Pretty! Anytime something like that happens (resizing, ect.) I wear my anniversary band my husband got me on our 1st wedding anniversary.

Its blue & white sapphires.

I have stacking bands – a couple tree bark bands and some 1mm bands in yellow and rose gold that altogether are 11mm in width – that I wear in these situations or when I do not wear my wedding rings for other reasons. I actually really like wearing them as they are so easygoing (no stones, etc) that I do not need to worry about them getting damaged, etc. I usually wear them on my left ring finger when I do have my wedding bands on.

I have had them on for the last month or so waiting for my new rings!

They sort of actually inspired my new set as I love the wider stacked look.

@OohShiny:  That’s really pretty! 

I have my old promise ring I would probably wear, but I have had no reason to not wear my ring for a few days yet.

I had two placeholders because it took a while for him to get me a ring, the first was my grandmother’s amethyst, and the 2nd was my grandmother’s pearl ring that another family member had “borrowed” over a decade ago. I used the pearl ring for my wedding ceremony until I could get the real one.

I definitely have a placeholder ring. I love it! I love wearing something while my wedding set is at the jeweler’s for maintenance.  It is a ring that came with a jewelery set that I will wear at my wedding. It was earrings, pendant and ring for a great price. They are white sapphires in silver. I’ll come back and post a picture later! It looks like an engagement ring.

@OohShiny:  Very cute!

I HATE the feeling of not having a ring on (also, I always wear a right-hand ring, so the feeling goes for both hands haha), but I have a simple diamond band that I wear on my left hand while my other rings are in the shop (and then an assortment of right-hand rings for the other side).

@OohShiny: That’s really cool.

Part of my line of work has my wife and I traveling to less-than-perfectly-safe areas of the globe.  During those times, my wife wears a placeholder ring – it was like a $10 jobber from Target.  She does the same when either of her two rings is in getting cleaned or repaired.

If she doesn’t go with a placeholder ring while traveling, at the very least, she removes the ‘expensive’ engagement one and just wears the very understated (and not particularly high dollar value) band.

I must admit, after 5 years of wearing my own… when I’m not wearing it (working in the yard) it feels kind of odd too.
