If you are planning to travel by plane, consider a few things:
Never put the engagement ring into your check-in-luggage! Better be safe than sorry – by simply putting the ring into your suitcase, you’re taking the risk of it being lost or arriving late. Hence, it’s recommendable to carry the ring with you at all times.
Best places to store your ring while travelling
- A side pocket of your hand luggage
- Inside pocket of a jacket*
When going through the security scan, it's not a good idea to keep wearing the ring close to your body – unless you're planning to propose right on the spot: The scans might detect the ring and expose you. Of course, the ring will also be detected by the scanner checking your hand luggage. At some airports, the scanner screens can be seen by passengers. To be 100 % sure she doesn’t get a hint, let your loved one go through the scan first!
