Do you wear a ring?

I've been thinking of getting a ring recently. I'm not counting wedding rings here just something you wear because you like the look of it. Something very simple but elegant looking, I hate most of the popular flashy/gaudy rings. Something like these two:

The first one is actually a wedding ring. Is there such a thing as an official wedding ring or does simply wearing it on the wedding finger make it one? Can anyone recommend places to buy one?

I'm not yet married, not an engineer, and not Guy Fieri. No rings yet for me.

2 nipple rings and that's it. I have a wedding ring and a ring my Mom gave me as a kid sitting in my sock drawer.

The first one looks way too much like a wedding ring, so I would avoid it. The second one looks acceptable.

Hey, I'm Italian and I don't wear any rings.

Of course, I'm not from Long Island either.

Now I'm just bitter that that's the image people get when they think of Italians. EVERYONE looks like that up there. My family didn't bring blowout haircuts, wifebeaters, and a moderate steroid problem with them. I promise.

I plan on getting a carbide ring for my wedding band... and wear my school ring every once in a while.

who cares though -- if you like it, get it

I used to, but not so much anymore. I'll wear one every so often.

It's only a wedding ring if you wear it on the ring finger. Anyway, ebay is a really good place to find rings.

all my rings are too big on me since I've lost weight and I haven't bought any new ones.

even the ring that was sized for my middle finger when I was 18 just slides off now.

why would you wear a ring that's not a wedding ring if you were a guy? Not insulting, just curious.

Because you like the way it looks. I don't wear them as much do to activity that causes pain or loss potential when wearing a ring, but I like them.

Wearing the ring on your left hand ring finger makes it a wedding ring. Nothing special about the ring itself except that it was exchanged in the ceremony.

True, but some rings definitely look more weddingy (not a word, but you know what I mean) than others.
