It was annoying for a couple of weeks, and I’d move it to my right hand if I had to write anything. It doesn’t bother me anymore though.

I simply got use to it.  I have a halo so it kinda swings to the left side of my left hand, so I tend to move the halo/stone towards the right when I’m writing.  However since I spen most of my time typing it is not a problem.

I don’t think it bothered me. I wore another ring before but not with a stone. I think once you get use to it, it doesn’t bother you.

My husband is a leftie. He thought a ring would get annoying, but he hardly even notices it anymore.

My husband and I are both lefties and have zero issues. I always wore rings and he never did before. I bang it a bit more than I would in my right hand so I’m glad it’s not a more easily bent/scratched metal or a softer stone thats easier to damage. Because I gesture a lot w my left and drink with it etc, I feel like it’s also more noticeable Or like it shows off more so I get a tiny bit self conscious about that. Best thing about it is that watches go on my right wrist so I can wear pretty bracelets with my e-ring.

Nope. I just had to get used to wearing a ring on my ring finger.

Nope, but the sparkle is sometimes distracting lol. And everytime I sign for a package, grocery receipt, etc people notice it-so I also get more compliments than average because it gets flashed more 🙂

I’m a lefty and I always wear rings/bracelets/watches on that hand so I am used to it. Wearing on the right feels awkward and uncomfortable to me. I like how, since I do things with my left hand more, it gets noticed more by people 🙂

sunflower22:  no, my ring has never bothered me. My ring has a very low setting. I have thin bands, so they are easy to wear

sunflower22:  Why would it be any different than a right handed person?  I am a leftie myself and I wear rings on both hands it is no different on either hand.

It bothered me for a bit because of the way my keyboard and phone are situated on my desk.  For the first few months I was constantly knocking my ring on my desk when grabbing my phone.  I rarely do it now. I do everything with my left hand so there are still sometimes when I just can’t be bothered and take my rings off, like cleaning and cooking.

Well it’s a bit annoying when I write and I’m always afraid of scratching the ring while at work, but now that I read other bees’ comments, it’s true that people notice it a lot since it’s on the hand I use the most! So I guess that’s good!! : )

It bothered me at first to have that little bit of extra weight on my finger. Especially because my ring finger is crooked and I am left handed, writing almost hurts sometimes. It also irks me sometimes not to be able to hold my fingers close together bc my pinky, ring and middle cannot touch with the ring on.
