    jofits:  I will have 2 rings, but I think that your ring is substantial enough to stand on its own on your left hand.

    i think if you found the right ring it would complement your ER perfectly!! i would go for a thinner ring – or maybe 2, one under and one ontop!! there are some gorgeous stacking rings on Etsy for very reasonable prices!x

    I think the band on your ring makes it able to stand on its own. I only wear one ring, my engagement ring became my wedding band. My ring also has a thicker band. It works for me.

    jofits:  I was literally planning to post this exact same question earlier. I’ve never worn jewlery at all, so getting used to having one ring has been a lot, I simply don’t want to have to wear two rings. It wasn’t until the second or third time someone mentioned that they thought I was already wearing a wedding ring, that I realized that maybe I could just make my e-ring a wedding ring, too!

    Do what you want. Both my ering and wedding band are substantial stand-alone rings and I’ll definitely wear only one per hand!

    jofits:  I think I mentioned this in another thread, but I LOVE your ERing. The design is so beautiful, as is the stone. It is a fantastic, gorgeous ring.

    If you like it by itself, it could definitely stand alone as both ERing and wedding band. I think a lot of people do this. I think a plain wedding band, possibly of the same metal, would look really nice with it, as it would complement the band of your ring while still letting the stone stand out. Have you tried on bands with it? You might want to do that before deciding to forgo a band altogether.

    When I got my anniversary ring, I thought about wearing just the one ring because it also has a thicker band/setting. In the end, I felt I was too used to wearing a wedding band, and I wanted that “band” look on my hand still. My anniversary ring is much like an ERing in style, so I mentally felt like I was stepping backward. I ended up pairing a slim diamond half eternity band with it, and I liked the look. Over time, I got used to seeing it with a band, and even started stacking at times. It’s possible you just need to get used to the look of a band with your ring. It can be visually jarring at first.

    No matter what you decide to do, it will end up being the right decision for you and your lifestyle. The important thing is to do what makes you happy and most comfortable. Your ring will look perfect — and perfectly lovely — either way.

    jofits:  Maybe a plain band of similar thickness but slim and complimenting so your finger won’t suffocate 😉 If you even want another ring, if not then hey it looks fine alone.

    I would just keep the one ring! If you love it and you’re happy with it, you don’t need a band. I’ve read about a lot of bees that just wear either their ering or wedding band once they’re married, so it’s not really that different. 🙂

    I voted for the 2 rings because the WB can be narrow and if you need to just wear your WB for an activity (I wear my WB only when cooking icky stuff, gardening etc.). I really liked the idea of always having my WB on.

    Having said that, your ring is substantial (and gorgeous – love the east/west design). You could definitely get away with one.

    jofits:  I do wear both a ering and band only because the bands themselves aren’t thick.  I think they total 5mm together?  I know two women who don’t wear wedding bands becuase they didn’t want to.  One person asked her husband to marry her so her ering was wedding band.  The other one didn’t want to take away from her ering and liked having the thin band.
