I literally just went through this! I got a gorgeous right hand ring (bezel solitaire in rose gold). My wedding rings are white gold with an oval diamond. I immediately loved my RHR….but then I started second guessing if it was too weird to wear along with my other solitaire (even though they were quite different). I did a poll on here and over 80% thought it look great and I should keep it BUT it was still nagging me and I ended up sending it back today πŸ™ I just didn’t feel comfortable with it. BUT if you have a three stone engagement ring then I think it would look totally fine to have a solitaire on your right. And if that was my situation I would have kept my RHR ring too. Sorry for my rambling but long story short I think it would look great!

I will be totally honest, I have seen solitaires like that on women and my first thought is, that was her mom’s or her grandma’s ring.  It would not occur to me to wear a very solitaire type ring on my right hand.

It’s not wrong.  There really aren’t any ring police, and it won’t go on your permanent record!  πŸ™‚

Now marie0415’s ring, to me, being that it was bezel set, reminded me a bit more of a fine jewelry fashion ring, rather than bridal. 

But you do what you want.  People here often say no one really looks at others’ rings.  I guess I’m the odd one, I look at everyone’s rings when I’m out and about.  Not in a stare at it way (well, okay, there was that one 3-4 carat diamond…..), but I do look.  It’s enjoyable to me.  I recently saw a pear shaped double halo cluster ring that took my breath away.  It was so so pretty and fit the lady’s had so nicely.

newbeegirl :  “is it strange to have an anniversary ring that isn’t a diamond/gemstone band?” — That was just a marketing gimmick. Someone said “these diamond/gemstone bands have a pretty good profit margin, how can we sell more of them?” and someone else said “idk, call them Anniversary Bands and act like that’s a thing?” And Anniversary Bands were born. Before that, any ring bought for an anniversary was an anniversary ring. 

I would probably assume either it was your original engagement ring before you switched to the set on your left hand, or that it was an heirloom. But who cares? How is your life going to be affected if someone makes an incorrect assumption about your jewelry? If you love the ring, get it and have fun.

I’m wearing a solitaire on my right hand now, so obviously I think it’s fine. Most people don’t think about jewelry other than “oh, sparkly”.

newbeegirl :  Follow your heart! I love seeing Bees make their own rules and rocking what makes them happy. Personally I think solitaires look best with bands though, as a stand alone ring sometimes they look a bit lonely.

newbeegirl : Haha you definitely aren’t! I’m still thinking about the Art Deco star but then I was also thinking about a two stone bezel as well. Hopefully you’re happy with whatever you decide to do. And honestly, I don’t think I’d bat an eye if it were anyone else wearing two solitaires. I just felt it didn’t look right on me. This is the next one I’m considering…

newbeegirl :  I do it!! My RHR (30th bday gift) is a 3/4 carat heart diamond solitaire set in a bezel. My ering is a 1.51 cushion solitaire set in prongs. I just happen to prefer solitaires for myself, for big purchases!!
