    I don’t see anything wrong with that idea and you have a good point about it getting gross. I have wanted to do the same thing because I bike commute a lot so I’m always taking off my ring while I ride and don’t want to lose it. I don’t think it’s cheating at all.

    I know lots of people who wear a ‘fakie’ because of their jobs.

    I feel for you on this. I am in a health care program and we are not allowed to wear jewelry in the clinic due to germs clinging to them and transporting them home. For your own safety, I would encourage your Fiance to get you a new ring to wear to work. It is difficult to completely clean the spaces in the ring.

    Maybe you can get a thin everyday band and when you get your wedding band, wear the three as stackables?

    I don’t see any problem with it.  DH and I both feel that whats important about the ring is not how it looks, but what is stands for.  I don’t see why it should matter if you have a more everyday ring. And maybe you could still get something special and different then what you hope your wedding band will look like??

    @alwaysmsh:  i think it’s a great idea.  i don’t think it’s cheating on your real wband.  it’s simply appropriate for your job.

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with getting a band for work purposes, but I personally wouldn’t put that pressure on my DH again. I know he agonized over my ering enough lol.

    I have a plain band (stainless steel) that I wear to work. I wear my ering on weekends and evenings. My job would destroy my ering (white gold 4 prong diamond solitaire).

    ETA: I talked with Fiance before I bought the ring and bought it on my own with his approval. He said he didn’t care if I bought it and that wearing a stand in was better than wearing no ring (destroying my ering wasn’t an option). I picked it out, ordered it, and started wearing it just to work within a week. It was like $7.
