I’m wondering what you bees give more importance to: the e-ring or the wedding ring?
I often read comments like: “this band overpowers the e-ring” or “this band stands well on its own”, etc.
I do give as much importance to my wedding band as my e-ring. They were almost the same price too. I wanted them to be complementary but also to stand out on their own when worn together. That’s why I left all the bling to my wedding band and left my e-ring shank a clean, shiny metal finish.
Which is more important for you? Or perhaps it’s both equally? Share pics of your e-ring and wedding band please! 🙂

Wedding ring I can switch my e-ring a million times but I will only have one ring he put on my finger when we said “I do”

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.

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.

I know that commonly, the e-ring is way more expensive than the wedding band, so it’s interesting that some feel a less expensive ring as a wedding band would be more important, more “valuable”
When I just got engaged, I gave more importance to the e-ring and either wanted to skip out on the wedding band or find a tiny 1mm band. With more searching and with more getting used to the idea of getting married, I now love wedding bands and want them to stand out.
Love hearing your opinions!!
