ok i found this on wiki about which finger to wear the wedding ring

In most Western cultures, the wedding ring is worn on the left hand. In some countries, however (such as Germany, Norway, and Chile), it is worn on the right hand. Orthodox Christians, Hindus, East Europeans and Jews also wear the wedding band on the right hand traditionally.

Yes, most of the US engagement rings are diamonds. Usually, it is hard to find a decent engagement ring of quality with another stone. Plus, not everyone will recognize it as an engagement ring either. I went to 25 jewelry stores shopping for an engagement ring about 2 years ago. I only saw one other stone and that was a sapphire. But it was used as an accompanying stone with a diamond. I think after all these years it is a bit of Princess Diana's influence yet. Many celebs are doing colored stones, but it hasn't trickeled down yet. Maybe in the future.

I wanted my engagement ring to be really unique. I also wanted 3 stones. But in the end I bought a ring that looked antique with hand engraving and scroll work around the band and a diamond in the center with smaller diamonds down the side. It is platinum and yellow gold. I really like it b/c it was very unique. Many people were suprised it was my engagement ring. But that is why I love it. I don't think that you can really find a decent engagement ring that isn't a diamond here. Maybe in really large cities or on the coast but not everyday. However, maybe it will change. And I suppose you can always get one custom made.

Does anyone have a close up of Mabel's and Laurentian's of the Netherlands engagement rings? We've seen them from a distance in official potraits but nothing close up to see the details. Anyone have one??

I like the fact that camilla's ring is an heirloom, but its so old fashioned. I reallly think she should have gone for a more modern, less stiff setting.

the ring is very similar of Diana's ring. This ring wasn't from Infanta Pilar?

I think Mary of Denmark's engagement ring is lovely as I hate huge gaudy rings e.g Diana's, Camilla's etc. However I dislike wedding bands that are covered in diamonds as I think they look tacky so I'm not a fan of her wedding ring. I think you can't beat a simple traditional gold band and think one of these would have looked so much more tasteful with her engagement ring.

Cristina's ring and Letizia's ring are alike, I think is because both are practical women who like to do their own things so a big rock would get in the way!!

Does Letizia just have a band or was that also her engagement ring? Also, is is it a custom to wear wedding rings on the right hand in some countries, because I noticed Letizia was wearing hers on her left and I think I noticed a couple of other royals doing the same thing. Thanks!

I think Princess Soraya's ring is awful. It looks like a piece of glass. Tacky.

Letizia uses her engagement ring on the left hand and her wedding band on the right. (On the wedding ceremony, they put the bands on each other's right fingers, Felipe now uses his on the left, but Letizia keeps hers on the right)

This is her band (Casa Real & Corbis)

In Spain (like in Portugal and other countries) the wedding rings look all like the same: simple yellow gold bands... the precious stones are left for the engagement rings...

I thought the same, when I saw it... perhaps it's due to the fact that all the other diamond hearts are placed in the same direction...

I agree this is my favourite one (although I also liked Letizia's/Cristina's very much, but this one is far more special and unique
).
