As far as the Michigan Conference is concerned, wedding rings are allowed, but highly discouraged. In practice, at least at the academy I went to, it's pretty much the same. Some choose to wear wedding rings and some don't. (I graduated Academy in 2007, for context).Now, were the teachers who chose to wear wedding rings looked down on by those who did not? I don't know, they might have been. As I wasn't an adult at the time I really couldn't say. Either way, at least in Michigan circles the stance on wedding rings is a lot more relaxed than what you describe.
Even when I was in the church, I saw the stance on wedding bands relax quite a lot. I imagine the whole jewelry issue is less taboo than it was when I was a child, although I think that always varied by congregation.
My parents don't wear wedding rings, though I think my mom has always wanted one. Unfortunately my dad was raised STRICT Adventist, so I don't think that will ever happen. :(
