    DH gave me a really nice RHR as a wedding gift and after wearing both my ering and my RHR at the same time, we both thought it was a little much. As such, I rotate between the two. I’ll wear the RHR on some occasions but I generally wear my ering day-to-day.

    I had my ring sized for my left ring finger, and I can’t wear it on my right hand because I can barely get it over the knuckle!

    I have one eternity type band that was my engagement ring and became my wedding band and I wear it every day on my left hand.  I also have an “engagement style” ring (a halo) that Hubs gave me on our wedding day as a gift, and I most often wear it on my right hand, but occasionally on the left with the band.  (I think the styles don’t blend well so I don’t usually wear them together).

    In your case, I suggest wearing the original band on the left and the new “RHR” on the right, and then add a band to it down the road for the next significant anniversary.

    @megan331979:  I have a similar issue! I got another ring for bday gift and since I like solitaires, it’s also a solitaire … and frankly looks odd on my right hand, so now I am going to rotate both rings on my left hand 🙂

    Do you have pictures of your rings? The bees like pictures 🙂

    SO’s East European, so we wear them on the right hand.  The Spanish and Germans do the same, if I remember correctly! 🙂

    If he bought it for you to wear on your right hand, I recommend you wear it on your right hand!

    I guess I’m confused about why you’re calling it an engagement ring. Can’t it be a special ring from your husband without being called an engagement ring? My FI plans to get me more fine jewelry pieces as the years go by, including rings, but he wouldn’t be getting them to replace the engagement ring or wedding ring. The engagement ring is what he proposed with, and the wedding band will be what we marry with. Sometimes, I’ll just wear the wedding band.

    Whenever he gets me another ring (It’ll be down the road, not soon), I’ll wear it on any other finger, *except* my left hand ring finger, which I reserve for only those two rings that are from the proposal and wedding. It doesn’t mean it won’t be extremely meaningful and symbolic to me, it’s just that not every very meaningful thing he does nees to relate to the “wedding finger.” I will probably put it on my right ring finger or right index finger, since when I wear cocktail rings and such, that’s where I tend to put them. Sometimes I put a ring on my left index finger or right middle finger, but not very often.

    He jokes that when we’re old and in our rocking chairs he’ll have covered me from head to toe in jewelry. It’s a romantic thought, isn’t it? And the grandkids can point to each piece and hear the story. Rather than having them all go on the same finger, but not at the same time of course… in that situation, the dresser would be covered in jewelry, but not you!
