Wearing Your Wedding Ring Separately
You may want to select a wedding ring that provides you with flexibility in wearing it separately. Depending on your lifestyle (e.g., active, frequent travel), and lifestage (e.g., young children), it is nice to be able to wear your wedding ring by itself. Make sure you select a wedding ring you love on its own and also with its engagement ring companion.
Unique Wedding Rings
You may be looking for a unique wedding ring and don't want it to compete for attention with your engagement ring. If you have a contemporary aesthetic, you may also prefer to showcase your engagement and wedding rings separately.
Wide Wedding Rings
If you like the look of a wide wedding ring (4mm or wider), it simply may not fit well next to your engagement ring, but it will look terrific on its own. Many also consider wearing a wide wedding ring as an alternative to an engagement ring and wedding ring set.
You may want to offset your wedding ring on a different hand when you marry to give yourself the option of layering it with other bands in the future (anniversaries or other occasions). This is called ring stacking.
