Wedding ring

Do you still wear your original wedding ring? I'm specially wondering about those that have been married a long time. What happened to the original wedding ring? Did some of you upgrade too? Mine is white gold w/half caret and I hate that I have to redip it every year and I rather get a simple gold band with litte dimonds on it I saw it at Sams club lol I like nice but simple no hassel.

  • Both of us wear ours everyday, never take them off. We've been married 16 years. I got hubby a new band for our 10th anniversary, he got me an anniversary band for our 15th. We had my wedding band and engagement ring soldered (sp?) together about 10 years ago, I wear all three rings now all the time. My ring is not huge, we bought it at the Exchange on Base, and we made payments for 2 years! I wouldn't trade it for anything though, it symbolizes so much!

  • I had 3 marriages and never had wedding rings. My daughter doesn't like the ring her df gave her so she went to Sam's and upgraded. I'm sure I would do the same thing.

  • MY FIRST YEAR OF MARRIAGE, HUBBY DECIDED TO TAKE HIS OF BECAUSE IT BOTHERED HIM, (HE DOES NOT WEAR ANY TYPE OF JEWELRY) SO I IN TURN DECIDED NOT TO WEAR MINE EITHER. WE HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR 38 YEARS, I STILL SOMETIMES WEAR IT ON SPECIAL OCCASSIONS BUT NOT IN THE CORRECT FINGER AND NO HAVEN'T UPGRADED, BUT I HAVE BOUGHT MYSELF OTHER RINGS OF MY LIKING.

  • Yep. It is nearly 4.5 years old. It is only 1/16 caret diamond though. I wanted something very simple. I love it to pieces though. Then again my engagement ring is stainless steel. Hubby says he wants to upgrade me at some point but like for our 20th anniversary and I would have to find something I like. I have only ever found 2 diamond rings in my life that I like.

  • I don't wear my original band, but I wear my ring he gave me a year later. He lost his original band in Iraq, but still has his nice one, but doesn't wear it because it gets scratched at work.

  • not married here, but i think if i were, i would wear it all the time. maybe i'm saying that because i'm so eager to get married and want people to know once i am. i still wear a ring though especially when i am out with my kids. its bad, my crazy insecurity.

  • Hubs and I have been married for 18 yrs. He wore his ring for the 1st 1-2 yrs, and then would only put it on for special occasions. Well over the years the ring seemed to 'shrink' and did not fit anymore. For my rings I wore them all the time, until I was pregnant with my 1st. My fingers swelled so bad I could not wear them. After my 2nd was born I did have my rings re-sized and would wear them when we went out or for special occasions. Currently I am not wearing them- although I do know where they are.

  • I wear my original engagement ring it is pretty wide so I don't wear a wedding band. I have never worn my wedding band and it doesn't bother him. I did get an anniversary band that I wore with the engagement ring for a while but I just pretty much stick with the engagement ring.
    DH occasionally wears his wedding band (due to his job), it doesn't bother me. I would like to get new matching wedding bands but he said he would never wear it because it's not the one that I put on his finger 9 1/2 years ago.

  • We're going to celebrate #12 a week from now, and I have two wedding sets. I have my original, which I love. I don't wear it all that often because it's just a little tight and the hot summers here make my fingers swell. He gave me an anniversary band when we were married 8 years, and I normally wear that with a gold band. It's a size 5 and fits me during the summer. When the weather is colder, I will probably wear my original wedding set more (it's a size 4 3/4). I've thought about sizing my wedding set up about a quarter of a size, but I also have a few pounds to lose and I don't want to go cutting into it.
