I absolutely LOVE my e-ring and the matching curved band, but I’m considering getting a cheap band to wear on certain occassions. FI and I like to go kayaking and I love visiting amusement parks with my friends and I am slighty scared to wear my set during these situations in case I lose it. I’ve found a few CZ sterling silver bands I really like online for under $50 but I would like to know what stores you guys recommend if you have something similar. I do not want to spend more than $50 on a back-up band, but I do want it to look nice and be durable. Below are a few options I’m considering but I’m afraid the quality isn’t the best:
Sterling Silver CZ Ring from Overstock:
Set of five CZ Silvertone Stackable Eternity Rings, also from Overstock
Stackable CZ Rhodium-plated rings, on Etsy
Do you have any recommendations similar to these for under $50?

I have a 2mm sterling silver band that I got for $12 on ebay. Works for when I want something on my finger, but not the whole shebang, ya know?

That’s an interesting idea. I’m terrified of losing mine but I usually just take it off if I’m doing something like gardening or swimming. I love the idea of a back-up that’s ok if it gets lost.

my wedding band is a fake. we couldn’t and won’t be able to afford a real diamond for a very long time. my e-ring is real but we put it on a credit card. we didn’t want to do that again. it’s much more sparkly in person than what the website shows and you can’t tell the difference between it and the real thing (my e-ring). i don’t have a pic of both together on my finger so here’s the link to it (in sterling silver):
and here’s my e-ring:

I’m not getting a silver band. I find they bend way too easily, and I am and will be working in a profession that requires a LOT of hand-work (nusring). I’m getting two bands: one plain, engraved gold band to wear at work, labs and clinical practice, and one full eternity band very similar to the one you posted first in white gold, to match my engagement ring.
My engagement ring stone is very large, and with the halo it’s a big ring. Honestly, I get annoyed wearing it all the time, so I’m getting one band that I can wear with or without it, and one band that I can wear at work. I also love mismatched bands, so I’ll likely spend a lot of time wearing both at once.
Each band costs about $220.

Mine isn’t that cheap since it’s gold but I got it from weddingringhotline.com and thought their service was excellent.

Thanks y’all! It’s super sparkly and shiny and it does look a little bright compared to my 18k gold engagement ring, but I’m probably going to only wear them separately because they don’t sit flush anyway.

I own the sterling silver CZ ring from Overstock and it’s lovely. I don’t use it as a wedding band, but bought it because it was fun and under $50.00. I need my wedding ring sized (made smaller), so I will use it while it’s at the jewellers.

I have a set from Berricle. I wore the engagement ring when I went to clinicals and things like that, but I also have a stainless steel set of stacked rings that I’ll probably wear for certain things as well.
