Which ring are you talking about replacing? The e-ring or the wedding band?

My sister bought a cheap ring to wear while she was pregnant (her hands were too swollen to wear her wedding set). 

I think the fake rings will look ok, but honestly– what are you so worried about? This is LIFE, what’s the point of having a ring you never wear? Diamonds and sapphires are the hardest stones available, if you get it checked regularly to ensure none of the stones are loose, I really don’t think you could do that much damage to it just by bumping it inot a few things.

I have a fake ring to wear for tough stuff— if it gives you peace of mind, go for it.

the everyday rings are pretty, but i really love your original set. i understand your paranoia about losing a diamond tho. i lost a diamond 3 months after i got engaged, so i always worry when i bang my hand on something or when my rings snag on my clothes. i haven’t lost anymore diamonds tho (knock on wood!), so i’m not quite as paranoid about it as i used to be. if it will ease your mind, go for it 🙂

Is it insured?  Then the lost diamonds would be covered.  You could also reset the sapphire into something less fussy to wear everyday.

You could sit knock one of the diamonds out of that other ring you showed there loose as well.  I’d say if your really really worried then I would honestly reset the sapphire with a diamond on either side to make a 3 stone ring with a plain band and wear the wedding band below it or buy a plain one to go below it.  You could also trade in your old setting to cover the cost or hold on to it and pass it on to your kids.

ETA: A lot of people were showing of bezel set halo rings in another thread.  You could change your e-ring design to a bezel one with channel set diamonds and then they would all be secure and you wouldn’t have to worry about them falling out.   Sort of like this:
