Yep , wear em always together . I wear them to Europe frequently when we see my husband family and I don't take them off when schooling the horses .

This isn't my first marriage but has lasted longer @ nearly 2 decades and we are still like little twins. It just happened that way , we didnt try . I don't even want to know what is going to happen when one of us goes first . Husband has to take his off and puts his in his pocket when he is repairing airplanes at work.

As a guy I don't wear any rings. Ice seen too many people get major traumatic damage from rings on fingers. I switched to a ceramic wedding band. I got badly shocked wearing my gold band. I don't wear a ring at work

Mine are not a set, but I wear them both all the time. I take them off to put on lotion, and then they go right back on, and that's it. Well, usually when baking, if I'm going to be kneading dough with my hands, but that's not a very regular event. Most of my foreign travel was pre-marriage/engagement, but we did go abroad for our honeymoon, and I wore my rings doing that and thought nothing of it.

My husband is military, and many of his colleagues (mostly Navy engineering rates, a lot of engine and electrical work) work jobs where hand and wrist jewelry is unsafe. Qalo rings are popular with them; they're made of medical grade silicone. Not my preferred look, but I get why they wear them.

My mom quit wearing her engagement ring for the same reason. I have a three-month old and haven't had that problem at this point. My husband did purposely pick out a low-profile setting ring, though, with several of the diamonds channel set, specifically because I work with kids, and scratching them with jewelry would suck.

I had mine glued together. Quit wearing them after a strange man was staring at it while I was pumping gas in 2007 start of the recession. Never put them back on after that and then my husband died. Not sure what to do with them; they aren't very big so they aren't worth much.

I've noticed many women just wear their wedding bands, and wear their diamond for special occasions. So, what do the rest of you do?
You are wise to leave it at home when traveling. In some countries you could put yourself in danger with a 3 carat ring. Otherwise, I would wear both and rotate the rock into your palm if you think you are in an area where it might become a liability*. Traditionally the wedding band is worn outside the rock, with the rock closest to your heart. But, as this article says, do what makes you happy: How to Wear A Wedding Band and Engagement Ring | eHow

*OTOH - a 3 carat could leave quite a bruise on a perp's face. That's if you have a good left hook!!

It depends on which ring I'm wearing. I wear my original ring alone, and my other one with an eternity band.
