Whether you're planning a holiday overseas or a walk around a new and unfamiliar local city, or you're heading to an island where you'll be spending a lot of time near the sand and sea, you might not feel comfortable wearing your sentimental engagement ring. You might not want to lose that symbol of your relationship while you're away. In these cases, a travel engagement ring may be your best option.
Travel engagement rings are a convincing and inexpensive way to let everyone around you know that you're engaged without putting your actual engagement ring at risk (they are also a great option for single women who might feel safer with one on). In fact, many newlyweds opt to wear travel engagement rings on their honeymoons just so that they don't have to worry about anything happening to their actual rings. And the risks are real: a pricey engagement ring flashing on your finger when you're clearly a tourist can lead to potential theft, and, of course, there's always the scary option of losing it somewhere.
A travel ring can give you some peace of mind and can come in handy even when you're not on vacation. They're great for spending time at the beach this summer, the pool, or the gym, or anywhere you might feel worried about wearing your real ring. You can opt for one that looks similar to your actual ring, or you can try out something different for a fun change. Here are 5 of the best options out there.
