Do you find that your ring sometimes gets in the way when doing daily tasks, like writing (for example)? I find that when I write, my ring manages to spin a little and drag on the page, even though it is sized correctly. Maybe it’s the way my hand moves, I don’t know. And sometimes it will get caught in the rings of a spiral notebook (but we all know how annoying it is to write in those books, ring or no ring, lol). Many lefties wear watches and bracelets on the right wrist only, just for this reason. Rings are different, though.
It doesn’t get in the way so much for other things, but I’m wondering if you have this problem? Am I the only one?

I’ve never had this problem, mind you, I haven’t written in any spiral notebooks in a while. I can imagine that would cause a problem. I’m one of the lefties that still wears my watches and bracelets on the left though so maybe I’m just used to it.

Fellow lefty here! I can’t say I’ve ever had my ering interfere with writing and I don’t use spiral notebooks. It may be they way you write…I’ve noticed lefties tend to either turn their paper/notebook/etc. to write or they turn their hand…my dad’s a lefty too and he’s a hand turner and I’m a page turner lol. When I wore a watch, I wore it on my right hand, and bracelets I usually wear on my left. 🙂

I’m a lefty and I have a similar problem. The way I write causes my halo to drag on the paper so I tend to rotate it right, so it’s facing my middle finger so I don’t damage it while writing. It was really annoying at first but I’ve learned to live with it.

Haven’t used a spiral notebook in a long time, but does it matter because 1/2 the time you’re writing on the left side so wouldn’t the same thing happen to righties when they write on the left side (back of the paper)?
It doesn’t get in my way, but I have a callus at the top of my palm where the rings hit when I bend my finger. None of the right handed people I know have one, so I think it’s because I use my left hand more? Or maybe it’s just me.

Yep, this happens a lot when I write. I also get paranoid about damaging my rings because I use my left hand for everything, so I’m always taking them off!

I don’t, but I thought about this very carefully when I was choosing my ring. My stand-in I wore while searching for a “real” ring sits 6mm high and I found this was too high for me, I knocked it all the time. My forever ring only sits 4mm high and I never bash it. How long have you had it? Maybe you will get used to it.

I don’t have any problems with writing or anything. Ive always thought being a lefty is really lucky for engagement rings because you don’t wear some watch right next to your gorgeous ring. Instead your e-ring can stand out on its own or have a pretty bracelet next to it instead of a watch. (Something abt putting something so functional next to something so pretty and with such meaning seems to detract from the e-ring to me)

I’m a lefty and haven’t had any problems. My ring has no pointy or catchy parts though.
The first week I had my ring though, it was hard to write because I kept staring at my ring and not at what I was writing!

@musical-lady: Yes, I’m a lefty as well and I’ve noticed it gets caught occasionally in spiral notebooks and such. It’s got a halo and split shank and I bang it around sometimes…I wouldn’t say excessively, but enough to be noticed.
However as a lefty I can be quite klutzy and am used to banging into things or getting any type of ring caught on things 🙂

I’m not a lefty but I live in a country where the wedding and e-rings are worn on the right hand. It was annoying to begin with when I wrote but I’ve eventually got used to it, I seem to swivel it subconsciously.

I put sometimes because while I’m right handed my right hand ring will do the same thing….it will spin sometimes while I’m typing or writing and drives me crazy. My knuckles are big, so the ring can’t really be sized down any further or I won’t be able to get it on or off.

@TKG83: Hey neighbour! I’m young and still in school at the moment so I still use spiral notebooks on a regular basis. Perhaps I should switch to a notepad.
@VegasRVAbride: My dad is a lefty too! We are both hand turners – he told me to do that when I was learning to write, and of course I was only using pencils in elementary school. That’s why I said the notebooks only sometimes cause problems.
@NovaRising: Ooh, glad my ring doesn’t have a halo! Can’t imagine what that would be like, lol. I do have the problem with the ring dragging, though, so maybe I will turn the stone to the inside or just turn it up when I write. I’m not worried about the diamond, obviously, but sometimes I’m worried about wrecking the setting. I doubt that would happen though, since it’s platinum, but I still think about it, lol.
@Audrey2: Nice ring! I didn’t pick my ring, but I don’t think I would have chosen anything different than what my FH chose for me, to be honest. I’ve had it for 4 months now…
@Shkragoldfish: I guess you’re right!
I don’t have a whole lot of issues with my ring while doing other tasks – I have a lot of stuff made for lefties, like scissors and knives. I just think that I’m going to ruin the ring sometimes 🙁

@Cummins59: My ring is princess cut so maybe the sharper corners are the problem. I don’t know. I don’t wear other rings besides that one so I can’t compare.
@DaisyBelle: I’m klutzy as well, I think that’s just the way I am though 🙂
@Ms_Midori: My FH is from Serbia, where wearing the rings on the right hand is also the custom. I am getting used to the ring being there but it’s still annoying sometimes!

Yup, it’s one of the reasons why I didn’t want an ornate ring, any pave, etc. My fingers press together when I write, and if I’ve written a lot in a day my ring will cause an indent. Since I carry things in my left hand, I always worry about warping the ring too.
