i'm planning on proposing to my girlfriend of four years. all of a sudden i realized that proposing requires a lot of preperation
do all women wear thier engagement ring on the left hand or can it be worn on the right hand? (to keep it from harm)
the reason this is important is that the jeweller has warned me that once the ring is made, the size can not be changed (due to the design we've discussed).
i've attached an image of a similar style for the curious
so i need to figure out which hand to have it made for.

thank you both for the advice. it was quite reassuring. my east indian heritage doesn't have a tradition for diamond engagement rings, so this forum has been invaluable.
the style of ring i've chosen is apparantly popular as an anniversary ring according to a friend of mine. it's called an "eternity ring".
the particular situation with my girlfriend has had me quite apprehensive about how to go about this because she is adamant that she doesn't want a diamond engagement ring, and that she doesn't find rings with portruding stones appealing.
well for the style, i know she likes slick modernism, but as for diamonds, all my girl friends tell me that a lot of girls say they don't want rings but really they do!
so i figure that i'll play it safe and get a ring, so she doesn't miss out on this important tradition (and frankly, i'm really enjoying doing all this behind her back!!) but get something a little sleek and unassuming. (and if she turns out to want a big diamond, we can do that together once we're done grad school and working!)
it's nice to have a place to talk about this.
