I have a sapphire and diamond band that I absolutely adore, but lately I am really digging just wearing my solitaire by itself. It just looks simple and beautiful. A lot of times I wear my sapphire band on my other hand. Sometimes I do wear them together. I am thinking of buying a thin plain band to wear along with my ering to look more “married”. Do any of you married bees ever opt to just wear your ering?

I wear one ring most of the time.
I have a 3 stone ring that I’m going to get reset, but that’s the one I wear most of the time. I got a half eternity anniversary band but it’s uncomfortable with the 3 stone ring (the 3 stone ring has a knife edge) so I usually only wear the two together if we’re going out somewhere.
I also have a plain gold band that I wear to the gym or if I’m doing something and don’t want to take a chance and damage one of my diamond rings.
My DH’s cousin’s wife (say that three times fast!) has a solitaire and that’s all she wears. She never wanted another band and had the solitaire blessed for their wedding ceremony and had it put back on her finger.
The setting I chose for my reset also is a stand alone ring. This isn’t the exact ring but the one I picked is pretty close (it’s not on the store’s web site yet). I could wear it with my diamond band if I want to but I think I will just wear it alone. For me, it’s just more comfortable to wear one ring.
Edited to add that if I wear just the 3 stone ring, I usually wear my wedding band on my right hand, but some days the only thing I wear is something on my left.

Right now I’m being forced to “opt” not to wear a wedding band. 🙂 We haven’t found bands yet. But even so, I won’t be wearing a band with my ering. It’s a gorgeous ring and deserves it’s own stage. And my wedding band deserves it’s own stage as well, menaing I’ll be wearing it on my right hand when we finally find something. But I can see myself not even doing that some days and just wearing the ering.

i’m not married yet, but i’m not having a separate wedding band- just one ring for both engagement and wedding. i like the look of the ring by itself.

I am married and only wear one ring which is my diamond wedding band. I didnt want an e-ring because from the very beginning I knew I would only wear the wedding band and to me it looks more modern to just have the one band symbolizing marriage.

I normally only wear my e-ring. I had it reset last summer and it doesn’t really go with my wedding band anymore. I will eventually buy a matching band, but the new setting was so expensive that we’re going to hold off on jewelry purchases for a while!
It has been bothering my Darling Husband though, he doesn’t like people thinking I’m just engaged. So sometimes I’ll wear the band with it even though it doesn’t match just to make him happy 🙂

I love your band! I think its a very “married look.” But I also think if you want a plain band that they are so beautiful & one with your ring would be lovely!

OOO! Me! I only wear my ering! I think it looks better than wearing both and I like the simplicity of it. I also think of wedding band as unnecessary. I mean, why do I need two rings? My Grams wore one ring. In some ways it seems like an excuse to get you to buy more.

I like the look of my e-ring by itself… but I also wanted to look married lol. I picked a plain, 2mm band and I don’t think it takes away from my e-ring at all!
I personally love your set!

Beautiful solitaire and beautiful band! I think it’s a great idea to get a plain band also, it would compliment the ering in a different way. I am all for having several bands to your set that you can switch between, depending on mood.
But really you should wear it as you like. And traditions on how to wear engagement and erings are so diffent depending on where you live! Now I live in Denmark where it is common to wear your engagement ring on your left ring finger and your wedding ring on your right ring finger.

I think your set is BEAUTIFUL, but if you want to wear the e-ring alone, you definitely could. People in my FI’s family only have e-rings, not an additional wedding band, so he was actually surprised by the whole concept. So it’s not like everyone’s going to just think you’re engaged. I was worried about a band not looking right with the e-ring, so I picked a wedding set, so they basically look like one larger ring once the band is on.

@Mrs.danish: I always thought I would just get an eternity band later and “dress up” or “dress down” my e-ring depending on my mood… but now that I am married I can’t imagine wearing a different band! This is the ring my husband put on my finger after we said our vows! It has so much significance to me now lol!
That said, I am all for letting people wear their jewelry however they want! Who cares about the “rules”?

Now that I think about it, most of the females in my family only wear one ring. Several of them have wider setting where the e-ring diamond was set into it. My Mother-In-Law and SIL both only wear one ring also…again, a wider set with the e-ring diamond in it.
I’ve only been asked a handful of times if I’m actually married vs just being engaged when I only wear the 3 stone ring.

I used to wear my e-ring and wedding band together all of the time, but I lately I’ve just been wearing my e-ring, since it’s substantial (thick) and pretty much holds it’s own. People think it’s my wedding band when I’m wearing it by itself. I do it to mimimize the 2 rings scratching eachother. Plus lately I’ve just been liking the look of my e-ring by itself.

I only wear my ering most of the time. I love the band too, but firmly believe that the more you have going on on your finger the less you notice the ering and I always want the ering to be the main attraction. I definitely get more compliments on my ring when I wear it by its self.
