Just wondering how common it is to have a “stand-in”/backup CZ engagement ring. If you have one, does it look similar to your “real” ring, or is it totally different?
I need to send my engagement ring in for some work and I’m bumming about being without it for another 2 weeks!

I have a CZ one that looks somewhat similar to mine, but not exactly…bascially my e-ring without a halo. I got it on overstock.com for around $25 🙂

I only wear a different ring when I’m pregnant and have bigger fingers. I have tons of rings. I love them and collect them, but I only mix it up when my engagement ring/wedding band doesn’t quite fit. I don’t have any cz rings that look like my diamond ring. Not only do I think it would be a waste, but I also like to take the oportunity to see what it would be like to have something different. It always makes me appreciate my diamond ring more when it fits again after my baby has been born 🙂

Here. Looks almost identical except for some tiny details.
ETA: I will say that there was no cheap “backup” version of my ring, so we paid 200, because it’s gold and will last for a long time (more so than rhodium plated silver), and because that way I don’t notice it’s not the real deal when I have to wear it.

I have a sort of stand in. I didn’t have a ring for the first six or seven months I was engaged, so I found myself a really pretty peridot band and wore it. I still have it and wear it stacked with some other rings on my right hand when I don’t want to wear my heirloom ring.

I have a stand in for my wedding band, not my e-ring 😛

I plan on getting a stand in CZ ring. I am in nursing school and I work in a restaurant part time, so my hands come in contact with all sorts of yucky stuff I wouldn’t want touching my real ring!

I plan on having a stand in.. Well probably 2 one that’s similar and one that’s smaller for vacations so I don’t get stalked !

I bought a stand in wedding band for our honeymoon last month. We went to Asis ans on a cruise so left my real diamond rings home. It is cz from Target for like 10 dollars but looks really nice. I actually had two women on the trip compliment me on it and they thought it was real.

I wish I can find a CZ. My Fiance and I do a lot of traveling and I told him I wanted a CZ when traveling. Of course he doesn’t undertstand why but I can’t find anything close to my wedding ring.

Fiance bought me a stand-in for a week long vacation — my real ring is too loose and we have yet to get it resized, so I was extremely worried about losing it. My real ring is rather petite, but my stand-in is a giant plastic blue jewel, I call it my Kate Middleton ring LoL. I will probably don it again when it comes time to get my real ring resized.

I have a stand in ring. It’s nothing like my real ring, it’s silver criss cross style wide band with some very tiny bling on it, it was quite inexpensive but great for times when i can’t wear my e-ring for fear of it being damaged.

I have a back up, but it’s just a plain 4mm tungsten band with 18k yellow gold plating. No stones or cz.

I don’t have a stand in for my e-ring, but I do have a plainish rose gold band that I wear when we are out and about doing things that I would be afraid might damage my real ring.
