There's an article on wearing at pealim that explains it all and this Memrise course on all the wearing words. I'm learning Wearing clothing in Hebrew on Memrise! http://www.memrise.com/course/1483491/

Oned is quite formal, but Lovesh dosn't sound very good here.

The informal way can be - שם טבעת / הולך עם טבעת

? טבעת Can somebody shed some light on the root of

The root is ט-ב-ע, which has several meanings. The one relevant for טבעת is 'to imprint' - since one of the early uses of rings was as a seal. Another related noun is מטבע - a coin.
