While everyone else may be chilling out for the holiday season, recently engaged actress Gabrielle Union and a few of her girlfriends decided to hop a plane to the Bahamas for a little fun in the sun. The 41-year-old Being Mary Jane star even took to the sandy beaches to show off her banging body in a red hot bikini and cowgirl hat. However, something appeared to be missing from her fab frame — her engagement ring!

Gabrielle’s boyfriend of four years, NBA player Dwyane Wade, proposed to her with a beautiful 8.5 carat diamond ring a little over a week ago and the two took Instagram to celebrate the joyous occasion. However, in recent photos of the beauty on vacay with her gal pals, she’s showing everything but her sparkler.

So why isn’t Gabby sporting her massive rock?

We’ve come up with a couple reasons as to why the Think Like a Man starlet opted to not wearing her engagement ring on her fun-filled “#islanddiving” trip. One reason may be that her ring hasn’t been perfectly sized for her finger — hey, it’s a possibility?!

The other reason? Safety.

In one of Gabrielle’s vacation photos, the Nebraska native goes swimming with the sharks and we can imagine that’s just one of the many activities she has in store. With that being said, our gal more than likely decided to keep her ring out of harms way of being damaged, lost, or even stolen while away from home.

Smart move, Gabby!
