You’re not alone!  :-). I also have a Tungsten band and I’ve purchased a couple of really narrow rose gold bands.  I like to mix it up.

I’m temped to order myself one of the jvl’s for outdoor activities as well! My wedding will be pretty on its own but something safe would be a good idea!

I’m in nursing school and am unable to wear anything that my catch and tear clothes or an elderly patient’s skin.  I’d like to get a channel ring in white gold but for now I have a cheapy CZ one.  It works for now.

I technically have 3 also.  I have a diamond prong set anniversary band, a plain 2mm comfort fit band, and a 4mm wide tungsten band.  I rarely wear the tungsten band because I just find it too wide.  I only paid $30 for it so I don’t feel too bad.  I wear the 2mm plain band the most.

I only have one but I think some day I’d like another (or an “anniversary band”). My wedding band is very thin, 2mm, which is how I wanted it and it looks great with my e-ring. But when I wear it alone (which I do with some regularity) I feel like it looks a little insubstantial. I think that some day for an anniversary I’d like a wider diamond band. Ideally something like this, but I’d also be happy with something less expensive but still wider.

I have a gold one & a 2mm tungsten one. I got the tungsten one to wear when I golf so it wont bend. BUT its to big so I have had to go ringless when golfing.

I am going to just get on of those necklaces that holds rings. So when I golf I can still have them close by. 🙂 But I completely understand having more than one!

I am reading this with great interest.  It has never crossed my mind that I would EVER take my rings off once he put them on my finger.  I love how we are all so different and individual!

While a plain band will be my primary band, I’m considering getting a little sparkly cz band for days I’m feeling girlie.  Eventually I might want to get a palladium moissy ring like that, but for now it’s just not a practical way to spend money.

@tobikay:  I thought I would be the same way. But even with a plain gold band, when working out or golfing I can’t wear it because it could bend over time.

ME!  Haha, I felt crazy, but I’d ALWAYS planned on having more than one for different things.  My ‘actual’ wedding band (the one used for the ceremony) will be a 4mm titanium wedding band with tiny diamonds…it matches FI’s titanium wedding band, except for the stones, and that was important to me.  However, I have short fingers and 4 MM is too thick to wear with my dainty engagement ring (I tried them all on in a store and they looked terrible together but nice alone), so this one will be worn a large majority of the time (work, gardening, playing with dirty things, etc).  I also ordered a very similar ring, but thinner, in sterling silver and diamonds for a steal online, so that I could wear it with my engagement ring on days I wanted to wear 2 rings as a set.  And, just to confuse myself, I have the prong set eternity band that came with my engagement ring that I can stack with my ‘set’ or wear for all out sparkle, LOL.  I did it sort of backwards, since my ‘play’ wedding ring will be my ‘real’ one, but I’m actually really excited to get them…the wait is killing me!

First time around, I also had 3 when all was said and done.  Original, plain non-diamond 2-tone gold band that I loved but was too thick (6MM, yikes!!) and hurt my finger due to engraving on inside that chafed and left my finger raw and red, a yellow gold and diamond gypsy set band that could never be sized so wasn’t always comfortable but great on swollen finger days, and a diamond channel set band that was my everyday go-to wedding ring.

@abirdword:  I want a palladium moissy band too!!  I’m insane, LOL.  Thankfully, Fiance doesn’t care WHAT I wear on that finger, as long as I’m not asking him for several thousand dollars every year (or 6 months) for more sparklies…hahaha.

Having more than one wedding band is a brilliant idea!! hehe, I have two and if I could, I’d get more. My husband just wouldn’t understand though. I soldered my eternity band to my e-ring so I got another band to wear alone. Love them!!!
