    They have them at most Peoples now. It was nice to have that safety feature, and not be constantly worried if the diamond in my ring was in fact, mine.

    I didn't even know there was such a thing! I'll be sure to find a place like that when I go to clean my ring eventually Smiley smile

    Oh goodness! That's where she needs to go to a store that has those powerful microscopes. When my rings went away, I was able to look at it and read the serial number off the diamond, then compare it when it came back. It's pretty difficult to "erase" those or change them in anyway.

    She's a little extreme because she's scared they will steal her centre stone (switch it out) if she gets it cleaned.

    I guess that's one way to save money on re-sizing!

    I'm going the more traditional route because my wedding band is very thin and looks better first on my finger. I'd be scared to have it fall off. Until I can get them welded together, I'm making sure it stays safe.

    I think that depending on the jewellery, engagement ring first can definitely look great! My cousins wife does this because she’s too nervous to get her engagement ring sized down, so she uses her correct fitting wedding band to hold it on lol.

    Band should be first traditionally as everyone had said as it is meant to be closer to your heart.

    However, you can wear it however you think it looks best really.


    I will wear band then engagement ring since my finger will be bare on the wedding day, the band will be put on and then I'll flip my engagement ring back onto my finger as well. That duo is NEVER coming off.

    Typically it’s wedding then engagement. Some ring sets have a one year band as well, which would go on the top. It can be however you’d like. My friend wore her engagement ring on her right hand because it wasn’t a set.

    Solution just get another band then you don’t have to choose haha. I think traditionally it’s band then engagement ring but who cares about traditions any more Smiley smile

    Majority of what I've seen is wedding band then engagement ring but I've seen the occasional ring set where it goes the other way

    Traditionally it's wedding band then engagement ring, but to heck with tradition, everyone does it the way they like it best, which is how it should be Smiley smile

    I personally prefer it band first but that's just me and how I like it on my own hand. YMMV!

    Typically it goes wedding band then engagement ring, however these days it's all preference. I do not like the look of engagement ring then wedding band so I'm definitely going band then ring.

    I'd prefer engagement ring first, wedding band second- only because i like the way it looks. to each, their own.

    Yeah I keep seeing it equally both ways. Guess there isn’t a right or wrong answer. I feel it should be band and then engagement.
