    i guess i am a little confused by the question…do you mean just the e-ring?  or just a random ring, more like a solitary band??

    Do whatever you want!  As long as it has that special meaning to you and your husband, wear what you are comfortable with.

    Aren’t they the same thing? The names are used are frequently interchangeable but most people call them all rings to differentiate them from earrings, bracelets and other jewelry. Either way, wear whatever you want.

    If you’re worried people won’t think you’re married, then you should maybe get a band if it would really bother you, but otherwise there is definitely no reason to get a band if you don’t actually want one.

    You can do whatever you want. You don’t even need a ring to be legally married. Personally, I like people who do their own thing. FH’s sister has a $20 wedding band as her only ring and I really admire that.

    Wow that ring is gorgeous! I feel that sometimes the wedding industry has made us all a little crazy and expects everyone to conform to some degree. Do what makes you happy and not what society tells you is “correct”.

    you can do whatever you like!  

    you could also do what some other cultures do, and maybe wear a plain band on your right hand…i, ironically, have a plain band on my right hand, but thats because it’s a ring my parents bought for me when I was young and I just wear it there =)

    I’ve always had this question on my mind…even after getting married. My husband made my engagement ring and designed it himself! Its truely one of a kind! Because of this, I cannot find a band to fit with the shape of my e-ring. Sadly, my friends and mother convinced me to get a ring that could fit with a band and I went ahead and got a “temp” ring until I could find a set I liked. Unfornately, while searching through thousands of bridal sets….I’m still in love with my e-ring and only want to wear it instead. All the other rings have no meaning to me, so I’ve decided to just wear my e-ring as my wedding ring.

    What I’m trying to say is don’t settle for something that doesn’t feel right. There are no rules as to what your wedding ring should be. Its what makes you feel comfortable and what has meaning to you. Because when it comes down to it, you are the one who’s going to be wearing this ring for a very long time. 😉

    I work with someone who only wears a ring (similar to that, but a three stone princess cut).  When I first started to work here, I assumed she was engaged, but later I found out she is married.  She is the only person I have known to only wear one ring after marriage.  Honestly, I found it to be confusing.  I don’t know her very well, but for all this time I just assumed she was engaged when really she is married.  I could have really messed up and asked how her wedding plans were going or something!

    I don’t think you need two rings, and I don’t think that your one ring has to be a plain band. A wedding ring is whatever your husband gives you on your wedding day to wear as a wedding ring, so get what you like.

    i agree, your wedding “ring” can be whatever you like.. whether thats 1, 2, 3 rings with diamonds or pearls, or a tatoo. as long it has meaning than thats what counts.

    I don’t plan on getting a wedding band to go with my engagement ring because I don’t really like the look of stacking rings.  I am going to get another diamond ring as my wedding ring, to wear either on my right hand, or on my left hand on days I don’t feel like wearing my engagement ring.  You can do whatever you like.
