I think a stand in ring is the perfect opportunity to get something totally different and a little crazy. I would show it off like it was my real ring and my bestie even tells people the cost of hers or at least what it would cost if it was real lol

I don’t see the need for a stand in ring in general.  I think getting one in silly and a complete waste.

My engagement ring is .59ct and my stand in is slightly bigger than 1ct. I don’t see a problem with it, I couldn’t find CZ for less than 1ct anywhere so I just rolled with it.

ETA: Mine is not for travelling, I’d wear my real set. It’s for when it has to be polished/worked on and I can’t wear it for two weeks while it’s being done.

I’m planning on getting a plain white gold wedding band for travel because I don’t like the idea of having to take off my jewelery to get on the airplane or even the idea of traveling out of country (which we plan to) with real diamonds. I’m too fearful of traveling with my engagement ring or even a fake one because I don’t want them thinking I actually have any expensive jewelery on me. So I’m just wearing a plain band.

@ashleyyyg: Why would you have to take your jewellry off to get on a plane?

We got engaged overseas and I wore the ring back on the plane. I didnt have to take it of for security or any other reason.

Anyhow, I think stand in rings are a bit silly too ๐Ÿ™‚ If you want more jewellry, just ask for more jewellry!

I wanted some smaller bling to wear to work so I just asked for a nice 5 stone wedding band, rather than a “stand in” ring for work.

You will be just as likely to be mugged for that fake ring as you will for the real one, even more so if its bigger! And your travel insurance (which everyone should be getting) will cover your ering being lost or stolen anyhow.

I just travel with my real set.  I’ve never been asked to take it off the airport.  They’ve been half way around the world scuba diving with me, hiked glaciers, snorkelling, climbed and so in. As long as it fits and stays on your finger, I think its safe .

@LessIsMoore:Whenever I go on planes they make you to take off of all of your jewelery and put it in a plastic dish when you go through security and put it on the scanner.

@ashleyyyg: Aww ๐Ÿ™ maybe its an American security thing. I wouldnt be comfotable with that either.

Leaving Australia, Asian and European countires I have never ever had to take off rings or earings.

@Mrs. Maple Syrup: its not a waste if your not spending a ton of money on it. I would never want to wear my e ring on vacation and I really would never wear it out of the country it means way too much. If something happened I would want it to happen to a stand in and not the real thing.

OP I say go for it, if you love it thats all that matters ๐Ÿ™‚

We are going to Italy for 2 weeks on our honeymoon and my rings will be coming with me. Personally I feel that the safest place for my rings to be is on my finger. I ride the subway thru some ghetto neighborhoods in Brooklyn everyday, than again I usually turn my e-ring around so it looks like a plain band. It’ll be a little harder to hide my eternity band, but I’m not too worried. Also we are insured thru jewelers mutual, which will cover them over seas.

If I have to send my e-ring out to be rediped, I will just wear my band. Engagement Ring is 14K and Band is Platinum.  When I upgraded my e-ring my finger was naked for 3 days… I tried wearing a different ring on that finger, but it just wasn’t comfy.

Also I would be careful, with a CHEAP stand-in, I don’t have metal allergies, but I have turned green from cheap jewelry before.

Why did you choose not to insure?

I read the title of this post and thought “WTF is a stand in ring?” Then I read the comments and I now understand what it is.

I’ve never heard of this idea before and never even thought twice about bringing my e-ring with me overseas..But if it makes you feel better, that’s all that counts.

I love the style you chose!
