I think I’m going to get one once we start traveling again because I won’t swim with a diamond band.

yup! i planing on buying a stand in ring to travel with.  just not comfortable going on overseas vacations and swimming with my ring.  FI should be glad you want to have a little something on your ring finger all the time!  =)

I’m glad you posted this!  I am thinking about gettng a cheap sterling silver band to wear on our honeymoon when we’re at the pool/beach.  I’m terrified to wear my diamond somewhere it could easily get lost, but I really want to have something on my ring finger.  But I was wondering if it was weird to have a “fake” wedding band.  I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s thinking of doing this!

Not selfish.  You can get a titanium band for like $50.  If you were wanting a third ring w/ diamonds, that might be one thing.

I got a cheap sterling silver band with channel set cubic zirconias to wear on my trip to China.  With the high crime rate in some of the places we visited, I was thinking I should have gotten a plain band instead.

I’m looking for a fake e-ring to stand in when I’m watiressing.  So far all the cheapos at target and claires are way too big….so I think I’m gonna order “Bella’s engagement ring” from amazon.  Yes from Twilight….don’t judge.  lol

Selfish? Seriously?! You can get a titanium band for literally less than $10. Heck, this one’s less than $3! Titanium is extremely cheap right now. Does he realize this? Besides that fact, does he just expect you to never again buy jewelry anymore just because you already have some from the wedding? Sheesh! Go get your titanium band, girl. I think it’s a very good idea given the field you work in. i already have a stand-in, and i don’t have a wedding band yet. 😛

We’re getting my FI a stand-in ring because his is a bit loose. He’ll just wear it on vacations when we’re going to the beach. I just wear my band, but not my e-ring when we’re traveling.

I think I’m going to do this. My FI wasn’t to sure on the idea but I think it is very practical. I just plan to get a cheap silver or titanium band to wear when traveling abroad, swimming, etc.

I am going to do this for sure! I won’t be traveling with my diamond anywhere. If people feel like stealing from me abroad then they can have my cheap cubic zirconia.

As long as it’s not expensive, I don’t see why he would mind overmuch.  I just ordered myself a $20 silver band to act as a stand in for when my ring goes in the week before the wedding to be soldered (being without my REAL ring the week before the wedding will be bad enough, to not have ANYTHING on my ring finger would kill me!).  I’m also planning on wearing it on our honeymoon and when traveling…  And this sounds totally stupid, but I’m also planning on swapping it out when I take my ring off before getting in the shower.  It always seems like I’m so tired when I haul myself out of bed that mid-shampoo, without FAIL, my heart skips a beat when I realize my ring isn’t on my finger.  LOL.  Scary, I know, but I’m terrified of losing it.  I say go ahead and buy a less expensive stand-in band!

I had planned to get a plain white gold wedding band to wear while camping, swimming, doing yard work, etc., but after seeing @littlemissmango’s post, I may just go with titanium.  Can’t beat that price!
