Hummm. I wear all three of my rings (he he, yep, I got two bands). Right now I have both bands on my left hand and my engagement ring on my right, so I get the best of both worlds.

And yes, I know I am a spoiled Princess.

Not at all, I love seeing both my rings together.   Now I think it would look weird if I only had my e-ring on ๐Ÿ™‚

I lost my wedding ring so I’m stuck only wearing my engagement ring. I don’t like it at all. The set is much better, and sometimes people ask me if I’m engaged, and I hate having to tell people that I lost my wedding ring!

It’s pretty lame seeing my ering alone to be honest, especially after being married!

Nope. I think it looks so much better with its partner! I wore it alone for a little bit (okay, an hour) and it was dreadful!

If you like just the e-ring, though, go for it … I think my mom did that sometimes.

I have two bands, too, and while I love the way they all look together, sometimes when I see a pic of me just wearing the engagement ring alone, I think it looks so pretty like that! I think I’ll always wear them all together, but I totally know what you mean!

I never thought of that, powderpuff! I matched my wedding band to my engagement ring and right now, I just can’t wait to wear the wedding band! If I want to see my engagement ring alone, I’ll have to get it sized to wear on my right hand… but then it would be too big to wear together with the wedding band on the left hand… oy.

I feel like my hand looks empty without my band! Funny how quickly these things become a part of us :p First it was weird to have no e-ring on my finger (the 10 days mine was lost, I was just SO SO sad and felt like I lost a part of myself) and now, if it’s just the e-ring, it still feels weird lol I LOVE them both together ๐Ÿ™‚

Right now, I’ve been primarily wearing both the e-ring and the bad. I find though that every time I was my hands I take both off because I feel like I finger is still wet. I take off both and dry them. Yes, I know I am a weirdo. ๐Ÿ™‚

Msswan, I do the same thing.  I share and office and my office mate thinks I am nuts because everytime I come back from the bathroom I take off all my rings and dry them and my finger (our bathroom sink area is too small for me to take them off when i wash) I just can’t stand that feeling if I don’t  dot it!

I may be the only one with this response but..here goes!

I don’t like having two rings.  Even when I married my ex, it was a somewhat medium width band in plat and had solitaire in the middle and baguettes all the way around it.

I’m doing the same this time too.  I work in a field where i hate the feeling of more than one ring rolling around under a medical glove.  They allow us to have one ring btw.  So I’ll have solitaire and have it be a medium width band.

Here’s kinda what my old ring looked like:

Powderpuff, I feel the same way! My engagement ring is a gorgeous round solitaire in a high, four prong setting. It is soooo classic and beautiful. I got two wedding bands- round diamonds in a shared-prong eternity band setting. I love the whole set together, but sometimes I really, really miss that classic simple feel of my engagement ring. 

I saw a picture of me wearing JUST my engagement ring and it looked so pretty. I even put just my engagement band on the other day and told my hubby that it brought back such fun memories of being engaged!!!

Of course, I love flashing around my wedded fingers, but I know what you mean! ๐Ÿ™‚

I actually like my rings together, but there’s something about just seeing my engagement ring by itself that makes me happy.  I think maybe seeing it by itself brings back all the warm/fuzzy feelings about being newly engaged.
