I’ve been thinking about just wearing one ring (my engagement ring) and not get a wedding band. I’d like to hear from those who only have one ring about their experience with it and if they changed their minds later. For me personally I don’t like wearing jewelry of any kind. I do love my ring though.

Not me, but there are ladies here who have one ring.

I usually wear only one ring. For years I just wore my e-ring on my left hand and my wedding band on my right because I couldn’t wear them together. Since I’m right handed I used to band around my wedding band a lot so them I just wore the e-ring on my left hand. It’s not uncommon by me to see ladies wearing only one ring after they are married.
I had my e-ring diamond reset into a pendant recently and I wear it every day. Most of the time I wear my plain wedding band but I recently got a new diamond band for my birthday so that’s what I’ve been wearing lately.
I’m not a big jewelry person either and wearing 2 rings just doesn’t feel comfortable to me. When I just wore the e-ring I was only asked a handful of times when the wedding was and it was really no big deal. I also prefer the look of just one ring. Some sets are really pretty but there are so many where I think it is just more elegant to have the one ring (whether it be just an e-ring or a wedding band) shine.

I only wore 1 ring for my first marriage but it was pretty thick setting.

My mom just wears one, it’s an emerald cut with baguettes so a band wouldn’t sit flush next to it. She has a wedding band but doesn’t wear it very often, unless she isn’t wearing the engagement ring. My ring is emerald cut as well, a 3-stone with emerald side stones. It could definitely hold its own without a band, but I like the idea of wearing a band so I’m going to try to find something to work with it. I will probably wear it alone as well though, I like having the option. It’s really just personal preference, there’s certainly no reason you have to get a band and I don’t think it’s uncommon for people just to wear one ring, be it their engagement ring or their wedding ring.

Me. I have a solitaire on a thin band. It was a high quality stone and I do not want him to spend more at this juncture. Maybe for our 10 year I’ll get the stone reset in rose gold with pave diamonds or something but now that I’ve committed to the one ring look I really like it and don’t want to stack anymore 🙂

My day-of coordinator just wears one ring – a beautiful, thin eternity band, it looks something like this:
I was inspired by her so I ordered a wedding band just like that. I do have a traditional engagement ring but I like the idea of just wearing the pretty wedding band some days. Here’s what it looks like:

I wear just a 2mm white gold band with small diamonds in it. I’m not really a major jewelry person, so I pretty much always knew I’d be wearing just a band after we got married. I do have an engagement ring, though, which I wore up until the wedding, and now wear for special occasions (or if I just want to be extra fancy one day). It’s nice to have the option.
I really like wearing just the one ring. It’s light and low-profile, and I’m tough on my hands, so I appreciate that I’m not whacking a stone into everything all the time.

I only wanted one ring from the start, and I wanted it to be more like a wedding band than an engagement ring, so Darling Husband and I were ring shopping with that in mind. Not wanting to miss out on the bling, I chose the garland diamond band from Blue Nile (I got the 1/2 eternity version of the ring in the picture, but they don’t sell it anymore). It was totally the right decision for me. I get a lot of compliments about how unique it is and nobody has made any comments about my not having a separate engagement ring.

I’m kind of leaning towards just wearing my engagement ring. The detail on my ring is amazing, center stone is a radiant cut, set a little higher. I have a ton of little diamonds set almost on the underside of stone/band and top of it as well (if that makes sense). I have tried on a couple of bands with it and the band covers up the detail I love so much. I like the idea of a thin diamond eternity band to wear on occasions when I don’t want to wear my engagement ring, but probably won’t wear the two together.

One ring that I will flip “band side in” once we are married.
