In most cultures, both the engagement ring and wedding ring are worn together on the ring finger. It is the fourth finger on the left hand, right next to your pinky. The wedding ring is placed on the finger first, followed by your engagement ring on the outside.
Exchanging ring is a symbol of love, and it’s believed to have originated from Egypt. They believed the fourth finger on your left hand directly runs to the heart, strengthening the pledge of love and commitment.
Romans later adopted this tradition and spread the practice throughout Europe and later the U.S. There is no such vein in a real sense, but the symbolism remains strong throughout all these years.
With most people preferring to wear these two rings together, bridal sets are specifically designed to match and wear well together, becoming a popular choice. Proper matched bridal sets ensure that the rings sit nicely on your finger next to one another without rubbing or even scratching each other.
Some couples choose to soldier their two rings together to prevent movement and twisting around the finger, causing the rings to misalign. Though there are no rules to be followed, it is essential that you love your rings and how you wear them.
Some couples also choose to wear their wedding band on their left-hand ring finger and their engagement on the right hand. And, sometimes wearing the wedding ring daily as an eternity band and the engagement ring only on special occasions like anniversaries. After all, how you wear these wedding ring sets is okay according to your personal preferences.
