I don’t have any pictures, but I’ve seen plenty of women do it!  If it’s what you want to do, do it!

My mother in law to be only ever wears a wedding band. It’s a plain gold band and looks great, and really symbolic as its the only jewelry she ever wears. It dosent ever have to come off as it just isnt that delicate.


I havent got my band yet (yellow gold with engraving no stones) only 10 days to go! But I will be wearing it with my engagement ring as I love my engagement ring to much to ever take it off AND we chose one that was hard wearing, not to big and fairly practical!

I’d say if you are not a ring person, or are a practical person a band alone looks really amazing.

@evangeladanae:  Before I moved to N. America, I don’t remember seeing anyone wearing their engagement ring and wedding band stacked up. My father thinks it is so weird that I wear both together occasionally now that I’m married and I had to tell him it’s “expected” over here. I’ve never really been a “ring” person…we were engaged for 3.5 years and I never got used to wearing that rock, though I love it to bits. The wedding ring I chose isn’t a plain band, but it can definitely be worn on it’s own and sometimes I just like wearing it that way.

@evangeladanae:  I haven’t got a photo as we have not ordered the ring yet, but this is what I am planning to do. My mum usually wears just her wedding ring and my eldest sister just wears her wedding band (she didn’t want an engagement ring because it was her second marriage).

I get mixed responses when I say what I want to wear my band on its own. Some people think I’m crazy (though these are usually the same people who think I’m odd for wanting diamonds in my band too – I have no idea!!!).

In my social circle, it goes like this: Younger married women wear both, older married women wear just the band. It’s all about the personal preference. I personally love the symbolism behind wearing just a band. Though I suspect I mainly plan to wear the band on its own because while I LOVE the band, I don’t LOVE it with my engagement ring…

I only wear a wedding ring. It’s a slender vintage gold band with baguette diamonds. I’m not keen on engagement rings on me and they don’t really suit my lifestyle (I’m a drummer) but I love my wedding ring and don’t think it could be improved by an engagement ring. It might be that my DH buys me an equally slender eternity ring on our first anniversary though and I will wear them together.

My mum only wears her wedding band – a plain gold one. When her fingers swelled, she wore it round her neck like Frodo, until my Dad got her a new one as a surprise for Christmas.

It was important to me that I had a wedding band that I could wear alone if I wanted to, because that was what I was used to seeing with my mum.

@evangeladanae:  I didn’t get an engagement ring so all I have is a wedding band.

@evangeladanae:  I will be wearing only my band after we get married (3 more days!)

My e-ring stone is rather large (not diamond, a different gem) and pear shaped on a split shank. it would need a custom band, but I don’t like that idea since I often don’t wear my e-ring. So I bought a WB that I liked, and that’s what I’ll wear, with my e-ring on my RH occassionally.

I wear my ering and wedding band on separate hands most days. I’m really happy I went with a more ornate wedding band for this very reason! Pardon the yellow lighting.

I plan on getting this band to wear on its own, when an e-ring and wedding band set is not practical.
