I got a ring on sale from JC Penny that works as my stunt double. I got it out of the jewelry case. If it is something you will use for travel, etc, you might as well invest in a decent one. I used mine for vacation, since I didn’t want to take my real ering.

What a gorgeous ring, I love the setting!

I suggested to Fiance a stunt double ring for when we travel and when we take our honeymoon… it did not go over well. He said it’s insured and if anything happened to it, we would just replace it. He said if I didn’t feeling comfortable wearing the e-ring, I could just wear the band, but I would not be wearing a stunt double.

Those rings look very similar.  I’m definitely going to look for a look-a-like.  Love the idea for vacation!  I was stressing wearing my e-ring in the ocean for fear of leaving it in the safe in my room, lol!  Thanks for the awesome idea!!

@Aure: I don’t have a stunt double although I’ve looked. I can’t find anything I like because all the Cz’s are huge and unrealistic to me. So I am talking to my husband about just getting me a plain 2mm white gold band I can wear, that way my finger is not naked. As far as the the silver goes as to not turn your fingers green .925 silver is a good quality and isn’t the cheap kind that you get with the jewlery from clairs, I own tons of pieces in .925 and have never had a problem with my fingers turning green or the silver looking tarnished, and if it does a good polish and its as good as new 🙂 I think the set you picked out is lovely!

I got a stunt set from Amazon free with points that I had from a loyalty programme.

It doesn’t look identical to my ring, but it’s close at a glance.

@Aure: My engagement ring is .925 sterling silver and I have never had a green/discolored finger problem. However, each person is different and have different sensitivity levels to different metals. It looks beautiful and most people assume it’s white gold with half the price (although I correct them and tell them it’s sterling silver lol).

Although my stunt double actuallly has a white gold/diamond counterpart that I found purely by accident, it’s about 4x my fiance’s budge. So my real ring will not look anything like my stunt double. However, it does look antique, which is what I want, so I figured it was close enough (our jeweler ended up being wolves in sheep’s clothing, so we returned the ring and are currently awaiting the results of a credit card dispute…hence stunt double). If the ring weren’t too expensive, though, I’d definitely consider just getting it:

 

Real antique ring from Marlene Harris Collection

 

And stunt double from Overstock!

 

By the way, to the bee who was concerned about sterling silver, you should be just fine. I’m guessing the issue with the stunt double may have done more with the fact that it was from Icing than the fact it was silver.

I have a stunt double.  But I didn’t even try to find one that looked like my set.  I just got a cz eternity band set in rhodium-plated sterling silver.  I think it cost me about $30.

I actually like having the look of something totally different once in a while.  I got just a band because I tend to use my stunt double when I’m doing stuff outside so I didn’t want a big solitaire in those situations anyway.

I have been keeping my eye out for a stunt double but honestly I haven’t seen anything close to my Engagement Ring. I am really hoping to find something as I really don’t want to wear my Engagement Ring around on the beach etc.

I dont have a picture but I actually found a pretty good stunt double for mine at Walmart. I stumbled across it on vacation and bought it on impulse in case I was ever with out my ring. It was $30 and it hasnt turned my finger green but I have only worn it twice.
