Getting engaged and married can be a stressful time in life. This exciting tradition is extremely emotional and there is a certain etiquette that comes with the territory. "How do I wear my engagement ring?" or "How do I wear my engagement ring and wedding band?"
Traditionally, engagement rings have a large diamond in the middle of band. The main diamond can all by itself and is called a solitaire or can have other smaller diamonds on either side sometimes referred as a three-stone engagement ring. There are many settings that can include a ring of small diamonds around the solitaire called a halo or the band itself can have diamonds along it.
Like the word implies, an engagement ring is given at the time of proposal and is worn by itself until the wedding. The ring is on finger next to the pinky on the left hand called the "ring finger".
Wedding bands are less ornate rings that accompany the engagement ring and are often purchased as a set. Wedding ring sets are designed to match the engagement ring guaranteeing a beautiful set for a lifetime.
The wedding band is given at the wedding ceremony and is always put on first, before the engagement ring. This symbolizes the commitment at the ceremony and it thus always wore closer to the heart.
Only One Ring?
It is more and more common (and budget friendly) to only buy one ring that doubles for both purposes. This is completely acceptable and isn't a problem.
