I have a gorgeous e-ring in white gold with a 1.5 ct sapphire and emerald accents. I love it and it fits perfectly on my left ring finger (size 9). (Bad camera pic below)
I’m getting a beautiful titanium wedding band that goes with my FI’s wedding band.
Because titanium is harder than white gold, and because my dominant (right) hand fingers are going to have more chances to damage a ring, I’m considering wearing my rings on different hands. I’m wondering if it would make more sense to order the wedding band in in size for my right hand, since my ring fingers differ in size (my dominant hand is almost a full size larger), knowing that the tougher metal would withstand more abuse. Titanium rings pretty much can’t be resized, so I need to order my wedding band to fit the hand I will wear it on.
Am I completely crazy? Should I resize the e-ring for the right hand and wear my wedding band on the correct finger? Should I wear them together even if they will rub and not quite go together?
I love my ering so I don’t want to put it away entirely.

I don’t see anything wrong with wearing your wedding band on your right hand and keeping the engagement ring on your left hand.
My engagement ring is sapphire and I chose to move the engagement ring to my right hand and have the wedding band on my left.

I don’t really know. I’m in the same sitaution and I’m very curious to what other bees have to say. I’m considering wearing my band on my right hand but I’m kind of torn between that or getting a custom band made for my ering. Whatever you decide I would love to see pics!

What about getting a spacer ?

I’ve learned that splitting the e-ring and wedding band is pretty common, I just never noticed before. There are several woman at my work that do this.
I would have your engagement ring resized to fit your right hand and wear you wedding band on the left.

I voted before I read your story…OOPS! I think you should wear your band on the left and e-ring on the right. That way people know you are married from the band. if you were to do it the other way around it would look weird. If you just had e-ring on the left you would look “engaged”. I’d want everyone to know I am married!!!

I had asked the same kind of question here before only different is the left right wedding band and right for engagement.
Im happy to do so coz it suit my needs. I’m a lefty so it will decrease the chance of damaging my ering. But I did confused people when they saw the ering on the right, they saw it but kinda not knowing if I’m engaged for real or not overall the norm is on thr left.
But whatever u like, overall it’s your rings, you only need to answer to yourself.

@TheLadyK: Okay, so this is out of topic but when I saw this thread, it reminded me of Gossip Girl because Blair wears her engagement ring on her right hand after she got married.

I usually wear my Engagement Ring on my left and my wedding band on my right. I have no problem with it. Do whatever makes you most comfortable.

Normally I would say wear your wedding band on your left hand and your engagement ring on your right….BUT (Wholly wow I love love love your wedding band) sense you are right hand dominant, and your engament ring is so beautiful and perfectly fit to your ring finger I say wear the wedidng band on your right hand, it looks like it could handle a few good beatings!! Another idea…and if your Fiance is okay with it…get a very dainty delicate plain band (cheap even, theres some beautiful very well priced bands out there) in a matching metal to your engament ring to wear as your set on your left hand and your wedding band on your right hand. And on those day’s you don’t feel like wearing your beautiful bling, sports, outdoor activities, manual labor, throw that beautiful wedding band on to your left hand and just rock it!!

I have a thing my Engagement Ring is white gold soiltaire on a 2mm band. My wedding band is titanium, Fiance and I had tem custom made to match. I plan on wearing both on my left hand. I do worry about rubbing but I plan to just keep a eye on it and if it really does become a issue I will wear my Engagement Ring on my right hand or see about getting it reset in something else. I love that my bands dont match I dont like how matchy matchy ring sets look anyway.

Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts, I’m getting the sense that it doesn’t really matter and I can do anything I want, without terribly confusing people. (Maybe a little confusing, but not terrible)
@Whitanella: I have wanted one of those Fairy rings for *years* I think its just beautiful and really special. I was over the moon when Fiance said “Lets look at that titanium ring place you like for wedding bands” and he picked these two. Matching, but not quite matching, a set that goes together. Kind of like us. Getting a little plain band to sit with the e-ring might be a possibility. Fiance doesn’t care what I do with my rings. Considering how little jewelry either of us wear regularly, I could toss both rings on a necklace and call it a day and he wouldn’t mind.
@axeyourmakeupkit: Thank you for the suggestion of a spacer, I hadn’t thought about that! My concern is that to get a spacer that will make my wedding band sit flat on my finger, plus the 5mm band… That is a lot of ring on even my long fingers. I don’t think I’d be comfortable with metal almost to my knuckle.

My wedding ring is titanium and my ering is gold and I tried wearing them together and they rubbed and pinched terribly. So now I wear ering on the right hand and wedding ring on the left and it’s perfect for me!
I wouldn’t suggest resizing your perfectly fitting ring just so you can wear it with another ring when you’re not even sure if it will be comfortable.

Ohh, I like the idea of getting a little stacker band to wear with your ering on your left hand and wearing the wedding ring on your right. I LOVE the band you chose! It’s so different and pretty!
