Creative and Alternative Ways to Wear your Wedding Ring
A wedding ring signifies that your heart belongs to someone else. Here are alternative ways to wear a ring if you can’t wear yours all the time.
A wedding ring is a symbol of infinity and endless love due to its circle shape. It has no beginning and no end, which is exactly what a marriage should be. The wedding ring and engagement ring is also worn on the fourth finger of the left hand - where the Ancient Romans believed the vena amoris was. Fast forward a few centuries and whilst this myth has been well and truly debunked, we still traditionally wear engagement rings and wedding rings on the fourth finger of the left hand.
However, not everyone can or wants to wear their wedding ring 24 hours of the day, seven days a week. Not everyone is a ring person, and some people find that their fingers swell during pregnancy, making it impossible to put their ring on.
Alongside this, in some professions it is deemed unsafe and unsanitary to wear your wedding ring. Yellow gold, white gold, platinum and palladium are beautiful materials that represent commitment and loyalty, but as we mentioned earlier they're not always fit for everyday use. If you're married or soon-to-be married and are unable to wear your wedding ring every day, here are a few alternative ways to wear your wedding ring!
