    Yes--only on the other hand

    Yes--other (explain)

    No--time to give them up, sorry!

    Yes, anytime, any hand!

    You can mix metals. The “no wearing gold and silver/platinum” together is an outdated rule, even What Not To Wear says so!

    And your engagement ring is simple/sleek enough it will act as a neutral, it doesn’t clash. If you had a very ornately designed engagement ring, then I’d say wear them on different hands.

    I love cocktail rings, and wear them on my right hand frequently.

    @abbyful:  I agree 100%

    And I adore that cocktail ring! I don’t really wear any other rings, but for Betsey Johnson I could break that rule!

    I would probably wear them on my right hand–but only because I dont’ want anything competing on my left hand!  I agree, mix metals all you want!  I don’t personally wear other rings, but that’s because I never wore rings before my engagement ring (with the exception of when I was in high school).  Go for it!

    Absolutely!!  I would wear it on the right hand only because I don’t like being unbalanced and wearing rings on my left and not my right makes me a little crazy LOL.  I hated mixing metals when I was married the first time, because my set was yellow gold and NOTHING but yellow gold ‘matches’ it.  I eventually decided I didn’t care, and that was that!
