mshelena:  i dont have a pic but I have seen women custom-made wedding bands to follow the contour of their e-rings. Others opted to transfee their e-rings on their right hand adter the wedding. 

I love your ring ❤️

mshelena:  it’s all up to you. I switch it up. Some days, like when my hands are kind of swollen, I’ll wear just my ering. And I normally just wear my wedding band to work. But other than work and swollen hands I wear them together. 

My sister, on the other hand, just wears her wedding band. She will only pull out her ering when it’s a special occasion, dinner out with her husband, that type of thing. Her wedding band is a rose gold band with milgrain and she has a 3 stone/ 3 halo ering. They don’t exactly go together but her plan was to always wear them separately anyways.

 

I hope that helps!

My mom wears her engagement ring solo — I don’t think she actually ever even bought a band, the e ring just acts as both the e ring and the band. it’s a simple platinum setting w round diamond 1 ct. I grew up seeing that my whole life and also just want to wear one ring rather than two also!

Yes, one ring. If I do get a band, it will be for travel, etc. It will be inexpensive.

A coworker of mine wears her beautiful, antique engagement ring solo because honestly a band wouldn’t look right with it. Do whatever you’re comfortable with.

One of my coworkers wears her e-ring (low profile, bezel set, chunky, bypass) on her right hand and her wedding band (plain band) on her left.

I always wear mine together because both of the bands are dainty, but I will say that I thought I would hate the look of the gap (my stone is a pear so I have a pretty substantial gap) but I’ve come to love it.

I opted out of a wedding band. The engagement ring is so beautifull delicate by its self, that look was lost with another band. I highly daoubt people think twice or that I am any less married.

Beautiful ring!  I had a coworker wear her upgrade/anniversary ring by itself; I thought the look was really classy. I will be wearing a wedding band with and without my ering simply for the fact I like the “married” look, and the wedding ring is really important and sentimental to me. 

Your ring can definitely be a solo piece, or you can move it to your right hand and wear your wedding band on your left. There are no rules and it’s totally up to you!

Your ring is beautiful! If you like it bt itself, I say weat it alone. You could also picl out a band that you would also like to wear ony as well of you like. I have not found a band I like with my e-ring, so I wear it solo, or I wear a stack of bands, or a band alone. Here is a photo of my ring that I wear solo.

I wear mine solo. There’s no band on earth that would look good with it.

I’m a little more traditional in that I’d prefer to wear a wedding band solo as opposed to an ER, but either way is fine. I sometimes wear my wedding band on my left ring finger and my ER on my right, just to highlight each one solo. People wear their rings so many different ways now that it is almost impossible to guess someone’s marital status by their rings anyway.

mshelena:  oh my word your ring is GORGEOUS! I sometimes wear my engagement ring solo, esp when I want to reminisce to the excitement and fond memories when I was still an engaged bee. Plus I feel it so stunning that my double bands steal some of the spotlight sometimes and I want all eyes on my ERing. Yours is such a beauty that I don’t think it needs anything else. Thanks so much for sharing it! <3

I’m not married yet, but I will not get another ring. I was lucky enough to get the ring of my dreams, and I don’t want any other ring distracting or taking away from it. 😄

My parents never wore any rings while they were married. My grandparents also don’t wear any wedding rings. So I never thought it was a big deal. It was important to my fiance to get me some thing special so who was I to say no? 😆
