@NikkiKillpretty:  I have two wedding bands to switch up my look. Does that count? 🙂

Definitely not. One set was a big enough waste of money, I can’t imagine justifying the expense of two. Even if I was terribly rich (which I’m not), I would never do this. There are so many things I would rather have and so many places to go!

@wrkbrk:  I like the idea of having two different bands! Especially with the colored band, I could see how you would want something more simple when it might clash with what you are wearing. 

 

Personally, I probably would just stick with my one set, just because I would not want to spend the money.

@ttigger5:  Thank you! Needless to say, the ruby/diamond/platinum band was expensive but the other one really was not! 14k rose gold for days when I dont want bling 🙂 🙂

@NikkiKillpretty:  I do, although I call it my rhr, sometimes I wear it on the left with a very thin rose gold diamond band, it’s a .42 diamond in platinum Tiffany & Co, I don’t have the band on in this pic:

 

 Here is my original ering/wedding ring 1.20 center diamond in gold w/ diamonds and 1/2 ct diamond yellow gold wedding ring:

Sorry for the huge pics, don’t know how to resize!

On our 1st year anniversary (or christmas… depending on if I find a good sale discount) I’m planning on having a yellow gold wedding band,… so that I can use if my other accesories are yellow gold… I currently have a white gold engagement and wedding band set… 🙂

But I just want the yellow band… no yellow gold engagement ring again…

I will have many sets as time goes on I’m sure, but I turn ANY ring, gemstone/right-hand-ring/serously anything into a bridal set by paring it with a plain band (or not) on my left hand, so every ring I own is part of a “bridal set” :-)! My sapphire RHR is now a “bridal set” because I can wear it with a plain band on my left hand, BOOM, new set! 🙂

@NikkiKillpretty:  I like having more than one set, some days I just “feel” like a different look. I lost my ering a long time ago, and have had a bunch of replacements over the years. I have recently “cleaned house” and am down to two “erings” and a bunch of dirrenent bands.  I sometimes wear a set on each hand, when I can’t decide what one to wear..

I have two very inexpesive bands. They are identical but one is white gold and one is rose gold. I also like that I can wear them stacked. The WG ring will be my “official” band used during the ceremony but I will switch them out and also wear them together.

For me personally, I think its a waste of money. I think some people get caught up in the glamour and forget about the true meaning behind the rings. I can see having more than one wedding band (not as expensive), but e-rings? no.

I got engaged while still in grad school, and I chose my ring based on where we currently are in our lives. In a few years, I will be getting a new set. My 1 carat RB in its Tacori setting looks great for now, but it’s not going to be blingy enough for me when I’m more established. My family has a few large heirloom stones (2.5-3 carats) and I’m hoping to maybe have one recut and set in a custom setting. I specifically chose a classic simple design for my original e-ring knowing it would be something I’d have forever. When I upgrade, I won’t be giving up my original ring, and I’m really looking forward to being able to choose which set to wear!

My FH recently said I could order a secondary e-ring from Eidel, but the shop was closed! I’ve since thought about it and it seems like a waste of money.
