I am a super laborious person. Lol. In my first marriage I wore both rings, most of the time. Even in medical field, art n refinishing and as a personal trainer. But I did also have a spare plain titanium band for times like camping, motorcycling etc.
This round, my bf chose a very delicate pave and prong setting. So the plan is to get two thin, plain white gold wedding bands, 1 each side for protection, and when I’m working hard on my hands just wear the bands.

Absolutely! The ring is too pretty and expensive to be tucked away collecting dust forever imo. Plus, my fiance expressed that he agrees that I should continue to wear the e-ring, so out of respect for his wishes I will as well.

Girl we did not spend all this money for the ring to go back in a box! For real, though, the only time I take my ring off is for cooking messy stuff, when I go to dance classes, and lately my hands have been hurting because of the winter, so I’ve been taking jewelry off.

I plan to wear my rings until I die. I an a stay at home mom, and I do a ton of things around the house, go on playdates with other kids, nothing too fancy, and I also go to fancy places. I never take off my rings. They symbolize something to me… I love the way my hand looks with my rings and what they show the world (that i am married)

I have select 24/7 jewelry I never take off. All gifts from my husband: a small tiffany bracelet, a platinum diamond necklace (which I wanted for years and years and years) marching studs and my wedding set. I never take any of these off. Literally never, except when they reach the point that they need deep cleaning.
Before that I only wore a jade bangle I brought back from China.
I say to each their own. I always plannend on wearing my weddding set 24/7 when the time came. Never crossed my mind not to do so eventhough I am from a culture where the ering is like a placeholder for the wedding band and iisn’t worn after the wedding. (Well it was like that till we got Americanized in that area. I love it) I got a weddingband that can stand alone. That was important to me in case I don’t want to wear my ering. Well, that never happened…
you should get what you want and you might be surprised. You might just not want to take it off anymore.

I originally got an engagement band from Darling Husband because I’m also not a big jewelry person and don’t generally like having things on my hands. Plus my job would sometimes make it annoying to have a typical engagement ring. Eventually I decided I did want a traditional engagement ring so I got one. Also got a wedding band. For the most part I only wear the engagement band and wedding band together. I’ll sometimes wear the engagement ring out to dinner or something, but it mostly stays in the box. All rings come off as soon as I get home, though because I’m still not a big jewelry person and don’t love having stuff on my hands.

I didn’t wear my engagement ring much after we got married, I wasn’t a big jewelry person either and it felt too fancy for everyday wear. But my hubby was a little sad that I stopped wearing it so I had the stone reset into a plain bezel setting and I wear it every day now. If I had known then what I know now I would have just gotten a more simple setting in the beginning. If you really think you’re not going to wear it though, save your money.

I’m not a big jewelry person – I wear diamond studs in my ears that I rarely take out, and that’s was about it. But I love wearing my e-ring and wedding band set and wear them every day. The only tones o don’t wear them are when I’m working out, when I’m cleaning, and at bedtime.

mel2 : why not choose something low set and modestly sized so you’ll be able to wear it all the time? That’s what I did and never take my rings off and the only thing about them that ever bothers me is when my fingerss shrink in the cold and they move around a bit, but beyond that they are very comfortable and never get in the way.

agree with pp. I have a low set ring that I may not even need a wedding band because it doesn’t get in the way and I already feel like it’s a statement on my hand. I am not a jewelry person either. I have studs I wear in my ears (I sleep in them too) and wear my engagement ring everyday. I’m attached 😬

I did until after my daughter was born. I wear just my wedding band for now. Just until she’s more independent. Then I am going right back wearing my set full time.
But my husband has family members who don’t wear their engagement rings and that is okay. Not everyone is a jewellery person. If you would feel better getting a wedding band and just wearing that then do that! If you would rather go ringless then that’s fair! You and your husband will know you are married and that’s what matters.
