Rings are one of the oldest and most popular forms of ornamentation available to people from all walks of life. A ring is actually a simple round band, typically of precious metal, often with precious stones set into it. The word “ring” on its own denotes all jewellery worn in or on the hand; when worn on another body part, the same body part is defined within the word, e.g., finger rings, belly rings, toe rings, earrings, wrist rings, and neck rings. Ring styles and designs can vary immensely, depending on how much finery is added and what type of stones and/or metal is used.
Many different types of ring styles exist for various fingers and hand positions. In the United States, ring wear is typically worn either on the left hand’s fourth finger or the ring finger of the right hand. In Western cultures, the fourth finger is referred to as “the ring finger.” (In Roman culture, it is callediceps.) This finger contains nerves, which are connected to other parts of the body through blood vessels, and to the brain via the spinal cord. (The spinal cord is connected to the brain through the spinal column.)
Statement rings can be very beautiful, although they are also often quite delicate. Many people do not wear statement rings because they are frightened that they will lose their fingers if they hold onto the statement ring too tightly. However, this is simply not the case: holding onto a statement ring too tightly will not damage your fingers; the rings are designed to be comfortable and stay in place without irritating the skin.
When a woman wears rings on her right middle finger, her ring finger may appear shorter than the rest of her fingers. Women who wear rings on their left hand’s fourth finger appear to have longer fingers than the average person. It has long been thought that wearing rings on the opposite hand makes a woman appear more feminine. (Women who wear rings on their right hands appear to have longer fingers.) However, there is no basis for this belief.
Men and women can wear different rings even when they are of the same sex. For example, a woman can wear a woman’s ring on her left thumb, a man can wear a men’s ring on his left thumb, or the woman can wear a man’s ring on her right thumb. (The thumb refers to the section of the thumb between the little and the big toe.) If you are left handed, you do not need to learn how to wear a ring on your dominant hand, since you can wear a ring on any hand that feels comfortable. (If you are right handed, however, you must learn how to wear a ring on your dominant hand.)
If you want to wear wedding bands, then it is important that you choose the correct type of ring. There are four styles of rings: the band, the engagement ring, the wedding band, and the eternity ring. The band is the most conventional style of ring. In recent years, more women have chosen to add an extra gem to their rings: the birthstone. Eternity rings represent a love of the Earth and are worn by many women who are interested in green jewelry.
