I have the most beautiful engagement ring and I’m so in love with it. The curve of the halo is a hard curve to fit against normal curved bands so I’m looking into getting a custom one made to sit flush against my ring. I’m also not interested in a straight wedding band… I love how they look with solitaires but with my ring, the gap would bother me. The problem is that I don’t want to add anything to my band…. every time I look at ring enhancers online, it already looks like my ring. Am I crazy to not want t add anything to my e-ring? Open to opinions on what might look good… here’s my ring in different lighting and angels. Also, I’m a midwife and I’m elbows deep in vaginas all day everyday… so I don’t want anything too big. Can my ring stand alone?

There’s definitely no rule that says you HAVE to wear a wedding ring; if you like your engagement ring on it’s own than wear it on its own!
You could also get a wedding band as a right hand ring if you wanted; any excuse for another ring is a good one 😉

Of course it can stand alone. Your ring seems like the perfect combination of wedding and engagement ring. Some rings just look much better on their own IMO. Another option is to move it to your right hand and get a separate, stand alone wedding ring.

Your ring is beautiful, traditions aboit engagement/wedding rings are very location specific. Some places you where both, some you wear just one ring. IIbepive in other countries, the tradition is to wear the ering on the right hand and transfer I to the kft for marriage and then it becomes the wedding ring. Tbh, I doubt that anyone will notice anyway, so do whatever makes you happy.

I agree. There’s no rule that says you need a wedding band. I didn’t even get mine until 5 months after my wedding. If anybody noticed or cared they never said anything to me. It only got wierd once when we were shopping around for one and the man asked, “So when’s the big day?” And we laughed and were like, “been over for monthssss.”
I think your ring has enough presence that if you don’t want one you don’t need one 🙂 it’s very pretty!

That is a beautiful ring and certainly substantial enough to stand alone. I’ve got a couple friends who only wear one ring for engagement and wedding and they’re beautiful and unique and easy to wear settings. If that’s what you’re feeling works best for you, I think you should go for it.
PS- “elbows deep in vaginas all day” is a hilarious job description! 😛

I’m so happy having just one ring (having skipped the engagement and gone straight to the wedding). As long as I have my pretty diamond ring I don’t feel I’m missing anything not having a “wedding band”. I quite like being different and not being like the majority 😊

i dont have a wedding band as I love love my Engagement Ring so much and its just impossible to find any band that i like. Plus its a weird gap between two rings, so i just rock it alone 🙂 do whatever you like. Your ring is perfect on its own:)

I think you could wear it as a stand alone. I have a split shank double halo I prefer to wear alone most of the time. Maybe a plain band to wear when you don’ want to wear stones or not is a good option but not necessary. Your ring is beautiful and a nice standalone piece.

Thanks bees! As soon as I was reading all your posts I decided to treat myself to a manicure and I really can’t imagine loving another band… I think I’ll have it stand alone ☺️

I don’t know exactly what I am going to do yet, but I have an intricate triple shank e ring so I think I am going to just going to get a small diamond eternity band and alternate between wearing my e ring and wedding ring as stand alones when I am married. My e ring and a wedding band together is just going to look too busy I think. You definitely don’t have to have a wedding band if you don’t want one!

I just have one ring for similar reasons and I’m super happy with it.

no not crazy at all. I think your ring wouldn’t need another band it’s already substantial enough! It’s very beautiful! I only wear one ring and I’m married. It’s personal preference. Congrats
