Is the engagement ring the wedding ring?

We're sometimes asked is the engagement ring the wedding ring?  Conventionally the groom has only a single wedding band and no engagement ring BUT the bride traditionally has two separate, but often matching, wedding and engagement rings, worn side by side on the same finger by the bride.  The engagement ring is worn by the prospective bride from the start of the 'engagement to be married' and the wedding ring is added later at the marriage ceremony.  It is possible to have just one ring serve the purpose of a combined wedding and engagement ring but this is still a relatively rare choice for most brides.
