Ummmm, I am glad I’m not the only one. I feel so silly doing it, but I always swap my rings while I’m driving by myself. 

I lived in Spain for a few years and they wear their wedding rings on their right hands there, so sometimes I just pretend I’m back in Spain my my right hand ring is the e-ring. 
I just bought a *really* cute ring while on vacation, it’s an east-west radiant cut CZ in yellow gold with 3 tiny round CZs flanking the centre stone. I love it! I was like “Well… this’ll be pretty while I’m driving” haha.

I used to do that. I’ve always loved sparkly and shiny things, so I had quite a collection of cubic zirconia (the cheap, $19.99 from a department store kind). I wouldn’t wear them on my ring finger in front of friends or family, but sometimes I would if I was out running errands by myself or home alone. It was fun to pretend ๐Ÿ™‚

I worked in a bar for 8 years. my SO bought me a promise/eternity ring about 2 years after I started, I wore it on my engagement finger to stop other men flirting with me and I just never took it off . Thats about 4 years ago. I think I will be engaged soon and now I know ill miss my ring

I think that’s really cute! I used to do that with the first ring my fiance gave me for the first Christmas we were together. However the ring is kind of big and can only fit on my left middle finger. I used to put it on the ring finger and see how it looked. Trust me, the real engagement ring will look A WHOLE LOT PRETTIER :))

I do it. My boyfriend doesn’t care. I have one 2ct CZ halo he said he basically used as inspiration for my ering (still waiting but it’s in a safe haha) bc he said he couldn’t be upstaged by my pre-engagement ring ๐Ÿ˜‚

It’s a cubic zirconia ‘friendship ring’ the friend and I deliberately picked rings that looked like engagement rings haha.

 

So if I happen to be feeling particularly smushy I pop it onto my left hand XD don’t think the bf has seen me thankfully :3

I used to do it all the time!! Just like you, I’ve been together with my SO for quite a while but I know I’m going to be waiting for a couple more years because we’re still 22/23 and still in college. I’ve stopped doing it since we went ring browsing because it was making me too excited/anxious. Now, I just figure, it’ll happen when it’s meant to be! I’m keeping my ring finger vacant until it does!!!

I work in a store that sells jewelry and after closing the other night there was a ring on the wrong shelf that belonged in another part of the store… I may or may not have put it on my ring finger just to see. It’s hard to resist!

Okay now I dont feel so weird!! I do it with this white topaz solitaire I wear on my right hand all the time >.< On new years eve I was playing with it at work and accidentally forgot it was on my left hand until I was eating dinner at SO moms house later that night. I think she saw it because she had this look lol I quickly slipped it back on the other hand without her seeing, but I know she saw it on the left hand first!!
