Just wondering if this is common practice. I got married in June and before my wedding, I only wore my e-ring on my ring finger. Now, I will wear other rings besides my e-ring/wedding band. For example, DH gave me a beautiful amethyst and rose gold ring for Christmas and I am now wearing it in place of my wedding set. I have some girlfriends who do the same thing, and others who wouldn’t dream of it… what do you bees do/think?

To me personally, I think it makes a difference that the “new” ring in question is still from your DH. If its from him, with love I see no problems!

I wear other rings like that on my right ring finger, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with your choice.

I have a promise ring which I wear on my right hand’s ring finger!
I’ve heard of a lot of women actually having interchangeable wedding sets… all the sets still mean something to them somehow (like they got is on ___th anniversary or something). I think it’s really cool! 🙂 I don’t see anything wrong with wearing something else besides your original wedding set on your left ring finger sometimes

@DeathByDesign: I also wear my promise ring on my right ring finger. (It fits better and it’s less hassle – no more “no, I’m not engaged” responses)
As for interchangeable, I agree with PP – if it’s still from DH, what’s the big deal? Not to mention he what that finger’s size is, so chances are if he got you another ring, it’d be that size.
SN: beautiful amethyst!

I have a tanzanite (Chastity) ring I used to wear on my left ring finger since I was 16. This may be my stand-in this summer for Field School as I don’t want to damage my ring if I go on a dig and if I go to the Guatemala highlands I don’t want to be wearing a ring worth about half of my student debt on my finger as I study the Maya (the only other rings on the trip will be my two professors’ very understated bands).

I don’t think I would ever wear a different ring because it doesn’t have the same meaning.
