I went to a party last night and ran into a girl who was recently married. She was wearing her wedding band on her right hand and engagement ring on the left. I’ve never noticed anyone doing this before but I kind of liked it! Does anyone else do this?

Yep, I am constantly switching my rings around, back and forth.
Sometimes I pop a stackable RHR onto my ring finger and mix it up with my wedding jewelry on my wedding ring finger, too.

I’m a professional cellist, and a lot of my colleagues and I wear both rings on our right hands. So for me it’s out of necessity, but a lot of Europeans do it as well. I think the idea of one ring on each hand could be nice!

I’m from Russia, and there the wedding band goes on the right hand, so it could be a cultural thing. I personally don’t yet know how I’ll wear my band, but see no issues with wearing it on the right!

@phillypheet: To me it is strange as shit, but FI is from Guatemala where most of the general population either isn’t married or can’t afford a w-band. And apparently if they do have one they wear it on their right hand. So first he tried to put the e-ring on my right hand. Then last week he asked me why I don’t wear my e-ring on my right hand. Threw me for a tiny loop. It seems really odd for me. If I saw a girl (or guy) with a ring on their right hand I wouldn’t even think they were married.

@phillypheet: I don’t or rather won’t when I have it, but my BFF does because she broke her left ring finger in a bowling mishap and can’t get it on her left hand anymore.

In most European countries people wear the wedding bands on the right hand. In the UK, however, it’s worn on the left hand, so that’s what I do.

I believe Jewish custom is the right hand and I know several people from Russia who also wear their rings on the right hand. I also know some left handed people who just find it more comfortable.

I wish there was a poll option of : No, but I have no judgement for those that do!
My left and right ring fingers are dramatically different sizes (my left is anywhere from a 5.5 to 6.5 depending on the time of day – my right 6.5-7.5). Anything that fits my left isn’t going to work for my right.
I do have a friend who has a very detailed art-deco style engagement ring which she wears on her left and she wears her band on her right. They just wouldn’t work on the same finger!

@MsGinkgo: this makes sense now because the girl I was talking about originally is Jewish! So that is probably why she does it!

I wear my band on the left every day, and I wear my “e-ring” (it was a wedding gift, actually, but it’s the style of a traditional e-ring, long story) on my right, but not every day because I can’t wear it to work.
There are no rules about wearing your rings, so try different things and see what you like and works for you. 🙂

It’s kind of rude to say that it’s weird/strange… it’s just a different custom.

It is traditional in the Eastern Orthodox Church to wear your wedding ring on your right hand, which is why many Eastern European people wear it that way.

I plan on wearing both of my rings on my left hand, but I definitely wouldn’t find it “weird” if someone was wearing it on their right. I’m sure they have a good reason, and even if they don’t, whatever floats their boat.
