    Same. Way. Always.

    I always wear mine in the same direction even though they are the same in either direction. Because they are white gold, I find that if I wear them facing the same way/everyday, it only wears (rhodium fades) on one side, so I don’t need to have them dipped as often. I use the jewelers stamp/hallmark as a guide to remind me which way it goes on.

    I would have a hard time time determining which side was which.

    fromtexas:  My e-ring is identical either way, except that I chipped it in the first month so I now know exactly which way it is and always wear it the same way. No one else would notice though as it’s a tiny chip but I like knowing it’s always facing the same way

    I have to wear my engagement ring a certain way. It has pave down the band on both sides and one of the prongs on one side is kind of “scratchy” if I wear it so it touches my middle finger. So that side always has to touch my pinky finger (I don’t feel it that way for some reason). Luckily when the jeweler fixed a loose stone in the halo the prongs don’t look exactly like the other side so I know which side is which.

    I can wear my wedding band any way, that doesn’t matter.

    fromtexas:  I honestly have no idea. I haven’t really thought about it before. I think if I did conciously take it out and put it on, I might flip it around, but it’s a circle…it’s pretty much the same on both sides.

    I did wonder if people did this! 

    My ring looks the same way both ways but on the inside on the opposite side to the hallmark it has some initials of, I am guessing the maker so because of my obsessive compulsive tendencies I make sure they are facing the right way up so I do wear my ring the same all the time!

    Mine connect. So I just take them off keeping them together and put them back on keeping them together. But my engagement ring is exactly the same from both sides so I’d never know. But my wedding band can only be worn one way.

    I’m not super particular about it, but my ering has a tiny flaw from when it was cast – I can only really notice it at a certain angle – and I usually put my ring on with the flaw on the left side. I don’t check every single time I put it on, though! I actually really like that little flaw because I can wear it the same direction

    Here’s the right way:

    And here’s the wrong way:

    My set goesback on the same way i took it off. My ering has a heart and two infinity symbols and the one side is more crisp then the other so i let the crisper side face out and hide the not so crisp side face my wedding band.
