I guess I am not as traditional as some, because I want just one ring for my wedding. My finger is a 4.5 and I think an engagement ring and wedding band is just way too much for me. Does anybody else feel the same way??

I have 2 friends that only did one ring. They both ended up with very detailed filagree micro-pave bands that wouldn’t look good with companion rings.
I think it is all about what makes you happy. We are fortunate to live in an age when convention doesn’t reign supreme! Do you already have your engagement ring?

I have a two friends who wear only one ring.
One friend wears just her weddingband and axed the e-ring.
The other friend hose an e-ring that didn’t really match with an accompaniment ring. And her and her hubby decided to get matching wedding bands. So she chose to wear her e-ring on her right hand, while she wears her wedding ring on her left hand.

I got a wedding band to wear on my right hand.

I did not want an engagement ring, but we are doing wedding bands. I will probably have stones in the band, though haven’t decided yet.

When I first started looking at rings they were very detailed and I was worried that they would look horrible with a wedding band next to them. The jeweler said that it was pretty common these days to just wear one ring or to wear your engagement ring on your right hand after you are married and your wedding band on your left hand.
In the end i found a less intricate engagement ring that I loved so I will be able to pull off the double (or even tripple ) wedding band look.

I’m planning on getting a wedding band that I will not wear with my e-ring. I love my e-ring, but I feel like I worry about it too much to wear it every day!

I’m doing two rings, and my mom started out that way too. However, she had her engagement ring and wedding band molded together to make one ring and it looks awesome. The one ring still says "Married!"

I only have one ring, and it’s by choice — we chose to go non-diamond, and my ring is channel-set sapphires, so it looks very much like a wedding band. I bought his "mangagement" ring and kept it with me at all times until he proposed, so I could give it to him. Since we were both wearing rings for our engagement, we decided to keep it simple and just exchange the same rings publicly at the wedding. They are very simple, but beautiful, and very "us" — and I have small fingers, so I love the look of the single band, and think it’s really elegant!

I have only one ring for the same reason, sxmstar! I have a 4.5-size ring finger and I chose a pretty elaborate engagement ring. Nothing would have fit flush and it would have looked overdone. The idea of a right-hand ring sounded nice, but I have a lot of other pretty rings that I like to wear on that hand.

The one ring style is actually the european style. This is what I am doing. My engagement ring has that antique look to it and anothe rband won’t fit up next to it so I don’t have a choice. What you could do is just wear the enagagement ring and maybe for you year he can get you a wedding band if you choose so.

My engagement ring is also very intricate and detailed on the sides, so I can’t imagine having a band ip next to it. My mother is insisting that I find a way to make it work or I’ll just "look engaged" for the rest of my life. I think wearing just one ring is fine. I plan to talk to a jeweler about the possibility of designing a matching band, but I can’t see that working out.

A friend of mine axed her engagement ring ( she had emerald solitaire which she picked mainly because she didn’t want her now husband spend money on diamond knowing she won’t wear it). She only wears gold wedding band, which is pretty wide, I would say almost 1/2 inch. It doesn’t look odd at all.

My ring is also a european style ring. It actually looks like a 3 piece ring with a band of diamonds on both sides of my princess cut diamond. When my FH picked out the ring, he was worried I wouldn’t like just having one ring. I love it, this way I won’t have to solder them together when I get married!!

My mom only ever wore her wedding band. In fact, I didn’t know that most women continue to wear both rings until I was almost engaged myself!
