    I like the simplicity of just the band. It’s always appealed to me.

    I do plan to wear both often, but there will be plenty of times I only wear the band.

    @Spoonie: i was almost beginning to think i was crazy for not wanting to wear my engagement ring 24/7 after marriage. i see a lot of women wear their rings together all the time, everyday, and thought that was the norm… it could be the fact that my mom only wears her wedding ring on an everyday basis and wears her ‘engagement’ ring on special occassions. 

    i guess i just don’t think it’s practical to wear all the time, especially after having children and etc… which is why i’m planning to have an entirely different band so i can wear it alone without my ering!

    I’ve heard of a lot of people wearing just the band on the left hand and moving their e-ring to the 4th finger of their right hand after marriage.  I don’t think it’s odd!  =)

    I don’t think it’s crazy at all and am leaning toward doing the same for many of the reasons PP have already mentioned. Sometimes I look at the ‘stacked’ engagement + band look and just think it’s…too much for everyday. The other reason is that while my engagement ring is platinum (and I <3 it!), I find that I’m drawn to yellow gold wedding bands. I’m not convinced that mixed metals will look good on me, so I’ll probably just rock my gold band solo after we get married.

    @Spoonie Exactly! I really like the idea of wearing both perhaps on special occasions, our anniversary, etc. But not if I’m just running out to go to the store or running errands, etc.

    i do that! my ering is non-standard shape that would have needed a custom band to fit with it, and i didn’t like the options for that. i wear it on my right hand and my wedding band on my left. actually i wear 2 really thin bands–one is plain, and the other is an eternity band. i love the flexibility of the 3 rings–if i’m travelling somewhere sketchy, for example, i can wear just the plain one for example ๐Ÿ™‚

    eta: i also did mixed metals. my ering is white gold and my bands are rose gold ๐Ÿ™‚

    I will wear mine together most of time unless I am doing something that my e ring could get in the way or damaged like moving, sports, etc. Then I would just wear my band. Unless I get them soddered I am struggling with the decision weather or not to do that.

    I always wear just my wedding band to work..and I work a lot ๐Ÿ™‚  Plus, if I’m off for <24 hours and/or just hanging around the house I often won’t bother to put my engagement ring on either. I mostly wear it on special occasions/nights out/family events/vacations.

    I ended up with three rings, which has really helped out.  I got engaged with a band with ten diamond stars spread through it (the Tiffany etoile).  That was my dream ring so that is what my fiancé knew to get to thrill me.  Then we picked out a solitaire together.  The solitaire did not pair well with the band, so we added an eternity band to go with the solitaire, and I had them soldered together.  Right now I wear my engagement ring, the etoile band, on my ring finger.  Once I am married that will move to my right hand and I will wear the solitaire ring on my left.  But what is so nice is that for times when we are traveling or when I go to the gym (or anytime when the bigger ring combo isn’t appropriate) I can just wear my original engagement band on my left hand.  Which is exactly what I will do during the honeymoon as we travel.

    So just a band on the left hand is lovely.
