- Wedding: October 2021 - LDS Seattle Temple & Hotel 1000
Before the wedding I wore it constantly but now it seems like it is always an inconvenience to have it on. The prongs catch on my clothing, it seems like I’m always cooking or cleaning something and I don’t want to wear it while doing anything like that, and once I take it off I always forget to put it back on. That is one reason why I love my flat and simple wedding bands.

i wear my ring all the time, my e-ring is not high so it doesnt get caught.

If my wedding band is on, my engagement ring is on as well. I take the pair off if I’m baking and mixing dough with my hands, or painting, and often when I’m in the lab with my gloves on all day depending on what I am doing, the rings can be quite uncomfortable under the gloves, so I’ll take them off and loop them through a necklace. But since my wedding band is an eternity ring, if it’s a situation where I wouldn’t want anything to catch in my engagement ring, I also don’t want it to get caught in the stones of my wedding band. I have two ring stands (one for the kitchen, one for the bathroom) so I can take them off and leave them there when necessary, but I’ve never forgot to put them back on afterward.

They are always on unless I am showering or am up to my elbows in meat or dough. My husband paid a very. pretty. penny. for my engagement ring and I love it more than I ever thought I would…of course, check back with me after we have a baby…because I can only imagine that the 1st time I nick the baby with my ring I will take it off until they are 18.

I wear mine all the time. The only time my e-ring comes off is when my wedding band also does. So, the only time that really happens is when I’m baking or cooking something that will get gunk in all the crevices of my rings.

I wear both and only take them off to put lotion on (during which time I put them in my mouth!) because I’m deathly afraid of forgetting to put them back on or losing them. This might also be why I gaze lovingly at them oh, only about three hundred and forty times a day.

I wear mine any time we are going out and about but if we are just sitting around at home most times I don’t have it on. It sits up high and ends up catching on things. I love it though and I wouldn’t want anything else!!!

seabreeze I’m totally with you there! In fact just yesterday I was putting lotion on with e-ring in mouth and my fiance made me laugh and I spit my ring out! It rolled under the stove and I almost had a heart attack! I quickly tried to retrieve it before he had seen what happened. Whew. I may need to buy myself a ring stand. My mouth doesn’t seem to be a safe place for holding my ring anymore. 😉

I intentionally requested a wedding band that coordinated with my e-ring but was not attached, so that I could have the option of just wearing the band. My e-ring is beautiful, and I love wearing it – but for practicality I know that I won’t always want to. For example, when we go camping, I only wear my band. But for now at least, it’s always on (unless I’m doing something dirty, in which case I don’t wear either). I’ve gotten much better about not damaging things with it (it sticks up), so really I’m concerned about damaging the ring itself.
DH went along with my request, but apprently it kind of hurt his feelings. The other day, for no particular reason, he said "I’m really glad that you wear your ring all the time. I was afraid you wouldn’t." Awww! I felt so bad.

I used to wear my engagement ring all the time on a chain around my neck. It’s close to my heart and I didn’t worry about constantly taking it off when doing dishes or cooking. Now that I’m married, I’m wearing it on my right hand, but still put it on the chain when I need to take it off so that it won’t get lost.

My wedding band is super thin and I really only like it with my e-ring – so it’s either both or neither. When I’m out of the house, I always wear them, but around the house they aren’t always on.

i take my e-ring off while at home, but i wear it everywhere else i go. 🙂

I take it off when I shower and when I clean. I’ve never forgotten to put it back on. I feel naked without it. Mine is also fairly high, and sometimes threads get stuck in the prongs, but I’ve learned to turn in to the inside of my palm when I put on a sweater or anything that it could snag.

Sometimes the e-ring catches on to something (or scratches Hubby), but I’m still wearing it with my wedding band.
Of course in our case, my e-ring served as a wedding band until we had our family ceremony (1 year and 4 month after the civil wedding), so to me they both have a special feel.
I only remove my rings (and all at once) if I’m working in the kitchen (cooking, dishes), showering or sleeping.
There is nothing wrong with just wearing your wedding band though, and if you want to keep your e-ring with you, you can always put it on a necklace. Oh and check with your husband how he feels about it.

I also purposely didn’t have my rings soldered together, as I intended to wear only the wedding ring at least part of the time. However, I mostly wear the wedding ring on my left hand and the e-ring on my right hand. I absolutely love them both, and really only take them off to shower or do heavy cleaning, or messy cooking (biscuits, or meatloaf – channel set diamonds do not look nice full of hamburger).
My center stone sits up fairly high, but it’s a four-point tension setting, so the "prongs" are pretty chunky, and curved. As a result, it’s very seldom that anything gets caught in them (a dog hair every now and then). If you have a lot of trouble with stuff getting caught on your ring, you might consider getting it reset at some point. We had our rings custom made, but here’s a link to a photo of a setting that’s really similar to mine:
