A wedding band on the left means you are married, right? So why would they ask her if she was divorced? lol I just think some people are confused by the whole seperating the rings thing. My cousin did right after she got married and my family was all weirded out, I will admit I was too. It wasn’t until I came on here that I learned that tons of girls do it too! Anyway I would wear the band on the left because thats what signifies you are married.

Yeah, their question makes no sense to me.  When I got divorced, I stopped wearing both my wedding ring and my engagement ring.  A wedding ring on the left hand (with or without an engagement ring) signifies that you are married.

I had the same problem with mine!  They wouldnt sit flush together – we searched everywhere!  If it bothers you alot, you can always have one made to fit with it.  Or you can have your diamond reset (which is what we ended up doing) – but I dont think its a big deal to wear your engagement ring on the right and the band on the left…alot of women just wear their bands anyways – either way it will look pretty 🙂

I don’t know if that helps any but here in Germany we wear our wedding bands on the right hand (because it’s supposed to be closer to the heart). But since we don’t wear engagement and wedding band together on one hand (engagement ring is on the left hand) we don’t realls have those kind of questions.

I wear my band on the left hand and my ering on the right. It’s startled a few people, only because they’d see one first and jump to a conclusion that I either ditched my ering or wasn’t wearing a band. You just have to be patient with them when they shout “Where’s your ring?!?!”

I’m planning to wear my e-ring on my right hand and my wedding band on my left.

Some people have commented that it’s strange. One person said that I was being disrespectful to my FI because I am moving my e-ring to my right hand. I would understand their feelings a little bit better if I were going to put me e-ring in a drawer and never wear it again, but I’m still going to be wearing it every day!

My FI loves the idea, especially because we got to design an intricate wedding band which I could never have worn with my e-ring (too thick and styles don’t mesh well). I can’t wait until my ring arrives from my etsy jeweler!! It should be here in the next week or two!

Here’s a pic of the CAD drawing!

I plan on wearing my E-ring on my left hand and my wedding band on my Right hand.

I love my e-ring on my left hand and it just looks funny on my right hand. not to mention it doesnt fit well!

I would have to get a custom band that would cost more then my e-ring to fit and we just dont wanna do that!

I’ve always heard that if you split your set, e-ring goes on right, wedding band on left.  That’s how I plan to do it – my ring is a split shank, so rather than try to find something fit, i’m just going to separate them.

I am def in the minority but I wear my E-ring on my left and my wedding band on my right.  I think that when people look at my left hand I want them to see the amazing ring my husband gave me.  I think that it is entirely a personal decision.

@Edina: haha, do you shout back, “IT’S RIGHT HERE!”?

I am separating mine too, and I don’t think anyone would ask… a lot of women wear only a wedding band on their left hand anyway, it seems.

I wear my band a lot during the day (as I don’t work ouside of the home), I shower and I even sleep in my band. On my wedding day, I figured out that my e-ring wouldn’t fit on my right hand! So, I just wore my ring just like always and my husband slid the band in front of the e-ring. I later changed it for pictures. If I’m going out somewhere, I will wear both of my rings. I feel naked without my e-ring! lol.
