Rings and Finger Significance

Are you someone who loves to wear with rings?  I know I do!  And did you know that each finger has a particular significance?   The specific finger the ring adorns carries deep meaning. Through the ages, people have slipped rings onto particular fingers to indicate authority, relationship status, religious expression, social standing, and much more.  
Ring finger

It is the fourth finger of human hand and people call it ring finger because it is believed that this finger of the left hand has a direct connection with the heart. It is a magical finger that a married couple wears rings on it to declare their eternal love for each other. This finger is also called Apollo because Apollo is the cultivation of love, beauty and energy. Wearing a ring on the right hand would help you to become more optimistic in your life. And it is advised that moonstone and jade are the perfect stones for the ring.

As the first finger of human hand, it is the most independent finger. The thumb is connected with inner heart of a person. Wearing a ring on this finger on left hand indicates that you like to impose your will on others. Whatever, it will help boost your willpower. And you can wear it on the other thumb to show your ability to submit others' will. But please be attentive to any changes that occur in the time if you are wearing a ring on this finger. Perfect stones for thumb are ruby and garnet.

Index finger

This second finger is related to Jupiter which represents a certain kind of power. Kings in the ancient times wore rings on their index finger to show their power. Wearing a ring on this finger on the left hand means owning the ability to lead and the confidence that other will follow your leadership. And it represents being willing to take a less dominant role if you wear a ring on the other index finger. Blue topaz and amethyst rings are good for this finger.

Middle finger

It is related to Saturn and symbolizes a balanced life. Wearing a ring on the left middle finger represents the ability to tell right from wrong. While wearing it on the right middle finger means the tendency to look to others to provide guidance. It's better for you to wear quartz and coral ring on this finger.


People connect this finger with Mercury who is the energy of communication. And wearing a ring on the left little finger indicates you are a strong communicator, while wearing a ring on the right little finger means you are easy to understand what others are trying to explain.
