I had to send my ring away for 5 weeks. I thought about getting a stand in ring, but couldn’t find any I liked! So I ended up just waiting for my real e-ring to come back.

Mine has been away for three weeks now with the jeweller.  I wore my promise ring in its place for the first two weeks, but I just recently received an anniversary RHR from my FI which I am now wearing in my e-ring’s place.  I’d say it looks pretty e-ring like considering it was listed on the etsy shop as an e-ring.  After my ring is back I still plan to switch it up with my e-ring on certain occassions, just for fun.

I have one, and it looks totally different.  I actually like wearing just a little sparkly band when my set is gone for maintenance, because when it comes back it makes my diamond seem so much larger since I’ve not had one on my hand for so long! LOL!!!

This is what I wear:

@linnylou_88:  yeah, we do. We have super cheap sterling silver bands that we wear in place of our real rings for vacations. Especially if we plan on scuba diving. We just got them in the mail a couple of weeks ago. I’m going to wear it while my ring is getting professionally cleaned and redipped and again when we go on our honeymoon.

@linnylou_88:  I JUST bought one this morning! I don’t want to take mine to Mexico next months so I searched on the bee and found alot of people used Berricle.  I thought I wanted something totally different from my own, but actually found this which is pretty similar. I also read alot of reviews for Overstock, in the end Berricle has a 30% off sale going on so thats who I went with. good luck!

I bought one at Metalsmiths for $40 that looks exactly like my e-ring, and another from walmart for $5 that looks like an engagement ring, but different than my e-ring. I wear them when I’m travelling, or swimming, or other activities where I don’t want to risk losing my real ring.

@edgebee:  I got it on ebay!  It’s CZ and Silver with a Rhodium finish to look like white gold and keep it from tarnishing… I love it!

Here’s a link to the ebay store I bought it from… I don’t see one exactly like it but I didn’t look too hard. I do see one that is princess/round and it’s really cute!  They were great!

I have a band that I bought from berricle that I wear to the beach and any place I don’t want to lose my ring set. but I only got that after I was married. I don’t see much of a point in having a stand in e-ring. but that’s just me.

I have two plain bands…one in tungsten and one in platinum.  I wear the tungsten to work because I am a nurse and the hand sanitizer has done a number on any metal I’ve tried outside of the tungesten.  I wear the platinum one when I want a less blingy look.  The platinum band is a Tiffany one I got on e-bay for a steal which is the only reason I have it.

@linnylou_88:  I got one, but it arrived with a side stone missing 🙁  I haven’t returned it yet, but I need to.  I was considering these
