My pretty pretty has gone to Shane Co to be re-dipped, cleaned, and re-sized. I almost lost it down a sink the other day because it slipped right off while I was washing my hands! I’m lonely without it though, so I’m wearing my substitute ring.
Do you have a substitute ring you wear when your real engagement ring is gone or you can’t wear it for another reason? Post a pic of your real ring and your substitute!
My real ring:
And my sub – a little silver thing with a fake ruby that I got in the shop at work the first day I forgot to wear my real one.

@sweetcrackers: I don’t have a substitue ring but when I don’t have my set I just wear my original wedding band
We had a spontaneous Vegas wedding so we didn’t have any rings during the ceremony. We used sterling and stainless steel ones.

I have had my substitute ring on for the entire week, because I am having something fixed on my usual. Here’s the sub.

My ring is at the jeweler because a diamond fell out, so I wear this band that my husband actually proposed with. It was my great-grandmother’s, but it’s a little big.

This is my current substitute for my set. I don’t love it but it works… And it’s sturdy 🙂 I needed something super flat for work – at a can and bottle redemption center. I think that if my fingers swell when I get pregnant, I’ll get a fake-o set from a store like Claire’s.

Wow I’ve posted this a ton of times… but the top ring is my back up ring 🙂

I have a substitute. I’m an artist/ painter, occasional scultpure as a result I work with chemicals and things that could potentionally affect my original engagment ring. So I have a substitute (moissanite) that can withstand my chemicals.
