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 ๐Ÿ™‚

(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 ๐Ÿ™‚

I think I’m going to go with one of their cocktail 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!)

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Heres pics of similar rings to mine:

Stand in Wedding Band – it has the similar miligrain edges to my real band

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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!!!
