Do you know that the wedding band goes first?!?!

There was just a question about which goes first and your band is traditionally cloest to the heart.

Did you know this? Do youwear yours like this? Does it even matter to you LOL?

  • I wear my engagement ring first. I got it first, so it's first. Besides that, it looks better that way and is more comfortable because of the difference in the widths.

  • Your band goes on the inside then the diamond ring. That is the reason, closes to your heart. I wear mine like this b/c most people do. It looks funny the other way to me unless it's in a setting set.

  • I never thought it mattered until I got married the man that married us told us about the tradition. Now I notice most people wear it band on first. it looked funny to me at first i kept wanting to change it but now im used to it!

  • Yes, I have always known that. My band has always been before my engagement ring. And now, they are soldered together so it makes it even easier!

  • I wear the wedding band closer to my heart. My friend is a jeweler and told me that was the traditional way to wear them. I never noticed how others wear theirs.

  • Yep, the jeweler told us of the tradition. I had them switched around because to me, he gave me the engagement ring first, and then the wedding band, so it made sense to me to wear them like that. I liked the "closer to the heart" spiel she gave us, so I switched them around.

  • Yes, I know that and that is how I wear it.. The diamond is just a promise even tho you got it first. The band is the actual vow and should be closest to the heart..

  • I have always worn my wedding band first because it never comes off.  I wear my engagement ring second and my eternity ring third.

  • Yes, I always wore my wedding band first and then my engagement ring. Now I wear my anniversary band, then wedding band, then engagement ring- mainly because the anniversary band is a little big so the other rings ahead of it make sure it won't fall off and get lost.
