I have a good friend who recently inherited a gorgeous set of rings from her late grandmother who passed away last month. She has two favourites – a wedding band and a flower-like cluster ring- that she started wearing together as a set on her right hand.
The thing is, she’s started having second thoughts that it might look like a wedding set (she’s single) even though they’re not on her left hand. I don’t really think so as I always assume wedding rings are only worn on the left hand. Then again, I am only one opinion hence I would love to know what you lovely bees think.

i would assume the person is married. i didnt know all of these “reasons why” but in my country it is common to wear the wedding set on a right hand. i dunno yet which one i will choose tho. 🙂

I always heard that if your husband dies and leaves you a widow, you move it to your right hand. Dont know how true that is, just what I’ve heard.

I would assume they are married because, in different cultures, people wear their wedding set on the right hand. If it was just one ring, I wouldn’t think so, but if it was a set I would think marriage.

@BrookeBQ: I agree. In Russia for one they wear their wedding set on their right hand.

I’ve had many boys assume I was engaged before I was because I wore a RHR. I don’t think I would assume she was married unless she mentions a husband.

I’ve seen people with rings on their right hand that look like wedding rings and didn’t assume they were married. If they were obviously foreign, I might, but that’s the only time.

I guess I wouldn’t assume, exactly, but the thought would definitely cross my mind as more than a possibility, because in my culture (Eastern European) the rings are worn on the right hand. I’ve also seen people in Canada (where I live) wear them on the right hand if they are left-handed, which makes sense to me.

I would not think she was married with a wedding set on her right hand.

I know in some cultures they do, but for the most part I don’t assume it’s a wedding set if it’s on the right hand.

Dpends on the country you are in… In North America it’s the left hand, in other lands, it’s the right hand. I feel that if you wear them both the wedding band and engagement ring, you are married, no matter which hand it’s on.

I would assume she was widowed, or wearing sentimental rings.

I would assume it’s a wedding set. I know someone who is married and has a deformity on her left hand, so she and her husband wear their rings on their right hands.
