    Put on the wedding band first, then the engagement ring. Your wedding band is usually worn "closer to your heart."

    But honestly, there’s no law – you can wear your rings however you prefer.

    I usually just wear my wedding ring now, but if I’m going out I put my diamonds on… I always have my wedding ring on first.

    Before my wedding I’d read somewhere that it’s so it has the closest path to your heart without any obstacles… Cute :p

    The engagement ring is placed on top of the wedding band. That makes the wedding band closer to your heart.

    I think most people have their wedding ring bottom, it’s closer to the heart and all that. I do for practical reason, my engagement ring goes on and off many times during the day (washing up, lifting heavy things etc.) but my wedding ring never leaves my finger. It might be different if you plan to have a wedding ring with stones though.

    I think most people have their wedding ring bottom, it’s closer to the heart but i do not. I do not like it that way,. i want every one to see my wedding band. to me the engagement ring went on first then the wedding band so I leave it that way. I do not care what people say. there really is no rules . wear then the way you want to. everyone tells me my rings are on backwards and I do not care. it is how I want to wear my rings.

    I asked the same question from diamondsonweb.com , they are the people I got the ring from and they said that the engagement ring goes on top of the wedding band. And if possible put the wedding band on a different ring.

    It goes on top if you wear them as a set, but you don’t have to. Some women move the engagement ring to the right hand, and others just wear the band.
