Traditions & Symbolism: Wearing Your Rings as One

Throughout history and cultures, wedding bands have signified a lifelong commitment. The tradition of wearing them on the left ring finger dates back to ancient Rome, where the "vena amoris" (vein of love) is believed to connect directly to the heart. Today, many couples choose to wear their engagement ring alongside their wedding band, creating a unified symbol of their love story.

Stacking Styles: Finding the Perfect Fit

While there's no single "right" way to wear your engagement ring and wedding band, popular stacking styles offer inspiration:

  • Classic Stack: The most common approach, the classic stack features the wedding band sitting closer to your hand, followed by the engagement ring. This traditional arrangement allows both rings to shine.
  • Nested Stack: For a more integrated look, consider a nested set where the wedding band seamlessly curves around the base of your engagement ring. This style works particularly well with contoured engagement rings. Explore our collection of wedding bands designed to perfectly complement your Lucce Rings engagement ring.

Finding Your Perfect Pairing: Considerations Beyond Style

Beyond aesthetics, consider these factors when choosing how to wear your engagement ring and wedding band:

  • Metal Compatibility: Ensure your rings are made of compatible metals to avoid unnecessary wear and tear. For example, platinum pairs well with platinum, while gold pairs well with gold.
  • Ring Width & Height: Consider the width and height of both rings. Thicker bands might create a bulky look when stacked, while a delicate wedding band might get dwarfed by a large engagement ring. Trying on different combinations is keySchedule an appointment at our private Lucce showroom to try on different engagement ring and wedding band styles and settings.
  • Comfort: Above all, your rings should feel comfortable for everyday wear. Ensure they sit comfortably together without pinching or discomfort.
