    I wear my e-ring on the right hand, because nothing matches with it and it’s a nice stand alone ring. We knew from beginning that this would be the plan.

    Then, when shopping for my wedding band, we realized we really liked the look of a set, so we found a delicate, not too expensive set that we liked and that’s what I’m wearing on my left hand…

    I posted something about this a few weeks ago. I would go with separate hands.

    My e-ring is pretty detailed and thick, which doesnt leave all that much room for the type of band that I want. Because of the detail on my ring, it also makes it pretty hard to get a band that I like (I’m limited to only chanel set, which don’t really interest me). I’ve decided to purchase the band that I’ve always wanted and rock that bad boy on my left hand and move my e-ring to my right. 

    BTDubs, those are some GORGEOUS rings!!

    I agree that they would look good on both hands, separated. I think there’s so much going on with each of them, that they could be better appreciated for their own uniqueness if they weren’t right next to each other. There’s nothing wrong with this, either – it’s a matter of personal choice, so I hope you don’t feel awkward about it. In Ukrainian tradition, they wear the ring on the right hand. I’m not a “double ring” girl, so I just got a wrap (stones on the sides, but no middle stone, and there is a gap in the middle where it basically fits over another ring to add accent on the side). I know if I had 2 rings, I’d constantly fidget with it and wonder “do these two really fit together?” and be so OCD about it that I could never enjoy them. The wrap is nice b/c you can get them saudered together so they look like 1 cohesive ring.

    I wear mine together on my left hand, but I know women who wear them separately. I have one friend who wears wedding band on left, e-ring on right because her wedding band is thick, and her e-ring band is angled and would not sit at all flush with the wedding band.

    Those rings are both gorgeous! My ring is a very simple solitaire, so I’m personally going to wear both on my left ring finger. However, with those two beauties, I would wear one on each hand. I would probably do it ‘backwards’ though. I’m used to my Engagement Ring on my left hand, so I’d probably wear the wedding band on the right hand, and that’s only because I’m so used to this ring where it is now. I see no problem with splitting up your e-ring/band, or wearing whichever one you’d like whenever you like.

    I switch mine around. I have two wedding rings (!) and one e-ring and they trade places based on my mood and what I’m wearing. The deal is that one of the three has to be on ‘the’ finger!

    One of my wedding rings look nice wiht the e-ring. The other is the Cartier trinity band which I like to wear on its own.

    There’s no rule–wear them how you want!

    My intention was always to wear my rings together but during summer my fingers started to swell and it got uncomfy so I switched my e-ring to my right hand. Its been there ever since and I don’t see myself switching it back.

    I’ve never enjoyed wearing more than 1 ring on a finger. I find it uncomfortable and my wedding and engagement rings will be a somewhat different style and I don’t think they would look good together.

    I’ll be wearing my wedding ring on my left hand and my engagement ring on my right hand (although in Finland the wedding ring looks like the engagement ring and vice versa :P)

    my mom always wore her wedding band alone on her left hand and her e-ring on her right hand, and so honestly it was only a few years ago that i even noticed this wasn’t the norm. i love that band but i would definitely separate those two rings, as it’s a lot going on for one finger.

    I never would consider wearing my engagement ring separately from my wedding ring. I knew I would be wearing them together a lot longer than I would be wearing the engagement ring alone. That’s why I got the 1 carat weight of my engagement ring rather than the 3 carat weight. I didn’t want to ever think my engagement ring looked better on its own than with my wedding rings. 

    When we went shopping for wedding rings, we looked at how the wedding ring looked with my engagement ring. If the rings looked better separated from each other, we didn’t even consider them. Finally we found a wrap that my engagement ring sets right into. They look perfect together, and I can’t wait to wear them together all the time…I will be wearing it in only 29 days!!!

    I wear mine separately, and I love the look! I fell so hard for my engagement ring (helped pick it out) that I wasn’t even willing to consider not getting it just because of that issue. Who cares? THey are your hands!

    I am going to be wearing mine seperately… There is NO wedding band that will properly fit with my e-ring…. I am not thrilled with the idea, but I love both rings, and they each can hold their own.

    i wear my rings on separate hands.  my ering is a split shank, so i think it looks better on it’s own.
