I have 2 WBands… one Plain & one Sparkly
Both were used during the Wedding Ceremony.
After we got my ERing, I wasn’t sure what I wanted for a WBand, I went back and forth between a Plain & Sparkly Ring. All I did know that as an Encore it had to be something distinctly different than what I did for my First Marriage (they were an interlocking Bridal Set in Yellow Gold)
Lifewise Mr TTR was set in his ideas too…
He didn’t want a WBand. He just isn’t a Jewellery type of guy. And at 60+ years old and an Encore, I knew I wasn’t going to change his mind.
It was when we went WBand Shoppping that it hit me…
We’d get them both. The Sparkly would represent me, the Plain would represent him. During the Wedding Ceremony both were used & blessed… this was important to me as I wanted to know that no matter which I was wearing that it was a TRUE WBand for us.
In the Ceremony I placed the plain ring on his finger (well up to the knuckle) and said my Vow. When he said his Vow to me, he placed BOTH rings onto my finger together.
And so I wear them both… sometimes together like I did on our Wedding Day (a stack of 3). And at other times, I mix n match em… 1, 2, 3 at a time… different configurations, different fingers etc.
Lots of possibilities… and one of my fave is the 2 WBands together (as they both Match, in style having come from Peoples Canada / Zales USA)
Another reason that I really really love having a Plain WBand tho is that I NEVER have to go without. No matter what I am doing, I can wear a WBand. I take my Sparklies off sometimes to keep them safe from harm (and occasionally all my rings)
ie: Home Renovations – Painting – Gardening – Deep Cleaning – Cooking / Baking where I “knead” to get my hands dirty – for the gym – some water sports (snorkelling – scuba etc) – and when we travel to “sketchy” areas I either lock them up in the Hotel Room / Ship Cabin Safe, or just leave them at home to begin with in our Bank’s Safety Deposit Box
I have to say that it was WBee that inspired me also to even consider a “ring stack”… and I am sooo happy that I made this choice. Something I had not even considered before coming to this website. Lol, now I am seriously thinking that I’d like to add more narrow straight edged bands to my collection as the years go on so I have even more options… needless to say, I really like the look.
Hope this helps,
