I want to wear my engagement ring alone…

I think they look great together! However I get what you’re saying. I have an antique ring from the 1940s and I know that no matter what band I get, I won’t like the way they look together/it will take away from the uniqueness of my e-ring. My plan is to wear my band on my left hand wear my e-ring on my right (not sure if that’s a “normal” thing to do? but I don’t really care lol)

I’m in the same predicament! I love how my engagement ring looks by itself. I tried on billions of bands and couldn’t find anything that I thought actually enhanced the look. I wound up buying a really cool band that I love on its own. It looks okayish with my e-ring, but something about it is just a bit off, like the e-ring and band are competing with each other. But I absolutely LOVE the look of both rings as standalone rings.

I think what I’m gonna do is move the engagement ring over to my right hand after the wedding so that the band will be worn alone on my left ring finger and e-ring alone on my right. Only problem is my right ring finger is a fat sausage finger so I’ll have to get the e-ring resized to fit it, which is annoying.

I wear my Ering on my right hand and my wedding band on my left hand… wouldn’t have it any other way.

Greeks wear their wedding rings on the right hand. I’m planning to keep my engagement ring on my left hand and my wedding band on my right hand to follow tradition and to also have my engagement ring be alone because I like how it looks.

I never got a wedding band, I wear mine alone. 🙂
