i keep my ring in my jewelry box when i’m not wearing it (i rarely wear my engagement ring when i’m sleeping, and i take it off when i’m doing heavy cleaning or anything where it could be damaged). if i’m doing dishes, there’s a little ring holder in the kitchen, my ring goes there. my mother does the same with hers.

some people choose to not wear a ring sometimes. personal choice.

My ering’s tall with micropave, so it’s not suitable for everyday wear plus I knock it on things due to the height.  Most days I wear a titanium band because it’s more practical.

My engagement ring is non-traditional (I have sapphires instead of diamonds). I now wear it on my right hand because it doesn’t match my wedding band well. But I do still wear both rings.

I take my rings off often but when I’m out of the house I wear both of them.

I wear both, but would prefer to wear just my wedding band. I have a very glitzy, very expensive e-ring, and sometimes I feel uncomfortable wearing it around!

@soinlove79:  I wear both, but take off my engagement ring for some job purposes. I have a larger than average ring for my industry and it is clear that my DH does quite well. If I have a meeting with certain industry folks (the sexist pigs), I don’t want them to even focus on that I am married and leave it in my desk. The same goes for when I do site visits– it draws attention in the wrong way. 

My coworkers took of their more modest engagement rings when they had kids. They got really messy with toddlers.

@soinlove79:  I wear them both anytime I leave the house. I’ve noticed sometimes older married ladies don’t wear a ring like sometimes my mom won’t wear hers and she’s been married for 32 years. Idk, maybe the novelty of showing the world you’re taken wears off for some people.

@soinlove79:   Erings are so expensive. We lose them, we gain weight, we lose weight, they become outdated, uncomfortable (I had one that made a mark on my finger). Ive been married 10 years and have had probably 4 erings, none of them were super expensive. This year we are up grading, and I am keeping this (crosses fingers) for a very long time.

@soinlove79:  I’ve been married 11 years and always wear both of my rings!  I still love them, and get distracted by them! 🙂

I love my ring but it’s more comfortable to wear just the (simple, stoneless) band. if I’m dressing up to go on a date or whatever then sure, I’ll bring out the bling, but normally for comfort, I just have my band.

and I love my band, it means I’m married! even though it was cheaper, I definitely have more emotional attachment to it compared to the e-ring. it’s just… so dear, and means so much. the e-ring is for showing off, the band is for myself. 😉

I know what you mean, my Mom stopped wearing her e-ring, and then her w-ring right about when I was born, but it was mostly because of health, if that makes sense?  She has health issues and her hands swell a lot, and she couldn’t resize them to the point of having them fit at all times (or was scared to, and have them get stuck?).  My Dad has never worn a ring (first was an EMT, then a nurse) and so they never bought him one.  In hindsight, maybe that’s why I have never been big on rings?  I wanted something super simple for an e-ring, and I only wear it out of the house, never indoors.  I guess growing up, it wasn’t a symbol of marriage to me, as my only married role models didn’t wear them 🙂

People have lots of reasons not to wear them I guess, and health issues could come into play.

I go thru stages that I wear just my diamond band, just my plain band or all of them. Recently I have been wearing them all
