Hi there bees!
I stumbled upon this site while researching various types of rings. I have a prety classic wedding set, yellow gold solitaire with a plain band,I love it but I’ve always like the three diamond “past present and future” rings too. I don’t want to change my wedding set, so I was thinking of getting one for my right hand, I just feel funny about wearing an expensive diamond ring as a right hand ring, it seems a little bit frivoulous? I considered gemstones instead to bring the cost down, but there isn’t a colour I’d want to wear all the time. I’m not interested in cz.
Anyway, do any of you have diamond RHRs? Do they compete with your ering? Are people rude to you/judgy about it? Do you think it’s excessive?
Please share pics!

I do not personally have one, but my best friend occasionally wears a beautiful (definitely expensive) RHR that was passed down from her Grandmother. Whenever she wears it, I think it’s beautiful and I know it means a lot to her. It’s rather large, but I don’t think that it comes accross as too showy. I also live in D.C. where people wear expensive jewelry all the time, so it might be different where you live. If you’re in a big city or your social group has money, I don’t think anyone would judge you for it, and if they do, they’re the jerks. If you want one and can afford it, I say go for it!

What you do with your money is your business. if you are in a good financial place and have extra and want to buy it. Go for it.
Eveyone has a wish list of things that they would do with extra money. Fiance would probably get a fancy car. Do I get the point of an expensive car? Nope. Id be happy with a bicycle. But I’d totally justify a fancy RHR 😜
post pictures if you end up choosing one!

I have a diamond flower RHR and I don’t feel it competes with my e-ring since it’s not really a “traditional” e-ring solitaire or halo type style. If it was one larger solitaire/ering, I would personally not want it to be a clear stone so that it doesnt look like one. That’s just personal perference. My RHR was about $1500 (not sure if that counts as expensive), much less than my ering. Before we got engaged, I joked with my DH that the e-ring he gets me needs to be bigger and better than this diamond ring!

Well in my situation I wear my old ering as RHR and it cost 4 times what my moissanite costs which is now my stand in ering. Both a two different ring types entirely so works well.

i actually have an invisible set black & white diamond right hand ring that looks like a 3 stone…i don’t wear it all the time because sometimes i do feel like it looks e-ringy and competes, but when i do wear it and get compliments on it and no one ever “questions” it.
it’s very different from my actual e-ring, but it could certainly pass for an e-ring itself, so i do find i don’t wear it as much as i did before i got engaged. However, i am somewhat newly engaged, so maybe in a few years i will not be as focused on my ering being the center of the jewlery show all the time LOL Pics below… 🙂

I would love a blingy RHR. Maybe in a few years.

I fully plan on purchasing a diamond RHR once my debts are paid off, it’s not going to be on that looks like an e-ring, but I wouldn’t care if it did!

I sometimes wear my grandmothers diamond ring or my mother’s wedding set on my right hand and I don’t think it competes with my wedding set because is not on the same hand! But then I always wear lots of rings anyway 🙂
Both are larger than my engagement diamond which is part of a wrap that I wear with two anniv. bands. if you want to blingly right hand ring I say go for it if you can afford it! Enjoy

In a few years I am going to have diamond cocktail RHR to wear for fancy occasions or when I feel like it. The diamond was a gift from FMIl, a lovely 1.5 carat oval. since we already have the priciest part it won’t cost us too much to put into a custom setting like this but prob with a halo:
If I didn’t have the diamond I’d prefer studs or a tennis bracelet before another major diamond ring purchase! that ring will be less expensive than my ering even if we bought the diamond, but it will look glitzier because I have a solitaire.

One of my college professors had a solitaire wedding set on one hand and a diamond three stone ring on the other. I usually sat up front, so when I got bored I could just watch the sparkles and it looked like I was still paying attention. It looked fine
I’m getting a moissanite and ruby three stone ring as a mother’s ring, so soon I shall have all the sparkles. No worries about it competing with my engagement ring.
