I wear my diamond eternity band and e ring on the same finger even though I’m not married yet. People alway assume its my wedding ring and when I tell them it’s not they’re confused! Anybody else wear 2 rings?

I do now…because I’m married. But I can’t say that it’s anywhere close to the realm of shocking that people would ask that question and be subsequently confused. Your hand is screaming “I’m married.” That’s literally the social message you’re projecting. It’s not wrong, but I’m not surprised that people would assume you’re married based on what they’re observing and I’ve honestly not known anyone to wear “non-wedding-band” rings on their ring finger unless they were already married and had a collection of stacking bands.

Why don’t you wear the eternity band as a RHR? It sounds like a wedding set.
My e-ring is the only ring I wear.

My e-ring was all I wore on my left hand before getting married and before that I only ever wore a ring on that finger when I didn’t want to be hit on so I gave the impression that I was taken by wearing a blingy costume ring. I stack rings on my right hand sometimes though, but one of the prongs broke off of one of them and I haven’t gotten it fixed yet. Now that I’m married I wear 2 left hand rings and sometimes just my wedding band.

I cant wear it on my right hand because the finger on that hand is a size bigger. so it won’t fit 🙁

Also I forgot to add. when I do explain it’s just my eternity band I get lectured (mostly by older ladies who I work with and older ladies in my family) that I should NEVER wear a band there unless its my wedding band. I didn’t know there was a set rule when it came to rings?

@Princesslaylaxo: I do this too! I have a semi eternity band I bought myself for my birthday for my right hand but I’ve put on a bit of weight since so I keep wearing it on top of my engagement ring. I love how they look together. Nobody’s said anything but I don’t do it every day and i can sometimes squeeze it back onto my right hand some times

I wear two rings, but it’s my wedding set and I’m married. I’m not surprised people think you’re married and when you say it isn’t a wedding band, they get confused.

I wear two rings on my left hand sometimes. I have my engagement ring, plus sometimes I wear my anniversary ring. Once I’m married I will wear all three rings on my left finger. No one has ever said anything about me wearing my 2 rings, and if they assume I’m married, so be it ! I wear my engagement ring first then the anniversary ring, so it’s not in the “wedding ring” spot (:

@Princesslaylaxo: I could see how that would confuse people, but it’s your ring and your finger and rules are just arbitrary so you should do as you please.

@Princesslaylaxo: Just wear what you want! I’m not engaged or married but I wear rings on my left hand all the time! I have two eternity bands, a plain white gold I bought myself and my grandma’s plain yellow wedding band. I mix them with a small solitaire my parents got me years ago. As long as there is no official e-ring I’m fine with it! I’m not a “follow the rules” kind of girl!

That would imply “married” to me because it’s getting more common for women to wear diamomds on their wedding band as well as their engagement ring. I don’t understand why you’re wearing your non-engagement diamond ring on that finger though, why not one of your 9 others?

I don’t think it’s weird at all, but I’d be concerned about friction between the two bands leading to scratches on the metal.
As long as you don’t mind when people assume you’re married when they see your left hand, it shouldn’t matter.

I could definitely see why people would assume that, if it is a band that looks like a wedding band and I would probably assume the same thing. But, there are no laws or real rules stating that you cant do it, so who cares. I think its strange when people won’t even wear rings on that finger, for example, before I got engaged I would sometimes wear thin, stacked rings on that finger (along with other fingers) and people would be like “oh are you married now?” I was like what? Uhh i got like 10 of these for $3.50 at forever 21, do they, along with my other cheap jewelry, really look like wedding rings?? Lol

Not that this is of any merit, but Miley Cyrus has been stacking her engagement ring with eterinty bands. Do what you want, just know that most people (if they look at your hand) will assume your married, as two bands is the “typical” ring arrangement after marraige.
