Will a ring set off airport security?

If you are planning that dream proposal it may mean that you want to pop the question in an exotic or sentimental place overseas, but will that precious Diamond engagement ring set off airport security? Will that well-planned proposal be ruined by an an alarm at customs? Or will an over zealous security guard spoil the special surprise? This guide will hopefully help you to avoid all of these nightmare scenarios.

Shall I keep the ring in my pocket when going through airport security?

Definitely not! This will trigger a metal detector or might get spotted by your partner when you are emptying your pockets.

Hold luggage or hand luggage?

This is a dilemma many people have when debating where to store their engagement ring. Well, our advice would be to choose hand luggage. Hold luggage sometimes goes missing & you certainly wouldn’t want that! With hand luggage the ring will be very close to you at the airport, on the plane & comes off the plane with you at your destination.

Should I take the ring out of the box to make it more discreet?

No, its best not to do this. Even the best made engagement ring in the world it quite a delicate thing. It may get crushed if another heavy bag ends up on your bag. The ring box will protect the ring so it’s best to think inside the box!

Should I wrap the ring box to disguise it?

No, don’t do this becuase this could be deemed suspicious by airport security & they may ask you to unwrap the ring box in front of your partner.

What other tips are there for keeping the engagement ring a secret at customs?

  1. Put a small note in the ring box that says something like “This is an engagement ring, please be discreet”.
  2. Join a separate queue to your partner when you arrive at airport security. This way you are not too close in the event of a bag search.
  3. Make sure there is nothing suspicious in your bag that could encourage a bag search. Things like laptops, electronics, toiletries that break liquid quantities regulations.
