Honestly, I was never into wearing an alternative. BUT…then I fell in love with a solitaire and then an eternity band and talked to my husband about it. He says he doesn’t care what I wear, as long as I have a ring on THAT finger. ๐Ÿ˜ so now I’m excited about this band and I’m sure I’ll wear it often and just switch between them all depending on my mood. ๐Ÿ˜€

No, I have enough place on right hand for that stuff))

And my husband is sentimental about our rings, so..

Yeah, I have rings I switch between regularly, not just for special occasions. Heck, I switch rings from one finger to the next during the course of a day sometimes. I never originally had an engagement ring by choice, and since then have collected a few different rings I switch between. I prefer to wear only one ring on my left ring finger usually, or one ring on each hand at most. But, I like pretty rings so have no problem switching out rings on my left finger.

For me, wearing rings or not wearing rings (or a certain ring) is not what makes me married or not married. Though, I do see having rings on that finger as a symbol of commitment, they aren’t necessary for the commitment, nor is any specific ring necessary for the commitment. My husband shares the same view, and though he only has one band he loves, he can’t wear it much because of his work anyway. He is no less committed because he does not wear a ring at all usually, and I am no less committed as I switch my ring around ๐Ÿ™‚

I think I got this from my mum mostly. She met my stepfather when I was 7 or so, and though they did not get married until 25 years later (her choice) he would regularly buy her rings for special occassions and she would switch between them all the time on her left ring finger. She also added a few of her own over the years, or wears her own mother’s and grandmother’s rings. She married with a very pretty filigree band a few years ago, but she still switches her rings all the time. I don’t blame her, she has some beautiful coloured stone rings in particular and I would want to wear them too!

I do often. My line of work is famous for loosing rings, so I wear a cheap alternative set. I also have a large stand in set in wearing right now due to pregnancy swelling. I have an amazing 1 year anniversary ring that is too much with my wedding set, so sometimes I wear that. 

 

Dh doesnt care.

They’re several people on here that do this, and they have a thread titled The Many Ring Club. I do play around with different bands, but I only have one e-ring. I’ve considered getting an alternative one because I learned about Radiants since joining the bee. I don’t personally know anyone with one, but after seeing them on here, I want lol!

I have two wedding bands.

A half eternity in white gold with diamonds that matches my white gold diamond and sapphire ering. The band is curved to sit against the ering so it looks silly to wear alone.

Then a yellow gold band for the ceremonial jewelry I’ll need during our traditional wedding. I have a solitaire yellow gold ring with white gold prongs with a very small diamond that my fiancé gave me a long time ago (just a gift not a ering). It’s too large so we need to size it down. But I could see pairing it with my gold band and switching things up. I may also wear the gold band alone some days.

 

Do what makes you happy!
