I have an engagement ring made of petrified wood and now the time has come for my actual wedding ring.
Does the wedding ring have to be a band? We are looking at a beautiful pear-cut single stone ring and my heart says this is the one. A simple band could be added to the bottom of it but I’m wondering if it would be acceptable to have a wedding ring with a larger stone that is separate and unrelated to the engagement ring?
i appreciate all helpful thoughts and opinions!

@nicki8033: Your wedding ring is just that…it’s YOURS! It can be whatever you want it to be! I am actually just using my engagement ring as my wedding ring also. You could use a string for your wedding ring if you really wanted…as long as you’re happy with it, that is all that matters!

@nicki8033: It’s your finger and you can do whatever you wish. I’ve seen all kinds of rings and combinations since joining the Bee. I’d love to see a picture of your petrified wood ring.

Absolutely! Some people wear just one ring or none at all- doesn’t make them any less married! Since this ring is calling to you, you should get it!

Your wedding band can be anything you want! I personally prefer the band look, but that’s just me 🙂

I’m not getting a wedding band; I’m using my e-ring AS my wedding ring. Go for whatever you love and whatever is the most meaningful symbol of your marriage 🙂

I had 2 bands for 3 years until my DH surprised me with an emerald-cut diamond solitaire. I love them both and find that the bands are more diverse!

Wow, thank you all SO MUCH for the support! I was actually expecting some negativity about it being ‘improper’ but I guess that is just my own insecurity. Thank you all again, I will follow my heart!

@nicki8033: Hi! I’ve been considering doing the same thing so you’re definately not alone on this one:) The problem is I like both the stone (sapphire to be exact) and band which would also be a sapphire/diamond combo. Oh decisions, decisions…
I think everyone is right though. Do what’s best for you and what will make you happy.
