I have an antique-style ring that I only wear alone – I don’t have a wedding band. I think with this style ring, it’s so complete and beautiful all on its own. I think back then when they designed rings like this, women didn’t wear another ring with it. Some people would be really bothered with only one ring, feeling like they look only “engaged,” but I think it would really detract from the beauty to add another ring to it!

We’re doing option 3 for my fiancée’s ring.  Not antique but custom made to her tastes, in Victorian style.

You could wear a wedding band only on your left hand, and switch your engagement ring to your right.

You could have a custom contoured band made, then buy an inexpensive plain band to wear alone if you need one separately.

Here is my ering from the 1920’s. We had the band custom made to curve around the ering. I can’t really wear it alone, but I don’t want to, so it’s no biggie to me 🙂

I’m doing option 1… there’s no real need for multiple rings if adding a wedding band makes it look awkward.

I’d do option one. Sometimes when other rings are placed with antique rings it looks weird and clunky.

I’ll be having a thin band custom made to fit with my ‘tique engagement ring, and also getting an off the shelf band to wear on its own.

Love your ring OP! I’d wear it with a straight band in a simple style from around the same period, and not mind the gap. If the metal is the same material I don’t think ring-on-ring wear will be too great. Any ring will get light scratches eventually.

@bridgetdarling  – No, no one has ever asked me when the wedding is, or anything.

@bridgetdarling:  I LOVE just staring at your ring, it’s gorgeous. And you should look into more a ring that might also be an antique wedding band.

@MissRoche:  Wow. My birthstone is Pearl and I your ring is so beautiful.
