While planning that long-awaited summer vacation, that mental to-do list begins to add up and it’s easy to miss the little things! While arranging grocery lists and packing flip flops, don’t forget to consider that one important thing that always slips your mind… the wedding ring dilemma. Do you bring your wedding ring along on vacation or do you leave it behind and hope your ring tan speaks for itself?
It’s a difficult decision to make! There are several big risks to consider seriously before bringing your ring on vacation. Plus, we’ve come up with a third option that is such a fantastic win-win that you’ll probably do a happy dance when you read it… it’s that good!
But first… why should you NOT bring your wedding ring on vacation? Let’s get right to the point.
WHY NOT BRING YOUR WEDDING RING ALONG ON VACATION?
1. PROTECT YOUR RING (AND HAND) FROM DAMAGE.
Whether you’re vacationing to the ocean or taking a quiet retreat in the mountains, bring along your wedding ring and you risk the possibility of damage. Salt water corrodes metal and dulls diamonds so even a chill beach vacation could cause serious problems with your traditional wedding ring.
If you think damage to your ring is bad, get this - your ring could also put your finger at risk! If your metal band happens to snag on anything it could cause serious injury called “ring avulsion.” Don’t google that one… trust us. Just take our word for it and don’t wear your wedding ring on adventures.
2. KEEP YOUR RING SAFE.
Our wedding rings have so much irreplaceable sentimental value but they’re so easy to lose! Your ring could slip off in the ocean or get lost while you’re ziplining in South America. Either way, it’s risky wearing your ring on your vacation adventures! Even if you’re thinking about leaving your ring in your hotel room so it doesn’t get lost, that’s a risk, too! You could end up forgetting it in the room or it could even be stolen. We hate to assume the worst but it happens far too often! If you really want to protect that ring that you cherish, keep it safe at home.
3. AVOID EXTRA HASSLE!
So you’re super organized, always lock your ring away in the safe box in your hotel room, and always take it off to keep your finger and ring safe during adventures. Still… the constant ring on, ring off, is a huge hassle and the risk of loss is never out of the question. Plus, the hassle of keeping track of your ring is one more headache you don’t need while you’re supposed to be relaxing on a vacation from stress! Do yourself a favor and remove that one burden from your mind by keeping your ring home where it is guaranteed to be safe.
So… where does all of this leave us? It sounds like the only option is to go on vacation bare-fingered.
