I’ve started wearing mine on my right hand. I think pregnancy changed my finger size a little, so it feels more comfortable there now. 

ETA: I always wear my wedding band on the left. It’s just the engagement ring I move around depending on how I’m feeling each day.

I wear it on the left hand only. For one thing my finger sizes are different on both hands, so it only fits on my left ring finger. Also, that is the traditional place to wear a wedding set where I live. My right hand is for other fun rings if I choose.

My ring is sized for my left hand, it doesn’t fit over the second knuckle on my right hand.

I’m a violinist so I wear mine on my right hand. Many string players do as it feels very uncomfortable to wear anything on our left hand when we play, for some even a watch. Our left hand fingers have to move a lot and quickly.

Uk bee here – left is traditional but I know a few people who wear on the right as is traditional in their culture.

My right hand ring finger is a full ring size bigger than left, so I couldn’t wear my wedding set on my right hand unless I’d have it sized up.

I’ve tried, but my I’m right-handed and tend to knock my ring and catch it on things. So it stays on the left hand.

Left hand. That’s the tradition around here. I can’t wear my ring on my right hand becase my right ring finger is way too big. Once I squeezed it on there and practically had a panic attack trying to get it off. LOL.

There isn’t a massive difference in the sizes of my ring fingers, so I could probably wear my engagment and wedding rings on either finger. That said, I mainly wear them on my left hand, as that’s the local tradition, and anyway, I’m right handed, and would probably bang them into stuff all the time if I was to wear them on my dominant hand. What can I say, I’m damn clumsy 😀

Left hand only for me. I’m also in the US, so it’s traditional. But, also, they don’t fit my RH ring finger, which is a larger size.

My ring fingers are the same size, but I wear mine primarily on my left hand. The only time I’ve switched to my right hand is when I’m doing something that could either get my ring dirty or catch it on things, since I’m left handed and it’s a fairly high setting.

I wear on the left since that’s more traditional here.  But I’m a lefty, so when I’m doing something messy or potentially messy with my left hand, I’ll either take it off entirely (cooking, say) or swap to the right temporarily (bathroom, sigh).  It fits both about the same.  I actually wondered if that’s why a friend of mine didn’t understand my choice to remove my rings frequently – she’s a righty and it would rarely be in her way!

I wear my e-ring on my left hand and my wedding bqnd on my right. I couldn’t find a band that I loved with my e-ring and didn’t want to go through the hassle of custom band along with wedding planning. I have an antique wedding band I found on etsy that I love the look of and a super cheap stainless band set (my DH has a matching one) that we got off Amazon. The cheap ones we got bc there was a mess up with his band order and I was not sure if it would come in time for the wedding, so I found some on Amazon Prime that I thoght would photograph well just in case. This is the one I usually wear, it’s super comfortable. DH has a collection of non-expensive wedding band he wears and his nice one is in a case (his choice) since he is really bad at keeping track of small things. He can’t believe I wear my ering every day, but for me, it’s safest on my hand and is bound to get misplaced if I take it off!
