Destination Proposal? Here's How to Travel Safely With Your Engagement Ring

Your engagement will be one of the most special moments of your life (no pressure!). So, if you have decided to go all the way and planned a romantic vacation to pop the question, we can tell you it's a very thoughtful gesture and something she will always remember. As much as we love the idea of a destination proposal, the process of traveling with an engagement ring (while keeping it a secret) can be a little difficult. But, worry not! You should focus on the proposing part, let us give you some tips on how to handle the logistics of traveling with the ring. All it takes is a few simple precautions to make sure that your ring is safe while you are traveling.

As soon as you have your ring, have it insured. This should be easy to do because most jewelers will offer you appraisal and insurance services. It is also advisable to choose jewelry-specific insurance, separate from your home owner's insurance, for better cover. We understand that insurance may be the last thing on your mind with all the excitement and stress of the proposal  but be sure to insure the ring before you travel with it. Insurance will cover theft, lost or damage to the ring (all probable scenarios when on a vacation).

Carry-on Bag
This one is a no-brainer. An engagement ring in a checked bag is vulnerable to theft or getting lost or being delayed. Pack the ring in an inconspicuous box in your carry-on bag. You can put it in a watch box because a ring box could ruin the surprise. Make sure you pack things like chargers or medication in your partner's bag so there's no need for her to hunt through your bag looking for something. 

Destination Safety
As soon as you check in your hotel, find a safe place for your engagement ring. Theft is always a risk at tourist destinations so you absolutely should not carry the ring with you when you are sightseeing. Many hotels offer a safe for their guests (besides the one in your room) so you could use that service. In fact, you may want to call ahead and ask for such a service. We would recommend proposing on the day of your arrival or the day after. That way, the ring is safely on her hand or in your room safe and you get to enjoy the vacation stress-free.

Social Media Security
You may not be a celebrity with a million followers on Instagram but sharing geo-tagged photos of an expensive piece of jewelry on the internet may not be a good idea. It's the little things that make a big difference and it doesn’t hurt to be extra careful. Once you're home, you could share the photos on your social media accounts so your family and friends know about the happy news.

Keep these tips in mind and get ready to pop the question. We wish you good luck!
