DWZI a Wedding Ring

After reminiscing about my brother's beautiful wedding, I could not help but looking down at my ring finger often this week.

My new wedding ring proudly on display.

We've been married for 8 years and in all this time I always only ever wore my engagement ring. Simply because we never got around to buying me a wedding ring. And that was fine, I really love my engagement ring.

In South Africa everyone just wears their wedding rings on their left hands. However, in the Netherlands most people wear their wedding bands on their right hands.  So that left me with a empty ring finger on my right hand. Better to wear a ring on each hand, right? 

So finally, finally, finally we found a beautiful ring while on vacation and I now wear it day and night. 


Have a fabulous weekend!

  1. haha en zo komt het toch nog goed! Leuk toch ook na al die jaren!

  2. Dat is speciaal na al die jaren!!
    Leuk zeg!

  3. Wat leuk dat jullie dé ring tegen zijn gekomen.
    Wij (man en ik) dragen onze trouwring links omdat 'men' van oudsher zegt dat de linkerhand dichterbij het hart zit. Vonden we een romantisch idee. De oude Egyptenaren dachten zelfs dat vanuit de linkerringvinger de ader van de liefde rechtstreeks naar het hart liep.

    Liefs MamaNatuurlijk

  4. I’d love to see what your wedding rings and your engagement rings look like? Do they have gemstones on them? Are they gold or silver? I know a lot of people, who wear both rings on one hand. Some of them really go to a lot of lengths to get them to match, so that they can wear them together on one finger. I prefer to wear rings on separate fingers though, like you. It just feels more balanced, haha!
