Ring: which hand?


Traditionally, gold rings are worn on the ring finger of the left hand, although there are exceptions. Already antiques prove that the Greeks wore their rings on the ring finger of the left hand. It was also thought that a vein connected this finger directly to the heart, the path of the "Vena Amoris". This tradition of wearing the ring on this hand was taken up by Christians in which the ring finger was touched by the priest after invoking the trinity "in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. ". In religious marriages, the exchange of wedding rings is the most exciting moment, it is a promise of eternal love by the couple.


a more scientific and practical explanation for the fact that the ring is worn on the left hand, is that it is less used in the daily gestures. Therefore the ring does not disturb.

What happens in Europe?

Conversely, in many European countries, such as the Czech Republic, Spain, Austria, Germany, Hungary, this jewel is worn on the right hand.

Wedding and engagement rings

In general, the wedding ring is worn first on the finger and then engagement ring is worn second. But here too, one can do as they please. It is also possible to wear the wedding ring without an engagement ring, that is, wearing a central diamond on the left hand and on the wedding day, move it with the right hand to give way to the wedding ring.
