The proper way to wear a Wedding Ring set


As the old saying goes, "With this ring, I thee wed." A wedding ring set is not just a piece of jewelry; it's a symbol of eternal love and commitment. While slipping on that dazzling duo of rings might seem straightforward, there's an art to wearing them correctly. In this guide, we'll explore the proper way to wear a wedding ring set to ensure that the symbolism is as enduring as the love it represents.


  1. 1. The Engagement Ring: A Prelude to Forever


   The journey begins with the engagement ring. Traditionally, this ring is worn on the fourth finger of the left hand, known as the ring finger. This custom dates back to ancient times when it was believed that the vein in the ring finger, the "vena amoris" or vein of love, directly connected to the heart. Placing the engagement ring on this finger symbolizes the connection between two hearts bound by love.


  1. 2. The Wedding Band: Sealing the Covenant


   The wedding band is a timeless emblem of the union formed on the wedding day. Once married, the wedding band joins the engagement ring on the ring finger. There are two common methods for wearing the set:


  1. a. Together:

      - The wedding band is placed on the finger first, closest to the palm.

      - The engagement ring is then positioned on top, closest to the fingertip.

      - This arrangement symbolizes the unification of the couple in marriage.


  1. Separately:

      - Some prefer to wear the wedding band on the bottom and the engagement ring on top, with a small gap between them.

      - This allows each ring to shine individually while still emphasizing their connection.


  1. Which Hand is the Right Hand?


   In many Western cultures, the wedding ring set is traditionally worn on the left hand. However, customs vary around the world. In some countries, the right hand is the customary placement for wedding rings. It's essential to be aware of cultural differences and choose the hand that aligns with your personal or cultural preferences.


  1. 4. Maintenance and Care: Keeping the Sparkle Alive


   To maintain the brilliance of your wedding ring set, regular care is essential. Here are a few tips:


  1. a. Regular Cleaning:

      - Clean your rings with a soft brush, mild soap, and warm water to remove dirt and oils.

      - Periodic professional cleaning can help restore the original shine.


  1. b. Safe Storage:

      - When not worn, store your rings in a secure and padded jewelry box to prevent scratches or damage.


  1. c. Professional Inspection:

      - Schedule regular check-ups with a jeweler to ensure the settings and stones are secure.
