I am the only one who plans on wearing ering first, then wring?

I have seen a number of bees here with their rings like that! I’ll wear mine the traditional way though

Mine just looks better w-ring first. I think whatever makes you happy, it’s YOUR rings!

I can wear mine either way but chose to do the traditional way

You can wear them however you want… “the Rules” on this have been thrown out the window in recent years as women are moving away from just 2 Rings (ERing & WBand) and getting more and more into a multitude of Rings (the stacking trend)

In many cases this means that sometimes rings are even worn on more than one finger (ie WBand on the left hand, ERing on the right, etc)

This post tho remiinds me of something cute I read here on WBee once about the traditional format where one wears the WBand closest to the heart…

The ERing goes on last because it is The Promise that keeps The Commitment / Vow in place.

Thought that kind of cute.

I usually wear my ering first. It’s a bit top heavy and more “wiggly” than the wedding band. Like you said, I like the extra security.

Wear them however you would like. I wear my ering on my left hand and my wedding band on my right. The only people that seem to comment on this are people who are single and not in relationships.

I don’t know what I plan to do yet, but I say do what you like best and feel more comfortable with! I have friends who wear them all sorts of ways, including wring after ering, or no ering, or ering on the left/wring on the right, and vice versa!

I do that sometimes. I wear my rhr on my left hand and the solitaire is a little large for that finger. My “anniversary” band that I wear with it keeps it on my hand. I know traditionally the wedding ring is supposed to be worn closest to the heart. These days though, think anything goes!

I have seen a few people wear their rings like that, although moreso in person than on the Bee. Where them however you like! Smile

@McBezel:  My e-ring was muuuuuch more expensive and on top it’s a tiny bit more lose, so I like to secure it with my wband. My wband has a bunch of little diamonds, while my e-ring is “naked”, so that’s another reason why I like to wear my wband “in front” 🙂

I’d want to wear mine the traditional way because the rings I have in mind would look better that way – I’d resize my e-ring if I were in this situaiton.

I wear mine the traditional way because that looks “right” to my eye. If I had a ring I was afraid was too big, I would resize it instead of depending on another ring to keep it secure. But your rings are YOUR rings, and you can wear them however you think looks best.

@McBezel:  I wear mine the same way, ering first. I do it this way because I got the ering first and the wring second so it made more sense to do it this way. Also, my ering is loose so the wring holds if in.

@McBezel:  The way my wring is curved, I think it looks better on top than ‘closest to the heart’ plus considering my ering is around 20 times more expensive, I’d prefer the wring to act as a stopper to keep it safe 🙂

This will be my set- screw tradition and I can’t wait to wear it!!
