i am terrible at this kind of thing but what do you think about maybe 2 really thin paved bands one on each side of the ering? i think it would look pretty.

I have a wedding band, but it’s funny you mention this because when I upgrade my setting for the Ering I will not wear a wedding band with it for the same reason. The new setting is a pave halo I guess ‘cathedral’ and unless I had a custom made pave band, nothign will go wtih it. But I’m not interested even in having a custom band because this setting will be enough on its own. I plan on wearing my wedding band whenever I’m not wearing the e-ring, like when I’m running errands, working out, bumming at home, etc. I don’t think there’s anythign wrong with it, I mean peopl emight be confused when they meet me adn think I’m engaged instead of married, but I don’t think that’s a big enough reason to wear an additional band.

My best friend won’t be wearing a wedding band.  Her engagement ring sounds similar, and no matter what type of band she gets, diamonds are going to be covered up.

She works with animals, so she is getting a simple, plain band to wear for when she can’t wear her engagement ring, but she won’t be wearing them together.

I’ve seen women start doing this more and more. And it’s usually because of the thickness of the e-rings. I think your ring is quite enough. It doesn’t need a wedding band.

Personally, I couldn’t not have a wedding band.  I cherish its symbolism (that is totally different from the symbolism of an e-ring) too much to be missing that for the rest of my life.  And I wouldn’t feel like I could decide to get one later as it wouldn’t have been there for the promises of the wedding day.

If I were you, I’d get a wedding band (in whatever style you like) for your left ring finger and, post-wedding, move the e-ring to your right hand.

I’ve seen a lot of women get a wedding band for their ring finger, and wear their engagement ring on their right hand so they can have both.

I dont have a wedding band. Basicalyly the ring is to wide and already a little to bling for me, a plain white gold band wont match and anything else I feel would look really tacky (just WAY to much bling a ling)

I’m the opposite of u and will wear wedding band only. because i like the look of only one ring and thought the wedding band was the one I couldnt do without

Edited to add- Ultimately you should do what works for you. Not everyone will embrace or understand any non-traditional ways of wearing a ring but it shouldnt matter what others think

I think your ring is gorgeous on it’s own.  If you’re worried about the symbolism of the wedding ring like a PP said, why don’t you have your engagement ring recieve the blessing during the ceremony?  Just an idea… don’t be mad if you don’t like it!

I just got an “enhancer” that goes over the engagement band and basically adds side-stones to my solitaire. It looks like 1 ring, but I’m happy with it b/c I’m not really a double ring girl – I would fidget with them too much. I say, screw tradition and do whatever makes you happy!
