    I say definitely go fake...I have friends that did the exact same thing and they got their "real" bands for their 1st wedding anniversary. Anything that reduces stress (money and travel) is a good idea!!

      If I had it to do all over again - I would buy a really nice CZ and put it in a nice setting. But I'm not into diamonds. They didn't really have nice CZs when I was married almost 11 years ago. I am just not into diamonds. If you are not either - definitely go with CZ - you can always upgrade later if you want.

        Another low-cost option would be a ring that isn't a diamond. When I was at Kays a couple weeks ago, they had a ring that I would have *loved* to have as my E-ring---- it was a sea magic white pearl surrounded by diamonds in a WG band. Absolutely stunning! It was on sale for 50% off and had I seen that ring before we bought my E-ring, it would have saved us about $3K to get it instead.

        If you already have your E-ring, you could always use that as your wedding band also. There's no rule saying you have to have 2 separate rings....

            Yeah, I really don't know/care about diamonds. My engagement ring is actually blue topaz with tiny diamonds. It is really contempory and that color blue is my favorite color. I was going to switch it to my right hand since my wedding band wont match (doesn't matter either). I figure why spend so much on something I don't know much about or appreciate yet. I like the idea of getting my ring for an anniversary!

              I think getting the fake ring now is a great idea. And then you will have something extra special to look forward to on your Anniversary! Yeah!!!

                I got engaged last may and until recently I never wore my e-ring. I had two scares already where I "lost" it. Now I have gotten used to it and wear it all the time. When I go out and I know I'm going to drink and may end up tipsie, (hey I am marrying an Irish guy stop judging! LOL.) I wear a fake one. My friend who is a jeweler is always telling me how really good cubics look so much better than diamonds, they don't ever become dull and they always shine like crazy. I love fake ones I think they are so fun! And if you lose it you don't have to feel devestated. I am not bringing my ring to Mexico, I would have 50,000 anxiety attacks and would not enjoy my time there b/c I would panick that I would lose it or that it would get stolen. I say get the fake and this way you get something exciting to celebrate when you are able to afford it.

                  I love Blue Topaz's! They are so pretty!!

                  I know I'm a little late on this thread but I say go for the fake. People can't tell the difference and the only difference is the price tag. if you can live with a fake... DO IT!!! I told Jared long time ago just to get me a CZ... but he was really against the idea. I tried to explain t him tht i didn't care - but I guess he cared. Isn't that weird? I wanted the fake and he didn't! LOL So he ended up getting me a real diamond very simple and I love it. Im always staring at it and making it sparkle. I really dont see the diff or what the big deal is whether its fake or not.

                    i can't add anything that the other girls haven't already said - go for the fake, it's what's between you two that count. maybe someday it can be a special present you decide to get!
