I am considering not wearing my e-ring after we are married. I know that most bees tend to stack their rings and I have ordered a sterling silver ring from Amazon, just to try the idea out and see if I like it but, what are everyone’s opinions on not wearing your e-ring after you are married?
I am also looking for everyone’s opinions on a wedding ring I saw online. I am probably not going to be wearing my e-ring so I figured, I could go a little flashier.
Also… sorry for the big picture.

I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do – I was debating just wearing a band on it’s own. But when I went to the jewellers and found what I’ve now chosen as my wedding ring, the two go so nicely together that I plan to wear both together.
That band isn’t to my taste personally, but I can see that it would look nice on it’s own.

I wear my engagement ring and wedding band. I love the way they look together and I absolutely adore my engagement ring and it means so much to mean that I can’t imagine putting it away in a drawer. But not everyone is as sentimental about thier ring as I am. It doesn’t really matter what others think about what you do with your engagement ring after the wedding.
I think the band you posted is pretty.

I had my rings soldered together and I wear it every single day (except now my hands are swollen as I’m 9 months pregnant so instead I wear them around my neck).
For me, it means so much to me to look down at the ring my hubby picked each and every day and be reminded of our love and what a great guy he is. Also…it’s not like it was cheap! I have no idea what your ring cost but I know if I was planning on not wearing my e-ring after marriage I probably would’ve told my husband ahead of time so he didn’t spend much (or got me something different altogether).

I wear both and sometimes I stack a different band with my ering just for fun. sometimes I do just the bands but most times its both rings.

I love that ring. It is so pretty.
I initially stacked my rings. Then, I got pregnant and got too puffy to wear them both together. At first I wore my band alone, then my narrower ering alone, then no ring. Then I had the baby and eventually could wear ering alone, then band alone. I can wear them both together again, but now I usually wear just the band unless I am dressing up to go out on a date or to a family gathering. Then I wear both. It is easier and more comfortable to wear just the band (especially when changing diapers etc.), but I know my husband spent a lot of time and money to get me my beautiful ering, so I like to show it off sometimes too.

I picked out my own ring. He didn’t care as long as it wasn’t a halo or anything too flashy. We also paid for it together (split 50/50) and it wasn’t very very expensive but, it is nice. I actually posted about it on this board before. It is very very thin (not as expected from the pictures) and that’s why I am going to try it on with another thin band to see if it helps bulk out the ring and protect it.
The ring was more for show than anything. Neither of us are super attached to it and it’s not something sentimental. But, we’re also having an elopement/civil ceremony so, for us the whole to-do about everything isn’t that big of a deal either.

jellybeanjean : I have 5 different rings I trade out depending on the day and what I’m doing. I always wear my engraved rose gold wedding band, and then I switch out my e-ring and a yellow gold spacer, and an 11 stone turquoise band and a 7 stone blue sapphire band. I am not comfortable wearing my big e-ring to work because I get dirty and there is always a possiblity that I might have to dig in the dirt or do something crazy and I don’t want to hurt my preeeeeecious. The only ring it is always important for me to wear is my simple wedding band. But I love changing out other blingy bands with it! I would say the ring you chose is beautiful, but will you want to always have it on?

There’s nothing wrong with just wearing your wedding ring if that’s what you want to do. Both my husband’s married sisters do just that.
Until we got my wedding ring yesterday I only wore my engagement ring unless I had to do something physical and then I went and wore just my skinny tungsten band 🙂 I prefer to wear 2 to 3 bands but you don’t have to if you don’t want to. Definitely no rules on how many rings you have to wear 🙂

You didn’t include an option that fits me, I only wear my e-ring and no band.

You can always wear the wedding band on the left hand and switch the engagement ring to the right if you don’t care for them together.
Personally, I always wear my engagement ring. I have a sentimental attachment to it and enjoy wearing it. There is no law that says you have to wear it, of course. Do what makes you happy.

I only wear my wedding band 95% of the time. I teach yoga and I’m very hard on my hands, plus I’m a mom. I found, for myself, that my e ring was too pokey and scratchy, changing diapers and that kind of thing. I made sure to purchase a band I was happy to wear on its own (the Blue Nile version of the platinum Etoile ring) and it’s so comfy I barely notice I have it on. It fits my lifestyle perfectly. It just depends on your individual circumstance 🙂 I like the ring above as well, it’s very pretty!

I only plan on wearing my band once married. To be honest I find rings with stones incredibly annoying. I work with animals so my e-ring is always getting in the way. I usually dont even wear my e-ring at work and would actually love to never wear it. However, my engagement is relatively short. Exactly one year to the day – so I figured i could be annoyed for a year.

This is my opinion and I mean no disrespect but I don’t see the point of buying any ring, engagement or not, if I won’t wear it. So I wear both me ering and wedding band.

I usually wear both, but I also dont like how my wedding band looks alone. That said, I have a few other rings that I will wear instead if I dont feel like wearing my set.
