Avon’s Sterling Silver rings are awesome. They dont tarnish and people always give me compliments on them. These 3 Ive been wearing for about a month until I get my real engagement ring on my finger lol The 2 bands were matching bands to the “Wedding Sets” you could buy but I bought them seperate.

I have also been thinking of getting a stand in ring for vacations.  I’ve been looking at Pawn America and other pawn shops or antique stores for something under $100 but haven’t found anything yet.  I might try looking around on Etsy too.  My engagment ring isn’t an heirloom or super expensive or anything I just hate the thought of losing it or worrying about it while on vacation!  Plus it’d be fun to have a stand in with more colorful stones.

missjz:  Just one thing to consider (not a judgement, I totally respect your choice, please don’t attack me!), it is most likely fine to travel with your ring. I have worn my to every continent and in pretty rough places (including Mexico). If it never leaves your finger, it is fine. The only time I have taken mine off overseas was to swim in the ocean and I put it in my hotel safe with my passports and it is fine.

Why I suggest this is that the odds of someone stealing it abroad are the same as someone stealing it here. If you have a stand in (especially one just as nice or nicer), you are actually setting yourself up at a higher risk of being robbed/harmed.

What my friends and I do when we are in really violent/up and coming places do is just wear a band and/or flip their rings around so the diamond isn’t visible. That way you don’t bring attention to yourself and still show you are takend!

I’m also a 3.5/4 and ended up getting a Berricle one from Amazon in size 4.  I bought it while my ring was being repaired.  It’s very different from my regular ring, and after a few days I really missed my ring!  I found that Berricle does have a small selection of size 4, better than most places.  The ring was very affordable and comfortable!
