Anyone wear a less expensive wedding set (simulated diamonds or ebay moissys for example) when going somewhere precarious or on vacation? My husband mentioned it now that I have my upgraded set (almost 3ctw) he thinks it’s s good idea. I have never given it any thought. I kinda just assumed once it’s on my finger, it would just stay there. Am I out of the loop? Do alot of you bees do this? Feel free to post your sparklies, i love seeing them! Stats too!

I don’t have anything yet but I’m working on something. I want a pear moissanite but it’s hard to track down the exact stone right now. I am looking into harro gem (moissanite too) and hope to find one that tickles my fancy.
I am behind the idea of having a stand in ring for many reasons, even though my ring and wedding band are insured, I couldn’t bare the thought of something happening to my babies. I am concerned when we take trains out of NYC around 4 am sometimes or when traveling that something could happen. I find myself twisting my ER around.
Plus I just love the sparkle of moissanite and honestly will probably have more than one ring over the years anyway. I love bling and I’m sure my taste will change. My moissanite earrings outperform my diamond studs by a lot and that’s why I’m definitely leaning towards a moissanite stand in.

allthingsthatsparkle : i can relate, i definitely have rolled my diamonds around a time or two lol and I guess I can’t complain because that just means more sparklies for me lol never had a moissanite but I mean I’m not gonna say no😁

When I travel, I just don’t bring my e-ring with me. I wear my wedding band which only has pave 3/4 of the way, so I can just turn it to the plain side if I’m going through areas that are less safe. I’ve thought of using a stand in for the e-ring, but eventually decided it didn’t make sense to me to still wear something shiny, if the whole point of not wearing a shiny e-ring for safety reasons is what I wanted. Some people won’t be able to tell if the stand-in is real or not, so… I could still get robbed (that was my concern). I can understand using a stand-in set if not wanting to lose the real ones on the trip is the reason, not because of getting robbed.

I have a silicone band for any time I don’t want to wear my engagement ring for any reason. I feel naked with nothing on that finger. My Fiancé and I have matching silicone ‘thin blue line’ Qalo rings.

I’ve always just worn mine. It’s insured so why not? I’ve even swam in the ocean with it.

Yes, do it especially if you are going traveling. Thieves can spot tourists miles away and jewelry is easily listed in the ocean or pools. Don’t risk loosing or damaging your beautiful expensive set, go with a cheap cz set, that way it’s no real loss if something happens to it
