I don’t think I personally know anyone who has done this before, but I don’t think it’s a bad idea. Maybe you could sell it to your fiance by suggesting you get a more affordable band that you can wear on its own sometimes? If your ring feels big to you, there might be times when you want that option anyway!

Also, if you post a pic of your e-ring some bees might have suggestions about more affordable rings that might go/fit with it.

I dont see why you have to have a band, especially since its a 3 stone ring. I say just wear the one ring. So…pics please! ๐Ÿ™‚

I know lots of women who only wear one ring…and I have no idea if it was an e-ring or is their band.  Some have single stones, some are wide, mostly I don’t notice.

I’ve thought about doing this too! I love my Engagement Ring and love things that are simple. I’ve tried on multiple styles of wedding bands with the ring but honestly don’t like any of them and feel it takes away from the e-ring. My mom and Fiance really want me to get one, though. I’m thinking of getting a band with gemstones on it (maybe citrine since orange is my favorite color?) so it’s something different, and maybe even wearing it on a different finger or switching them out.

I’ll be skipping the wedding band. I have a halo that is set low, and also has a thicker style band. I would have to get something custom for it, and I feel like it would take away from the beauty of my e-ring.
A lot of people already think it’s my wedding ring, so I think I’ll be okay.

I agree that u should maybe get a band so you can wear it on its own I know sometimes wearing a big ring can get in the way in certain activities so its nice to have a band and be able to switch it up once in awhile

I just have an engagement ring, no wedding band for similar reasons. It’s kind of funny shaped and gold is so darn expensive ๐Ÿ™‚ I suppose some people might question if we’re engaged or married, but I haven’t had any issues so far ๐Ÿ™‚

My sister never had a wedding band and her ring looks beautiful on its own! I see no reason for it if you don’t want it ๐Ÿ™‚

I was considering this since I love my e-ring as it is on my finger and can’t imagine stacking another ring with it. The only reason I decided against it was the stronger desire to have a matching wedding band as Fiance. Otherwise, I don’t see any issue with it whatsoever. I’ve seen married women with only one ring on that finger that could have been either type of band.

Most of the women in my family only wear their engagement rings. My mom only wears her engagement ring, and it looks wonderful! All my life, I’ve never even thought twice about it!

For me, I would probably end up only wearing my wedding band and saving my engagement ring for special occasions. Maybe you could tell your fiance that other women wear only their wedding band, so it’s not a big deal for you to only wear your engagement ring (as plenty of women do so).

The cool thing about getting married, NOW is there are sooo many options.

You can wear just an E-Ring

An E-Ring & W-Band

An E-Ring on one hand, a W-Band on the other

Buy several rings, and wear them however you please, etc.

I too have a pretty wide band (about 5 mm)… and it is quite glittery.  BUT I am a girl who has to have a W-Band (traditional sentiment)… so for me, I found me a nice sparkly W-Band (2 mm) that coordinates well with my E-Ring

I think a good deal of the time I’ll wear them as a set on my left hand.

BUT there will probably be times when it’ll be just my Diamond W-Band (leaving my E-Ring locked up in our Safety Deposit Box or Hotel Safe) … and I’ve also decided to get a plain W-Band (also 2 mm) that I can wear alone, or with the other W-Band (like the stacked ring trend right now).  OR even put all 3 on one finger sometimes.

Lots of options… something for every day of the year… be it a blinging occasion, or not.  (Wearing the Plain W-Band alone will be good for things like doing Home Renovations, Household Cleaning, Travelling to 3rd World Countries, or Scuba Diving etc)

I LOVE the fact that I have soooo many options

Lol, infact I told Mr TTR I might need to find me a non-diamond gemstone stacking ring in the future for a Wedding Anniversary
