I don’t really believe that it is bad luck, but I do find it odd. To each her own though.

Bad luck for you?  Nope.  What she chooses to do with her ring set shouldn’t affect you at all.


It’s an inanimate object.  Relationships should be able to withstand an inanimate object, regardless of who wears what when.

If she wants to that’s her business…

I probably would have worn my wedding band at-least one day (knowing myself) had it not arrived the morning of my wedding day! lol 

you only get one life so might as well enjoy it haha

It’s a piece of jewelry. The engagement ring and separate wedding band is a modern construct. Who cares?

Not bad luck. It’s just jewelry. Some cultures have different ideas surrounding rings (including not having them at all) and it doesn’t impact the marriage at all. If she wants to wear them I think it’s fine.

My Ering has been fitting a little looser lately because of the cold but if I were to wear my complete set, the slight increase in thickness of the overall set makes it fit better. Could be that, don’t lose any sleep over it lol.

I honesty don’t understand what the big deal is. I’m not engaged yet but I love the look of stacked rings and I plan to wear anniversary bands with my engagement ring. I can definitely see how that coukd be misconstrued into people thinking I’m wearing a wedding band but I really don’t care.

I’m with you OP. I think this is strange. True they are just an piece of jewellery but I think it’s odd. Not as if I think only married or engaged people should be able to wear rings on that finger or anything but I find it strange she’d wear the wedding band before she’s married.

I do. In my culture engagement ring is the wedding band itself. If you’ve been proposed with a diamond ring, you stack them together and wear on your right hand. We swap them to left when married.

I wouldn’t wear the actual wedding band that will be exchanged in the ceremony prior to the day because I like the ritual and symbolism of the exchange, but I couldn’t care less what other people do and I doubt I’d even notice what’s on their finger.

Maybe she’s just excited…. I wouldn’t do this, but I can see why she might want to. I was so excited about my engagement ring that I tried it on many times before my actual proposal lol. I’m waiting closer to my wedding date to get my band because I know I’ll be excited and want to wear it too.
