    I still wear mine everyday alongside my weddingband. I don’t have a very large stone though, so it doesn’t get in the way at all.

    I’ve only been married a month, but I plan on always wearing my engagement ring. The only times I take it off is to shower and if I’m doing some heavy duty cleaning & cooking. Otherwise, it stays on. FI put a lot of thought & money into it, plus I love the way it looks with my wedding band 🙂

     

    I could see how some rings could hurt though, I always wondered that about pears and marquis!

    When I picked out my ring I specifically took a lot of things into account to make sure it was something I could wear every day. I’m clumsy and tend to bang rings into stuff a lot, I also wear gloves in a lab almost daily etc. So I settled on a low profile solitare e-ring. The only time I don’t wear it anymore is when I go work out. Then I just wear a band because I feel it does get in the way.

    My mom has a marquee and it used to scratch me all the time as a child! That’s specifically why I told my SO I didn’t want a marqee! 😉

    I wear my e-ring for basically everything but I did get a band that could stand-alone in the future.  For the time being, I plan on wearing both every day! I <3 the way they look together

    I only got my band so it matched my legacy. So I don’t plan on ever wearing just the band – I don’t love it .

    I picked out a perfectly matching set because I plan on ALWAYS wearing both. I couldn’t imagine not wearing my e-ring, and I’m sure my husband wouldn’t appreciate me not wearing it after the money he spent!

    I chose my e ring for its wearability. In other words, its not too big to get annoying and it doesnt have any sharp corners or anything that would annoy me daily.  Is there a different setting you could switch to that would help reduce scratching?

    I think I definitely will. My only request with my engagement ring and any future jewerly was please don’t get me a marquis. I had one from an ex and cut myself and others constantly.

    I had my engagement ring stone reset into a stand-alone wedding ring which is my everyday ring. I also still have my original band, which I like to wear when I’m feeling particularly low-key or simplistic and also when travelling.

    My e-ring is a 3-stone with halos.  I bought a wedding band that compliments it, but it doesn’t “fit” perfectly with the e-ring.  I plan to wear it forever, unless and until DH decides to buy anniversary bands.  If he does, then I’d probably swap the e-ring out for that.  But IDK if he actually plans to (though he’s hinted at it), nor would I push for it.

    I also have daydreams of someday swapping out the e-ring stones, giving them to kids for their e-rings, and replacing them with their birthstones.  But I’d have to find a jeweler willing to mess with tube settings.

    I wear just my wedding band most of the time, a plain gold band. My e-ring doesn’t scratch or get caught on anything, but I just find it easier. I have a baby and I’m constantly washing my hands, changing diapers, etc. I wear my e-ring when we go out, or sometimes I just put in on at night after my daughter goes to bed, just to admire it. I think it makes me appreciate it more when I don’t wear it all the time. I don’t plan on ever changing or replacing it, I love it! But it’s too much for everyday wear, and I don’t wear nice clothes or any other jewelry anyway.

    I picked my e-ring so that it would go with everything and a setting that wouldn’t poke and snag anything. I wear just my band to sleep and shower and clean but other than that I always have my ering on. I would feel silly to drop so much money on a piece of jewelry I didn’t wear all the time. That being said, my mom only wears hers for special occasions and doesn’t even wear a band.
