    I have one ring.  An ering- that is a solitaire.  I had a wedding band but I didn’t really like it.  My ering has a unique shape and diamonds on the actual SIDE (not “to the side” of the diamond- on the side) so I kind of am apprehensive about wearing the sides down by wearing another ring.  I like having one- it is a great ring and it suits me- my jewelry taste is quality over quantity.

    FI was in a bit of a shock when he found out that he had to get 2 rings (he seriously didn’t know this). He said he didn’t want to buy a 2nd ring. I am thinking about just buying a cheap band from a pawn shop for him to put on for wedding ceremony purposes only but wearing my e-ring as my wedding ring.

    I love eternity bands too, and also have very small hands. (To give you some idea, I’m only 5’2″, and my ring size is a 4.5.)

    I’m actually going to wear two rings- a 3/4 eternity band and a solitaire.

    I don’t think it would overwhelm your fingers at all if you made sure to go with thin, dainty bands- neither my solitaire or eternity band is going to be wider than about 2mm.

    I only have one ring. My ring is kind of a weird shape, and I didn’t want to deal with a custom band. Plus, I’m kind of attached to how it looks on it’s own. I figure, if I ever change my mind I can always get an anniversary band or something 🙂

    I have two rings that sort of go, but the wedding band isn’t custom or anything. That way I can choose to wear either or both. 

    Maybe get two 3/4 eternity bands, one as an engagement ring and one as a wedding band, then stack them both? Two thin ones wouldn’t overwhelm your hand, and still symbolize both steps.  Might make your boyfriend feel better too.  Maybe get one with alternating diamonds and your birthstone, one with alternating diamonds with his, then if you have kids you can add rings for each kid with their birthstones? (this is of course assuming you aren’t having like 10 kids)

    I have a friend who has one ring, and she wishes she had two. She has an eternity wedding band and no ering.

    If I were you, I’d take my budget to eBay and find the best set you can for the money you have, or buy a wedding band now, and get an “ering” on an anniversary in the future.

    One ring that will be flipped “band side in” once we are married. I didn’t want a wide shank for comfort reasons. I didn’t want to worry about the perfect fit against my engagement ring and I didn’t want to do any soldering. So this was a custom piece. 🙂

    I love the look of one ring.  I think it’s elegant.  I don’t see most people wearing two rings anymore after they’ve been married for a while.  Go for it!

    I only wanted one ring (never been much of a ring wearer and no fan of diamonds). DH and I designed a set of really cool, unique custom wedding rings for ourselves after we got engaged. When they were ready, I started wearing mine immediately while he waited until the weddng. I love our rings and the creativity we put into them, and I’m delighted to have it be the only ring I wear.

    I think eternity bands are beautiful.  It would be gorgeous on its own.    If later on you decide you want an “engagement ring”,  hubby can buy you one for an anniversary gift.    We started out with plain w/gold bands and added to them over the years.

    I was thinking about doing this too! I think it’s a great idea!

    My husband and I have matching gold bands, and I love them. I don’t mean to offend anybody by saying this, but I think that blingy rings are too flashy. I love the simplicity of a gold band, and I love how we spent exactly the same amount on our rings. It feels like we have started our marriage as equals.

    I did get burgled recently, so have become paranoid about safety- maybe I’m just afraid that somebody would cut my finger off to get my ring!

    No right or wrong with having one, two or no rings. I usually wear my eternity ring alone, because I hate how my fingers feel cramped from stacked rings.

    I personally am very happy with just my one ring.  I tried a small channel set band with it but prefer just the single ring.  I have not had anyone question it and I think it looks like a wedding ring.
