    Traditionally, the wedding band is worn closest to the palm with the ER on top. Of course, you can wear your rings however you choose, just be aware (as you surely are given your sister’s comments) that others may question why you are wearing your rings “the wrong way”. Many people might comment because they assume you don’t know how they are “supposed” to be worn. I wear mine in the traditional manner because my eye immediately sees rings worn the other way as “wrong”; rings worn in the reverse never look better to my eye.

    Likewise, my DS recently began wearing a watch, and he put it on his right wrist. I told him that it was his, and he could wear it however he chose, but that others would question whether he was left-handed or why he wore his watch on the “wrong” hand. He decided to switch because it wasn’t worth the comments and the side-eyes he got wearing it on his right wrist.

    imhisoneandonly:  I’ve seen it both ways. Traditionally it is supposed to be wedding ring on bottom because it’s closer to your heart, like other PPs said. I’m going to wear mine whatever way looks better though.

    I’m going to wear my engagement ring on the bottom, wedding ring on the top. I’d just like to keep my e-ring more secure 🙂

    imhisoneandonly:  Not married yet, but ill probably wear them on different hands with wedding band on the left and Engagement Ring on the right hand. All the women in my family do that. But do what ever you want! there is no “right” way.. only what is traditional.

    I wear my wedding band on the bottom and my engagement ring on the top. It looks and feels weird IMO to wear them the other way, but it’s 100% up to you.

    For some reason it’s more comfortable when I wear my ering under the band. But it just looks unbalanced that way. I prefer the on top especially since my wedding band is too big.

    I wear my wedding band on the bottom. I have noticed when people where it the other way, but it looks wrong to me.

    Random question, tagging in- I always assumed you wore your engagement ring down the isle. But now that I am actually paying attention, I am realizing that’s not the case..right? You just slip it back on after the ceremony before the reception?

    imhisoneandonly:  I wear my band closer to my heart and the ering on the outside.  I didn’t always, but after I got them soldered together, it’s how my husband put them back on, and it’s stayed as such since I never take them off.  I really feel it’s however you would like to wear them.

    As far as I know the wedding band is suppoed to go on bottom. Closer to your heart was the reason.

    I’ve heard you’re supposed to wear your wedding band in the bottom because it’s closest to our heart. I’ll wear my engagement ring on the bottom because that is the ring that started it all.
