Can you wear your engagement ring and wedding ring together? Of course! Wouldn't it be a shame if you could no longer wear a beautiful engagement ring once you are married? And if you can ensure that they fit together nicely, maybe even form a kind of unity, you’ll only amplify the effect.


Which Hand To Wear Your Engagement and Wedding Rings

Although traditional customs vary around the world, in most Western countries a diamond engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand –– the hand closest to the heart. Once married, you wear the wedding ring and the engagement ring on the same finger, with the wedding ring closest to the heart.

In different regions, traditions and religions, the wedding ring and the engagement ring are worn on the fourth finger, the ring finger, of the right hand.

Which hand you wear your engagement ring on is a very personal and intimate choice that symbolises the eternal love between you and your loved one.

How To Wear Other Rings

What if women who are not getting married still want to enjoy the sublime beauty of a classic or avant-garde diamond ring? The selection of diamond rings online is unlimited and offers every woman the ability to buy diamond rings and other jewellery at the best possible price.

Although most women have their personal preferences, a diamond ring that does not function as an engagement or wedding ring is usually worn on the middle finger of the right hand.

What About Signet Rings?

Signet rings displaying the family coat of arms,  can also serve as an engagement or wedding ring as a sign that the other person is accepted as a full member of the family.

The customs concerning wearing signet rings vary around the world. In Belgium, both men and women wear their signet rings on the left hand’s pinkie finger. However, in the United Kingdom, only men wear such a ring on the pinkie finger of the left hand. In France, men prefer the left ring finger, while women use the left pinkie finger. Of course, you can choose which finger to wear the ring on yourself.
