They are separate pieces but I wear them together. They look like they go together anyway.

They come off when I go to sleep (sometimes they don't, whatever) and if I'm going swimming, I'll take off the engagement ring because depending on the day, the rings could slide right off.

My parents have never worn rings for as long as I've been alive.

I only had 1 ring when married. Two seemed excessive.

I wear my rings ALL the time...what is the point of having it, if you don't wear it? Diamonds are pretty tough...they don't scratch, and if they get dirty, you clean them!

If your rings "slide" off...get them properly sized! No more problems!

Wear your rings!!

I never take off my plain gold wedding band, but I only wear my engagement ring when I get dressed up and go out. It's not a diamond, it's a padparadscha sapphire. I don't want it to get damaged, and I would just feel weird wearing it while washing dishes, digging in the garden, or riding my mountain bike.

I always wear both, but my engagement ring has a very small diamond by today's "standards." I love it though and wear it proudly because it reminds me of a time when we could afford far, far less and reminds me of our first days together. I do take the engagement ring off if I'm in a pool or at the beach. Probably because my mother lost her engagement ring in a lake.

Years ago my husband wanted to replace it and had budgeted for it. A family member had some very unexpected medical expenses related to a child. I elected to give the budgeted funds to the family member for those expenses. That was far more important to me than a flashy diamond.

Stupid question - do engagement rings and wedding bands have to be picked together so they match? Doesn't it look weird to have two rings on one finger with different design?


Why not wear one on the left hand and one one the right?


Do any of you have an engagement ring that they use as a wedding band or do people usually always have both?


How about men, they don't wear engagement rings, or am I wrong?

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?

I have my engagement ring soldered to the wrap, with an additional plain ring on the other side of the engagement ring. So on the bottom of my finger, it looks like three rings of the same size. I can take off the engagement/wrap diamond rings & still have the one ring there, which is what I do when doing chores or something where I don't want those diamonds on my finger for whatever reason.

My husband wears his wedding ring on a chain around his neck for this very reason.

My husband picked out my engagement ring, a trillion solitaire, and when we picked out wedding rings together, I wanted two smaller trillion diamonds on either side of the solitaire. I bought that wrap myself, and he bought the plain ring for the other side.


Some couples do pick out both at the same time, but he totally surprised me with mine.


I did not give him an engagement ring, I've never heard of that.
