Wedding and engagement rings are the most common; however, many people do not know how to wear them. To guide you here are ways on how to wear the bands:

Matching bands

If the wedding and engagement rings are matching, you should wear them on the same hand. Before the wedding you should wear the engagement ring on the third finger of the left hand.

On the day of the wedding you should move the engagement ring on the hand that is closest to the heart. Traditionally this is considered to be the right hand; therefore, on the wedding day you should move the engagement ring to the third finger of the right hand.

After the wedding, you should move the engagement band to the third finger of the left hand so that it's on the outside of the wedding band.

Non-matching bands

Since the bands are different, you should not wear them on the same hand. The right way of wearing the bands is putting the wedding ring on the third finger of the left hand and the engagement ring on the hand and finger of your choice.

This means that you can choose to wear the band on either the right or left hand. You can also wear the ring on any finger that you want.

Before the wedding day, you should wear the engagement ring on the third finger of the left hand; however, on the wedding day you should move the band to your right hand. After the ceremony you should insert the engagement band into the right guard and wear it on the same finger as the wedding ring.

Conclusion

These are tips on how to wear wedding and engagement bands. In some cases couples find it necessary to have an eternity ring. If you are wondering what an eternity band is, this is a ring that serves as a symbol of continued love between the husband and wife. In most cases, it's given as an anniversary present or after the birth of a child.

Unlike wedding bands, these bands usually do not have standard settings or stones and their actual composition relies on the decision of the giver.

If your husband decides to give you an eternity ring, you should wear it on the third finger of the left hand. This means that you should wear it together with the wedding and engagement bands. If the two bands are too wide, you can wear the eternity band on any other finger of your choice.
