How To Wear A Wedding Ring Set: The Must-Read Guide

In the world of how to wear wedding rings and engagement rings, there are no hard-and-fast rules. Even the most “universal” traditions, as you’ll soon see, are subject to variations. It all depends on the ring wearer’s particular culture and style.

So what should YOU do? Read on to find out.

The Right Way To Wear A Wedding Ring

“What’s the right way to wear my wedding ring?”

With all the traditions and rituals involved in marriage, it’s easy to get lost in the whirlpool of wedding “should”s. And there are a lot of them. But as far as how to wear a wedding ring, where to wear a wedding ring, and what your wedding ring should look like – there is quite a bit of room to express yourself! On the whole, the world of wedding rings is less rigid than that of engagement rings. 

Wedding Ring Pros: you have lots of flexibility in your style choice.

Wedding Ring Cons: you still have to navigate numerous, and possibly conflicting, traditions. 

That’s why we’re here to answer your questions about how to wear a wedding ring.

#1: What’s the difference between a wedding ring and an engagement ring? 

Though there are a few key design differences, the main thing that sets these two types of rings apart is when they’re given. An engagement ring is typically given during the proposal (from the proposer to the proposee), while wedding rings are exchanged during the marriage ceremony between both partners. And while an engagement ring typically features a prominent center stone, wedding rings don’t have one focal point per se. They feature either rows of smaller stones or simply a clean solitaire band. In this, they’re more like the super-talented backup singer whose role is to gracefully point the attention to the star: your engagement ring.

In contrast to engagement rings, there are relatively few restrictions on how wedding rings should be worn and how they should look. Even so, navigating the myriad of loose cultural traditions and style possibilities can often be overwhelming. So let’s answer all your most pressing wedding ring questions, one-by-one!

#2: How should my wedding ring look?

Again, the answer is: anyway you’d like! There are very few customs concerning the actual design of a wedding ring. Here is a rundown of the most popular options.

Eternity ring or open ring?

ETERNITY RINGS

In some cultures, it’s a custom to wear circular eternity rings. In this case, the continuity of an eternity ring is considered to represent a couple’s endless love and their everlasting unity.

Prong-Set Diamond
Wedding Ring

Channel-Set Diamond

However, an eternity ring isn’t for everyone – non-circular rings are also a lovely option. This is particularly the case for anyone whose center stone is elongated – like a marquise, oval, or pear – and prevents the engagement ring from sitting flush with a round wedding ring. Two excellent alternatives are custom-curved rings, or open rings.

CURVED WEDDING RINGS

If your engagement ring has a distinct shape, your wedding ring can curve to accommodate your center stone. This gives your wedding set a unique interlocking quality. As an added bonus, the curved wedding rings’ complementary shapes reduce friction on your skin by preventing unnecessary slippage.

OPEN WEDDING RINGS

Or, you can choose to wear an open ring. Though less common, open wedding rings are gaining popularity. These unique pieces complement many wearers’ unique styles, and they go beautifully with an elongated center stone.

Stones or classic?

In Judaism, the wedding ring is traditionally an unadorned, simple band that’s free of engravings or precious stones. In other cultures, there are no specific customs regarding wedding ring decoration. Diamonds? Yes. Gemstones? Yes. Classic? Yes.

GEMSTONES

The beauty of gemstone wedding rings is the huge selection! Sapphires, rubies, pearls, emeralds…it’s a positive smorgasbord of sparkle. You can always choose a particular stone simply for its beauty, but you can also embrace certain stones’ meanings. For instance, you may inlay your wedding rings with your respective birthstones, zodiac signs, or stones that are particularly lucky for you.

CLASSIC

Classic wedding rings complement absolutely any engagement ring. The simplicity of a classic metal band directs all the attention to your engagement ring. So if you’re struggling to find a matching wedding ring, or you simply want to highlight your engagement ring, then a classic wedding ring could be the style for you.

#3: Which hand should I wear my engagement and wedding ring on? 

Which hand, and which finger, on which rings are worn changes radically around the world. Even in Europe, in which rings are almost always worn on the fourth finger – the ring finger – there are at least 3 common ways to wear a wedding set.

On The Right Hand

Catholic and eastern European tradition dictates that the wedding and engagement ring both be worn on the right hand. The engagement ring is removed before the wedding ceremony, and after the wedding ring is slipped on during the ceremony, the engagement ring is replaced on top of it. The custom of wearing the wedding set on the right hand comes from an ancient Roman belief that the left hand was untrustworthy. In fact, the Latin word for “left hand” shares the same root as the modern-day word “sinister.”

On The Left Hand

On the other hand – *chuckle* – the Anglican church started doing things a bit differently following their separation from the Catholic church. By wearing both rings on the left hand, they rang in a new era of reformation by eschewing old “sinister” traditions. And this custom continues in Protestant cultures today, where the wedding ring is placed on the left hand during the wedding ceremony, and then the engagement ring is slipped on after it. Many people enjoy the symbolism of wearing their wedding ring closest to their heart, since it highlights the importance of marriage. 

Since the engagement ring is worn on the left hand after the proposal, many brides make this work by temporarily changing the hand on which they wear their engagement ring; during the wedding, they slip it onto their right hand before returning it to their left, over their new wedding ring.

On Different Hands

However, the engagement ring and wedding ring don’t have to be worn on the same hand. If it’s more your style, you can wear them on opposite hands. Spread the glitter around, as it were. In Spain, for instance, the engagement ring usually goes on the left hand, while the wedding ring usually goes on the right. 

So – there’s no dominating tradition regarding where to wear your wedding ring. It all depends on local tradition, religion, and personal style; not all of your personal traditions may line up. It’s possible that religiously, you prefer to wear your wedding ring on your right hand, but local custom dictates that you wear it on your left. 

In the end, it’s all up to you. However you prefer to wear your wedding ring is the right way to wear it.

#4: How do I match my wedding ring to my engagement ring?

The answer: however you’d like. This is where you have utter freedom to express yourself – there are very few, or no, customs regarding how to match your wedding set. So what’s this mean for you? You have 3 main elements to mix and match: metal, stones, and style

We’ve taken one of our most popular engagement rings, the Petite Pavé, to show you all the ways you can choose a matching wedding ring. 

The Petite Pavé Engagement Ring

Match by Metals

All ring metals look great together! White gold + white gold = pretty. White gold + yellow gold/rose gold = pretty. It all works. You can’t go wrong.

#5 What should I do if I can’t wear my wedding ring the “traditional” way?

Remember that tradition is a suggestion.

  • If you can’t wear your wedding ring on the “right” finger, wear it on another one!
  • If you can’t wear it on your hand, slip it onto a chain and wear it as a pendant necklace.
  • If your wedding ring doesn’t fit with your engagement ring, wear them on separate fingers.
  • If you don’t like rings, bracelets can be excellent substitutes.

The bottom line is – it’s your wedding, your marriage, and your ring. You can choose to wear it in whatever way suits you!

Stackable rings are also a foolproof gift to spoil a loved one to mark a special occasion. Read our top ring stacking tips, then stack the perfect combo! 

Love At First Stack

When it comes to stackable rings, the creative floodgates are open! Start with a statement ring on your ring finger and build around it. Alternatively, choose small rings with subtle bits of sparkle and work your way up. There’s no right or wrong answer – you are the leader of your stack! We think white, rose and yellow gold rings make the dream stack.

10 Ways To Lose Your Ring: Why You Need Jewelry Insurance

Sometimes life just…happens. That’s why there’s jewelry insurance.

rose gold solitaire engagement ring and a rose gold wedding ring.

These customer experiences are proof that jewelry insurance is a must. No one is safe from life’s great ring hazards, like fishing expeditions or golden retrievers. These 10 fiasco-filled customer stories prove it!

Jewelry mishaps are way too common. Luckily, James Allen has partnered with Jewelers Mutual to provide both warranties against damage AND comprehensive jewelry insurance – so you can be protected against wear-and-tear, loss, theft, or extensive damage. 

You know, just in case (HEAVEN FORBID) what happened to these customers, happens to you. 

So, when does jewelry insurance come in handy?

1. WHEN YOU’VE GOT THE WORST LUCK

Get. Jewelry insurance. At. Checkout. Do we have to spell it out for you?

“I was going to propose the following day. I thought of getting insurance, but I planned to do it after dinner with my family. 2 hours after coming back home, my house was broken into and the ring was gone.
– Danial K.

2. WHEN YOU JUST LOSE STUFF

If you can’t keep track of your stuff, we’ve got your – hey, where are my keys?

“My husband lost his wedding band, again. This site made it so easy to reorder. I will use James Allen again when he loses it next time.
– Genevieve F.



3. WHEN YOUR HINDSIGHT’S 20-20

Protect your sparkle & sip your beachy margaritas worry-free.

“Unfortunately, I lost my original ring on vacation (get that insurance!). But…my new ring is AMAZING!!!!!”
– Alison R.

4. WHEN YOU CATCH…AND RELEASE

Active lifestyles = more lost rings. 

“I bought the same ring twice when my husband lost the first one on a fishing trip. He loved it so much he wanted the exact same one the second time.”
– Shellie M.

5. WHEN YOUR PETS GET INVOLVED

Got pets? Get insurance.

“My original engagement ring was eaten by my dog.
– Consuela V.

6. WHEN YOU’RE A BIT ABSENT-MINDED

Let us worry about your ring, so you can keep your mind on the proposal.

“The ring was in my briefcase, which was stolen by a taxi driver in the ride from the Rome airport so I didn’t get to propose at the Trevi Fountain as I had planned.”
– George D.

7. WHEN THE PRODIGAL RING RETURNS

From normal wear-and-tear to some more…um…serious damage, jewelry insurance makes sure your sparkle is recoverable.

“I lost my engagement ring a few weeks ago in Dublin (Ireland), but luckily enough I found it again. Unfortunately, my ring did sustain quite a bit of damage. I sent the ring back to James Allen for repairs – it came back like brand new and as sparkly as ever!”
– Katie M.

8. WHEN YOU TRY TO BE RESPONSIBLE BUT…

Sometimes it slips your mind.

“My husband was trying to get my ring resized for me and forgot to bring it into the house overnight and his car was broken into and the thieves got away with my ring. I was devastated!”
– Jane B.

9. WHEN REDECORATING BECOMES AN EXTREME SPORT

Daily life isn’t risk-free!

“My wedding ring turned out perfectly. When it was damaged (moving furniture) we were able to send it back to James Allen to be repaired for free.”
– Jared F.

10. WHEN THE STAR OF THE SHOW GOES MISSING

Center stone issues? We’ve got insurance for that.

“My wife lost the center stone on her engagement ring. She was very sentimental about replacing it. When I found a new stone, I felt like I was proposing to my wife all over again!!”
– Bill T.

Jane-Inspired Rings (Just Like a Telanovela!)

The season five premiere of Jane the Virgin is finally here! We’ve rounded up some Jane-inspired rings in honor of the final season (potential spoilers ahead!).

jane the virgin inspired engagement rings

After the cliffhanger following season four’s almost-proposal, we thought we’d have some fun… Presenting: engagement rings and wedding rings for our favorite Jane the Virgin characters!

Jane-Inspired Ring: Jane

Just for Jane, we’ll write and publish a super-organized list obsessing over this pavé engagement ring: a. Eighteen side-stones add romantic sparkle; b. the platinum band is hypoallergenic and durable; and c. Perfect Fit sides keep the diamonds front and center.

Perfect Fit Pavé Engagement Ring

P.S. We don’t need to imagine the ring of the actress who plays Jane! Get the look of Gina Rodriguez’s art deco halo ring.

Jane-Inspired Ring: Xiomara

This fairytale engagement ring fits right in with Xo and Ro’s wedding. Check out that vintage detailing – it’s as beautifully complex as Xiomara and makes us want to dance all night (and knowing Xo, those would be some awesome moves).

Filigree Vintage Engagement Ring

Jane-Inspired Rings: Petra

Anything we choose for Petra needs to exude power, and this side-stone ring does not disappoint. Three emerald cut diamonds give strong lines and sparkle. What’s more – all together, the diamonds look like one brilliantly managed Marbella Hotel.

Emerald Cut Three-Stone Engagement Ring

14K White Gold Three Stone Emerald And Pave Set Diamond Engagement Ring

Shop Emerald Cut Diamond Rings

Jane-Inspired Rings: Rafael

Everything Rafael has gone through has made him tougher. Meanwhile, aside from his Zen phase (#tbt), he’s always remained polished. Combine that with a yellow gold comfort fit to represent his soft side, and this ring is totally Raf.

Etched Comfort Wedding Ring

Jane-Inspired Ring: Alba

Abuela keeps it classic, always keeping her family members on track. We’d like to think she’d love this solitaire engagement ring for its timelessness. Besides, we all know how much Alba treasures flowers!

Jane-Inspired Rings: Michael

Michael’s dependability is what we love most about him and what makes him a great detective. Sure, other rings have flash, but this go-to comfort fit wedding ring is a bestseller for a reason. Bonus: just like Michael (somehow??), the platinum’s shine will always be by your side.

Men’s Wedding Bands: The Complete Guide

Know what to look out for when shopping mens wedding bands.

A guy with a bow tie and with a wedding ring for men

Wedding rings for men often get outshined by the sparkle-fest that is the engagement ring. But these boy bands are more than mere one-hit wonders. They’re likely the single most important piece of jewelry you’ll ever own. You owe it to yourself to explore all your options before settling down with your lustrous loop.

Wedding Rings for Men: Test Your Metal

First thing’s first: decide on a metal. If you’re the conventional type, you can’t go wrong with a traditional gold or platinum wedding ring. Gold rings are known for their distinct character; yellow gold’s warm glow, white gold’s snowy purity, and rose gold’s unique vintage look. Men’s platinum wedding bands, while similar in appearance to men’s white gold wedding bands, are very rare and exceptionally hardwearing.

When choosing a metal for your wedding band, there’s more to consider than cost alone. Think about how it will look next to your partner’s ring. Do you want them to match or do you prefer a contrast? How much maintenance is required? (The ring, not your partner!) Are you allergic to any of the materials? The last thing you want to do is make a rash decision about such an important purchase.

If you’re more of a trendy non-conformist, an alternative metal such as titanium or cobalt chrome might float your boat. Men’s titanium wedding bands are a popular option as they’re durable enough to withstand the rigors of daily life, yet surprisingly lightweight.

Black Titanium Comfort Fit Ring

Crafted from aircraft-grade titanium, this Black Titanium Comfort Fit Ring is sophisticated and undeniably eye-catching.

Black Titanium wedding ring for men 7.5mm Comfort-Fit Satin-Finished High Polished Center Cut Carved Design Ring

Cobalt chrome is another solid choice. Literally. It’s four times harder than gold and has a non-corrosive, scratch-resistant surface. Like titanium, cobalt is a hypoallergenic metal, making it suitable for those with sensitive skin (we’re looking at you, tough guy!).

Cobalt Chrome Comfort Fit Ring

This Cobalt Chrome Comfort Fit Ring features a natural and long-lasting high luster that won’t fade or discolor over time.

cobalt chrome wedding ring for men

Wedding Rings for Men: A Broad Band

The width of your wedding ring is entirely a matter of personal style. However, as a general rule of thumb, those with larger hands are better off going with a thicker wedding ring, and vice versa. Because wider rings require more precious metal, they tend to be more expensive. Pro tip: Offset the cost of a larger ring by choosing a more affordable metal. White gold, for instance, looks very similar to platinum but costs less.

Slightly Domed Comfort Fit Wedding Ring

Beveled Comfort Fit Wedding Band

Wedding Rings for Men: The Finishing Touch

Wedding rings for men owe their handsome appearance in large part to the texture, or finish, of the metal. James Allen wedding rings come in all different finishes including high polish, satin, and hammered. A high polish finish is considered a traditional choice whereas satin might appeal more to lovers of contemporary design. If you’re looking for something that’s off the beaten path, the hammered look is bound to get your heart pounding.

Wedding Rings for Men: The Bevel’s in the Detailing

Wedding rings for men have come a long way in recent years, shedding their bland band reputation in favor of more daring designs. These days, it’s not uncommon to see rings sporting diamond or gemstone accents.

Beveled Bezel Set Diamond Wedding Ring

This Beveled Bezel Set Diamond Wedding Ring features a satin finish and high polished beveled edge. But the main attraction is the single round ideal cut diamond at its center.

Wedding Rings for Men: Make Your Mark

If you want to make your wedding ring extra meaningful, why not personalize it with a loving inscription? James Allen offers free engraving on most of its wedding bands. Have your SO’s name or initials etched in the metal, a song lyric or inside joke, or the date of your wedding. Now there’s no excuse for forgetting your anniversary!
