    I’ve never heard of this.  Can you talk to your parents about it, or will they be upset that your Fiance told you?  Maybe have your Fiance ask them what type of ring it is (out of curiousity).

    Hm..if it’s a ring within the family, perhaps the stone can be reset into something else?  My dad has my mother’s rings but didn’t offer them to my Fiance b/c I think my dad wants to cast them into two rings for both my sister and I which is perfectly fine with me as right hand rings.

    Maybe its a ring that they are getting sized for your old or blue or something. I wouldnt be weirded out before you know whats going on for sure. I can see why you feel the way that they do, but They are probably thinking that they are doing something awesome that is going to make you happy. idk thats all I got lol

    Maybe it’s part of a set and a fashion jewelry type thing rather than anything like a wedding or engagement ring. I wouldn’t worry about it unless you don’t trust your parents to be tactful.

    I don’t think that its odd. Maybe they are gifting you a matching set of jewelry to wear for your wedding day, not necessary a “wedding ring”. I honestly don’t see what is wrong with them gifting you a ring to wear on your right hand. I think its a very sweet gesture, honestly.

    “I just know my Fiance would be hurt if there were any other rings on my fingers on our wedding day but the one’s he’s given me.”

    I’m curious to why that is? I can understand any other rings on your left ring finger, but many brides wear a “something old” or “something blue” ring on their right hand. (I wore my late grandmother’s ring on my right hand for my “something old”.)

    @abbyful: I agree with this. I wear a ring every day that I got my 16th birthday. You better believe that ring will be on my finger on my wedding day. I also hope to wear a ring of my grandmother’s to honor my late grandfather. 

    To the OP, no offense here, but I don’t think your parents are being weird here, I think your Fiance is. I see no reason why you shouldn’t wear another ring on your wedding day. Now, if you choose not to for whatever reason, I don’t see anything wrong with that, its your choice. But, the issue here in your original post is whether its weird for your parents to gift you a ring, and I don’t think thats weird at all. I wouldn’t discuss this with your parents since you aren’t supposed to know, I’d try to reason with your fiance and get down to the bottom of why he feels its necessary for you to only wear your engagement ring/wedding ring.
