At our weddingbee meet up yesterday, some of the girls were talking about stunt rings. I have never heard of a stunt ring until last night.
I never realized people did this. What it is, is a fake ring that you wear for your honeymoon. Just in case you lose it.
Well, now I”m obsessed with finding the perfect stunt ring. I thought maybe I should get one that I really like, that is different from mine. But now, I’m thinking about getting one that is almost identical or pretty similar to mine now. I need to get one that is gold because I have sensitive skin but looking for cz stone. I even considered getting a colored stone.. hmmm… lot’s to think about. I need to decide before I go on my honeymoon in April.
Any of you bees, have one?
Show me some pics if you got them.

Not sure I’d call it a stunt ring but I just got a plain palladium band to wear when we travel or may get roughed up and dirty. My wedding band is going to be 3/4 eternity which I would NOT want to lose for anything.

I need a stunt ring and quickly! I was going to go with something completely different, but I don’t really feel like spending a lot of money. I’m going to raid my jewelery box and see if I can find something that works for our Mexico trip, but I still want a pretty stunt ring for regular use 🙂
(And I absolutely loved our meetup Yrret!!! So fun!)

I don’t have any pics, but I think that’s a really cool idea. My friend used to order “look alike” jewelry from this site, they have some pretty fake ones!
This is different from mine, but I like it:

@Blueshoes – that would be pretty to have just for fun, stunt ring or no!

Blueshoes- those are perfect stunt rings! I found several that I like 🙂
I think I’m going to go with one of their cocktail rings!

You girls have to do this. I think it is so cool that I’m going ring shopping. So many pretty rings.

I sure do! I never travel with my real e-ring. I have a costume ring that closely resembles my real baby. I use the fake when I travel, go to the beach, AND go to work ( if you saw what I have to touch, you would too!)

I seriously want one of these now, lol thanks for the idea yrret! They have one just like my ring, same size and setting for $15

Funny enough, but Walmart usually has some cute, cheap rings for about $10, sparkly and fake as can be!

I have a stand in wedding ring. I wear it when I’m using my hands doing something that could potentially ruin my real ring which has pave set diamonds. (I had a rough year with my engagement ring so I am paranoid.) So for example I wore it kayaking or hiking on the honeymoon but for lounging by the pool I wore my real ring. And now I wear the stand in to work.
Also for a time during my engagement when my real ring was in pieces, I bought myself a sapphire ring to stand in. I though about just getting a cheap look-alike but felt after all my emotional trauma I deserved a nice stand in. 🙂
Heres pics of similar rings to mine:
Stand in Wedding Band – it has the similar miligrain edges to my real band
Stand in Engagement (but in white gold)

I just ordered this (from Etsy seller esdesigns) as my stunt-double.
Commercial rings weren’t even an option for me since I have freakishly small fingers (3.75) and most rings only come in sizes 5 and up. So glad Etsy is around!

I got a travel ring specially made because I’ll be traveling for a few years. All the cz rings I found didn’t come in half sizes, and I’m a 5.5. Five is too small and six is too large. So I had to eliminate all the great costume jewelry out there. I ended up finding a white sapphire ring at zales for 30 bucks. The setting was a gigantic halo in sterling and I thought it was too bulky. I got it reset in yellow gold so I don’t have to worry about rhodium plating.
It’s a little big 8 mm, so maybe I’ll get mugged 🙂

My mom has a “stunt ring” that she wears when she travels and she gets so many compliments on it. It was a $10 ring!!!
