The opal in this ring was originally in a different setting which my husband gave to me when our first daughter was born. Opal is my daughter''s birthstone. Neither one of us liked the setting much though, so he snuck it off at a later Christmas to be put into this setting, which I love.

Thank you....
Hubby surprised me with the pink sapphire....I had always wanted a pink sapphire as my engagement ring, but then I fell in love with the wedding set I have now..so that never happened, but I had been hinting and hinting about it and he completely surprised me and gave it to me as a Christmas present. I am working on two shared prong pink sapphire enternity rings, so I can even out my stack on the left w/ the right.Image

Actually after I did this today..I realized I do have a RHR...it''s a 10 stone shared prong diamond band...but I wear it very infrequently...I feel like it doesn''t quite command enough to be worn on it''s own...it may need two eternity bands flanking or something. They are on ''the list''...hehee.

So here is my ''dream'' compilation....attainable after many lottery winnings. Image

Hello :-)
I''m new to being engaged. What does the whole right hand thing mean? Is it just an extra engagement ring you have, and you wear it on your right hand? Or, is it another tradition? Please let me know. Thanks :-) Pretty rings, everyone! :-)

Post by Lynn B » March 6th, 2005, 3:29 am
Hey Uneek...
Here's what the RHR thing is all about (my opinion only, of course... anyone else, please feel free to chime in!)  It has been being promoted recently by DeBeers (another multi-million dollar marketing ploy)... "Women of the world, raise your right hand..." and other slogans along the lines of: "The left hand rocks the cradle; the right hand rules the world..."; the left hand ring signifies committment, the right hand ring symbolizes independence... yadayadayada.  According the DeBeers, the right hand ring (diamonds only, of course! Image ) would also be a ring that a woman buys for herself. 

Well, we all know what we think of DeBeers around here, and the brainwashing propoganda that the fashion magazines are so full of!!!  Image  BUT, we DO love beautiful jewelry... and a right hand ring is just another place to enjoy it!  Image   

And to answer your other question... no it certainly isn't "necessary" for any RHR to be "an extra e-ring"... although it certainly can be!  Some people upgrade but still love and treasure their "old" e-ring, and for them, it can make a very special RHR.  Other people just buy what they like, or have several (or LOTS) of other rings that they wear.  (Jennifer, I'm talking about YOU now!!! Image Image Image

It's whatever you want and whatever you love! 

Lynn

PS Does your user name have any significance to the line of jewelry designed by the company "Uneek"?

And THAT'S my story and I'm sticking to it!

Lots of people went for that other marketing ploy also, since lots of people have three stone - past, present and future - rings.......But I''m with Lynn...the right hand ring is any ring worn on your right hand......the original expression was coined by DeBeers to promote rings which were usually set with a number of smaller diamonds.....

have you ever painted your nails to match it?  i think it''d look really cool!

Me?  Painted my nails blue and white?  Image

My, that would be a bit wild for me...I''m OLD!

Patty, I say give blue a try...you might be surprised at how many compliments you will get.  

Post by Bagpuss » March 6th, 2005, 5:39 am

Like Jennifer, I have too many right hand rings to post them all Image and I plan to keep on collecting them.


What I wear on my right hand depends on what stone is the main element in my other jewellery - earrings, pendant, bracelet. I like stuff to match.


But, if I had to choose just one, it would have to be the sapphire and diamond ring dh gave me on our 25th wedding anniversary.

Bagpuss, I like the way you think.ImageImage  I have a similar "Princess Diana" style sapphire ring that I got for my 4th anniversary but your sapphire is much prettier/a better blue.

Here is my latest rhr. Image

This is one of my right hand rings. Another pic to follow. I love the unusual setting. It also has a euro shank. It''s hard to capture the true blue color on camera.

Here is my RHR.... I probably shouldn''t post it on PS... its a cheapo... but I love the color & I don''t wear a lot of jewelry besides my ering & a nice pendant that my mom gave me so I can''t justify spending a lot of money on a piece of jewelry that I don''t wear all that often...  it''s really a fun piece to wear when the mood strikes and pink has grown on me a lot in the last couple of years!!

Yeah. SO much for "tradition". The original campaign encouraged jewelers to present white metal rings containing small diamonds as "right hand rings". With the understanding that the piece wold contain melee sized diamonds and at leats one over 30 points.

Oh well, the pretext for buyng any sort of non-engagement-like ring is not a bad idea. As if any excusel would be needed Image

There's no rule, and color makes allot of sense for these ocasional-wear ring, I would think. Just look at this thred !  Image   It could easily be moved on the colored stone forum already.
