    I’m confused – can’t you just pick a band to wear with your current ring?

    @Asichka:  why would you be wearing 3-4 rings?

    I wil wear my engagement ring (2mm wide) + wedding band (2.3 mm wide) + 5 year anniversary band (1.2 mm wide), for a total of 3 rings and just over 5mm of width.

    Most people will wear their engagement ring + either a matching band OR their engagement ring + plain precious metal band.

    @Asichka:  the w ring doesn’t need to match the ering unless that’s the look you’re going for. If you love your ering, then you can just find a ring to wear alongside it.

    Above, I’ve posted the lovely Scintillante’s former set, as well as Princess Diana’s set. You can rock a gap in between the two rings or wear totally mismatched rings.

    I have mismatched rings because I originally didn’t want a wedding band (planning on just wearing my e-ring), however, my husband surprised me with this band so now I wear it.

    I too am confused as to why you just can’t get a band to go with your ering.

    This is my engagement ring and wedding band. The band is custom made to go with the curve of my ering. It was under $1000 – which was equal to or less than the other bands I could find. So please reconsider custom.

    @Asichka:  Pardon me if I’m just confused or misapprehending your problem, but are you looking at wedding sets now that you already have an e-ring? This is how it should work:

    (1) Your FH or you purchase a wedding set, which includes ering and wband – 2 rings to wear 

    (2) Your FH purchases an e-ring and then later one of you purchases one single wedding band – 2 rings to wear

    If I’m understanding correctly, your problem is that if you buy a wedding set now, you’ll be wearing too many rings. You’re right, but you shouldn’t be buying a wedding set unless you want to change your e-ring. If you love your e-ring, then simply purchase one singular wedding band, which will likely not match your e-ring.

    @Asichka:  why do you need to get 2-3 bands? Just get one?

    @Asichka:  wedding rings don’t have to be bought as a wedding set. You can buy them seperately.

    There are many options out there but most people wear a wedding band that blends or matches with the engagement ring.  If someone purchases a set the ering is worn separately until the wedding and then the exact matching band is put on during the ceremony and worn afterwards.  Generally, the wedding band is worn closest to the heart after the wedding so the ering would be closest to your fingernail.

    This rule of thumb allows for much creativity in choosing different combinations.  There are many different styles of wedding bands and many different price points to fit every budget.  This creativity is what makes this board so popular with many people having several choices and having a hard time making up their mind. 

    Personally, I would not dream of not wearing my ering.  I wear two bands to compliment it.  My shopping experience was centered around finding a band that highlighted my ering.  So, decide what “theme” you would like and have fun shopping at different stores to make your dream a reality!  Would you post a larger pic of your ering please?  It looks beautiful but we would all like to see it!
