I think you made the right choice! Your ring looks like a set in its own right, so no need to take away from it. I ended up with a wedding band after much protest from Darling Husband, but was originally going to wear my ring alone because its got so many details I didn’t want to cover up.

Without the band:

I very seriously considered not getting one.  My ring is very blingy already, and it’s a hard shape to match.  I had finally picked the kind of band I wanted, but then my jeweler wasn’t contacting me.  I decided that if I didn’t hear from him by yesterday, I would just skip getting a wedding band because my ring doesn’t need one.  He did end up getting in touch with me, and I’m now pretty confident that I’ll have one.  It wouldn’t have been awful if I didn’t, though.

i may become a one-ring bride.  Fiance has an engagement ring as well, and he likes it so much he’s not sure he’ll want to take it off, but he’s also not sure about wearing two rings, and whatever we do, we want to “match”.  lol.  anyway, if we go that route, since our erings are not engraved yet, we figured we’d take them somewhere just before the wedding and have them engraved, then not wear them until the wedding day, and put them back on for the ring vow part.

I didn’t want an engagement ring, because I already own a number of rings I love, and I don’t like wearing two rings on one hand.  I got a different piece of jewelry for the engagement, and I’m just having a wedding ring.

I have 1 ring and I love it without a band. I told my Fiance I wanted 1 ring when we was talking about finding a ring. IN the end, I asked him as long as the ring has details then it can pass without a band and we all can save the extra money, lol.

I’m thinking of just having one ring.  I’ve tried bands and none have looked quite right.  However, I can’t get wanting two rings out of my mind!  But, because of finances (we’re both in grad school and spending more money seems wasteful), I don’t think we’ll get me another ring.  But I think I’m okay with it.  I can always get one later!

I think it looks great on its own. Although it already has the wedding band anyway right? So it is kind of already a wedding set.

Right! I agree with you! It already is a bridal set, he just went ahead and soldered the wedding band to the ering! Laughing

@Grizz: Your ring kinda looks like mine!  I have a lot of scrollwork and detail too, so I’m having a hart time figuring if I should bother with wedding band – Fiance doesn’t really care either way.  Here’s mine:

We are currently having this discussion. My ring is heart shaped and I don’t like gaps. It’s also been difficult finding a coordinating band. I love my ring for symbolic and sentimental reasons, so I don’t want to make it a right hand.

One of my friends has a beautiful platinum and diamond scroll band that’s (I think) 5mm wide, so it covers the area where an engagement ring and wedding band would go. She received it as her engagement ring, and then it sort of unofficially became her wedding band after she got married. I think it’s so classy looking and elegant.

Me!  I didn’t want an engagement ring for a lot of reasons, so Fiance proposed without one.  I wear rings I already had for now, just like I always did.  When we get married, I’ll have a wedding ring and I’ll just wear that.  Maybe I’ll add some of my other rings to it at times, since they’re diamonds, but it’ll mostly be on it’s own. 

OP, your ring does look like a set (I know it is, but it has the look of one) so you can get away with using it as such 🙂
