I have been really bad today and brought TWO new ringsfrom a pawn shop!
The solitaire is a stand in for those times I need to send my ring off to be cleaned and can’t bare the thought of being ‘naked’ and only cost me £100, the other is for when/if I get pregnant! I’m thinking that with the weight gain I won’t have anything that fits (and this will no doubt make me sad seeing a ringless finger!) so I have gone for a bigger size. It’s suposed to be sapphire but as it was only £85 I’m doubting it is and will take it to the jewelers tomorrow to see if I found an amazing bargain. I really like the half tension set side diamonds and never thought that I would go for a dark colour but I really like it!
Has anyone else done something crazy like this?
Herre are the pics 🙂

Very pretty! Is the solitaire a diamond?

Lab created sapphires could easily be in that price range. Great finds!

Yep! I got a $25 stand in from AladdinsCave on Etsy, since my ring is really high profile and is easily damage-able

Oh and I also got a sapphire set from Berricle, not sure if I like it though. Sorry for bad quality pics, I’m on mobile and it’s all I have 😛

Wowsers they are stunning! I think it’s nice to be able to switch them up sometimes too

Silly question…I’ve never thought of a stand in ring. What would you use it for other than cleaning/traveling? Also, where are some ideas to get one? I’ve heard some get on Etsy, so any reliable shops you can pass along?

Neither did I to be honest, until I saw someone else post something about them on the Bee. I will use the solitaire for work as I am a waxing therapist and hate having to take my ring off especially as I have a few male clients and don’t want to invite any unwelcome awkward moves! The second one is too big (but still fits on another finger) and I am thinking I can have this on when/if I am pregnant as I am sure my fingers will swell! Either way I think it’s nice to have a few right hand rings and also can use them as stand in’s.

My bargain band was 1$. It’s sterling silver and I pair it with my ering on swollen days
