so I took my wedding band and e-ring to the jewelry store to get welded together (it’s an enhancer ring and looks like one ring with both, basically)…
That was yesterday – and they’ll have it done, tonight! However…for the past 24 hours since I haven’t had it on…it feels SO weird/wrong NOT having my ring on!
Anyone else have to not wear their ring/band for any reason and know what I’m talking about?
Now I always take off my rings for showering/sleeping (sometimes I sleep in it but not always)…otherwise it’s on all the time – and I’ve worn my Engagement Ring for 2 years now!
I know it’s only another 8 hours til I get it back…but my hand feels so incredibly naked and “weird” without it on…

Yeah, we put ours in the safe on our honeymoon a lot.. we wished we would have had cheap plain silver bands to wear when we didn’t have our rings on.. and still might get some for the future. I’d rather not wear my ring to the gym, or the lake, or things like that – but don’t want to be w/o a ring..
Do you have another ring that you could put on for the day, just to make you feel better?

We’ve always kept ours on since the wedding. Of course, we didn’t need to have anything done afterwards, so there was no reason to take them off. I take off my engagement ring once I enter our apartment and put it back on before I leave. It’s big and I don’t like to get it dirty with cooking, cleaning, etc. But I need to wake up with my wedding band on 🙂

My e-ring has been off being repaired for almost a month now. I miss it so much. It just needs to be resized and also needs to have one of the prongs re-tipped. I was supposed to get it back last week, and I was *so* excited to finally have my ring back. …but then they ended up taking an extra week with it b/c the repair didn’t meet “quality assurance”, so they have to do it again. Now I’m supposed to get it back by the end of this week. I miss my ring and feel naked without it 🙁

I sent my engagement ring in a couple weeks ago to get sized and soldered together to my wedding bands. I knew that there would be NO way i would want to be withought it after i became a MRS. I got a call yesterday that the ring was done ahead of schedule and i went and picked it up. It’s so beautiful but i can’t wear it for another 18 days! I have a fake one on in place of it, because i feel naked without it.

We went to a waterpark and I left mine at home because I was scared of losing it. I want to get a cheap-o one to wear whenever I do that type of thing though so I can still wear a ring without worrying about damage.

I know that feeling. My job as an athlete I tend to bring it out during game time and theres someone always tapping me on the shoulder about it.lol other than that yes it feels weird without it. I guess at first it seemed as only a silly ring and people would hit on you still with the ring on but after the big day it becomes apart of you.

I have to get mine welded together too but I’ve been procrasinating for that reason. I hate not having my rings on! Obviously I have to get over it but it stinks!

I am still engaged, not married yet (for the next 2 weeks anyway), but I dropped my ring off to be re-rhodiumed (I think that’s how you spell it? It’s a platinum re-coating for white gold) over the weekend and I keep thinking I’ve lost it! So this morning I put another ring on that finger and it’s helped me stop freaking out. Plus I sort of don’t like to look single after a year of wearing my engagement ring on that finger. I like the feeling of having that ring there!

I wore an obnoxious fake (like 5 carats) cubic Mike bought me from Claire’s while mine was being resized. I thought it hilarious, but I hope no one was thinking “poor girl thinks her ring is real but it’s totally a cubic”.

I wear my Engagement Ring ALL the time so the few times I’ve taken it to the jeweler have felt SO weird to me!! I dont like that feeling 🙁

Oh gosh, I forget to put mine on in the morning at least a few times a month.
Does it feel weird? Yes. I get sort of panicky if I can’t remember if I left it at home or not but that’s always what has happened.
And twice we’ve had to take the band in. once for resizing the band and once for a split where they resized it.It felt weird even to just wear the one ring.

Mine is getting soddered together right now! I put on a plain ring that I had in my jewelry box just to have something there. It feels too weird otherwise!
