Where to Wear an Anniversary Ring

Anniversary rings are a gorgeous addition to a wedding set and symbolize the many years of unity shared with a spouse. But where do you wear an anniversary band? Does the ring slide next to a wedding set? Or do you wear it solo? Unlike wedding bands and engagement rings, there isn’t a traditional way to wear an anniversary band, nor does etiquette dictate how to wear or style this ring. Here are some style tips to help you decide how to display this sparkling new addition.

Wedding Set Stack

Look to your wedding set for a stackable option. If your engagement ring is designed as a solitaire, stacking your anniversary band on top with the wedding band on the bottom is a stunning option. We love this look if your wedding band is a simple band or if it features a row of channel or pave set stones with diamonds, gemstones, or both. A solitaire engagement ring gives you a nice blank canvas for stacking other rings, and we love the look of multiple bands with a solitaire diamond. If your engagement ring features a more unique or complicated design, such as a bold halo or perhaps a curving band such as an infinity ring, stacking your new band might not be ideal or even possible. Which means…

Right Hand Anniversary Rings

When engagement rings don’t allow for stacking an anniversary band, you can wear the new band on your right-hand ring finger. This also allows the new ring to take center stage, which is fantastic for diamond or gemstone infinity bands. Bigger, bolder anniversary rings—we’re talking about heavy carat weights!—should stand solo. Pairing a massive band against your engagement ring overwhelms both rings.

Go Solo on the Left Hand

Some men and women take off their wedding set and wear only their anniversary band on their left ring finger. This is a popular choice if you’re looking for a simple statement. Sometimes an anniversary ring is meant to replace the engagement ring, but still, be worn with the wedding ring. Some are designed by taking an engagement and wedding band and fusing the two designs into one bold ring. In this case, the newly re-styled anniversary ring can shine solo on the left hand.

Wear Your Bling on Another Finger

You don’t have to wear your anniversary band on your ring finger. Another option is to size the ring for a different finger, allowing you to wear it on either hand as you see fit. If you stick with your left, this style lets the new ring stand alone while still rocking the original wedding set. Don’t worry, your left hand can never have too many diamonds or gemstones!

So Where Do You Wear an Anniversary Band?

Anywhere you want!

Right-hand rings let the new band take center stage, and many anniversary bands look elegant when stacked atop an engagement ring. Size your ring to a different finger and wear the new ring elsewhere on the left hand. The way you style and wear your anniversary band is up to your personal preference
