@urchin:  Some people get them as an anniversary gift and wind up with 2 bands. Others like the look asthetically. I personally have an enhancer wrap which is 2 band connected at the bottom and my e ring slips into the middle of it. The way my ring is made with a split shank a regular band wouldn’t fit flush and I thought it looked better to have the wrap made for it that way it fits flush. The wrap in itself acts as my band but there is no meaning behind 2 bands for me other than my ring looks better with it to me!

I always thought that the second band was supposed to be an anniversary gift. I already know I’m getting mine for our anniversary:)

I am also getting a wedding band and then later an anniversary band.

The second band might be for the renewal of vows for some. I don’t think there is any one “right” way to go about it. If you like the look but won’t be wearing the second band for any sentimental reason, then just go for it. 🙂

Mine is for symmetry

My OCD prefers a band on each side just for symmetry. 

My inner magpie just likes more sparkles! 🙂

I wanted one that “goes” with my e-ring and also a plain band to wear on “no diamond” days 😉

@urchin:  My husband bought two when he bought my engagement ring. He bought the second as either a one year anniversary gift or a push present. Seeing as how our one year just passed and no ring, I now assume it will be a push present some day. I kind of wish I didn’t know about it.

My mother has two.  My dad thought her ring looked uneven so he got her the 2nd one for their 1st anniversary and had them all soldered together.  You know, the old “hey sweetie, it’s almost been a year, I have to take your ring in to get checked.”

My rings are perfectly unbalanced, just like our lives.  🙂

I have two for two reasons:

1. I can’t stand things that are not balanced (cuz I am wierd that way lol). Its like a sandwich with no top peice of bread…wth?

2. I lucked out as my mother gave me her orginal wedding band which I love and wear with my wedding band with my engagement ring in the middle.

It’s an entirely asthetic choice for me…Mr. 99 has a really thick wedding band and I was always hoping for a more substantial setting because I have the kind of hands that can pull off a big honking chunk of gold and diamonds on it…so we added the second band last year because frankly…all of the settings I looked at didn’t do it for me…and sooner or later, we’ll upgrade the center stone.

I couldn’t decide if I wanted the white gold or rose gold, so FI got me both.

no signifigance for me.. I just get bored easy and I have long fingers so I like more coverage…. so I will be rotating a total of 5 bands with at least three of them being on my finger at any given time.   For my wedding ceremony, I have a diamond band that i will use.
