    @2dBride I see where you’re coming from, but the “need” for an engagement ring is as a symbol of agreeing to get married and announcing it to the world, which is a big life milestone! Especially if you are having a long engagement. I don’t think the decision to wear one should be viewed as frivolous or unnecessary, because, well, all rings are unnecessary! And I say this as someone whose e-ring is of VERY little actual monetary value (like less than $100). Yes, engagement rings are fraught with patriarchal baggage and whatnot, but having considered my personal values carefully, I picked one that meshed with them, and I am happy to wear it and happy to be tangibly reminded of my relationship when I look at it, so that, for me, is the “necessity.”

    @This Time Round:  I was just going back over my messages here – and noticed I didn’t tell you how much I love the look of your rings! Yeesh,  I’m still trying to get used to this site and I don’t think I get all of my “new message” alerts ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m all for symmetry, so we’re in the process of designing two identical bands, to go on either side of my cathedral marquise solitaire.  This is the inspiration:

    So that I end up with something that looks like this:

    @This Time Round:  I was told by a jeweler this past weekend that a solitaire “enhancer” is one ring that adds side stones to a tiffany-set solitaire.  A solitaire “guard” is a ring that the solitaire fits down in, much like

    Smile you can never have enough rings! I wear a yellow gold round brilliant engagement ring,gold diamond wedding band and another very small thin rose gold diamond wedding band on my left hand finger. They all sit flush.  DH just bought me a platinum tiffany solitare for Valentines’s the right hand. It’s still being sized, can’t wait to wear it. Love, love, Love jewelry and gems and mixing the metals too!

    I’m not sure how many I’ll be going with yet, but I get the idea of 3, so that it’s symmetrical. But with my band (it’s not a straight band, it’s got angles to it) I’m not sure which would look best. If I had a straight band I’d just do two bands… ering then wedding band over it, to seal in the promise ๐Ÿ™‚

    The only acceptable reason to have 2 bands is a significnat anniversary (1, 2, 5 are not “significnat enough”) or a push present. But other than that… it just yeah- No. Of couse, this is my own opinion.

    @vmec:  Thats not a bad idea when you’re young… However, some of us will never ever ever again reproduce, so the whole “push” (yuck) present is out, and some of us hope to be around for a silver anniversary, but who wants to take that chance?!

    @Mrs Canuck:  I’m expressing general dislike for 2 bands EXCEPT under listed conditions I don’t get the idea of just “getting them” (as suggested “because you don’t want to take that chance”).

    @Mrs Canuck: on this one.

    I am well over 50, and my YOUTHFUL Groom well over 60.

    In 5, 10, or 20 years, there is a good chance that one / or both of of us won’t be here !!

    A 25th Silver Wedding Anniversary even more unlikely (he’d be well over 90).

    So sometimes living life today, and celebrating your LOVE in the moment, is reason enough “just to get them”

    My Fiance was kind enough to present me with two engagement rings. Yes, two. He didn’t have to but he did. Now for me, does having two engagement rings somehow diminish the symbolism they embody? Certainly not. It simply means that I’m incredibly fortunate to have two material token that mark our engagement.
