I personally don’t believe in any superstitions really.

I guess you could call this a superstition, but I don’t believe in multiple wedding bands. I think stacks are great and I plan to do it, but I will have one ring that sits closest to my heart at all times.

I feel like it should be a plain band to be practical, but also want sparkle!

Does that count? haha

Edit: I think they broke up because they were 16 and trying to get married, not because of the ring lol

How long was his grandmother married?  If she had a long and happy marriage for 50 years with that ring on her finger, I think the jinx is not the ring. 🙂  The ring has proven itself!

It’s not a superstition, but I have a holy terror of rings made of things like tungsten.  My mother once almost had to have her rings cut off because of swelling in her fingers when I was at an impressionable age.  I just remember how horrifying her finger was before she managed to get the rings off after icing them for over an hour, with her panicking but needing to wait for my dad to get home from work because she couldn’t drive like that and there was no 911 service in our area at that time.  The thought of a ring that couldn’t be cut off in an emergency?  No no no.  Give me gold – it’s timeless and pretty, yes, but also soft enough to be cut in half when needed without any particularly special tools.

They broke up because they were 16!

I am not at all superstitious about rings.

I don’t believe they hold bad juju, or even good juju for that matter. 

I have heard many superstitions though, like it is bad luck to let someone else try on your ring (apparently your wedding will never happen and the person who tried it on will still all your good fortune AND your FI/husband),  it is bad luck to buy a ring on a Friday, it is bad luck to ever remove your ring, etc. Again, don’t believe any of it 🙂

I am slightly superstitious. I’ve never put a ring on my engagement finger even for sizing until I actually became engaged, because I thought it could be bad luck!
