Yep! I had to give up my e-ring for a month to have my wedding band fitted to it. I hated it! I wasn’t nearly as fun being engaged without a ring lol.

OMG I totally feel naked without my e-ring. I have actually left home and then turned around to go get it when I realized I forgot to put it on. I usually take it off as soon as I walk in the front door at home and if not then, before I go to bed. It is also not allowed to touch dishwater LOL. Luckily my Fiance knew what my ringsize is and I didn’t have to have it sized.

@chocolatemalt – I know what you mean about feeling like it’s lost! Sometimes I forget I took it off because it’s a force of habit now. I look down at my hand and freak out! Then I remember that I put it away, lol.

I’m currently looking to buy a super cheap fake ring for this very reason.  We’re going on a canoe trip in a couple weeks and I would really like to just leave my ring at home; however I know it’ll bug me not having it on.  I check it about a million times a day, so I think having a stand in would be helpful.  Especially if it’s one I didn’t care about losing.

I couldn’t wear my e-ring for a few days because one of the prongs went loose and it drove me crazy!  I kept having little heart attacks because I have a tendency to flick the back of my ring with my thumb when I’m bored and it wasn’t there!  I finally dug a cheapie ring out of my jewelry box so that I’d have something to wear.  My e-ring needs to be resized, but we’re just going to wait until after the wedding because I don’t want to go without before the big day.

When I had to get my e-ring sized it took two hours. I kept thinking it had fallen off in the store I was browsing! Hehe, it started to drive my mom nuts as I was meant to be shopping for stuff with her!

For our honeymoon I opted to just bring down my band and leave my engagement ring at home in our safe.  I wasn’t entirely secure leaving it in the resort’s safe in the room.  Just couldn’t trust it.  It was weird the entire trip not having it on.   I too will be getting my rings soldered together but not sure when.  I have bought a nice fake  CZ ring to wear during this time and whenever I send my ring to get the rhodium plating done.

I took mine off to sleep, cook, and shower so i was used to not wearing them.  Now, the humidity has swollem my fingers so much i can’t even get the damn things on. So I have been without any rings for the past 2 weeks.  So far, no one has noticed, or at least said anything about it.  But I’m hoping to get a cheap replacement until I can put mine back on…

I honestly never take mine off.  I keep it on while sleeping, showering, cooking, the pool, the gym etc.  I did have to once take it in to get resized a long time ago and I hated it.  I see no reason to take it off.
