@Missus_LLC:  I was actually thinking about doing that. We will see what I like best when I get my band.  It ultimatly is your decision because you are the one wearing it 🙂

I wear my e-ring with my wedding band over it e-ring closer to palm if that is what you mean. I do it becuase my e-ring is slightly large on me now and I don’t want it to fall off. Ever since I started wearing my e-ring I have been looking to see what way people place them and it appears (at least in my circle) that about 25% or so wear it that way due to loose-ness, bulk etc.

I just liked how my rings looked with my wedding band on the “outside”. I’m one of the first to be married and my mother never wore her rings so i didn’t know there was a “right” way.  I tried both and went with the one i liked.  Besides, I wore my e ring for the ceremony and then he put the wedding band on next to it, so why would i then flip them around? lol

As far as I know the Engagement Ring is a promise but the wedding band is the “real thing” so to speak, and so it should be closest to your heart.

I wear the e-ring the closest to my nails and the other two bands either closest to my palm or sandwiching the e-ring

@Missus_LLC:  in my country this is the way women wear their wedding rings, engagement ring first and then the wedding band and it symbolizes commitment seal, so to me it makes sense

Supposedly it’s put on the wedding band first because it’s closer to the heart.. then the e-ring.. So that’s what I do.

I will be wearing mine in the “proper” order, but mostly because I prefer the way my rings look that way.

I remember recently noticing that the research librarian for my discipline wore her rings in a reverse order. It seemed that she had some stacking going on and it worked for her set. It just depends on what you prefer.

I don’t think there is a “right” or a “wrong” way to wear them.  I think it is up to the bride to decide which way she likes them together.

But I will admit,I never thought of wearing the e-ring on the bottom (closest to my palm), because I guess I always had heard the saying that the wedding ring goes closest to your heart.  That is why I wore my engagement ring on my right hand during my wedding ceremony; so that my ring finger was bare and my husband could slide my wedding ring on it.  I just put the e-ring on top afterr the ceremony.

I just tried switching my e-ring to the bottom and the wedding band on top and it looked really weird to me…so I think I’ll stick with the way I’ve been wearing them.  I’d love to see pics from those of you who do it the opposite way.  Maybe it’s just my rings that look funny that way.

logically this always made more sense to me instead of band then ering

but im having two bands

regardless how the heck is he supposed to put the ring on my finger when there is more than one and it seems so confusing
