So we dropped my ring off to the jewellers to have it resized and the rhodium re-plated
Fiance noticed over lunch I kept fidgeting, so suggested I buy a stand in ring
Here it is! My engagement ring for the next 2 weeks!
Metal: dubious silver-plated
Stone: maybe cz
I mean, it doesn’t look too bad but I can DEFINITELY feel all $30 of it haha. We’ll see the state of it when I get my own ring back after consistent wear
Show us your stand in rings! Share specs, if you have them, which I obviously don’t

Very nice! We are just getting plain 10k white gold bands as a “stand in” for vacations or activities where we aren’t comfortable using the real sets. sbl99 :

This is my stunt-double. It’s a 1.5 carat equivalent cushion cut cz from Berricle.

This is my alternative ring if I want to switch things up, otherwise it’s a rhr.
1.23ct GIA true brilliant cushion, U/V color, completely eye clean SI1:
And a “stand-in” 1ct CZ for when I’m considering buying a classic round brilliant solitaire and don’t have the cash flow for it 😂 (excuse the burns- it’s an old pic and I worked in a restaurant then!)

Ring I got free off Wish, and my Princess Di/Kate ring knockoff from QVC. I don’t think the wish ring would ever pass for a real stone, but hey, it was only $2!
