I’ve got rings on the brain today! How long on average do most women wear their engagement rings?
I guess I’m asking because I’ve been looking at wedding bands, and I don’t want to get a matching set, but if I should be wearing my e-ring for quite sometime, I don’t want to get something that’s so incompatible that I can’t wear both (or both won’t actually fit on my finger). Thoughts?

I love my ring. I’m never not wearing it.

I plan to wear both my rings for the remainder of my days 🙂

I don’t think I’ll ever stop wearing mine!

Considering I’m soldering mine together…forever! I don’t understand dropping $$ on something that women won’t wear daily. Seems silly.

MOst people wear their engagements rings with their wedding band. If you have a band that doesn’t match your e-ring then why not wear the e-ring as a right hand ring?
I plan to wear my e-ring for as long as I can slide it on my finger!

Most people I know wear them forever…but that doesn’t mean you have to! You could always switch it to your right hand, too, if it doesn’t work well with your wedding band. I plan to wear my (not really matching) set together until we have kids, then I’ll probably wear the band alone except on special occasions. I’m always bashing my e-ring into things and wouldn’t want to risk that with a baby…
Is your engagement ring very unusual looking? Even if it is, I’m sure you can find a non-matching band that will still look great with it, if you want to wear the two together!

I’m moving my engagement ring to my right hand.

i’ll be wearing my ring until my child gets married and it’s time to pass it on. my fi’s mom was wearing it right before she gave it to him to give to me. and so forth until his great grandma. my ring means everything to me, like i said, the only thing reason i’m letting it leave this finger will be for a future child so they can have what i have.

I will be wearing my e-ring with my wedding band forever. I don’t plan on taking them off or giving them to my children or anything like that.

My mom wore her engagement ring with her wedding band most of the time (as I remember) and sometimes just wore her wedding band without the engagement ring. But for my parents 20th anniversary they got new matching bands and she doesn’t really wear the engagement ring anymore.
One of my criteria for my engagement ring setting was that a band had to be able to sit flush against it. I didn’t get a set, but I just found a wedding band that worked with my engagement ring. I plan on wearing them both forever.

Right now I plan to wear mine forever. My mom wore hers until her 20th anniversary when she got an engagement band, and wore that until her 30th when she got a new 3 stone ring. But… she was 17 when she got married and they got the ring she could afford which she never really loved (for any reason other than it was her e-ring). I love my e-ring as is so I see no reason to not wear it forever 🙂

To be honest – after the wedding, I’ll prob only wear the matching band most of the time & wear the set when I feel like it or for weddings, etc. I’d like to think I’ll wear my e-ring all the time but I doubt that’ll happen. My BFF has a gorgeous set complete with alternating sapphire & diamond eternity band & she mostly wears a simple silver band.
Plus – as my mother says – “You can’t wear diamonds & change dirty diapers” LOL

I don’t think that this is true for every generation (I’m sure people haven’t always done this), but I think these days it’s pretty common to wear both rings together… always. I plan to wear mine pretty much every day for the rest of my life, although I will certainly take the e-ring off more often once I have another band there (it’s too delicate!). I do know at least one person, though, who wears her e-ring on her right hand now that she’s married, but she still wears it everyday.

I also plan to wear mine all the time as well.
