    tbenjamin4884:  I personally would not be able to part with my wedding band once I finally get to wear it but that’s just me. Your band is very similar to mine though and I love the look. The ring doesn’t look bad with or without the band though, so I voted indifferent. Here is mine!

    A solitaire without a wedding band reads engaged not married and will likely be perceived as such by outsiders who do not know your relationship status.  Wearing my wedding band is important to me and I was so excited to finally get to wear my complete set.  I would never give it up.

    I would keep your wedding band for a number of reasons and, instead of buying diamond studs, I would get some beautiful CZ studs.

    Totally your call. You know you are married.  I usually wear my solid band solitaire and shared prong as a set but sometimes wear the engagement ring on my right hand and original wedding band on the left. I know women who wear a combination wedding ring-engagement ring and others who rarely wear their ring at all. Plenty of men don’t wear one at all. It’s your hand.

    Your band is so pretty with your ring and honestly, has such sentiment. I wouldn’t trade it! You can get cz or moissy earring studs!

    My original ring was a Tiffany style solitaire (1ct radiant cut diamond) with a plain white gold wedding band. I wanted them because they were Classic and would never go out of style. I never wore them together, I just didn’t like the look. I liked the solitaire alone just fine, but in the end I wanted a set with more bling!

    Honestly, do what you want – it doesn’t matter whether people who look at your finger think you’re engaged or married.

    Do you currently wear them together? Maybe you can wear tour solitaire by itself for a few weeks and just keep the band at home, giving you a chance to decide if you really like it by itself?

    I know some women who only wear one ring that by sight looks like an engagment ring. There’s no reason why you can’t. Do what you want to do. I like sensoda‘s suggestion of trying it out for a few weeks before committing to giving up your wedding band.

    tbenjamin4884 :  Thank you!  It’s a round diamond with four prongs.  The angle is a little misleading.

    I went for a massage earlier this week and my therapist was telling me how she got a giant upgrade for her anniversary and only wears the engagement ring. Who TF cares if people think youre only engaged and not married? YOU know you’re still married.

    I definitely have a sentimental attachment to my wedding band. I got my e-ring after we had been married for several months, and I switch it up with several stackers. But I’m always wearing my wedding band. I say to each their own though. If you love your ring the most without any other bands, then go for it!
