Do rings get ruined by being worn in the same finger?

As others have said, many places it’s normal to wear wedding bands and engagement rings together. I would suggest purchasing the same metal for both (14k gold, 10k gold, platinum etc) to minimize the wear from the rings rubbing each other

As long as they are the same metal the wear should be extremely minimal.

Literally almost everyone I know wears them together.

bee2020 :  people really have no shame these days. I’d be livid if someone told me that. 

To answer the op, I wear both my rings on the same finger. They were actually designed that way with a higher basket that lets the band sit flush. I’ve never seen a set of rings worn out to a point that you can’t use it anymore. There will be some scratches, but that’s normal with daily wear. People feel entitled to an opinion about our rings, from the way we wear them to the choice of stone and the price, which is absolutely none of their business. Ignore them and pick what YOU love.

Following. My rings don’t sit flush together, the setting for the ER is quite big and sit flat on my finger, it’s rose gold, the wedding band is eternity, and basically sit right next to the setting. I do wonder if the diamond will rub on the 18K rose gold setting? Anyway I’m wearing them on different hands at the moment. I do like the look of them together though..

My mother wore here two rings, on the same finger, for 50 years. It’s a art deco set, so a bit more detail, and there isn’t any noticeable wear on the sides, compared to the ring as a whole. You can’t tell if they were worn with another ring, or on their own, they simply have the wear, and patina, that you’d expect from gold. Actually, it’s probably a bit less than I’d expect from such a soft metal.

US Bee here.  Some people solder them together.  But most people just wear them together and it is fine.  I wear my wedding band all the time and only wear my ering when I am going out.  The diamond is kind of annoying for everyday things like changing diapers, in my opinion.  I like having the option of not wearing both all the time.  

I feel like rings are made to be worn, and if i live ling enough to somehow damage my setting, then my kids can reset my diamond if they want.  But honestly I don’t see many people with noticeable wear on their rings.
