    Hi OP! I don’t have these yet, but I know I am getting a plain 2 mm band to wear essentially all the time (eg never take it off) and then stacking another small diamond band with that and my e-ring. At night/whenever I don’t feel like bling, the e-ring and diamond wedding ring will come off, but the thin plain band will stay. Make sense? FWIW, I think I am only going to take the plain band to “exchange” at the ceremony.

    @koveline:  I think it’s quite common. I am likely going to do this when the time comes. If I go swimming or something I’d like to wear a ring, but not anything too fancy if my e-ring and wedding band end up w. diamonds.

    I got two bands because I loved the symmetry and glitteryness haha 😉 I will wear them both with my e-ring after we get married. I don’t want to get them soldered together though because I want the option to change up my look over time haha.

    I’m really tough on my jewelry, according to the jeweler who keeps yelling at me when I see her.  So DH got me a wedding band online that I can wear, and it was only $40.00 so if i break that or loose it, it’s not a big deal…. except now when I see the jewler she yells at me for not wearing my nice engagement ring and pretty band.  ( We live in a small town and I keep running into her like it’s my freakin job)

    Also, my mom had a 2c engagment ring, with another 2c wedding band and she was worried about loosing it, or getting it stolen, so she wore it on nice occasions only, normally just a gold band.  My SIL who got that set, had to get a plan band for everyday because her job is very physical.

    My e ring came with a matching band.The band is so slim (and it’s also curved) so I wouldn’t want to wear it alone. I’ll probably get it soldered to my e ring. I bought a plain stainless steel 3mm band that I will wear when I’m afraid to damage or lose my regular rings.

    Technically I have 3 wedding bands because I also have a yellow gold stand-in set to wear when I’m wearing other yellow gold jewelry.

    I have my matching wedding band soldered to my e-ring. I really didn’t want the bands to be rubbing together, and I have a faux wedding band to wear during times like when I go out on the town with girlfriends and I don’t want to get robbed.

    otherwise, I will always wear my wedding set. after all, he promised himself to me with it.

    I think it’s very common to have mutliple rings, people like options! I have a yellow gold band, that is my original wedding ring, I have a three stone anniversary ring and now a princess cut solitaire and two super thin eternity bands. The princess and the bands is a set to replace my original e-ring, that I lost a few years ago. 

    I love having the option to switch things up, I wear my princess with an eternity band on either side most of the time, I also wear my bands all together, an eternity on either side of my wedding band for when I want some sparkle without the high setting of my princess getting in the way, I wear my wedding ring alone for activites with my hands and my anniversary ring I wear on my left ring finger to switch it up. I am also probably going to get some silver bands with colored CZs for fun!

    I find it funny that girls of our generation seem to do this…I look at all the older women I know and they all wear both their wedding band and e-ring every day, in the pool, whatever, no stand-ins…I figure hey, they’re insured, I don’t want to wear a “stand-in” I want to wear the “real thing” every day, maybe I’m a sucker for symbolism, but I’ve seen my mother go swimming in the ocean and do the gardening etc etc in both of her rings for the last 30 years (well, I didn’t see the first 5 years of it, but you know what I mean, haha) and never have an issue. Whereas my father has taken his off for physical/messy activities and has lost his ring about 5 times over the years (through insurance he just replaces it for the same one each time though, lol).

    I had to solder my diamond band to my ering to prevent damage from the set rubbing together.  I have a very simple 18K gold plated band to wear on it’s own during physical or dirty work, but I’d love something a WEE bit fancier, and in rose gold

    I picked a diamond wedding band with the tiniest curve in the world so I am contemplating getting a straight plain band in case I wanna be simple

    I will have one wedding band, which we will solder to my e-ring. We plan on adding a band to the other side on an anniversary. The image below you see the stock photo for my wedding band. 

    I will, however, also have a wedding band to wear alone. It is an eterninty band, with round diamonds set in platinum. It’s actually my great-grandmothers wedding band. I will wear this probably at work, my e-ring sits a little too high to go under gloves, and perhaps on vacations or instances where a more low key set would be more appropriate.

    I know this is a 6 month old post that was bumped for question, but darn it, I’m replying anyway! :p

    I have just the one band and one e-ring. But I’ve only been married for 7 months. I know that my mom has a matching set she was married with (the band is curved to match the ering, that she only wears on SUPER occasions) and a plain gold ring that she wears daily. I actually never knew that she had the original set until right before I was maried, I thought she just had the gold.

    I do like the idea of going out on an anneversary and getting a plain gold band, since this really symbolizes “marriage” to me. But the ring that I have is pretty plain as is, and doesn’t have a dip to it, so it’s not really a neccesity.
