Do you ever find it uncomfortable to wear your ring(s) on the hand that you write with? I’m a lefty and have always worn rings on my right hand. We don’t have an engagement ring, so this won’t come up until the wedding.

@mightywombat: I’ve thought about it before. I’m kind of nervous about when he actually proposes. I’m sure I’ll love the ring, but I imagine it feeling so AWKWARD.

Yeah… I am constantly banging into things because I’m always doing things with my left hand… I think I’ve kind of gotten used to it though.
Poor e-ring… it’s deff taken a beating. 🙂

Mine doesn’t bother me at all, but that could be because before I was engaged, I wore a ring on the middle finger of my third hand.
My biggest problem is that when I’m trying to do something (like type on the computer, I’m not even kidding), my ring catches my eye and I get all distracted! She’s just so pretty…

I voted “not at all”. My hand felt unusually heavy for the first week or so, but I got used to that, and now my hand feels totally incomplete without the ring. I had to have it resized last month (lost 20 pounds, ring was coming very close to just sliding off my finger) and during the week it was at the jeweller’s, I would keep freaking out that I had lost it before I remembered where it was. So after day 2 of sporadic mini panickings, I started wearing a small elastic band on my finger so my brain would stop messing with me.

It bugs me a lot, even 10 years later. In retrospect, I wish I had chosen my rings much more carefully. I’ve spent a lot of money trying to find something comfortable and lower profile. I’m hard on my rings. Not to mention my left hand ring finger is a full size smaller than my right hand ring finger. I can’t even switch rings from hand to hand comfortably. I wear a plain band at home and even that bugs me sometimes.

I’m right handed but I wear large rings on my right hand. I’ve never really noticed–you get used to it!

I have a smaller ring (1.3 carat), so maybe that’s why, but it was a pretty effortless transition for me. Once I woke up with scratches on my face from where I had dragged my ring across it in my sleep, but other than that it’s been fine :).

My e-ring doesn’t bother me at all. It might have when I first got it, but I can’t remember it being a problem other than accidentally banging it against things at first. I take my ring off when I’m doing something that could damage it (cooking, working out, sleeping, etc.), so I’m comfortable with or without it on.
I actually plan on getting as small and plain a wedding band as possible, so that I won’t have to worry about it getting in the way or taking it off!

Thanks for all your responses! It’s interesting to hear people’s different feelings about it.
