Okay bees! I need advice! I’m trying to pick out a cheap ring to wear on vacation. Originally i was just going to wear my normal set. I always wear my ring and my Mom who has a ring 8x more expensive than mine has worn hers to the beach and in Mexico before. However, DH keeps telling me that he doesn’t want me wearing it in a foreign country like Mexico or Dominican Republic (I’m going to both within the year for our delayed honeymoon and family graduation trip). Anyways long story short I need help picking a stand in ring!!! I’m thinking just a band would be the best choice and something cheap. So here goes, here are some of the ones I’ve seen before that I like.
2.5mm sterling silver $19.99
3mm, sterling silver and cubic zirconia $34.99
2mm, sterling silver and cubic zirconia, $36.99
2.6mm sterling silver and cubic zirconia $53.99

sterling silver, stackable rings, in whatever colors I want (white and rose?), 1.5mm $19.99 a piece
Oh and FYI I wear a size 5 ring and this is what I wear

If you’re worried about saftey and drawing attention to youself then I’d just go with a plain band.

I wouldnt be concerned if you are going on a resort and plan on staying there….
However, if you are worried anyway, I would just go with a plain band like the first one.

Check out Kohls you can get something that looks great for incredibly cheap. They have similar styles to a few of your options.

I think DH is more worried I’m going to lose it.. but yea the attention grabbing would also be secondary reason. I’m personally not worried about it especially since I think we’ll mostly be on the resort but I’m not going to complain about getting to buy a new ring for fun 🙂

@Loves a Fire: ooh thanks for the kohls suggestion. Do they have good sizes? I ask b/c I have a smaller ring size. Thats what stopped me from just grabbing one from Claires/Icing.

I also have a “vacation ring” set. We travel a lot and we like to be very active on vacation. The last thing I want to think about is possibly losing my gorgeous ring (especially since it’s slightly too big). Plus when we go kayaking or do anything that involves using my hands, I prefer to leave the ring at home.
I got one that looks somewhat like my real ring. Don’t go too cheap or you’ll end up with a green finger (which happened to me in Puerto Rico due to a $5 ring I picked up at Walmart).

Claire’s sells size 5. I’ve looked for fakengagment rings there to wear to work.

A simple precious metal band would be my choice. It is classy and understated, and doesn’t attract the criminal eye very much.
CZ will attract the criminal element as much as the real thing (the guys who they take it to can tell the difference, but the guys at the bottom on the street usually can’t), and they generally go for more than just the ring.

@justagirlxo88: really? I looked in there today and the sales person said the smallest they had was a 6. I’ll have to look online.
