I wear both regularly, I feel “naked” if I’m only wearing one… That said, I did buy a wedding band that COULD be worn alone (as opposed to a curved one, I have a halo) if I chose to.

I say do whatever you want though, I love the look of mine together and I really love my engagement ring so it would be hard for me to part with them on a regular basis.

I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t wear both engagement and wedding rings? I didn’t know only wearing your engagement ring on a special occasion was a ‘thing’.

I can’t wear either to work but I try to put both of them on during the weekends.

McBezel:  Maybe not the wrong way but the traditional way. Traditionally you slip your ering onto your other hand for your wedding ceremony so that you wedding band goes on your ring finger first. As it is the most important it should be first as your ring finger derives from a vein that goes directly to your heart. But hey if its comfier or works for you that’s cool.

Most women I know wear both rings and that’s what I plan on doing.  My Fiance would be pissed if I didn’t wear the e-ring after we were married or only “saved” it for special occasions.

I’ve seen quite a few women from my mom’s and grandmother’s generations that wear only 1 ring, but I’m guessing it’s either because they did not have an e-ring, or they had their e-ring and wedding band made into 1 ring.

I’m not engaged or married yet, but I plan on wearing both by default. I love jewelry, and I would personally find it to be a shame to keep my e-ring sitting in a box most of the time.<br /><br />But I do anticipate some circumstances where I will not wear my e-ring. As an education student, I know there is a pretty high chance that I will eventually teach at a less-affluent school. While my e-ring probably won’t be have a diamond or a similarly sparkly, colorless center stone, the green sapphire DBF and I plan on using is pretty big. I have no idea how I’d feel in a situation like that, so I guess I’ll cross that bridge when I get there.<br /><br />Also, I do notice differences in age are a factor in whether married women wear their e-rings or not. It seems that in both real life and on the Bee, younger women tend to wear their e-rings the most, with middle-aged women more likely to prefer just their wedding band. I’m less sure about older women, but DBF’s grandmother still wears her full set, and she’s in her seventies and in mainland Europe, where engagement rings seem less common after marriage.

MrsSpagan:  I’m Yet another bee who wears the Engagement Ring first… I use the thought, the e-ring was a promise, the w-band sealed that promise… idk why it would bug you 

 

 

Some people only wear the W-band (my boss included) for many many reasons. If you Engagement Ring is un-pratical, too flashy, or could be destracting in a office setting.

I’ll definiely be wearing both rings all the time. My ring isn’t huge, less than a carat, but I’m pround that Fiance afforded it when he was 20 and he spent too much money for it to sit in a box most of the time. Plus, my wedding band was made to bend around my ering, so it looks weird if I wear it alone.

NEAM2014:  it doesn’t bug me that much! don’t get offended guys 🙂 I just figure the more traditional way based on the ring finger was always the way to wear it. But like I said if ering first works for you go with it!

MrsSpagan:  It’s actually the right way to wear the rings in other cultures. In some, the engagement ring is a simple band and the wedding ring is what we traditionally think of as the engagement ring. To me, there’s no wrong way to wear such important (and beautiful) jewerely.

I usually wear both during the day, but take my engagement ring off the minute I get home. I wear my wedding band constantly (except cleaning and working out), and my engagement ring just to work. I love wearing my wedding band alone because it’s so light and I can’t even feel it on my hand.

I plan on wearing both, as I love them both too much to not wear both. Plus, my band was specifically picked out to curve around my e-ring, so it’d look weird without it. I’m also planning on having mine soldered together, so the choice won’t even be there. 

 

I also can’t wear mine at work, so I’ll get a plain band stand in for that. Wedding sets should neeeever be out in the middle of a lake!
