Maybe I’m just out of the latest trends. But I’ve noticed that a lot of Bees talk about changing up their rings, or adding more bands, or wearing only the wedding band or only the e-ring.
Is this something you do just to change the look?
I understand getting an anniversary band later on after being married a few years. I also understand upgrading when you can affored to get the ring you couldn’t afford when your original rings were purchased. What I don’t understand wanting to make your rings look different from the day you get married.
For myself, I cannot imagine changing my rings in any way. They’ve become a part of me. I don’t even think of them as jewelry, because I’m always switching out my jewelry to go with my outfit. But my wedding rings aren’t for fashion, so I don’t worry about whether they go with anything. I might get an anniversary band sometime, but I’ll probably wear it on my right hand.
I’m not judging anyone who switches out their rings or adds to them. I’m just curious about why you do it.

i wouldn’t want to change my bands, i would just like a CZ set (stunt double) for when I don’t want to worry about my real ones getting lost. I’m like you. The bands hold sentimentality and meaning in the originals.

I like to stack bands sometimes with my ring because I think it’s fun. I wont lie, I do get bored sometimes and want to switch it up, but I feel like it doesn’t matter what ring I’m wearing on that finger, as long as I’m wearing a ring. I love my center stone, and I like how different bands look with it.

I’m not planning on changing up my set either but I don’t wear a lot of jewelry to begin with. I do plan to get a band that matches my wedding ring (which matches my ering) as a push gift (since that’ll probably happen before a 5 year anniversary – here’s hoping!) and wear that on the other side of the ering because I like the look of three rings stacked together. It will be somehow designated as a “different” ring though (probably with a small chip diamond on the inside of the band). Plus, to have it as a push gift kind of goes together in that we have the engagement ring, the wedding ring and a ring to celebrate the beginning of our family.

I don’t have the wedding band my DH put on my finger at our wedding (lots of problems with it so I had to return it) so I change what I wear quite frequently. I have a plain white gold 2mm band and a diamond half eternity band that I got for our 10th anniversary. I also have my original e-ring (well, the diamond was just reset) and it doesn’t fit with either of my bands so sometimes I just wear that by itself. I prefer to wear just one ring anyway so it works for me. Which ring I wear depends on what I am doing that day. I probably wear the plain band the majority of the time.

My ering’s a plain shank halo. I do plan on getting a plain band, and am debating whether or not I eventually want a sparkly band. In the meantime I have a cz silver band I might wear sometimes.
My reasons for this are twofold. One, my ering is set high, and I’d like to have something sparkly to wear on days I’m afraid of knocking my ring around. The other is because it might be nice to have an extra something sparkly for days I’m feeling fancy.

I have a solitaire e-ring with a plain shank and 2 prong set semi eternity bands and I want to change up the look because I get bored easy. I did try recently to get some stacker bands but they didnt look right and sent them back to the designer. I am still thinkin about getting some emerald and diamond bands to switch up with my bands for fun…hope that answered what you were lookin for
