So I have 2 engagement rings…I have one that me and my FI picked out, designed and made fabulous. I also have one that is considered a family heirloom. My Fiance asked with the heirloom ring which is an AMAZING piece, but its kind of too much! (This is why we went to just “look” at other options and then what ultimately got me my second ring) W/O sounding ungrateful the heirloom ring kind of hurts after wearing it awhile so I’ve gotten into the habit of wearing my beautiful cushion cut ring that I love. Now we have our engagement pics coming up I’m wondering which ring to wear. It also makes me wonder which ring I’ll wear for the rest of my life and which one I will wear on the big day. I know this is kind of weird issue but I have no idea what to do. In hindsight I shouldn’t have gotten the second ring, but I really like it!

It sounds like your heirloom is not an everyday ring and should be saved for special occasions if it hurts you and is a bit much. Could you wear your new ring on your left hand and your heirloom on your right? Or would that be too blingy?

You are luck to have this problem! 🙂 Here’s my opinion:
The heirloom ring should be worn for special occassions b/c it hurts you and is therefore not practical. Wear the ring your Fiance got you for everyday.
For the engagement pics- I think you could switch it up and get some pics with both if you want (or as troubled suggested possibly one on each hand).
For the wedding- tough call. I’d be tempted to say wear the heirloom b/c I assume it has some sentimental signifcance… I supopse you could wear one on each hand for the wedding too.

Thanks ladies. My heirloom ring really is a “special occassion” ring. I’m actually pretty nervous when I wear it! I don’t see myself ever wearing both at anyone time. I not to blingy of a person and that would probably be waaaay too much! The more I think on it, I’ll probably just do the engagement pics with the Fiance bought ring, we’re doing it out in the harbor on a boat so I’d be worried the whole time that my other ring would fall off into the water!! Wedding Day I’ll probably wear the heirloom…still not 100% sure.
