    Your ring is beautiful but the wedding band is what indicates that you are married and not engaged. 

    It’s really up to you two as a couple.

    I would think you should be able to find one though, talk to the jeweler where he got it

    Hmmm.. I think it’s the other way around. You NEED the wedding band, but you technically don’t need an engagement ring. It is what shows that you are married. If you don’t have it, everyone who sees your finger will only think you’re engaged. Does he not realize that?

     

    Do any of the jewelry consultants ever have any recommendations or have you looked online?

    I agree that it’s a personal decision for each couple…for me the wedding band is a big deal  but several of my close friends only wear their e-ring and have no regrets.

    I’m a bit confused by your title vs. your post…is it that your Fiance doesn’t want you to have one or is it that he’s saying that if you don’t find one that works, it will be ok?

    Is it an issue of cost? You can totally find affordable bands that will compliment your ring! NEED? no…but you really should get to have one. Btw….i love your ring! it’s so unique

    To those that said you have to have a wedding ring or you’ll look like you’re not married – not at all! Some rings are designed to fly solo. It’s pretty recent (within the last few decades) that wedding bands became all but “mandatory” (i.e. women just wanted more bling!), so if you’re a little more old-fashioned, you don’t have to buy another! 

    Your ring has a very unusual shape and you might not find a band that you like with it, unless you like the really mismatched “gap” shape. 

    Here’s my ring – it’s a very unusual shape that simply won’t do with a band, and I like it that way! My mom always just had one simple ring, so I grew up thinking that a ring on the ring finger = married.

    But – that said – if you really want the band and can afford it, go for it. But it doesn’t have to be the end-all-be-all “married” sign!

    You don’t need a wedding band, but I think if you want one you should get one.

    This is a tough one. For me personally my wedding band is the most important part of my set so I would feel naked without one. I know you say you really want a band so do you think wearing your band on the left and e-ring on the right might be an option for you?

    I’m also of the belief that ring on left ring finger = engaged or married. drives me nuts when people wear rings on the left ring finger decoratively! if you want a band, you should get one .. but I think your ring is very unique looking and would look strange with a band.
