Ring finger meaning

The ring finger is undeniably one of the most significant in the world of rings. Whenever romantic gestures and traditions are involved, this hand is adorned with jewelry. It is not called the ring finger for nothing. One theory is that the practice of wearing jewelry on rings of fingers originates from the ancient Romans who believed in a vein from the ring to the heart. While this is not anatomically correct but it has become a habit in our society.

What exactly do rings that are worn on the finger indicate?

The left finger for ringing is reserved for engagement rings. If you notice someone sporting a sparkling diamond on their finger, congratulate them. They're likely to get married soon.

If you notice rings on your right ring finger it is likely to be a wedding band. Wedding rings are easily recognized by their simple designs. Since they are worn every day by a wide range of people they are typically simple comprising a beautiful metal ring in white or gold.

After the wedding, an engagement ring can be still on the left hand, or together with the wedding ring on the finger that holds the ring of the right hand.

Even couples who do intend to marry often choose to wear symbolic jewelry. Rings for partners are increasingly popular, and are used as an alternative to engagement or wedding rings on the fingers of the ring. This is how the beautiful tradition is followed without making a relationship complete "official" by presenting wedding certificates.

Meaning of a ring on the middle finger

Many people are confused by the ring on their middle finger. The short answer is no. Contrary to the ring finger, no special significance is attached to the middle finger. Therefore, anyone who wears rings on this finger, regardless of which hand - does so more to serve a practical purpose.

Maybe the ring sits better on this finger than on the middle finger, or it looks better there. The middle finger is a great place to wear other pieces of jewelry even if the ring is already in use as an engagement or wedding band.

Rings on the thumb, or little finger

Rings that are worn on the thumb or small finger isn't a symbolism. The ring finger has always been the only one that can show off significant jewelry.

However, as there aren't any rules for wearing the latest trends like rings for partners, it could occur that a ring for a partner - which does mean something to couples - is put on the thumb or a little finger.

Jewelry can be significant even if the rings or fingers worn on do not have a traditional significance. Since jewelry is often given as a gift during special occasions or as a memento of a specific person. It could be a gift from your grandparents, an heirloom, a token for friendship, a token to commemorate a significant life event, or a family crest.

If you are interested, ask about an engagement ring. Maybe there is a story behind the ring! In any case, you'll learn something about the person you're conversing with and create an excellent way to start an interesting conversation.
