This is my engagement ring, and I am now looking for a wedding band to match with it. I recently saw a ring enhancer that matches pretty well at a local store but it is a bit pricier than the band the seller he bought it from recommends for this ring. The recommended matching wedding band is pictured below. Also, pictured below is a similar enhacer to the one I fell in love with.
I’ve been seeing more and more posts about right hand rings. What is the purpose of these? Do they simbolize marriage too, like a wedding band? Is an enhancer too much? I feel like I would be getting two rings for my set and that may not be the most considered thing to do since all the rings we’ve liked for him are pretty inexpensive, yet I love how it looked with my engagement ring. Help! Thoughts?
I wanted to add a poll but couldn’t do it as an edit. Basically, Id’ like to know if you prefer a) just the matching wedding band (more delicate, less ostentatious), b) the ring enhancer (looks beautiful and it’s kind of a statement, different from the regular set this ring would be a part of), c) use the wedding band as a right hand ring).

For your wedding band get whatever you like that is within your budget. A lot of bees on here have stacks aNF they are lovely! I guess it depends how much bling you want on your finger.
Right hand rings, at least where I’m from, are just an excuse to wear more fun jelwery! Some countries wear their wedding rings on the right hand, but I think for most of these posts on the Bee the refer to just addituonal rings the bees love to wear! Some pepole are really into rings And other jelwery.

I think the pave band will look better than the enhancer. Right hand rings don’t symbolize marriage. They are just for fun!

get whichever one you like better on your hand. I perfer the single band, but i always prefer daintier styles. It’s yours and you have to wear it. get whichever you love the most.

MuseForever: Your ring is so beautiful! I love that type of setting, as it has beautiful bling, but also lovely, clean lines and a timeless elegance.
I totally agree with PPs: get whichever band you love the most on your hand. There’s no right or wrong way to do it.
I think both the straight band and enhancer are beautiful. And they would both look beautiful with your ring. I prefer the straight band with it because it looks like the stones in the band would compliment your ERing so well. It would be really beautiful together. If you wanted an enhancer-type look or more bling, maybe you could get two bands and put one on either side of your ERing.
I love right hand rings! For me, they are just an excuse to wear more fun jewelry that I love. It keeps life fun for someone who’s a bit ring-obsessed, like me — ha, ha!

I prefer the straight band, but I don’t like enchancers generally.
As for RHRs, agree with PPs that they’re for fun. I think Tiffany had a campaign a few years back suggesting that RHRs represent a woman’s freedom/independence/creativity or something (in ads for their celebration rings and such). I know it’s just a marketing gimmick to get you to buy more rings, but I kind of like thinking of them that way too. Like the e-ring/wedding band is steadfast and represents the love and commitment between you and your FI/DH, but then the RHR is more a reflection of you as an individual and your personality.

I prefer the straight band. The enhancer is lovely but I think it might be a bit much.
Right hand rings are just rings worn on the right hand. They can be for fashion or they can have personal meaning. There aren’t any rules for wearing jewelry on your right hand. For instance, I used to wear a sterling silver ring with a spinning instert on my right hand. That broke a year or so ago and instead I now wear my grandmother’s wedding set that she had passed down to me.

Thank you everyone!!
Trilly: TheGridMonster: longtimemrs: I think you bees are right, I will try to find a band like that to put it on my hand and compare.
amberback: mrssloan2013: BWLE: The enhancer does not look exactly like the one I liked, in person it looks more like 2 of the single bands pictured here.
Yes, it is blue nile and thank you all, I really like my ering 🙂
The funny thing is I’ve been using rings all my life, just to match my outfits, etc. or because I get into a particular style for some time, I just never knew they were called something haha. I’ll keep using different rings on the right hand when I go out or dress up, as a statement to show my personality. Right now, I only use my engagement ring.
