I’m one of those too!  I don’t really like wearing two bands..when I was married before, I had a medium width plat. band with the solitaire in the center and baguettes around the band..no wedding band per se.

It’s up to you.  Most single guys "get the message" when they see ANY ring on the ring finger of the left hand and most people also figure out you’re either engaged or married..either one is a serious committment imho.

Btw, I won’t be wearing two rings either now.  I want a slightly wider plat band and will wear the solitaire w/the two baguettes on either side..And my sister has a gorgeous e ring and doesn’t wear a wedding band either.  We’re wierd like that..but our preference!

I think you should do whatever you want!  The "rules" are meant to be broken!  That ring is gorgeous by the way!

If you DO want a wedding band to wear with that ring, most jewelers could make you one that sits snug with the ring, and has the same wave shape to it, but it’s totally up to you.  I think it’s honestly fine to just wear one ring!

I actually know some people who wear the one ring…I say go for it!  And I’m sure your SO will like that he doesn’t have to buy you two different rings.

My ring from my first marriage was in the same shape as yours.  We picked it out and didn’t think about the band later.  If we wanted a band to go next to it, we would have had to design it.  So, in the end I only wore one ring during that marriage.  there’s nothing wrong with that, especially if you’re more comfortable with it.

Go for it! I’m not getting a wedding band either. I absolutely love my engagement ring & have tried on bands with it, but I feel that they all take away from the look of the ring. It’s just more money to spend too!

My cousin has an e-ring like this with an interlocking wedding band that curves opposite from the e-band. It actually looks like one ring and is really beautiful! Just something to think about.

I have a friend who only wears her e-ring as her wedding ring, no big deal. Nowadays you never know b/c they interlock together and do all kinds of nifty things

Somebody asked me recently how long i’d been married….they were surprised my e-ring wasn’t my actual wedding ring!

As long as it works for you! I woulodn’t even know what kind of ring would go with that anwyays…it looks lovely as it is!

I watch for wedding band engagement ring combinations all the time, it’s so interesting to see all the different types and styles.  Maybe because it really tells a lot about not only the person, but also their relationship.

Often times, I find wedding band only to be the most interesting; there are so many styles (simple to delicate with pave diamonds).  Wedding band only is also good for everyday use; while the engagement ring is sometimes reserved for going out or just to have some variety. 

Of course, what you decide to do is a very personal decision.  While it’s possible that some will question if you keep switching, you know switching doesn’t change your relationship.  If you want to give it a try, it’s important to talk about it with your SO first and get their take.

Engagement rings and wedding bands are special and often protected because of what they symbolize, but they can also be a fun expression of who you are!

I think the ring you showed is beautiful and stunning.  I would not get a wedding ring to go with it.  it would totally ruin the look of the ring.  I think the trend now is to just wear one ring.  The 2 ring thing is actually an American tradition.  In Europe and lots of other cultures, they just wear one.  Just something to think about. 

Gorgeous ring!
