Do You Wear Wedding Band Above Or Below Engagement Ring?

Do You Wear Wedding Band Above Or Below Engagement Ring?

Ever wondered about the historical significance of wedding and engagement rings and their placement? While Pineforest Jewelry offers a diverse range of exquisite engagement rings, understanding the history and meaning behind wearing them is equally important. Join us as we delve into this timeless debate.

Origins and Traditions

From ancient cultures to contemporary times, the order of wearing these rings varies. Traditionally, many believed in wearing the wedding band closer to the heart, emphasizing its profound importance over the engagement ring.

At Pineforest Jewelry, we understand that traditions are just as important as the ring itself. This is why our expert consultation services, backed by years of industry knowledge, are always available to answer such queries. You can even explore more on our "Ask Diamond Jim" blog series, where our co-founder, Diamond Jim, shares insights into such rich traditions.

Symbolism Behind the Placement

Engagement rings are a symbol of promise, while the wedding ring signifies its fulfillment. Many choose to wear the wedding ring below the engagement ring to signify that the promise has been sealed and is now closer to the heart. Whether you’re looking for an engagement ring or a wedding band, Pineforest Jewelry offers pieces that perfectly embody these sentiments.

Practicality and Comfort

Just as everyone has a unique love story, comfort levels differ. Some designs and combinations sit better in a specific order. We pride ourselves in offering custom designs tailored to individual preferences, ensuring the utmost comfort and style.

Changing Trends and Personal Preferences

Today, many modern couples opt for what feels right to them rather than following tradition. The beauty of it? Pineforest Jewelry supports every unique choice. With a range of stunning fashion jewelry alongside traditional pieces, we ensure every couple finds their perfect match.

Wearing Rings Separately

Some individuals, for various reasons, wear their rings separately. Maybe on different fingers or even hands. While it's essential to find what resonates with your style, remember our jewelry repair services are always here to ensure your precious pieces remain in pristine condition.

Fusion Rings: A Modern Take

Fusion rings, merging the engagement and wedding bands, have gained traction lately. While it's a fresh take on the age-old tradition, Pineforest Jewelry is ever ready to help you create your dream piece that reflects both commitments seamlessly.

Consulting With a Jeweler

Emphasizing the importance of personalized service, Pineforest Jewelry is committed to building strong relationships with clients. Always consider consulting with us when deciding on ring placement or if the rings weren’t designed as a set.


Choosing the placement of your rings is deeply personal. It's about what resonates with you and the memories attached to each piece. At Pineforest Jewelry, we always prioritize your preferences and the significance each ring holds for you.
