I've stopped wearing and taking "good" jewelry on all my recent cruises for two reasons:
- The Salt water is corrosive and harmful to it
- The possibility of theft is too great
This even includes my wedding rings which I have replaced with faux diamond rings for travel - I feel naked without a wedding band... I grew tired of taking my jewelry in for professional cleaning after a cruise and listening to the jeweler tell me how much damage I was doing to it. I also used to put all of it in the safe and didn't bother to take it out. I've been having more fun with faux stuff and trinkets I've bought when cruising ... the really irreplaceable stuff stays home ....
