I have a stand in set. I bought the 7mm ring to see if I liked that size stone and bought a ring I though would coordinate with it just for the hell of it. I didn’t expect/intend to ever end up wearing them since I’m not engaged yet (or married). My SO is waiting on me to finalize my custom design so it can be made etc.

Anyway, it’s a 7mm black sapphire with baguette sapphires and a 5 stone princess cut sapphire band (size 5) One of the prongs looks wide and strange in this pic, but it isn’t like that in real life:

And here’s the band with a peach colored Florida pearl:

@jenilynevette:  ohhh where did you get your CZ set? It’s pretty!

 

@bunnyharriet:  the pearl looks so pretty!

i don’t have a stand in set. Though if I have to go to sketchy places for my job, I just swap back to my promise ring.

I have one. I can’t find any pictures of it right now, but it’s the emerald halo set from Berricle. I wore it while I was doing my clinical rotations at the hospital. I was constantly putting on and removing gloves and I didn’t want to lose my ring in a glove (I heard two stories from other women that had lost their sets that way).  I also wore it to work because part of my job was to bring in shopping carts at the end of my shift. I worked in a not so good part of town that had a good bit of robberies, and I was usually in the dark, alone, walking all over the parking lot.

This is the ring Fiance and I bought as a temporary engagement ring a couple of days after he proposed – I wore it for a few months until we got my forever ring, and it’s what I had when we announced the engagement. Now I wear it as a RHR when I want some more bling! 🙂 It was only cheap though and the CZ stones have already gone cloudy – it makes me sad because it has a lot of sentimental value!

I have two stand-ins, hehe! That’s because I love jewelery 😉

 

I’m glad I have my stand-ins because my e-ring has been away for almost 2 months to have a custom band made for it. It’s been fun wearing my stand-in. 

 

It’s a diamond and gold ring but it was on sale and so affordable. I was initially going to wear it as my RHR but I’m using it as an e-ring at the moment. Pairing it with a rose gold band and my diamond eternity band. 

 

 

My other one is a white sapphire square halo:

 

 

I love your pink stand-in ring. I know what you mean about thinner bands making it more comfortable. I think a second band on the other side would look great!

@jenilynevette:  I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before, but I just love your real engagement ring! It’s so cool and modern looking. I’ve actually been looking for a similar style to get for a RHR.
