@wanderingbrunette:  I am also on the hunt for a FAKE engagement ring! Mine needs to be re-dipped soon, and will have to be soldered to my wedding ring, and for our honeymoon… it’s awlways a good idea to have a good FAKEIE available! I found some cute ones at walmart for $10 a while ago, but they didnt have the same ones again when I went back this week. Will have to check Target and some of the online stores mentioned. Welcome to the bee… make sure to let us know where you get your perfect FAKEIE ๐Ÿ™‚

PS… If you hadn’t noticed, I completely agree with you about the terminology… mountains out of molehills people! I have better things to do lol

@This Time Round:  Dude, who is honestly HURT by the OP’s use of the word “fake” to describe a fake ring?

That is seriously ridiculous! Please, don’t guilt trip some brand new member because half our members are so uptight they can’t handle someone elses word choice.

@Miss Leopard:  Thanks for pointing me out.

If you notice, I did not call her out on her use of the F-word based on her original post.  Altho there would have been nothing wrong with that… as others did, it made sense to advise her as a NEWBee, that YES some Bees get upset when someone implies that a Non-Diamond ERing is a FAKE one.  Fact of life here in the Hive.

What I did do… was call her out on her 2nd Post… the “rub your face” attitude that she exhibited when other Bees had done nothing wrong IMO than “inform” her that the F-word does cause problems for some women here

And rightly so…

I don’t think anyone wants to have the word Fake used to describe a piece of jewellery they love, just because it doesn’t have a Diamond in it.

That is offensive.

It is not a Fake anything… it is a REAL Ring…

What the OP is in search of isn’t a Fake anything either… it too is a REAL RING

It is called a “stand in” what she wants for her situation.

Sorry if my voicing that opinion upset you… BUT I have REAL concerns about how others are treated on WBee.

No one should be belitteld for VALID “Engagement Ring Choices”

@wanderingbrunette:  You SHOULD get one from berricle if you can wait a few days! They’re awesome and ship really fast. I live in Canada too and when I ordered from them it took less than a week to arrive. Plus they’re silver so you don’t need to worry about preventing the green finger, in case you end up wanting to keep it ๐Ÿ™‚

@blushpinkbride:  + 1000……a wedding ring forum should never cause a riot over someone’s use of the word fake.

Let’s lighten up ladies! No need to be so sensitive. She was’t calling YOUR ring fake, she was referring to one she was planning on purchasing for HERSELF-and it’s not her REAL ring.

Personally I dont care what people call things on this board. Stand-in and Fake are the same thing…a substitute or to simulate.

Sometimes this board gets nasty…just enjoy life people. I was in the next room to a man that died today. Fake or stand in…whatever! Stop the hate and just enjoy life!

@wanderingbrunette:  Try a Shoppers Drugmart! I saw some very pretty cz rings there, on the makeup side of the store. Some of them even came with a matching band.

@This Time Round:  You have to be kidding me. She can call her fake ring, anything she wants. PERIOD.

Lol… so anyways… I got a great fake ring at Sears in Southgate, looks really believable, and I paid $15 for it. I wore it to a bridal show when my ring was MIA.

@wanderingbrunette:  You’ve got spunk, and you’ve said what’s been on the collective mind of most of us. I like you. ๐Ÿ™‚

@This Time Round:  I am not attacking you here or ‘singling’ you out b ut I just had to say this, because I think the whole debate has become ridiculously silly now. The OP was NOT using the term FAKE to denote the authenticity of the stones used in her ‘stand-in’ ring, nor the REALITY of the ring’s existence. The fake/real factor relates to the issue of her actual or original engagement ring vs. another ring that will occasionally take its place. If you prefer to refer to that as a stand-in, then great. But technically, it is also the OP’s FAKE engagement ring and it has nothing to do with the stones/their origin or any other factor except for the fact that it is not the one with which she was proposed to.

Of course, I’m sure everyone realizes that this is what the OP is referring to so really, why the unnecessary drama over semantics and jargon and technicalities? I’m pretty sure that most women here are mature enough not to be offended by the use of a very valid, normal word.

@This Time Round:  Racism is offensive. Sexism is offensive. Human rights violations are offensive.

Talking about buying a cheap ring and calling it her fake ring because it is a substitute for her actual ring is not offensive.

Sorry, but you won’t get me on board with that one!

@This Time Round:  Good lord she is not calling anyone’s ring FAKE but the one she is looking to buy for herself as a stnd in for her REAL engagement ring. Anyone who has a problem with that does not have enough going on to occupy their own mind.

And it would be nice if you could stop giving off the impression that Weddingbee is some kind of exclusive club…it’s not!
