    I’ve never had this problem, mind you, I haven’t written in any spiral notebooks in a while.  I can imagine that would cause a problem.  I’m one of the lefties that still wears my watches and bracelets on the left though so maybe I’m just used to it.

    Fellow lefty here!  I can’t say I’ve ever had my ering interfere with writing and I don’t use spiral notebooks.  It may be they way you write…I’ve noticed lefties tend to either turn their paper/notebook/etc. to write or they turn their hand…my dad’s a lefty too and he’s a hand turner and I’m a page turner lol.  When I wore a watch, I wore it on my right hand, and bracelets I usually wear on my left. 🙂

    I’m a lefty and I have a similar problem.  The way I write causes my halo to drag on the paper so I tend to rotate it right, so it’s facing my middle finger so I don’t damage it while writing.  It was really annoying at first but I’ve learned to live with it.

    Haven’t used a spiral notebook in a long time, but does it matter because 1/2 the time you’re writing on the left side so wouldn’t the same thing happen to righties when they write on the left side (back of the paper)? 

    It doesn’t get in my way, but I have a callus at the top of my palm where the rings hit when I bend my finger. None of the right handed people I know have one, so I think it’s because I use my left hand more? Or maybe it’s just me.

    Yep, this happens a lot when I write. I also get paranoid about damaging my rings because I use my left hand for everything, so I’m always taking them off!

    I don’t, but I thought about this very carefully when I was choosing my ring. My stand-in I wore while searching for a “real” ring sits 6mm high and I found this was too high for me, I knocked it all the time. My forever ring only sits 4mm high and I never bash it. How long have you had it? Maybe you will get used to it.

    I don’t have any problems with writing or anything. Ive always thought being a lefty is really lucky for engagement rings because you don’t wear some watch right next to your gorgeous ring. Instead your e-ring can stand out on its own or have a pretty bracelet next to it instead of a watch. (Something abt putting something so functional next to something so pretty and with such meaning seems to detract from the e-ring to me)

    I’m a lefty and haven’t had any problems. My ring has no pointy or catchy parts though.


    The first week I had my ring though, it was hard to write because I kept staring at my ring and not at what I was writing!

    @musical-lady:  Yes, I’m a lefty as well and I’ve noticed it gets caught occasionally in spiral notebooks and such.  It’s got a halo and split shank and I bang it around sometimes…I wouldn’t say excessively, but enough to be noticed.  

    However as a lefty I can be quite klutzy and am used to banging into things or getting any type of ring caught on things  🙂

    I’m not a lefty but I live in a country where the wedding and e-rings are worn on the right hand. It was annoying to begin with when I wrote but I’ve eventually got used to it, I seem to swivel it subconsciously.

    I put sometimes because while I’m right handed my right hand ring will do the same thing….it will spin sometimes while I’m typing or writing and drives me crazy. My knuckles are big, so the ring can’t really be sized down any further or I won’t be able to get it on or off.

    Yup, it’s one of the reasons why I didn’t want an ornate ring, any pave, etc.  My fingers press together when I write, and if I’ve written a lot in a day my ring will cause an indent.  Since I carry things in my left hand, I always worry about warping the ring too.
