    I think either way! If you want to wear them as a set, I think it looks great!! I’m probably not much help, but I do really like how they look together.

    @shrinkgirl:  so pretty! I would wear them as a set, and for days you want to be low key, I would just wear the band (leave e-ring at home).

    my “set” is very similar (emerald cut though so the gap is a little larger) and I think it looks nice together. I was really worried about the gap but I don’t even notice/care any more and actually like that its two totally separate pieces

     

    everyone tells me that at some point I won’t want to wear my Ering any more because it “gets in the way” but to be honest I think my wedding band is a lot more “in the way” (but it might be bc I am only married 4 weeks so I am not use to it yet unlike the Ering that has been 1+ yr)

    I would take the center stone out of the e-ring and have it set onto the wedding band. Then I would have some custom work done to fill in the gap on the e-ring where the center stone used to be, and I would use that as the wedding band.

    @littlemisshostess:  my mom has worn her engagement ring for 28+ years, as most of the women in my family. I never saw someone not wear it because it got in the way.

    @FoxyBride14:  yeah I hear ya…. a few friends who now have babies say that once they got pregnant and had babies they stopped wearing their E ring. my mom has a very nice anniversary ring that is much bigger and nicer than her Ering that she wears more often now (I also think that she lost a diamond from her setting or something but don’t remember the whole story)

     

    for me I don’t really plan on kids (for now at least… another one of those things that everyone tells me that I will be changing my mind on) so that shouldn’t be an issue and i don’t have a job where its an issue (ie nurse that wears gloves, manual labor where it could be a hazard etc)

     

    I guess I could see that if you really had a huge rock (like 3+ carats) that it might be a bit much for every day wear but for the rest of us I don’t see the big deal

    You should wear it in the manner that makes you most comfortable. I think it looks beautiful as a set or separately.

    Personally, I don’t get putting an engagement ring on your right hand; I would just choose not to wear it. But I like both looks – paired together and the band by itself.  

    If that gap between the two is bothersome, you could get a really low-profile spacer band that would fit between the two….at least I think that’s what some folks here have done.

    I would wear it as a set with a spacer to fill the gap (not because the gap looks “bad” but because it would probably be more comfortable)

    Another vote for a spacer band if the wedding ring diamonds rub against the prongs of your e-ring at all – over time that could damage your e-ring prongs for the center diamond.
