I think he should wear the ring you and he picked out and paid for for his wedding ring. If he wants to wear the other one, he can wear it on his right hand. But this is someting between the two of you that you both have to be comfortable with.

God no. The Claddagh was not bought to be his wedding ring. No and no. He has two hands, doesn’t he?!

I would NOT be okay with that.  The ring from his mom symbolizes a bond with her and maybe with his heritage, but it has nothing to do with symbolizing his bond with and commitment to you.  I think you need to put your foot down about this because frankly, it strikes me as a little weird.  Good luck!

I agree, he can totally wear it on his right hand, so why does it have to be his wedding band.  I know that claddagh rings ARE worn as wedding bands in some cultures, so I mean, if it is important to him, then maybe you can discuss it.  But if he is only doing it to please his mother, then he should explain to her that you guys have picked up bands ages ago, and that he’d love to wear it on his other hand.

I would let him know that you two picked out your rings together and you’ve already paid for his and that it’s important that he wear that one. He can always wear the cladduah on his other hand.

I agree with the others. I wouldn’t be ok with that, he can wear it on his other hand if it’s so important to him (which it obviously isn’t, if it’s been in a drawer all this time!)

I think he should wear both rings, on different fingers or hands. If he’s just realized he’d rather have a claddagh, maybe he should return the matching ring and get a new one of those for his wedding ring.
