anyone ever wear a cz ring and pass it off as the real thing??

I'm pregnant and my wedding rings are getting a little tight on my finger.. so I was thinking of buying a cz set to wear until after I have my baby. I'm just afraid it will look too fake. I've never bought one before, can I really pass it off as the real thing?? (My husband and I really don't want to spend a bunch of money on a new ring set just for the next couple of months and I really don't want to go without wearing my wedding rings for that long).

  • What a cz ring? LOL
    I just took my ring off. No need on spending money on something else when you can wear yours in a couple months.

  • A guy I WAS engaged to tried to pass off a CZ ring as the real thing! Sure, if fooled me and everyone I showed it to--but not my jeweler when I took it in for an insurance appraisal!!! Let's just say, I didn't stay engaged for long afterward--not just because of the ring, but because he lied repeatedly--even saying the jeweler was wrong--and tried to be something he was not--quite the pontificater!

    My now husband bought me a GORGEOUS GENUINE set--this time I was there when he bought it! LOL

    However, I don't see a problem with wearing your rings around your neck for a few months--it's obvious why!!! :)

  • mine is a cz too. he couldn't afford much way back then and ya know i thought it was beautiful anyway! looks real and no one knows at all... just me and my hubby. he said he'd replace it with a real one and i said, you will not! it wouldn't be my wedding ring! lol CZ is ok in my book!

  • I do. I won't own real diamonds because of the way they are obtained.

  • I haven't, but as long as you get one where the stones aren't too big, it shouldn't be that noticeable.

  • i have a beautiful cz ring set, but honestly i wouldnt care to try and pass it off as real, everyone who askes me about it gets the truth, my husband doesnt make alot of money and we cant afford gold or real diamonds so i have a silver cz that i wouldnt trade for the world, when i got so big that they didnt fit i put them around my neck so i could still proudly wear the rings that my hubby gave me.
