@MrsBlah:  I’m also from the Buffalo area! Anyway, I don’t have a place holder myself as I just wear my wedding band if I don’t want to wear my ering, but have you tried Amazon?  They have really cheap jewelry that is 10/14k gold so it won’t turn your finger green!

I bought mine in palladium. It’s lightweight and does the trick. It won’t need to be dipped but it does get pretty scratched up and will need occassional polishing. I got it in 3mm but it comes in all widths (4mm and up are usually sold as men’s I think). I bought it from pompeii3.

I think silver is what turns people’s fingers green.

Maybe try berricle.com? I have a couple of RHRs in sterling silver and they never turn my finger green. They do need to be shined up occasionally though.

@MrsBlah:  I’ve seen some very nice titanium bands, even with small diamonds in it. Doesn’t look to blingy but still can pass as a decent wedding band and they look great.

@MrsBlah:  I plan on doing this for work/vacation/exercise/etc too.  I’ve found some good ones on amazon for pretty cheap.  I was starting to look at stainless steel bands because they’re inexpensive but I don’t know much about them.

Tungsten!  It can take a beating and still stays super shiny.  I have a 2mm tungsten placeholder band, and Fiance has a 6mm tungsten ring.  Buy online, though; it is way overpriced in the stores ($30 for FI’s ring on amazon, $250 in the stores).
