I’m lucky enough to have two wedding sets–one diamond one with the original e-ring that my Fiance proposed with, and a moissanite set he gave me for my birthday. I plan to wear my moissanite set daily and save the diamond one for more special occasions or when the mood strikes every now and then due to its durability (six prongs; yellow gold so I don’t have to worry about redipping the rhodium, etc). I would really like to wear my moissanite set during the ceremony since it is the one I will be looking at every day, though we are planning to use the diamond set on the left hand for the ceremony, with the wedding band as the one he puts on my finger. Where should I put my engagement ring if my right ring finger already has my moissanite ring? Also should I hold off on wearing the wedding band that comes with the moissanite ring, or should I just wear it during the ceremony?
I have posted both my sets quite a few times on this site already, but I’ll include a picture here as well for reference. Left is the diamond set that will go on the left ring finger; right is the moissanite set:

lol so confusing.
The one he puts on your finger at your wedding will be the one that sticks in your heart as YOUR WEDDING RING. No matter which one you choose – whatever he puts on in the ceremony will always feel like THE RING. So whichever one you feel is the nicer/more important set — use that. and then use the other for -whenever. –
If it were me, I’d leave the moissanite at home, and just use the one he proposed with and that band for the ceremony.
If you absolutely MUST bring both – perhaps slide the engagement ring on your index or middle finger – or pinky – its just a short walk down the aisle and then it will be right back on your left hand.

If you wear the moissanite set on your right just wear the diamond e ring on the left and have the band placed on top then switch them around right after ceremony. I think u should wear the whole moissanite set on the right but that’s just my opinion. Good luck. Both are gorg by the way!

Could you have it on the ring pillow with the wedding band and have him put them both on you at the same time? I know it isn’t traditional, but it seems like the best option to me. Unless you are wearing the diamond engagement ring on your left hand already during the ceremony. Anyway, both seem like good options to me.

I personally would only wear one or the other set just as I don’t like mixing my golds and I feel like two rings that are so eye catching would be busy looking. Just my personal opinion!

If you are saving your diamond for special occasions, I can’t think of a more special occasion than your wedding. I would leave the moissanite at home, wear your diamond on your right hand, then move it back to your left ring finger after he places your wedding band.

thanks! I was thinking of just putting it on an alternate finger (maybe middle) as one option. sorry for the confusion!! 🙂

that’s a great idea! I was thinking about that but I wasn’t sure if it would look backwards if I did it that way.

+1000. The only wedding ring will be the one he puts on your finger.
I have two wedding bands. One is the heirloom band that matches my e-ring, the other is a diamond eternity band that I wanted instead of the plain band. Well a few weeks before the wedding , had the plain band sized and then I had my e-ring and the eternity band soldered. I decided I didn’t want to take off my e-ring The day of, so DH put the plain band on my hand. That’s my wedding ring. I don’t look at it any other way. The eternity band just seems like an extension of my e-ring now. Maybe you will see it different or feel the same about both rings, but for me, the other hand has absolutely no symbolism to me.

great suggestion! I think our concern is that it will draw out the ceremony unnecessarily since it will be hot next month and its outdoors. That honestly would be my preference but I think a lot of people would find it odd.
