I got 2 different e-rings before the proposal, but neither worked out, so we returned them both. Then, the ring he proposed to me with fell apart after less than a week (the stones in the halo started falling out like crazy), so we got a solitaire as my “official” e-ring. I kept the first though, because it was the one he proposed with. 🙂
When we talked about his wedding band, it became clear that he would need to get a Tungsten, due to his work a gold band wouldn’t last long. So he picked out the band he liked and I have chosen a new ring to wear as my wedding ring, one that matches the blue and silver look of his band and that is a little more fancy than my e-ring (that was in yellow gold).
So, I guess I will have had a total of 5 rings after all is said and done, but I have only ever worn one at any time.

I agree, I really don’t like that term ether. There’s a presenter on QVC who uses it all the time when showing jewelery..it drives me nuts!

I’m rough on jewelry so I have my nice wedding set, diamonds in the wedding band and a raised diamond in my e-ring, that gets caught on everything. I have a simple band that we bought a few months after the wedding so I wouldn’t ruin my wedding set by wearing it everyday.

@soontobemrsm11: my third is for after a year of marriage! An eternity ring I think? It used to be given after 10yrs, but it’s more commonly given now days after a year.

I am going to have 3 rings- an engagement ring and 2 wedding bands. It was my FI’s idea, and I love the symmetry. that’s really all the reason we have 🙂

For me the tradition of exactly two rings:
One diamond and precious metal engagement ring, that is usually worn but may be taken off at times,
One precious metal wedding band that virtually never comes off,
…is a really important tradition I will be following.
To me, these are the clearest physical symbols of marriage. When they start to be adjusted as if they are fashion or status items or cocktail rings I feel they lose symbolism. I figure that I have 9 other fingers to be fashionable and fun with! But I want it to be clear that I take my marriage very seriously… no messing around with that!

I like this. I think it’s easy to forget that they’re not a fashion statement. I like the idea of another ring if it has significant meaning (10 year anniversary for example) but I’m not sold as to whether I would actually wear this WITH my other rings.

Are these on your right hand? Or is the photo just backwards?

It will seem like I have three because I have my engagement ring, and since it is a solitaire, I wanted a wrap to go with it.

I’ll be wearing just a band, and the e-ring on my right hand on special occasions, which I may interchange with RHRs. I agree with @joya_aspera to an extent – I feel that way about a wedding ring, but I almost certainly won’t wear my e-ring daily, as my interests like karate and rock climbing don’t mesh well with it 😛 The band is really thick and solid, and doesn’t match my e-ring at all. Moreover they wouldn’t even both physically fit on the same finger.

My ering is a split shank so it looks like 2 bands already and the wedding band is an “enhancer” so a ring on each side basically. there is nothing really special about having 2 bands, i just loved how it looks with my ering. makes it look symtrical and tons of sparkle. My Fiance says the whole set ering and wedding bands are me. lol
blue diamonds and marquise diamonds
princess cut center diamond, rest are rounds
and together they make this……

I have two wedding bands technically. I initially chose a semi eternity band but on further thought decided I wanted one I’d never have to take off so my then fiancé got me a platinum band. When our bands came in, we didn’t have a date set and thought we would have a long ways to go till we got married but he said he didn’t need A piece of paper and that to him I was already his wife so we began wearing our bands. The eternity band was the band he placed on my finger then. I got the plain band later. Well, this last December we made it legal and I opted to have him place the plain band on my finger during the wedding. That is the one I always wear now, most of the time with my e-ring, but both bands are special to me and I sometimes wear all three.

I wanted two bands so that it was symmetrical and because I think multiple thin bands look really pretty together (: Super glittery and they make me happy.

I’ll have my e-ring and wedding band. Eventually, I’d like a sapphire band for an anniversary, but no more than that!
