Default To Bling or Not to Bling, That is the Question

When you cruise, do you bring your good jewelry, or just travel with costume stuff? I do both, and cabins usually have safes. I don't bring a whole lot of either one, though, because I don't like the Christmas tree look. How about you?

I take the opportunity to really use my big earrings. But I don't bring a lot of jewelry and I don't bring my good stuff, just my vintage costume jewelry. But I prefer the vintage anyway...I have some really great looking pieces and they're fun to wear.

I usually leave the good stuff at home and travel with the costume. We tend to do a lot of active shore excursions and I don't like to wear it for that and am not really comfortable leaving it on the ship.

The only "good" stuff I bring are things I never take off (engagement/wedding rings, diamond line bracelet and diamond drop pendant) - everything else is costume. If it goes missing, so what.

I think there was a similar thread earlier on page ONE! but that's ok.
I have some good stuff. I have diamond stud earings that i wear everyday,(even for beach & snorkeling- they have a threaded post so they won't come off) i dress them up for evening with gold jackets. The wedding/engagement & mother's rings never come off my fingers. I have a diamond solitare necklace, and a diamond tennis bracelette that go in the safe and come out for formal nights.

Why have it if you can't wear it? I take all the good stuff - well, all that matches the formal outfit(s), anyway - and enjoy wearing it!!

If I had a VERY sentimental piece I might think twice about taking it with, but as for my good stuff....I say take it and ENJOY it!
