Wearing good jewellery while in Mexico

We wondered whether people visiting Mexico feel safe wearing their wedding bands, etc. or do you leave your good jewellery home?

I felt safe wearing my good jewellery while i was there. Didn't hear about any incidents concerning jewellery while we were there either.

Just make sure you have a safety deposite box, if you don't want to wear your jewellery all the time, just to be on the safe side

I always wear my wedding rings but I never take my 'best/favourite jewelry' or any sentimental jewelry. Not worth the worry. I wear lots of fake bling though! After all, a woman must sparkle.

My husband bought me fake earrings and necklace which look real and are huge!!!

I told him that they would probably get me into more trouble than my real jewellery. :)

We leave our wedding rings at home and put on our Mr and Mrs Smith silver bands we bought in Mexico. If they come off on the beach or in the water it is only $10.00 and not our more meaningful and valuable originals.

J&W ... I think that's a great idea. We met a young, newly-married couple while at the Royal de Cameron a few years ago -- they were frantically looking for her lost wedding ring!! A very unsettling time for the two of them, to say the least.

I have been to various resorts and cities in Mexico over 25 times and have never felt unsafe. As you can see from the above replies, your greatest risk to your jewelry is if it falls off in the water. The only reason not to bring it, is it gives you an excuse to shop for new jewelry while you are there!

Thanks for all the suggestions!

I think I'll take the advice of some....leave the good, sentimental jewellery at home and shop for 'holiday' jewellery!!!

I always leave my rocks at home. I do take some fun silver rings to wear while in Mexico. I did lose one last year in the ocean, no tears. If anyone is on Playa Norte on Isla please be on the lookout!
