Twifans Want to Know: Why is Bella's Engagement Ring on the Right Hand?

After seeing the a sliver of the new one-sheets that included a detailed view of Bella's engagement ring yesterday, fans started commenting and tweeting their worry as to why the ring is on the right hand and not the traditional left. Fans were already thinking we had our first movie mistake!  You ask if this matters?  Well, to TwiFans it does. 


Fan speculation is that, the reason Bella would be wearing her engagement ring on the opposite finger would have to be due to the fact that no wedding band would fit along side the large oval engagement ring.  Sorry Edward's Mom, the ring isn't perfect for an adjoining set.   I admit that I never really thought about it.  I just assumed that Bella's engagement ring was her wedding ring, until yesterday.


After much twitter debate, we decided it was time to ask a person that could ask the source, Jack Morrissey, partner to 'Breaking Dawn' director, Bill Condon.  Ask Bill about Bella's ring for us please: Does Bella wear both after the wedding or does she ditch the engagement ring?  Twilight Examiner got confirmation that Bella moves her engagement ring to the right hand in the 1-shots we see tonight. Fans think that Bella removes the engagement ring in the honeymoon clip. See the confusion. 


Jack Morrissey:  She definitely removes it onscreen before she goes out to the beach with Edward, yes. Thanks, but does she continue to wear two rings through-out the movie?


Jack Morrissey:  Per Bill [Condon] just now, she wears both rings post-wedding, except for two scenes.  Now we can all over-analyze the scenes and TRY to decide those 2 [scenes].


Jack Morrissey: You already know them both.  hanky panky & hanky panky? lol




Here are 'Breaking Dawn' official movie stills where we can see that Bella is not wearing the big engagement ring:


Calling Carlisle:

In the waterfall:

There are so many waterfall stills.  I wonder what happens there.

Playing chess:

That is just a few.  It looks like it's a little more than two scenes....


"Oops, those might be two more scenes then. He's often not the best person to ask this sort of question to." says Jack.

bella's engagement is still on her right hand until they get married then they will have both their wedding bands on the right hand ... some people will just have to watch the movie and find out what happens when it comes in to theatres on november 18, 2011 of this year ... 68 days left

either they flipped the image in the trailer and photos, or its because her wedding band and engagement ring obviously arent a set, did they even have those when edwards dad proposed to edwards mum? and if the image is flipped, and she is only wearing her engagement ring, remember in the book she mentioned edward liked that she still wore her engagement ring. maybe thats why. oh but then when bella goes to find jenks, the guy with the phone glances at her hand and notices her wedding band. oh my gosh i'm confused now!!! i'm sure its not a mistake though, they cant have made one that huge! mistakes are usually little ones that only us twifans notice ;)

Bella's actually wearing her rings the right way!! The "Real" way to wear a wedding ad Engagment ring is to wear the Engagment ring on your left hand but when you get married have it on the right hand and your wedding ring on the left but alot of people wear them on the same finger nowadays
Besides if she did wear them on the same finger you wouldn't be able to see her wedding ring cause her an garment ring is soo big!! Lol
