My engagment ring does not have a matching wedding band. We have tried to find something to line up with it and can’t seem to get it figure out. After talking with several jewlers they said I will have to most likely get a ring custom made. I personally like it alone. My fiance thought that maybe we could do just get a custom made ring for a later aniversary.
So the real question. Is it odd if I don’t have a wedding band to go with the engagement ring?

I’ve seen people who just wear their engagement ring so I don’t think it’s odd. I think it’s just a matter of personal preference.

You could get whatever wedding band you want and just wear them on 2 different hands. Lots of people do that.

We’re just going to use our engagement bands as wedding rings.

I don’t think it is odd to have just one ring.
I will end up with three rings and some people might find that odd, but my engagement ring is made up of two rings and my wedding ring is being custom made. There wasn’t a matching one to go with my engagement rings either.

We got my wedding band custom-made to go with my e-ring too.

I will only wear one ring.. which will be an the wedding band. I know several people who started out with two but now only wear their wedding band to work, and I like the look of just the band.

I have an ornate ring that looks beautiful on its own … so I considered not getting a wedding band as well. However, my sister in law also has a ring from shane co that is beautiful and very detailed and she has a 1/2 carat wedding band on top and bottom — both are different, one has princess cut diamond and normal settings, and the other is round pave’ and it looks sooooooo incredibly beautiful. The three rings are different but there is some detail in each wedding band that ties them all together. She made me realize that you dont have to have a wedding band that perfectly matches your wedding ring. She constantly gets compliments on how different it is.

A friend of mine has a beautiful engagement ring, with little pave diamonds all over. She isn’t getting a matching band, as she doesn’t want to hide the intricacy of her ring.
She is getting a plain band to wear to work (she works with horses) but she doesn’t plain on wearing both.

A lot of people do that.
Because of my e-ring I will be wearing my wedding band on my left and my E ring on my right hand. To me it was important to have a wedding band. Other people i know dont have them and its perfectly fine for them.

My ering is a very simple band that I LOVE, and I won’t be buying a separate wedding band. That’s in part because I can’t imagine a ring that would look good with it, in part because I’m not a jewlery person at all, and in part because it’s hard for me to keep up with ONE ring…I sure don’t want to keep up with two!

I don’t think it’s odd to have just one ring; however, I was in the same board (liking my ring alone) and had a custom band made for a relatively low price because no one realizes my ring’s an engagement ring.
I got to try it on last night, and loved the look:
Don’t totally rule out a custom band if you think you want a wedding band, too. But having one ring is fine! It’s a matter of preference.

Uh, I have 3 rings. And I wear them in any permutation you can think of–one on left hand, two on right, one on left, one on right, two on left, none on right…etc. DH and I just made a deal that at least one of the three had to be on *the* finger! 😉
There’s no rule that says you must wear your e-ring with your wedding ring (in fact, a lot of women I know have retired their e-rings–either they feel they’re too expensive to wear every day or they have jobs (teachers, scientists, doctors, chefs) that make a big rock kind of cumbersome. There are also plenty of women who never got an engagement ring, period.
You have a gorgeous ring with a sizeable stone–maybe you’d prefer to let it shine on it’s own and not worry about a band to match?

I like having my wedding band on my finger. I feel that it helps people know that I’m not engaged, I’m married. I didn’t get a matching band, I just got a simple, white gold band.
