@Creiddylad:  I think that ring is amazing! get it in the larger band- you’ll have the peace of mind and if you wear gloves it will be perfect always!

I have a plain, 3mm comfort fit platinum wedding band which I LOVE. Don’t get me wrong, I love diamonds as much as the next person, but I wanted something I could leave on all the time and not worry about.  Since I have had kids I rarely wear my e-ring anymore, not that I don’t love it, but just doing so much stuff with my hands during the day, it’s easier to not wear it, but I love that I can leave my wedding band on all the time.

OP, personally I don’t see why you couldnt’ wear that band that you picked all the time, yes….gold will wear away over time, but that’s OVER time….it won’t be over night. The diamonds appear to be bezel set into the band…it should wear well.  If you like it…wear it all the time!!

Congrats!

@Creiddylad:  Costs ARE terrible… but honestly, you don’t want to be worrying or WORSE have to replace it. I think somethings are worth spending a bit more on. But like you said, you have some time! Good luck lady! It’s a gorgeous ring and if you love gardening and being outside so much, it’s basically made for you!

@Creiddylad:  Hmm that sucks about rose gold wearing more quickly!

I usually wear both rings when I’m doing field work.  I don’t do a ton of stuff where I’m getting my hands in the dirt or water, though.  I do take my e-ring off when I’m atv-ing (which is a pretty big component of my job during part of the season) because I get incredibly dusty and filthy.  My wedding band is just a thin band so it goes just about everywhere I do.

Do I remember that you do aquatic stuff?  That might be a little different – lots of mud and goo.

I’d just get it and wear it, and assume that any potential wear and tear would be really gradual.  If you cover it in your insurance, I think that should cover replacing a stone, and it usually only costs ~1% of the appraisal value per year.

My band is platinum, 2mm. I wear it for everything. I have a diamond and sapphire band too but I always worry I will damage it. I think the band you picked will be fine to wear all the time. 

ETA: My diamond and sapphire band is shared prong, not burnished set like yours, which I think is why I worry about damage.

@Creiddylad:  yay biology!  I hear ya about the rock scrambling… a decent chunk of my job is checking on (mostly inactive) golden eagle and ferruginous hawk nests, which are usually located on cliffs or rocky outcroppings.  I have to scramble up to each of them if there’s no sign of an adult around, just to make sure there aren’t eggs in the nest or whatever.  I usually wear both rings for that, because my e-ring is fairly low profile and even the scrambling doesn’t really entail bashing my hands on rocks… usually.

I really like that other ring you posted!  Would you wear it alone, or with your e-ring too?  In another life I’d definitely have a leafy or twiggy ring, but I’ll just live vicariously through my husband’s wood grain patterned one.

(Speaking of work – I should go DO some.  Hope the semester is wrapping up well for ya.  I’m also editing a MS for publication right now and it’s a nightmare… just want to be done with it!)

That ring is really pretty!

Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with taking off your band when needed. DH removes his every morning to shower, because he doesn’t like how it slides around a bit in the water (not loose, but he just doesn’t like it) My band has diamonds, and I’ve taken it off this week when I was making cookies, cleaning out the fish tank, cleaning the sink with a scrubbing powder, etc.

At some point I’m going to get a plain band that’s very similar to DH’s, for travel and sports. We recently did a water fall climb on a vacation, and I wore another silver band. My ring probably would have been fine, but my thought is- why take chances with it?

@Creiddylad:  love that band but also love the moissanite one that dradkins posted. It will probably match your ering better, plus way cheaper.
