All the rings I wear on my right hand are bigger than my engagement ring. I like dramatic, large jewelry so that’s what I buy.

My RHR is SIGNIFICANTLY bigger than my ering. We’d have to drop a good 5 or 6 figures for it to even compete on a size scale. 🙂 My ering is a diamond but my RHR is a lab sapphire. I don’t wear them at the same time as often any more but I still whip them out from time to time. 

If you don’t care for the look don’t force yourself to like it. 🙂 It was a little odd for me at first but the feeling only lasted a moment and now I love wearing them together.

I took these on the same day but I’m sure you can imagine what they look like next to eachother.

mine are generally bigger, but i don’t wear them every day, so i did that on purpose.  i prefer something a little more subtle and understated for daily wear (like my ering), and bring out the bigger stuff on special occasions to wear on my right hand.  (i use “special occasions” loosely…date night can be considered a special occasion.)

To me, the RHR concept is interchangeable with the cocktail ring concept. And most cocktail rings are supposed to be a bit in-your-face!

the e-ring is, for many people, a classic, timeless, a part of you. Your RHR is a great way to show your wild side, etc.

in short, its not weird to have a RHR larger than your e-ring. There are basically no rules about RHRs, they are for expressing whatever it is you happen to feel that day 🙂

Oh yeah, I also don’t believe RHR/cocktail rings have to be expensive now, just because our e-rings are often not cheap.

They could really be anything… Whatever you feel like wearing. Doesnt even have to “go” that much with your e-ring. JMO.

I have a pretty traditional ering. However, I’m a HUGE fan of funky jewelry, and I’m always wearing a funky ring on my right hand. It changes daily!

Here’s the ring I’m wearing today. It’s mother of pearl and jasper on sterling silver. Very weird and kinda ugly, but I really like it. haha

My new ruby. I pair it with my eternity ring; it’s a different look than my engagement ring set so it’s hard to compare size.

I have a RHR that is the same ctw as my engagement ring, but I feel like it looks bigger because its a ton of teeny tiny stones. I’d never worry about your right hand ring overpoewring your engagement ring, just as long as it doesn’t look like another engagement ring, unless its like a grandparents or something…thats different.
