I agree with ejs. Can you find a small band to wear behind it?

Hmmm…it’s hard to say without seeing how curved your e-ring is.  What if you made the wedding ring very thin but fit flush with the curve of the e-ring?

TBH, you probably could take the engagment ring to a jeweler and have said jeweler asses what your options are as far as a wedding ring goes. He/she might be able to recommend some good options or make one custom based on your criteria.

i agree with fiftyfoot- go see your jeweler. is your ring curved on both sides? maybe you could flip it around? though i’m sure you would have done that. i think if you got a really tiny delicate band it could look cute floating nest to your curved ring.  good luck, let us know what you decide to do!

I was in a similar situation. I also have a vintage ring, and I decided to just use it to symbolize both. It’s beautiful and special because my fiancé picked it out himself, so I decided I really didn’t need another ring. Even though the ring won’t look different when we’re married, I know it will feel different to me. 

Good luck deciding what works best for you!

Ok then, if those are your two options I’d wear wedding band on the left and engagement ring on the right. Easy peasy.

Since you don’t like wearing both rings, I’d just use the same one. = )

I am in a similar situation, except I designed my ring with the expectation that it would be worn alone. I am getting a wedding ring made to wear by itself so once we are married I will have 3 options – 1) wear only engagement ring on my left hand, 2) wear only wedding ring on my left hand (which I will probably do when traveling, hiking or doing other non bling-friendly activities) and 3) wear the wedding ring on left and engagement ring on right. We wanted to have a symbolic ring for the ceremony and now I will have three options. The whole thing was my jeweler’s idea and I loved it. And lets be honest, who doesn’t like options?

We chose to have just one ring each.  Like you, I didn’t like the idea of having the engagement ring also serve as the wedding ring, because in my mind, the wedding is more important than the engagement.  We therefore didn’t have engagement rings.  The first time I get a ring will be at the ceremony.

My inclination in your situation would be to move the engagement ring to your right hand, and maybe not wear it all the time.  After all, if you are wearing a wedding ring, you don’t actually need to wear an engagement ring to show that you were once engaged.

I know my mother only wore her wedding ring for day-to-day use, and brought her engagement ring out for special occasions.  That might be one option for you.

I’m an Orthodox Christian.  Orthodox people often wear their wedding rings on their right hand.  But, I’m also living in a culture where people wear their rings on their left.  Therefore, I’ll wear my e-ring on my left and wedding ring on my right.  I know several people who do this, and they’ve never encountered problems from other people not understanding they are married.  (I even know men who wear one ring on each hand).  I also have friends who have huge heirloom engagement rings that are beautiful, but not really appropriate (or safe) for every day wear.  They wear their e-rings only on special occasions without any problems or confusion.

I personally would really like to have a separate wedding ring in your separation, so I’d move the engagement ring to the right hand.
