What Does Each Finger Ring Symbolize?

Rings are one of the most important elements of jewellery for both men and women. Buying a ring requires consideration to be able to choose one that suits the personality of the wearer, as well as enhances the look of the fingers. Also understand that each finger, as it is different in shape and size, has a different meaning. And, if you know what each finger on our hand means, it would be even easier to find what is right. So, here you go!

Some fingers have a special meaning, while others don’t mean anything at all.

The thumb

Thumb rings are considered symbols of wealth and prominence. Also, thumb rings symbolize friendship and positivity. They also represent power and uniqueness. The selection of thumb rings is limited, making them a rare accessory and a topic of intrigue.

The index finger

This is the first finger of our hands, right after the thumb. There is no certain significance of this ring, but when a ring is worn on this finger, it definitely makes a statement. In fact, there was a time when kings and queens used to wear elaborate rings on their index finger, which visitors would kneel down and kiss as a way to show respect.

The middle finger

A ring on the middle finger is worn to show a sense of balance and stability. All kinds of rings can be worn on this finger; and the rings worn only add to the glamour and an extra sense of style to the garment. The middle ring is in fact an ideal location for an eye catching ring.

The wedding finger

The third finger on the left hand is the wedding finger, which is reserved for the engagement ring, and then the wedding ring. However, there are certain regions and castes that wear the wedding ring on the third finger of the right hand. Depending on where you live, the cultural values of your community, history and tradition of the region, it is decided as to which finger you will wear your engagement ring on. It also depends a lot on your belief system and cultural values. But, the most ancient reason why the third finger was chosen as the wedding finger is because it is believed that a nerve connects the finger to the heart, so a ring worn on this finger symbolizes the promise of matrimony and everlasting love.
