7 rules of wedding ring etiquette

Posted on

The engagement ring is a symbol of your undying love for another person, which is why it’s important to have proper etiquette when it comes to your engagement ring etiquette. From the person who’s picking out the wedding ring to how much to spend on the wedding ring, there is no shortage of details about rings and their importance, which you need to keep in mind before getting engaged.

Which finger do they go on?

There are dozens of ways to wear a wedding ring. For example, some people prefer wearing their engagement rings on the left hand and then switching them over to the right hand when they get married. Others enjoy having two fingerposts so that both hands can have one! It’s all up to preference, but your dominant side is usually where most people would want them worn first.

You know what feels best, so choose whichever way suits you better as long as there isn’t too much symmetry in either direction (which may be uncomfortable).

Keep It Safe

When it comes to caring for an engagement ring, the most important thing is to protect your investment. It’s best not to wear them in water or other liquids and always remove them when doing any activity that could cause damage, such as cooking or gardening.

A professional jeweler can also buff out scratches. So, even if you do accidentally scratch your fidget ring with a nail file, they’ll be back looking like new again!

The correct size

One of the most important things to do when getting married is ensuring that your wedding ring fits. This may seem obvious, but it’s easy for people to get too caught up in their engagement rings and forget about whether they’re going to be a comfortable fit on their fingers or not! It can also depend on how short they are or whether a different size fits better as well. So, don’t worry too much about getting it perfectly symmetrical because, sometimes, not being perfect makes them more beautiful in their own way.

Insurance for wedding rings

Every couple should have insurance for their wedding rings. When it comes to engagement rings and bands, you want to make sure that they are covered in the event of theft or damage! That way, your investment is safe no matter what happens.

There’s also a chance that something happens with the diamonds on your band, such as a diamond falling out or being cracked by accident. Many companies will replace them for free, so don’t be afraid to immediately reach out about getting it repaired before anything goes wrong. This will help you avoid an expensive problem!

Don’t follow any trends

An engagement ring should be a timeless, classic symbol of your love that will last forever. The goal is to find the stone that best matches your partner’s style and personality so it becomes something they’ll want to wear every day for the rest of their lives.

Don’t get caught up in trends when picking out an engagement ring. Instead, focus on finding one based upon their current jewelry preferences or their favorite colors if you know them well enough already!

Choose the right time

Do you want to give a ring and ask your girlfriend if she wants to marry you? Great! But choose the right moment–maybe it’s not her favorite day or something like that. Before doing this, make sure she is ok with such an important move by “talking about it first.”

When asking your partner-to-be, choose the best timing to give a marriage proposal as well as ensure they are comfortable being asked at any given point of time; choosing between Valentine’s Day or other days, which may be tricky but doable nonetheless.

Can I ask him how much it costs?

No. The ring is a symbol, not a dowry. Naturally, you’d be curious to know how much it cost, but we highly suggest you don’t. Asking how much the ring cost can be seen as rude.

If you want to know how much your boyfriend has spent on the ring, then ask and see if he’ll tell you about the purchase/design process. Nonetheless, don’t worry too much when, most likely, he wanted a nice ring as well since he’s the one who started the whole ring buying process and wants the best for you as well.
