A lot of people are confused as to where to put the engagement ring and the wedding ring. Is it on the left ring finger or on the right? If you’re one of those people who are not sure where the right place is, here’s a simple guide.


There are two rings that symbolize Marriage: The Engagement and the Wedding Ring

The engagement ring is a sign of promise of marriage. A symbol of the commitment to join as one in a lifelong relationship as husband and wife.

The wedding ring is one of the most vital pieces of jewelry in your lifetime. It symbolizes the promise and commitment you and your partner have made for each other for life.The wedding ring goes on the left ring finger because it is the only finger with a vein that connects to the heart.

Why should we wear the Marriage Rings on the fourth finger?

1. The thumb represents your parents.
2. The second or index finger represents your siblings.
3. The middle finger represents you.
4. The fourth and ring finger represents your life partner.
5. Little finger represents your children.

There is a beautiful and convincing explanation given by the Chinese.

Open your palms (face to face), bend the middle fingers and hold them together, back to back. Open and hold the remaining three fingers and the thumb – tip to tip.
Join your little fingers and try to separate your ring fingers, which are representing your spouse. You will be surprised to see that only the fourth finger cannot be separated, because the husband and wife are meant to be together all their lives – through thick and thin!

If you’re looking for the perfect ring to symbolize your love to your partner or even to your loved ones, look no further. Check out the list we have below:
