Not always. I wear my wedding ring every day. My engagement ring is left in its box at home. But that is because of my work which needs my handwriting and drawing. Not very convenient if I am wearing a halo diamond ring. If it's for a date, an exhibition or a concert, I will wear it with my wedding ring.

Most people do, Dismasa.

In fact, the engagement ring and the wedding ring are usually sold as a set with the intention that the owner will wear both together as a matched set following the wedding. But of course, some people do not give or receive an engagement ring but do get a wedding ring at the time of the ceremony, so there's nothing amiss about wearing only that one.

Many (most?) people do. My wife wears her engagement ring, wedding ring and eternity ring all together on the same finger. I haven't worn my wedding ring for a time because it's so loose and I can't find a local jeweler I trust to resize it.

Most women do. There are some who do not wear the engagement ring due to they type of job they have.

When I was married in my 20s I wore my engagement ring and wedding ring since it was designed as a set to be worn together. I gained weight in my 30s due to a bad thyroid and then we bought a wedding band that I wore for about 10 years until I lost weight again to fit into my tiny rings. Now I wear those rings and the extra band is set aside because it's too huge. If I had to do this all over again, I'd forego the engagement ring and suggest just a pretty wedding band instead because I'm constantly bumping the diamond on the engagement ring part and worry it will knock off its setting some day.

Yes, I keep my engagement ring and wear it with my wedding ring every day after getting married. They mean a lot to me. My love gave me the engagement ring. He chose a brand named Darry Ring that can only be customized once. He said he couldn't buy a ring for others because it only can be bought for true love. And he bought our wedding bands. I asked a craftsman to solder my two rings together to wear them together easier.

I stopped wearing my wedding ring when it got caught in the door push bar at the supermarket. I about broke my finger. It wasn't long until a couple of old maids tried to fix me up with their young widow friend. Weeks later, on another husband-hunting expedition, they asked me if I was married. After replying yes, they scolded me to no end about not wearing my ring. So even if I amputate my finger at the supermarket in days ahead, I wear it religiously.

I wear my ring all of the time, my wife and I did not get her a real engagement ring - so she does not have one (and never wanted one); but she does wear her wedding band every day.
