Haven’t heard this one, but my Future Mother-In-Law told Fiance it was bad luck to wear your wedding band before the wedding. Well, let’s hope she’s wrong because I can’t stop playing with it!

I don’t put a lot of stock in those superstitions.  I certainly don’t think that successful marriage is based in luck or superstition.  I take my rings off all the time.  It doesn’t make me any less married or less in love with my husband.  The ring is just a physical symbol, and nothing more, in my opinion.

I have heard that it’s bad luck to have an opal for your ring UNLESS you were born in October… This applies slightly to me because I was born in July, and the ring my husband got me while mine was being soldered was an opal. 🙂 There are some other stones I believe this applies to as well.

Like PPs, I don’t put much stock in the wedding superstitions, but they are fun to bounce around.

I don’t believe in these superstitions, and I think it’s impractical to never take off your ring.

The first example that comes to mind is that it’s be pretty bad luck to lose a finger in the ER after failing to take off a ring.

..which, By The Way, removing-in-emergency-rooms can be a problem with Tungsten bands. :

I’ve never heard of that (and I take my rings off every day– cant sleep in them). My husband has never taken his ring off though, not once since I put it on him! I find that kind of amazing actually. He isn’t really superstitious he just thinks its cool to see how long he can go w/out taking it off. Its loose enough though that i think (hope) it gets at least kind of washed when he washes his hands and showers.

I’m a very superstitious person but I can’t sleep with my rings on… and I’d be terrified of ruining my band if I wore it in the pool or even bath… maybe I’ll be rougher with it once I’m wearing it everyday but I still couldn’t wear it everyday without a cleaning.

My grandmother told me it’s good luck to try on another bride’s engagement ring, and that you should each make a wish during the try-on.  I pass my ring over to anyone who asks 🙂

Leaving a piece of jewelry on all the time is unhygienic and can corrode the metal overtime. THAT is bad luck, haha!

I heard once that letting anyone else try on your ring is also bad luck, but I don’t believe in “luck” anyhow.

@LGenz: lol I love all of the hype over opal rings… 

White Opals are unlucky unless worn by someone born in October or with Diamonds. *Very unlucky in an engagement ring. *Will lose its shine if the owner dies. *Renders the wearer invisible. *Improves eyesight. *Will help blondes keep their hair color longer. *Will turn pale if in the presence of poison. *Black opals are lucky. *Useless as a charm to someone who is selfish. *If used for good, it gives the power of prophecy.

The “invisible” part could come in handy Laughing
