isabelwedd :  very pretty!

A band will look like you’re married already. I don’t know if you care, or if it bothers you. One thing you might do is wear the engagement ring, then the eternity band. The ‘proper’ way to wear rings is to have the band on the finger first (closest to the heart), and e-ring after. If you wear the e-ring first then band it should be ok, because you’re not symbolizing you’re married (I’m not sure how many people would know the ‘rules’, or even care)

Heres what I mean – wear the eternity band after the e-ring. Then when you get married the band would go on first  

of course – you can do whatever you want! No one will arrest you for breaking wedding band rules! The more rings the better as far as I am concerned

That seems excessive to me, not to be mean. It would diminish the significance of your wedding rings IMO. Why not get a nice sparkly RHR instead?

If I were you i’d just enjoy wearing your engagement ring by it’s self until your wedding.  I think you would look like you are married if you wear an eternity type of ring prior to your wedding.  But your decision I guess.  I don’t think anyone will really care……  No offense.

Stunning ring! So hard to wait but it will be here before you know it and in the mean time you can do lots of research into which bands will look the best :).

isabelwedd :  you know what would be a cute idea? I narrow eternity band in your fiance’s birthstone as a spacer ring for between you engagement ring and wedding band. I had considered it briefly but my fiance’s birthstone is opal and the only opal ring I could find for a price I’d be willing to pay for something that I know would last (opal is fragile) doesn’t come in my size and it not sizable 😳

Do what you want, It’s your finger(s)! In your case I think you should just get a sparkly rhr and wait out the stacking bands for wedding/annv/etc 

I personally wear my inherited antique gmas wedding band on *that finger* sometimes and honestly idgaf if anyone thinks I’m married already or not. (2018 can’t come soon enough lol) I wear it because it’s sentimental and it looks great for low key ring wearing when I don’t want to wear the solitaire.

isabelwedd :  I wear a 2mm half eternity as a lone RHR and stack it RHR with a yellow gold rope band too. Sometimes I love the simple elegance with it as a lone RHR diamond sparkle and sometimes I like the fun stack.

I was planning to get a thin eternity band to wear with my set so I bought a Berricle band to play around with. And then I liked it so much that I wore it a lot of the time. My Fiance encouraged me to take it off so it wouldn’t diminish the experience of receiving my real wedding bands and I enjoyed wearing just my ering again for a while. But wearing another band didn’t in any way confuse me about the difference between a ring I received during a sacred ceremony and the ring I ordered to wear as a tester and for fun.
