I did. I was glad that I didn't have to leave my ring in a safe in my room. I am a worrier by nature and I take my ring off to shower, sleep, swim, etc. As far as a watch goes...who needs to tell time in Mexico?
