A lot of women wear three rings because of symmetry. I’m seriously considering getting 2 wedding bands myself. It’s more about personal perference than anything.

Well, for me it’s pretty much symmetry. The look of three bands really appealed to me and I just love it. Plus my e ring is oddly shaped, so it made sense, and I like the idea of the engagement ring being “sealed in” as it were.

It’s mostly just preference.  More Bling! I like to call it.  My ring actually was bought as a set with the engagment ring and the two bands. I can’t wait to wear it all together!!

It’s a trend these days, but I’ve heard of girls getting the 3rd one as a push present so the 3 rings symbolize stages of your relationship with your SO: courtship, marriage, and parenthood.

Some women just want two bands. But also, some women get a third band on their one year, five year or ten year+ anniversary, for an anniversary band. Also men are known to give women a third ring for that finger when their first child is born.

@rebelle467: mine looks like 3 bands but it isn’t. It’s a wrap, which lots of my friends have too. Your e-ring sits inside of it and the two bands are actually attached eachother.

I had no idea myself what the 3 rings meant. Glad I stumbled upon this thread. That makes sense to me now. Maybe I will get an anniversary band for our 10 year anniversary since we aren’t planning on having children ever (if we do, it will be through adoption).

It is a trend right now, but I will be just getting 1 band on the wedding day so I’ll have a total of 2.

I personally love the stacked look. Stack ’em up I say! The days of everyone having to wear a solitaire and plain band are long gone.

it is one for engagement, one for marraige imo the third shouldn’t come until much later as this is an eternity ring.

I have three rings because my engagement ring is oddly shapped and the single wedidng band was just throwing off the whole look.  By adding one on the bottom and one on top, it looks more symmetrical.

@stokieGal: That sounds exactly how my husband approached my rings. I remember him telling that I only get one wedding band. He plans on an eternity band in the future.

@KatyElle: I love my solitare and plain wedding band. Plain wedding bands seem like a rarity these days. Just about everyone I know has a diamond studded wedding band.

@brox: I didn’t say solitaires and plain bands were ugly or anything, and if you love yours that’s great. I’m just saying the trends are changing. A few years ago the soliatire and plain band was standard, now stack rings and eternity style are becoming the standard. So please don’t take it as a put-down.

I like how it looks. I only have one right now but I’m getting a matching band for the other side. I get it as a one year anniversary present 🙂
