I would never want two engagement rings but that’s just because of the sentimentality I attach to my ring. I will have 2 wedding bands though. I’ll have my engagement ring and matching band and solder them together, then I will just have a plain gold band to wear for work (soon to be nurse) and when I don’t want to wear my set.

Are you kidding? I love more than one ring! My DH doesn’t care as long as I wear one with a wedding band. He knows I’m his just as I know he’s mine even if he forgets his wedding band. He knows I have crazy taste and I love, love, love, love jewelry. It’s a way to express yourself. Everyone is always looking at my hands when I work so I like that I can mix it up.

Go with what you want and wear what you want ๐Ÿ™‚ Start a new tradition!

I am seriously looking into getting a second ering, because mine DEFINITELY cannot withstand 24/7 wear. I love it and it’s my favorite, but I hate not being able to wear it almost ever. I can’t wear it to work, I don’t like wearing it on trips because I can’t sleep in it, and I also can’t wear my wedding band with it anymore because I think that may have caused a diamond to come loose and eventually fall off the side of my ering.

I’m looking into getting another amethyst and diamond ring that can withstand more wear and tear. I also have a diamond from my mom that I have to set at some point but I would honestly rather get something closer to my actual ering. So right now I’m debating whether to have a custom setting made for this pear diamond I have, or getting a whole new amethyst ring.

But first I have to get the diamond insured, GIA graded, etc. I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately and I really don’t know which option I want to do, but I definitely almost NEED a second ering that I can actually wear. DH already agreed to pay half, and I will pay the rest out of my savings. So I’m really not sure what option to go with, but I have been thinking about it a lot lately, especially since my ering lost a diamond recently.

I absolutely love the idea of having more erings to switch between, I looove jewelry and especially rings!

But how does it work? I mean does it count as an ering if you buy it for yourself? Or does your husband have to buy it and put it on your finger?

I have 3 sets at the moment, with a 4th being made.  Who can choose just one, lol.  And they all get worn in rotation, so less wear and tear on all of them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have four, they’re all sterling silver and cz!  I knew I could never choose just one style to spend thousands on, so instead I buy new ones anytime I see something I like.  An Asscher cut solitaire (the one he proposed with), a Tacori 3-stone princess cut, a Tacori cushion cut halo and a custom made cushion cut double halo!  I love having the option to wear whichever I want based on my mood or outfit!  I want some colored stones as well!  I say life is too short to have to choose just one ring to wear everyday ๐Ÿ™‚

I know this is an old thread, but I’ll post anyway. I don’t see anything wrong with multiple engagement rings. My husband never actually gave me an engagement ring because we were both kind of broke at the time and had other priorities (I.e. kids, car payments, mortgage and getting over divorces). So, when we got married I got my beautiful wedding band. But, it wasn’t until our 4th year of marriage that we could actually afford jewelry, so I got a ring. But, after getting a custom band for my husband with black diamonds in it, I fell in love with black diamonds and got the approval to also get a black diamond ring. So, between my D diamond, black diamond and morganite, I have three different rings that I am constantly switching depending on my mood or the occasion.

This is what I did too. I have a tanzanite e ring that I love and was custom made, but it is too bulky to wear with my wedding band on a regular basis. So I just got a 1 ct moissanite to wear on a daily basis ๐Ÿ™‚

At this point, I do have a ring for every day of the week, lol.

Between being a stacker girl, receiving several a-bands for different years, and having inherited some, as well, I just wear whatever whenever and enjoy the variety. My hubs is fine with it; we just want my finger to look married.

Bling!

And mrsdanish, I see your point about “what constitutes an e-ring?” when he didn’t give it to you as a symbol of the engagement.

I happen to have two e-rings (both a-bands, since I wanted that style) one that is a CZ replica of the original that he gave me and the other is the one that we upgraded the original for.

I’ve also been given a 3-stone for an anniversary which it’s typically viewed as an “and/or” ring (e-ring or a-band) so I don’t necessarily correct people if they say what a pretty e-ring I have. I also have a few “solitaire” or “center stone with accents” style rings that stack well and they are often mistaken for e-rings.  (Again, if I don’t feel like chatting, I don’t correct people; I just say thanks.)

So how many e-rings do I have? Technically two (I do count the replica, since I bought it as a reminder of the original) but it’s hard not to refer to the others as e-rings since they are e-ring style rings.

fwiw

My Fiance got me two engagement rings – one is a sapphire and the other is an emerald with moissanite sidestones.
