I ended my engagement 6 months ago. Lately I’ve been wearing my old engagment ring on my right hand. It is not a diamond; it’s a gemstone in a halo setting. So it doesn’t look inherently like an engagement ring.
Is it weird/inappropriate of me to wear it on a regular basis as a right-hand ring? I have no emotional attachment to the ring on a sentimental basis – it’s just such a pretty ring and I’m a huge jewelry fanatic.

Of course not!! As long as you are okay with it I think it is fine…after all..it’s just a piece of jewelry 🙂

I guess it is a personal choice… I wouldn’t do it- but I am sentimental like that…

I probably wouldn’t, just because I wouldn’t want a constant reminder of a previous relationship. Have you thought about taking the stone and having it put in another setting? Maybe either another ring setting or a necklace? Or maybe trading it in for something new entirely? Of course it’s totally your choice. If you feel comfortable and it doesn’t bother you then more power to ya! I personally don’t think I’d be able to do it.

When my aunt got divorced from her 2nd husband, she gave me her engagement ring, which like yours, doesn’t look like an engagement ring. Its white gold with 3 rows of pave diamonds for the band, and the center is a yellow gold heart covered in yellow pave diamonds. She didn’t want it since it would remind her of an ended relationship but I wore it on my right hand.
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with wearing it if you don’t mind, but if you have another family member that would appreciate it and it would bring happiness to, maybe you can pass it on…?
