I don’t want a wedding band either, I don’t think it will look good with my e-ring. People tend to look at me like I’m nuts when I say that… is it really that weird?

If you love the necklace, I would just get that!

I don’t have a wedding band. I don’t think it’s weird. We decided against a band for several reasons….the money, the design of my eng. ring doesn’t go well with another band, and I just don’t wear jewelry and felt it was too much.

I wouldn’t mind not having a band – I am having a hard time finding anything that looks right with my ring. BUT, my fiance really wants me to get one, so I will since it means alot to him.

Do what you want! You could always get a wedding band down the road, if you change your mind in a few years. I want a wedding band, but I don’t think one will fit with the shape of my engagement ring either. I also don’t know how I feel about wearing just the band on my left hand, and the e-ring on my right hand. I guess I don’t have to worry about it yet though, since it’s still pretty early for me.

I am not going to have a wedding band either. Just the e ring b/c it’s perfect as is…plus I don’t like to wear a lot of jewelry.

I am getting one that matches my e-ring, but the decision is up to you.  I have seen women wear all types of rings as “wedding bands”, so really, anything can work… even a non-typical e-ring can do the trick.  I say go for the necklace that you seemingly LOVE!  🙂

I think you should do what you want, and not worry about what is “traditional” or “right” — just what makes you happy.

That said, my wedding band will be the single most important piece of jewelry I ever own, and I would gladly give up my e-ring and all the rest of my jewelry for it if I had to…but if your wedding necklace means the same to you, I think it’s a perfect thing to do!

I think it is fine to wear whatever is most comfortable for you. If a necklace is a better symbol for the two of you, then I think just wearing your engagement ring is fine. Is the necklace something you’d be comfortable wearing everyday.

I worry that I won’t find one to match my e-ring as well. I’ve never considered having none though. Fiance and I actually discussed altering my e-ring to make it wedding band compatable.

A friend of mine had her wedding band merged with her e-ring. The e-ring was a solitare and the wedding band had some side stones so the band was thicker but the decoration really worked well together and the added thickness allowed her to have it engraved.
