    I take off my engagement ring that’ll go with my wedding band and wear a different ring that he gave me while I’m at work too.  I work in a group home and I don’t want to risk it being taken or get ruined somehow.  I will wear them as a set when I’m not at work though after I get married.

    Make absolutely sure that it won’t hurt FI’s feelings if you change it to a necklace.  And if he’s fine with it, I would go for it.   I’m in healthcare, and chose a simple band for my engagement ring (it will double as my wedding band) for this very reason.

    I voted for wear it on my right hand, but I usually don’t wear it at work.  I work in health care too, and have a wide, flat, simple wedding band.  I almost always wear the wedding ring and it works for me.  My engagement ring is not the traditional solitaire, it has a wider band so I really can’t wear it with my wedding band anyway, and it also has a slit in it so stuff gets in the slit.  Ew.

    I think putting the diamond in a necklace, if you’re more likely to wear it (and as long as your Fiance agrees too) is a great idea!

    @Ale:yeah, a  big (or even a small) diamond is just a pain at work.   I think the necklace is a great idea!

    We actually decided to buy a separate bridal set because my e-ring was a very cheap solitaire which was all we could afford at the time of proposal. I won’t wear my e-ring at all.

    I work healthcare too and wear my ring all the time, and will wear both. the only time i’ll take them off is when i make meatloaf or am really getting my hands messed up.
