intertwangled:  no its not taboo to wear a ring on your right hand. if you were wearing it as an engagement ring it would probably make your bf feel pretty lousy though. I think you might just be feeling guilty or associating the taboo-ness with the fact that you made this ring “in the meantime” of waiting. Which is not a bad thing, dont get me wrong, but were you trying to fill a void where the e-ring would be? 

 

the ring is gorgeous btw. Im all for colored moissy.

intertwangled:  I get it.  Instead of encouraging him though by buying a moissanite, why don’t you just have a straight up conversation about ring expectations?  The size of your moissanite and previous engagement should be irrelevant to your current SO.  Just talk to him about it?

intertwangled:  thats ok. I was the same way. I had an assortment of CZ rings to see what shape i liked. And thats how i got to love pears. When i first started looking at e-rings with the Fiance, i wanted a round, floral halo. White gold, white diamond. And now I am rocking a crazy beautiful pink with rose gold halo pear. 

ALSO. I THINK SECRETLY EVERY BEE ON HERE HAS A LAUREN CONRAD ENGAGEMENT RING PIC

Certainly not taboo!  Wear what makes you happy!

However, I do have to say that I get where you are coming from.  I inherited my grandma’s engagement ring, and the one time I wore it (on my right hand, no less!), I got asked if I was getting married.  I’m really not much of a jewelry person, so I more or less put it in a drawer and forgot about it.  When my partner and I started talking about getting engaged and I started researching rings, I got more interested in all things diamond–including the one I had.  But I didn’t want to start wearing my grandma’s ring for fear of the questions it might draw when people suddenly saw a ring in my finger.  Now that I am officially engaged, I figure I can start wearing it as a RHR from time to time without worrying that people will get the wrong idea.

I wore a clauddah on my left middle finger until Fiance proposed.  It’s a ring and it’s no an engagement ring.  It’s a piece of jewelry.

I wanted to purchase a ring for myself in the meantime!  I do a pageant every year which disallows engagement or marriage in order to participate.  I had a light Morganite and rise gold ring set as a gift to myself to remember my goals every time I look at it. My SO thought it was a great idea and his only concern was “topping” my right hand ring.  My ring also helped him realize he wanted rose gold for his own band! So hopefully I will win my pageant this year so he can propose.  I will use my right hand ring as  family heirloom because my family does not have any.
