(Closed) Would you assume a woman wearing a three stone alone is married or engaged?

I assume a woman is engaged if she isn’t sporting a wedding band. I hear you on liking e-rings by themselves, but it was important to me that people could tell I was married just by looking at me so I got a band. If it’s also important to you then go wedding band shopping! You might find one that you actually like (I bet a thin twisted one would look great). Breathtaking ring.

As others have said. If I didn’t see a wedding band then I would think engaged rather than married. I have a friend with a 3 stone engagement ring. And she isn’t married yet so personal experiences come into effect. But it boils down to how bothered you are about the married title

I wouldn’t assume anything since I don’t pay much attention to random strangers’ engagement rings and wedding bands (I tend to look at people’s shoes, not their jewellery). I guess if I did notice a three stone ring I’d think “taken”, but that’s it.

MrsFuzzyFace :  how about getting a simple Classic wedding band for your left hand and wearing the ering on your right alone? Then you could switch if you wanted to but most people will assume from a plain band that you are married.

I’m not really sure what difference it would make in day to day living. Does your husband not like you wearing it alone and would prefer you add a band?

I also have a 3 stone diamond ring and switch off which hand I wear it on or if Im wearing one of the 3 diamond bands I have on the other hand. I’ve never given it a thought about somebody else wondering about my marital status or not.

I would not assume anything. I would definitely notice all that bling & think how beautiful the ring is & how lucky you are. Like PP’s it looks like an anniversary ring to me.

There are people who wear rings on that finger who are not engaged. They also sell engagement rings that are meant to be wore by themselves without a wedding band. I came across one when I was looking for an ER. It was a beautiful solitare but I didn’t know how I felt about not having a wedding band. However it was much less substantial than your ring. 

I love the way your ring looks by itself & I wouldn’t give a damn what anyone thought!

I thought engaged when I saw the title but I understand what you mean, it looks very substantial on its own. Either way I agree that it doesn’t need anything added. Beautiful!

Looks like an anniversary ring to me, but when i was growing up, it was rare to see a 3-stone ering. I say wear it how you like. I wear just the ering on my left and nobody has ever asked whether i was married or engaged

I tend to assume larger 3 stone bands are anniversary rings. I would think you were married with the band alone!

I’m having he same dilemma as you!  I just picked up my three stone upgrade and it was designed with the intention of wearing it alone but now I’m debating if I should add either a narrow milgrain plain band for along side or a small bezel millgrain eternity band to show that I’m married…… Decisions decisions!
