How To Wear A Wedding Ring: 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.

Channel-Set Diamond
Wedding Ring

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!

Despite some initial confusion (the gala theme was “camp” as in “campy” or theatrically overdone, not as in summer camp), red carpet celebs did not disappoint. We rounded up our favorite 2019 Met Gala looks and fine jewelry so that you can be just as extra.

These looks overwhelmed us in all the best ways:

1. Jared Leto + Ruby Diamond Ring

Jared Leto Met Gala looks ruby diamond engagement ring

One of the most unforgettable Met Gala looks of the year, primarily because Leto, er, thought a-head. The next thing we noticed, though, was his scarlet red, embellished gown. Steal some of that drama with a red-hot ruby engagement ring!

2. Zendaya + Aquamarine Diamond Ring

zendaya met gala looks cinderella aquamarine diamond ring

As if Zendaya’s spot-on Cinderella hair and styling weren’t enough, jaws dropped as her ball gown lit up at the wave of a wand. Want to capture the magic of the actress’s blue gown? Shop this aquamarine ring lit up by a floating diamond halo.

3. Naoki Kobayashi + Men’s Carved Ring

Naoki Kobayashi Met Gala looks carved men's wedding ring

This Japanese dancer’s metallic animal-print jacket made serious moves across the red carpet! Kobayashi had one of the more reserved men’s Met Gala looks of the night, and we still loved it. Get that striking print mixed with classic form with this carved men’s wedding ring.

4. Janelle Monáe + Pink Sapphire Necklace

janelle monáe met gala looks pink sapphire diamond necklace

It’s almost impossible to keep Monáe off these red carpet lists because she always takes incredible risks. In this case, we’re so glad she was thinking pink. For a similar bold, graphic burst of color, get our pink sapphire halo necklace.

5. Katy Perry + Chevron Drop Earrings

Katy Perry Met Gala looks diamond chandelier earrings

Perry transformed into a tres-chic chandelier that actually lit up. We can’t help but connect this to Zendaya’s light-up dress, mostly because Katy Perry totally looks like Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast. Fall under the singer’s spell with these dangling, sparkling earrings.

P.S. Get the details on Katy Perry’s engagement ring here!

6. Priyanka Chopra Jonas + Gemstone Necklace

Priyanka Chopra Jonas Met Gala looks gemstone diamond necklace

We’re floored by this entire Met Gala look, from Chopra Jonas’s bold hair and makeup to those colors cascading down her dress. If only there was a way to wear that sparkle and color combo any time… Oh wait. There is. Shop this gemstone and diamond cluster necklace!

7. Saoirse Ronan + Blossoming Diamond Ring

Saoirse Ronan Met Gala looks vine swirling engagement ring

That silhouette, that fire, those bright, shining colors – and somehow it all goes together flawlessly! Mirror the gold swirling detail on the sides of Ronan’s look with this side-stone blossoming vine engagement ring. Then, check out of GoT blog for more dragon dazzle 😉

8. Lady Gaga + Butterfly Ring

Lady Gaga Met Gala looks butterfly pink sapphire ring

Extra, extra, read all about it! We had four (FOUR.) costume changes to choose from before we landed on Gaga’s original hot pink, bow-embellished beautiful monster. Fly like Gaga’s gown with this show-stopping and playful pink sapphire diamond ring.

BRILLIANT TIPS FOR DIAMOND CARE

Take Care of Your Diamond Cleaning

No need to bring your diamonds in for cleaning – here are the DIY methods to keep your diamond engagement ring and diamond jewelry looking just like new:

1. Soak and Scrub

Everyone can use a good bubble bath, and your jewelry is no exception! Take care of your diamond rings and jewelry with a little TLC, making sure no gems come loose.

take care of your diamond cleaning princess cut channel set engagement ring

Soak your jewelry in a solution of mild dish soap and warm water for a few minutes. Afterward, carefully scrub the metal using a soft cloth, cotton swab, or gentle toothbrush, then rinse.

2. Get Intense Shine

For extra shine in your yellow gold, rose gold, or platinum jewelry, you can follow up the mild dish soap soak with window cleaner. Do not use window cleaner with white gold – the rhodium plating won’t be able to handle such harsh chemicals. Limit this soak to one minute at a time.

take care of your diamond cleaning engagement ring wedding ring

After the window cleaner, dip your ring into the mild dish soap solution, rinse it with warm water, then dry it completely.

3. Shield the Shade

You can use ionic cleaners to clean most diamond jewelry, but the electrical current may mess with the hue of certain gemstones. Consider other cleaning methods for colorful gemstone engagement rings and gemstone jewelry

Take Care of Your Diamond Insurance

1. Insure Your Diamond Jewelry

Better sparkly and safe than sorry! It might feel weird to prep for the worst when you’re still perfecting the filter on your ring selfie, but trust us – make sure to insure your jewelry right away in case it gets lost or stolen. Find out how much your homeowner’s and renter’s policies cover, then look into additional policies like Jewelers Mutual.

take care of your diamond insurance pave engagement ring

2. Choose the Right Policy

Make sure you know what you’re getting into! Here are some good questions to ask while you’re researching diamond jewelry insurance policies:

  • Do they offer a deductible or discount if you have a home security system?
  • Does the policy cover you fully if the item is damaged or lost overseas?
  • Is the diamond jewelry covered at the full replacement cost, and will they give you a cash settlement or a replacement item?
  • Which appraisal reports does the insurance company accept, and how often do you need to provide them?

Men’s Wedding Bands: The Complete Guide

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

wedding rings 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

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

white gold domed wedding ring for men

Beveled Comfort Fit Wedding Band

white gold beveled wedding ring for men

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.

Shape Series: Princess Cut Diamonds

Looking for a diamond shape that’s a bit different, but that doesn’t stray too far from the traditional? With its clean, modern lines and intense sparkle, the four-sided princess cut is right on point.

Why Princess Cut Diamonds?

Before we begin, let’s address the square elephant in the room; princess cut diamonds do not resemble an actual princess. The proportions are way off! But semantics aside, princess cut diamonds are considered royalty among diamond cuts thanks to their exquisite beauty.

Princess cut diamonds, like round cuts, are typically comprised of 58 facets that increase light dispersion for maximum fire and brilliance. In other words, they pack a tremendous amount of sparkle into a neat little square.

Princess cut diamonds can be worn and enjoyed by all, owing to their neutral shape. However, they look particularly fetching on slender fingers, as their vertical lines delicately accentuate finger length.

Who Rocks Princess Cut Diamonds?

Celebs such as Solange Knowles, Kate Bosworth, Hilary Duff, Snooki, Aly Michalka, and Samira Wiley have been flashing all the right angles. Don’t be fooled by the shape of their stones, though – these women are anything but square!

The somewhat unconventional form of the princess cut diamond allows the wearer to express their bohemian, free-spirited side. And like the wearer, these diamonds sparkle well beyond their borders.

What to Know About Princess Cut Diamonds

When a diamond cutter transforms a rough diamond into a round cut, a good deal of the stone is lost. This isn’t the case with princess cut diamonds, which retain approximately 30% more of the rough stone. Carat for carat, you’re getting more diamond surface – and, therefore, sparkle – making it better value for money.

Princess cut diamonds benefit from settings that protect their corners from daily wear and tear. You’ll often find them mounted as solitaires in four-prong settings, but bezel settings provide just as much protection. Whichever setting you choose, ensure that the prongs cover the diamond’s corners completely to avoid accidental chipping.

To really make your princess cut pop, try pairing it with complementary side stones such as baguettes or tapered baguettes. Not only does this increase the amount of sparkle, it also draws the eye toward the center stone.
