Does anyone have more than one wedding set or e-ring?
When Darling Husband got my e-ring, the store gave him two bands. The stone was set in one (the one I currently wear, and love) but they gave him another band in case I didn’t like this one. Its a plain but classic white gold band, and has sat in a drawer for 2 years.
When my grandmother passed away, I bought a right hand ring that is blue and white diamonds and I wear it every day, I LOVE it. My grandfather passed away this summer and I was thinking of getting a stone to put into that band. The problem is, its very much an “engagement style” ring. I would probably get a blue sapphire, and a different shape stone from the one I have.
But part of me thinks that’s a bit weird, to have 2 wedding sets (if I got a 2nd band to match) or 2 e-rings. I don’t wear necklaces, won’t wear more than 1 RHR (and won’t take my grandma’s off), and have a few nice bracelets that I only wear on special occasions. I am not a big jewelery wearer but would really like to buy something nice in memory of my grandfather, who was very speical to me, and have always wanted to put a stone in that band. But, I also think it kind of takes away from how special the e-ring is that I wear every day.
Bees, any suggestions?

if that’s what you want, then you do it. it’s totally up to you.
i love jewellery and i wouldn’t think twice about having different sets/rings to wear.
if you will wear them then it’s a no brainer for me.

I have my white gold set that i wear normally, and sometimes i wwear a yellow gold diamond band if I have more gold than silver jewelry on! I plan on buying a few more different styles to suit whatever I am wearing. Hubby doesnt mind, because I MOSTLY wear my original, and I change them out before bed too.

Zero weirdness. I have my original e-ring with a very dainty band that I wear and for the longest time I had an extra band to wear when I didn’t wanna wear the e-ring, but never used it actually. So for our 4th anniversary I got a beautiful 3 stone ring that I wear with that extra band, making two sets to switch between – most of the time I will wear on of the sets and the other e-ring as a RHR though.

I’m getting a second ering in yellow gold so I can switch up my look. If your Fiance is OK with it, go for it.

I (personally) wouldn’t wear different rings on my left hand in place of the wedding set that my husband picked for me. The Engagement Ring and wedding band are symbols of the loving relationship I have with him. A lot of women/couples feel quite differently than I do, and there’s nothing wrong with that! You probably want to run the idea past your Fiance to make sure he won’t have any objections or hurt feels if you switch it up sometimes.
I would have no problem wearing a remembrance set (solitaire & jeweled band style) that looked an awful lot like a wedding set on my right hand at the same time as my actual Engagement Ring & wedding band set on my left hand though.
I wouldn’t think there was anything wrong or weird with a friend or coworker switching out the set she wore on her left hand – but I might ask about it when I noticed. (as in “oh! Is that a different ring? It’s so pretty. I really like your other one too. Why the switch up?” But I’m nosy.)

If your FI’s cool with it, why not? There’s nothing weird about options.
