    Engagement Ring.  I’m not sentimental about them and that the wedding band was used in the ceremony.  From a practical point of view, the wedding band was the cheaper one and we could easily afford to change that around.  The e-ring was probably about 9-10x the band, so it’s not going anywhere.

    I love both, although I put more importance on my wedding band. It means the world to me that I found the love of my life at this age and stage in time. It’s a simple white gold band. I seldom take off my rings, but I never take off my wedding band. It’s part of me. Smile

    We decided not even to have e-rings.  From our perspective, the engagement was a promise of marriage, and marriage was the important part.

    I would consider them both equally important.

    Both. My wedding band is obviously a strong symbol of the commitment we made to each other as husband and wife, but my e-ring is also a symbol of his commitment and promise to love me forever and all that mushy stuff.

    In terms of physical importance, my e-ring cost 11 times more than my wedding band so that one obviously has more monetary significance to me.

    @Scintillante:  Engagement ring, definitely. I am going to have to pick a band out that goes with it.. not the other way around. Haven’t bought either yet, but the band will likely be 7-8 times cheaper than the engagement ring.

    Wedding ring. Even though it will be significantly cheaper & much less ornate as a plain platinum band, it will signify something infinitely more valuable than money– and that’s our love & comittment.   And, for me, nothing means more than that than a simple wedding band. Just my romanticized view. lol

    ETA: I picked the design of my e-ring based on what I wanted my wedding band to be.  I know most people choose the e-ring first and not the way I did it.
