Rings have been one of the most common accessories everyone loves to wear. But not many people know how wearing rings on different fingers can mean different things. For instance, wearing a ring on the left ring finger denotes marital status. Similarly, putting rings on each finger has a meaning of its own.
If you didn’t know this until now, no worries. We have jotted down the importance of each finger in wearing rings. Read and decide what you wish to show with your jewellery:
Left Hand Fingers
Let’s start with what the ring on each finger of your left-hand means:
Wearing a ring on the left thumb signifies self-assertion and willpower. It is also open to interpretation. It can be for anything – your profession, married life, or ambition. Most women love to adorn chunky and fancy gold rings on their left thumb to showcase their bold and striking personality.
A ring on the index finger does not specifically denote anything. You can wear a ring for your style. Women often prefer index fingers to wear rings as it is more noticeable. Try a classy ring to show the elegant side of your personality. In palmistry, the index finger is related to ambition and leadership.
Middle fingers are the longest and thus, if you want to adorn stacked rings, you may want to choose this finger. As for significance, there is nothing really specific about wearing rings on the middle finger of your left hand. In palmistry though, the left middle finger represents beauty, responsibility and self-analysis.
This is probably the finger that has a lot of importance associated with it. As the name suggests, the ring finger is specifically meant for rings that signify love, relationships, and marriage. In many cultures, couples put diamond finger ring on each other’s left ring finger as a promise of eternity or a wedding. Many people also wear a chastity ring on their left ring finger to signify abstinence from intimate relationships until they get married.
Pinky (Little) Finger
Pinky rings are also associated with mafia gangs in the culture of organized crime. But again, it is completely up to you what the ring would mean to you.
Let’s start with what the ring on each finger of your right-hand means:
Just like a ring on the left thumb signifies nothing important, a ring on the right thumb means nothing specific. So, take the doubts away and show off your statements rings. It shows you are strong in your beliefs and don’t shy away from accepting your choices.
A ring on right index finger means marriage values in some cultures. In Jewish tradition, wearing ring on this finger leads to a wedding. Usually, they wear a gold band. Some brides later change the ring to their ring finger.
A ring on the middle finger is open to interpretation. So, you can wear a ring based on your birth stone or anything that you like. Again, just like your left middle finger, you can also wear stacked rings or statement rings on the right middle finger to create a distinctive style statement.
While many western cultures reserve the left ring for wedding rings, there are some countries like India, Russia, and Germany believe that the right ring finger signifies love and the promise of eternity.
Pinky (Little) Finger
In some western societies, rings on the right pinky finger signify professional status. You can choose rings with simple bands of iron, silver, stainless steel, or another metal.
Wearing rings is not just about fashion. Connect to an astrologer if you wish to wear rings based on your birth sign. They can suggest the right stone and metals along with the fingers on which you should wear the ring.
