I’ve been looking for wedding rings for us and I found these http://www.etsy.com/shop/RomasBanaitis and OMG i’m absolutely in love with them. I showed them to FH and he REALLY liked them too. Alas–they’re Titanium and therefore not resizeable. This puts me ill at ease. What if i gain weight? what if rock climbing continues to make my fingers fatter? What about pregnancy? Baaahh!! I don’t want to not be able to wear a ring.
Then FH (in all his brilliance) suggested we buy “extras.” The rings will be about $50 a pop. At first i was like “nooooo i want to be able to wear the ring we get married with!” then i was like “wait…i’m not a sentimental person. nevermind” and am actually really liking the idea of getting extras of these so i can get them and wear them for always.
Thought i’d throw this out there though–is it stupid of us to want to do this? silly? frivolous? I know there’s always “just wait and see if you need them and buy them then” but what if the seller moves on to bigger and better things? I’d rather have them now and be sure we have them.
what’d you guys think? has anyone else been crazy enough to do this?

@lergx6: I think this is a great idea! Especially at only $50 each. You definitely WILL need a bigger size ring during your pregnancy!
But, if it’s an option, I might wait to buy another one until your current ring doesn’t fit. That way, you can buy the exact size you are at that point. If it’s a thing that comes and goes, might want to get a full size bigger as an extra.

I almost ordered Darling Husband a couple of extra rings because I know he’ll lose his at some point (which is precisely why we chose a $50 ring for him). I don’t think it’s a bad idea to have a spare one on hand. One of my BMs is super athletic (and super forgetful) so she’s already gone through 2 or 3 rings now, although the odd time she finds one she thought she lost and it’s a nice surprise, LOL!

Wow, those rings are gorgeous and unique. I love the idea of buying them in a couple of sizes, and I would go ahead and buy them now to ensure you can get the exact same design. Awesome idea! (I’m more practical than sentimental, too. LOL)

FI’s ring is about $60, and I’m debating buying an extra now, or waiting until he loses the first one. I think once I start working over the summer and actually have money, I’ll buy an extra 1-2 rings to stow away. Unfortunately, mine’s not that easy because it was custom-made, so if I ever lose it, I’ll need another one cast. Luckily the jeweler still has the mold, so I don’t think it would cost the entire amount, but it still won’t be cheap. When I get pregnant I’ll probably just wear my rings on a necklace or something.

If you do decide to get the extra rings you can bring them with you and tuck them away somewhere so they were at least at your ceremony, maybe they would be more special to you that way. I know I’m a dork, but I love it!! I am sentimental.

I thought about doing that for Fiance, too :). I think we’re still going to look for a decently priced gold ring, but we might end up doing the multiple ring thing.
