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, Darling Husband 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 Darling Husband. 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 Darling Husband, 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.
