Wedding rings are a symbol and/or sign of marriage, but the covenant and commitment between the husband and the wife IS marriage.
The substance is more important than the symbol or sign.

He got sliced.
A good husband wear’s his wedding ring, but an even better husband is committed to keeping the vows (promise) that the ring represents.
