Just put it in some pocket of your clothing and don't declare. Nobody will ever look for it there at least I have never seen any customer perform body search.

: I have read a few postings regarding the fate of engagement rings and the "arbitrary" duty fees imposed by the Customs Agents at the Odessa Airport. I guess I am looking for some solid advice here. Obviously, I don't want to "Not" claim this piece on my Declaration Form upon entry. But, what course of action should realistically be taken and how high could an "arbitrary" duty fee go?
