I know by reading tons of posts that lots of bees feel ring envy or doubt their rings. Some upgrade, some change their settings. etc.
We are human and we do tire of the same object day after day. Do you have any little tricks to keep the love alive with your wedding rings?
I know what works for me is to take off my wedding rings and wear a single band instead for a day or a even a few hours. I instantly miss my beauties and can’t wait to put them back on. I have a “travel set” of rings that I can put on as well to change things up. Again, my true love is for my original wedding set! 🙂
What do you do?…
Rings for reference:

I admire mine constantly! All lighting! I love getting to know the different facets of its personality (see what I did there?)
I love to see others’ rings, I just love to see them from an aesthetic POV, but I don’t tend to think about any other ring but my own for more than a few seconds, maybe a minute at most! It’s more like looking at art, or trees, or a meadow of flowers, to enjoy in the moment, rather than looking at options in a store to think about replacing my ring with, KWIM? I’ll never replace my ring, it is mine like my eyes are mine. i notice other people’s pretty eyes but I don’t want to pluck mine out of my skull and trade, lol!

I never fall out of love with my ring.

@joya_aspera: Haha!!!! Awesome way to put it!! Me too I find my rings are a perfect match for me and never want to change them. Other rings are totally like “art”, I agree. That’s probably why after getting my rings, I’m still on here just as much. It’s a hobby, just like any art is as well.
Love the eyeball analogy!!!!!!!!!!

I love my ring – I don’t think I will ever not love it because of the man who gave it to me.

My ring is a little plain compared to others, so sometimes I get a little bored with it. I have a friend with a super blingy ring that I’m envious of. When we get together, I ask if I can put it on for a few minutes. Whenever I do, I instantly realize it’s not me. I put my ring on and although it’s not as blingy, it’s feels like me and I fall in love with it all over again.

1) clean it. a good clean just brings the sparkle back
2) look at it under different lighting. My moissy looks different in different lighting. I love looking at it everywhere because it has its own personality and I never know what she’ll do next.

Well I have only had my current engagement ring for about a week now, but my first engagement ring I wore for about a year and a half. With that ring when I’d tire of it I would give it a nice good clean and have a photoshoot!

I don’t ever get tired of my ring but I do love it a little more everytime I see it under Walmarts lights or on a cloudy day.

I love my ring, but I definitely get size envy here on wb. I agree with cleaning it & then seeing it in your favorite lighting.
What works even better for me is forgetting them when I leave for work in the morning (not that I ever do this on purpose). I spend the entire day missing them, feeling naked, imagining this is the one day my house gets randomly robbed, etc., etc.
Ugh, don’t create a thread asking for comments- it’s likely you’ll end up feeling even worse after all the “I don’t like it, it’s not my taste” comments.

I have a band that I rotate with periodically. It changes the look but I always go back. Also, take creative pics! Lol

I don’t think I’ve ever really fallen out of love with my ring. I’ve had them for 3 and 4 years and it’s just the symbolism of them at this point that’s important. And of course they’re pretty and sparkly as well.

I change them up. I wear just the band or just one band and the ering or sandwich or two on one side. I did purchase a berricle ring for fun and I love it and am thinking of another one.

I can’t say I’ve ever had a “not loving my ring” moment. The one thing I kind of don’t like is that the prongs are bulky – I do get prong envy when I see those skinny claw prongs… but everything else about my ring is SO perfect that the one minor imperfection doesn’t affect my overall love for it. But also I helped my fiance pick it out and it’s a sapphire, which I had wanted since I was a little girl (the ONLY wedding thing that I had ever dreamed of!).
