An engagement ring is given to someone at the time of a marriage proposal and the most common type has a diamond or another type of gemstone. It is worn on the third finger of the left hand.

The engagement ring is initially given as a promise to a commitment. The wedding band then is given to honor the commitment. When the wedding band is given it replaces the engagement ring in the closest position to the heart on the wedding finger.
Wedding ring is the real thing. Like, the one you give her in the church &its like a symbol of your love or something. Engagement ring is the one you give to her for proposal, its like saying, "I want to marry you." Hope I helped :]

Additional Notes:

An Engagement ring is usually given as a promise to get married in the future. The Wedding band is given during the wedding ceremony to "seal the deal." The difference between the two is that usually the engagement ring has a large diamond in it and the wedding band is smaller and may or may not come with smaller diamonds in it. The wedding band should fit snuggly next to the engagement ring. Please see the resources/links section to see the difference between JUST an engagement ring and an engagement ring with a wedding band to complete the wedding set.

A wedding band is most usually a gold or silver band with no protruding Gemstone. An engagement ring most usually has a gemstone mounted.


When you just want to buy an engagement ring it's one ring and a set has the engagement ring and the wedding band to match as a set.

The wedding ring is adorned first, followed by the engagement ring. This make the wedding band closer to the woman's heart.

Yes, so that the wedding band can be placed closest to the heart. 2. The engagement ring during the ceremony is placed on the brides right finger. Once the wedding band is given the bride then moves the engagement ring back to the left


The wedding ring goes behind the engagement ring, closest to the heart.


Personal choice I think. I wear my wedding ring first and then my engagement ring



No... an engagement ring is given when someone asks to marry you, you wear it to show you are betrothed or promised to someone. The wedding band you will get on your wedding day, and you will put it on the same finger as your engagement ring, though the band is more plain, whereas the engagement ring normally has a stone or diamond in it. A show of both, shows you are married.



you should return your wedding band as it is the symbol of your marriage but you should not return your engagement ring as that was the symbol of your engagement and you for filled your obligation there


My wedding set (engagement ring and matching wedding band.)


No, at least not until the wedding band is on first.
