I decided to just ditch a wedding band altogether, I know it might sound crazy lol so I was wondering if anyone else out there is doing the same thing. I just ordered a new engagement ring, my fiance and I have been engaged for a while now and I am so indecisive that I decided I wanted a different engagement ring than the one I started out with. Long story short we were looking around at all of these engagement rings and every one I liked was kind of big and I didnt want to add a band to it making it bigger. I remember expressing this at one store and the lady behind the counter told me hey, you can do whatever you want, a lot of women have been just going with an engagement ring and then just not adding a band to it. So is it true?? are there other girls out there who are doing the same thing? I decided to go with a spit shank double halo engagement ring and I just want to leave it at that, no band required. Thanks for the input! (:

I haven’t heard of people doing this, but what I have heard of people doing is wearing them on different hands. Could be because they, like you, don’t want to add a band and make it look bigger. Or for a million other reasons. But really, just do what you want!

I thought about going without one because I couldn’t find anything I liked with my ring. I ended up just getting a solid band to match…and I love it!

@jumpthegun: yeah, thats a really good idea and its pretty funny that I didn’t think of that! I guess if I find one I like I could just wear it on the other hand… thanks for the suggestion! (:

Im not having a wedding band. my ring has diamonds all along the side, so it would just hide that. and why do i need another ring? i dont need it!! who cares is its the “normal” thing to do. 🙂 do whatever you want!

I haven’t seen women go without a wedding band so much. I’ve known plenty of men who have a ring and never wear it. My step-grandpa never wore his and gave his ring to my mom when they got married. I think it’s a personal choice that you should feel happy about. If you don’t want a wedding band and your FI is ok with that then I say go for it. If you’re not sure then you could always get an inexpensive, but nice one for the ceremony and only wear it on special occasions.

I don’t plan on having a wedding band either :]
My e-ring will be a 3ct. moissanite in a halo, with a 2mm shank. I really like the look of a very thin shank, & because of that I tend to not really appreciate the look of “sets” (although on occasion someone will put something together that can be utterly drool worthy!)
I figure if as I get older I don’t want people to question whether or not I am simply engaged or married, I might couple my e-ring with a 1mm plain platinum band & call it a day.. But as of now, I don’t see the need for a wedding band.

I’m not adding a band to mine as well. I figure there is always time to do that, and I love my E-Ring just the way it is!

I am debating whether to do this too. I love, love, LOVE halos but from what I understand it is hard to find wedding bands that fit with them.

I actually originally looked at a split shank for that very reason! Ended up with just a regular halo, and decided to get a simple wedding band.
I have a few friends who opted not to have a separate band. Just too much fuss/bling for them I think. 🙂
