    Change my wedding band or wear them anyway.

    If I had a choice in purchasing them, I would not be in this situation to start with.  I’d have picked a w-band that goes with my e-ring.

    If they were heirlooms, I guess I’d wear the band on my left and e-ring on my right hand or just wear them together anyways.

    Do you have a picture of the rings you’re talking about?

    Thats a loaded question because I think it depends on on what the rings look like. For example I loved my solitaire on my E-ring, but really wished my hubby had gotten a thicker band on the E ring because i have alot of finger real estate.  But after I got my diamond wedding band and started exploring stackables, I am so glad he did it the way he did it because I have so many options and as a result I change my stack upon a daily basis.

    Me personally, I would never change my E-ring because that’s what my husband picked out for me.

    linnylou_88:  i have that issue. they totally dont go together. so i just put my ering on my other hand. my wedding band is really thick so it works out. some times i feel like im neglecting my ering and other times im like bitch you get your own hand and finger, what more do you want 😉 hehe. i would never change it but would like to get an anniversary ring to sit with my wedding ring too. is that so bad?

    I think yours are absolutely perfect. You’re not married yet, right? I think that part of thinking it looks strange might be just trying them on in short bursts. When you wear them together all the time, it starts to look strang without the band! Also, I think you will get used to the extra bling. I would b so sad if you changed your set, it’s always been one of my favorites!

    Change my wedding band.  I’m actually not crazy about my wedding band. I think it could be a little blingier and am thinking about trading it in!

    linnylou_88:  I admit I’ve had moments of doubting my mismatched set too ahead of my wedding – I wore my band around the house for a day and it made me feel so much better! I think once we’re married the rings will be more special so we will love them even more 🙂

    For me, we both spent ages picking out the perfect e-ring and wedding band. I don’t see myself ever changing them. I do see myself getting an gorgeous antique 5 or 7 stone ring, but we haven’t found the right one yet. I will wear that one on days when I don’t feel like wearing my solitaire, or my plain gold band. 

    Is it a small change or are you wanting a completely different style? Could you get something like what you are wanting and alternate? I noticed you  said you are wanting something less blingy, lots of people get married with a blingy band and then have a plain gold band for more casual days, or when you are doing things like gardening.

    linnylou_88:  Can you post a pic of your rings?  I’ve seen a lot of ‘mismatched’ rings that look nice together.  I have an e-ring that was bought new for me, but a wedding band from my grandmother.  They aren’t the same, but I really like the way they look.

    IMO the e ring symbolized the committment to get married, but wedding band symbolizes the marriage as a whole.  If you really want to change one, I say change the e-ring.  If you find a good jeweler, they can alter it using materials you already have to make it match a bit better.  Another option is to get an anniversary band.. I feel like a trio of mismatched rings is better than a pair- it makes it looks like you were trying to do that.

    linnylou_88:  NO! Your rings look great together! Haha. I decided a few months in that my ruby band overpowered my ering, so I got a plainer band and sized the ruby band for my right hand! Voila. Haha.

    I don’t like my rings together, so I wear them on separate hands. Except I wear them opposite of your poll option. My upgrade “engagement ring” (though I consider it more of a wedding ring, since I was married when he gave it to me) is on the left and my original wedding band is on the right.
