About Engagement Rings
Most people wear their engagement ring on the ring finger of their left hand throughout the engagement, and add the wedding ring during the ceremony. Usually, the engagement ring features a diamond in a raised setting, like the famous Tiffany setting, and the wedding ring is a flat band. However, in contemporary times, many couples adapt or completely change these traditions to suit their tastes.
