    Good Morning!

    After a few recent threads on the falling in love with and out of love with stones and settings, retakes, returns, safety, if I could do it again etc... I would really like to see what you wear 85-90% of the time. Even if you have a love for a fabulous ring but wear something else daily, I want to see the daily. If you have a story about the daily I would like to hear that too. Please include if you are married and for how long if you don't mind. Please add current ring obsession.

    I was married with a simple small stone solitaire and a plain band with a few burnished diamonds. After a few years I wore only the band and then nothing for years and years. Married for 14 years. Then after an okay reset I found PS and became obcessed with getting new rings. Getting one thing, wanting another or an addition etc. Buying new and preloved. This for two years. Even though I have diamond bands and rings I still wear plain bands stacked 90% of the time. Plain 2mm rose gold, Trinity and perlee band. Currently obcessing over point size for shared prong eternity band purchase. All the while browsing and wondering if I want a 3 stone.

    I really consider the cost/wear/enjoying ratio and it got me wondering what you wear :wavey: most of the time!

    Thanks for sharing and the pics :bigsmile:

    Nothing can be an answer too even on PS! Especially if you only wear your rings on special occasions and nothing most days. Just wanted to be clear.

    I forgot my pic but you all have seen the rings I wear daily (since Aug lol)

    I am always changing what I wear. I would wear my wedding ring all the time probably if it fit, I just took it in to get resized and the jeweller didn't get it right. It will go on my finger but wont come off. It took forever to get it off. So in the pics my ring finger looks kinda bad. But I have been wearing my mom's ruby ring all the time lately, in place of my wedding ring. And on my right hand, a diamond band I got off ebay. I pretty much leave that on all the time.

    This! Daily wear excluding out of country holidays.
    It is my right hand ring, not a e-ring.

    I also wear my diamond studs every day and Tank Fancaise watch as well.
    I am married for 14 years. I wore my wedding ring every day but I kept damaging the stones. I therefore had it reset into a channel setting which I wear about 30% of the time

    Lately, I've been wearing my 1.58 transitional most days. It's a size that's not too ostentatious for a graduate student. After school, if I'm not lazy, I sometimes like to switch to my larger rings. Weekends are spent in my larger rings.

    This is what I wear 95% of the time whenever I leave the house:

    However, this Valentine's Day purchase should arrive by the end of the week, and it may (or may not) replace my solitaire:

    Married a little over 5 years.

    What do I wear most of the time? The honest answer is either nothing, or a plain 3mm band. I have a love/hate relationship with bling.

    This was me for so many years and I was quite content. I don't know what happened. Kind of wish I could get that back again. Lol. On the other hand I have seen your beautiful rings Ame. So classic simple and gorgeous!!! So what is going on here? Do you work with your hands?

    Thanks for contributing PSers to this thread. I have been really curious wondering if we actually are wearing the massive efforts we put in on this board. Or do they only sit until you run an errand or go to dinner. Enjoying the feedback and want to see and hear about more:)

    I am going through the same thing!!! Seriously what's this about. Darn it. I did return that WF solitaire. Something wasn't quite right. You asked in my other thread. After all the time and energy and freaking out over the prongs... Even after they did a beautiful job fixing it. I couldn't figure it out. I was too embarrassed to say then! Maybe it wasn't you who asked. Haha. But it's out now!

    I wear 3ctw shared-prong eternity most days. Sometimes I stack it with a sapphire eternity. If I don't want diamonds, I wear a rolling ring. But I plan to wear my new solitaire a lot so the eternities may be taken out of heavy wear for a while. I have a few RHRs but rarely wear them. This past week I was trying to make myself better in this horrible weather so I wore my pave band a lot. The extra sparkle makes it easier to deal with a snowstorm :naughty:.

    Haha, don't be embarrassed!! :) Yes, I did ask. I have returned my fair share of things too. I always seem to find something not quite right about my bling purchases. I feel most comfy with just a thin, plain band even though I do love to look at other peoples' sparklies.

    I used to wear them much more often. I appreciate the compliment, thanks!

    Well, right now it's balls cold, and I cannot do gloves with rings because it's wildly uncomfortable. The next few days though it should be nice so maybe I'll get more wear going this week. I'll often bring my rings with me to work, and by the time I think about putting them on it's like noon or later and I think "eh, no need now" so I don't even bother. If I have somethign going on in the evening I will wear them though. But I do work with my hands a great deal. I dig around in files a lot at work, and I don't like rings on at all for that. I pretty much consider my left hand absolutely worthless if my rings are on. Most I do while they're on is hold a beverage.

    I also work in the wedding business, and there's a lot that comes with that. Damage to paper and ink from the rings is primary. Anytime there's an assembly, no rings are allowed (me or anyone), no nails, no polish, no food/drink, no touching your face, etc. I am a bit of medusa around the rules because that stuff belongs to someone else at that stage, and it's just in my care! But when we setup at events, that work doesn't play nice with rings, and I often don't wear anything beyond a plain band to a consultation until I know who I am working with, as to not be offensive, if, say, my stone is larger or whatever than the bride's. If I know I am overshadowed, then I don't worry about it and might occasionally wear it. I've worked with some girls that have some AMAZING rings.

    Left hand:
    E-ring
    band (I change this around.)
    Watch - Thanks to Diamondseeker. She started the thread on watches, which made me dig out my old Rolex and now I'm wearing 24/7, except when working out. Even to sleep.

    image_1166.jpg

    Right hand:
    Gold bands

    image_1108.jpg

    Ears: (dang pic won't turn) Ears are still healing, but I love these plain 24K gold studs. LOVE them. Go figure... But studs are definitely near the top of my project list.
    image_1244.jpg

    Pendant. Never comes off, except when I am at the jewelers and he insists on cleaning it.
    pendant_1.jpg

    Before PS, it was a plain platinum wedding band and an emerald bracelet that I put on and got stuck. PS does kinda have a tendency to help you add/diversify... ;-)

    Most days I do not wear any earrings, bracelets/watches, or necklaces, as my 7 month old likes to pull on things. So for the most part I stick to rings.

    Left hand:
    3.62ctw OEC 5 stone, 14k rg shank, plat prongs
    1.8mm 18k rg Tiffany & Co band

    Right hand:
    2.9mm Cartier Trinity

    Diamond studs. The only time I don't wear them is when they are being cleaned, when I usually forget them in the cleaning solution for a day or so.

    Freke, love those studs.
    Braga, I am loving your right hand ring. :love:
    Love this thread and all the jewelry in it!

    Most of the time I wear my ER and engraved plat WB with my diamond hoops and Rolex. I do vary though but this is what I usually wear especially when I am rushing out the door and don't have time to ponder the choices. :bigsmile:
    Only pics I could find of my diamond hoops is from while back when I had bangs.

    Braga123- I love your left hand and your right hand. Those rings are beautiful!

    LLJsmom- I really like your right hand. Those plain bands look so rich and buttery. Tell me more, they look different widths? yes? Who made them?

    Ilvcarats- haha! black hair thingy is a must. Almost broke the clasp on one of my bracelets from grabbing my hair thingy. When the hair thing flew across the room I was way more concerned about finding that thing. Coming from a girl with a lot of hair! Of course your other jewels are divine.

    Armywife- Just beautiful. Would you say your five stone is a comfortable ring? Looks amazing!

    Butterfly!!! All those gorgeous things you own and you show me a watch?! This is what I am talking about. It is a lovely watch though and I LOVE that Michele watch in white. I love white:) I still want to know what rings you were 90% of the time. Or do you not wear rings 90% of the time? Plain band? nothing? but watch?!

    Frekechild- You too?! All of those color stone rings and really its earrings that are worn 90% of the time. They are gorgeous and deserve the honor but I am just surprised!

    I appreciate all the feedback and honesty!!!
