    I dont have a stunt for either, but if I were to get one it’d just be for the e-ring.  My band has diamonds too, but only cost a fraction of the price of the e-ring so if it were to be lost, it wouldnt be too big a deal to replace for only a 1k or so.  And if its damanged and say a stone fell out, they are small and really inexpensive to replace.

    I didn’t get a stunt ring for either… and wore it to Tahiti/Bora Bora, and recently just went to the Carribeans with it on. I even walked around in NYC at night with them on; just the large stone turned into my palm. I have a lot of pave work on both rings and nothing happened… *knock on wood* we also have our rings insured. I swam/snorkeled/hiked with both of my rings on.

    I actually bought a cheaper anniversary band since my e-ring and wedding band are very flashy. The band still has something to it, not just plain, but it is not the eye-catching design of my other rings. I was going to originally buy a stunt ring – probably a set or just band – but  abandoned it for the anniversary band. My thought was that during our honeymoon, I don’t want to draw attention to myself. My real rings would do so and so would a stunt ring. The simpler band worked for me.

    I just have a fake e-ring.  Not sure I’m keeping it though.

    I do have a stunt ring but ironicly only for the wedding band. If I am doing something especially scary I just don’t wear the e-ring at all and wear my plain rose gold band. I figure if I am doing something foolish that I shouldn’t wear MY e-ring I should be wearing ANY e-ring (This normally includes rock climbing, ice climbing, surfing, digging wells, traveling to developing nations etc)

    I’m actually going to have my mom (who makes jewelry) make me a simple silver wedding band to wear on my honeymoon and other times I won’t want to wear my real rings (camping, etc).  I’m not even taking my rings on our honeymoon, because we’re going to be doing a lot of active stuff, including scuba diving, and I don’t want to risk losing them and neither of us trusts hotel safes. 

    I don’t think you need to necessarily get somethng that looks like your real rings, or even looks like a traditional engagement ring.  Lots of women wear just a simple band, and you can get a cheap one on Amazon for like $50.  Way better to lose a $50 ring than your wedding set that could be worth thousands, even if you have insurance, because IMO the actual rings are sentimentally irreplaceable.

    Yeah, mine looks nothing like my engagement ring (although I kind of wish it did) and was like $20.

    I don’t have stunt rings.  I will be wearing my wedding ring and have e-ring on a necklace for part 1 of my honeymoon.  We are going to Asia where it is freezing so I don’t have to worry about it as much.  

    I will be wearing both of my e-ring and band during part 2 at Maldives.
