(Closed) Ooops – Should I "Throw" My E-Ring Overboard?

posted 9 years ago in Rings
  • poll: What to do about an E-Ring I hate, with a wedding band that doesn't match?

    Wear Tungsten ring on left hand, E-ring on Right hand.

    Keep Tungsten wedding band for activities, find sparkly one for work/dress up.

    Ditch Tungsten, buy a wedding band I like to match my e-ring.

    Keep Tungsten for activites, but buy a wedding ring (not band) FH and I like.

    Don’t throw it overboard, that seems so wasteful and weird.  But get a wedding band that matches, for sure!  You don’t have to wear the tungsten just because you won it.  And if he is okay with the heirloom ring, and you like it, go for it!

    B is my fav option. C or D are fine too.

    D is wasteful!  I say buy a lovely ring that doubles as a wedding band, like a 3 stone ring.

    Use your heirloom ring, have him surprise you with a new band, and use the tungsten for camping.  

    Do not throw the old ring overboard– sell it or save it for something.

    This isn’t on the poll, but I would sell the Tungsten band and put that money towards a new set.

    i would keep the tungsten for camping/sports and either get a sparkly ring you like as your wedding ring to either match this one or to go with your heirloom one if your Fiance likes the heirloon idea

    i wouldn’t throw the original out though (if you hate it that much, give it to me!)

    It’s a shame you didn’t buy a new ring as soon as he realised you didn’t like the e-ring.

    I don’t think you should throw it overboard – I think sell the e-ring and use either the heirloom ring or the tungsten one as your engagement ring and get a wedding ring to match them.

    Given that your ring is plated, I would just buy a new wedding set. Plated starling silver wil not hold up forever , and unless you actually like the tungsten band I wouldn’t use it.


    So I can’t vote for any option really, as if it were me I would use the heirloom diamond and get acomplete new set.
