Here’s mine. When it isn’t on stand-in duty, I use it as a RHR.

@s2bmrscook:  Your $5 Claire’s stand-in is surprisingly cute!

I dont have a stand-in, but Im sure I’ll get one in the future.

Not terribly “cheap” but when I choose not to wear my Sparklies (rare… means I need to protect the Diamonds for some really serious reason) I have my Plain WBand to go-to

My Plain WBand is an exact match to my Sparkly one, just no Diamonds.

Here is a Photo of the 2 WBands together

Personally, I don’t really get sparkly stand-ins… in so much as most Bees say they use them to travel with.  If I am concerned about the “safety” of my Diamonds enough to leave them at home, then I figure I should be equally concerned about a Stand-In… cause trust me the Bad Guy isn’t going to stop before he mugs you to ask “Excuse me, just checking that is 2 CTW of REAL Diamonds right ?”

EDIT TO ADD – I should add that your Stand In is very pretty.  Having one in this particular instance (good rings out at the Jewellers etc) that makes sense to me.  But as I am a bit of Jewellery Lover, if it should be such an “at home” situation (vs travel) then I’d just wear another ring (costume or real) from my collection so I don’t suffer empty ring syndrom.

@This Time Round:  I’ll wear a sparkly stand-in when I am afraid of loosing my real diamond. If I’m in a shady situation, I turn all of my rings around, cheap or not. 🙂

This is my super cheap stand in:

2mm, sterling silver, a whopping $6 on Amazon. I originally bought it to see if I liked the look of a plain thin wedding band, and now I use it whenever I need to not have a diamond on my hand. Love it.

@s2bmrscook:  I wear my plain band when I dont have my rings for whatever reason!
