Today I blindsided by something I hadn't thought about too much, what to do with my engagement and wedding rings now that my husband is gone and when do I stop wearing them. Today I had to take them of to get them cleaned and inspected (I lost Ray February 2014). I started to panic when the jeweler suggested I keep them off and them them resized. I was panicking just the 5 minutes they were off. Then my boss mentioned that she thought widows were suppose to wear their engagement ring/wedding ring on their right hand now. has anyone heard this? It threw me off guard. Also made me sad and panicked; when i put these on it was forever. I haven't even been able to stop wearing his wedding ring on a chain daily, how do I deal with this? Anyone have any ideas/experience in this?
It's been just over a year since my wife passed, I remember for a few months I wore my wedding ring, but somewhere along the line took to wearing her ring on my right hand (pinky, the only finger that it fits) I always have it on when I go out, off and on in the house. I suppose it makes me feel a bit closer to her.
