Right Hand Rings

In the United States, women have traditionally worn a ring on their left hand. The reason is because the left hand is where wedding rings are worn. However, over the last two decades, more and more women are wearing right hand rings. While a left hand ring is a symbol of commitment and marriage, a right hand ring is a symbol of freedom and independence.

Although the popularity of right hand rings has substantially increased over the last two decades, the concept of wearing a right hand ring is not a new one. All the way back in the 16th century, women wore rings on their right hand as a symbol of their heightened status. Today, Hollywood leading ladies like Keira Knightley and Angelina Jolie wear right hand rings to solidify their status as bold, accomplished women.

The great thing about right hand rings is that they can be worn by any type of woman. If a woman is single and proud of being independent, she can wear a right hand ring to symbolize that she is a modern woman who is capable of forging her own path of success. If a woman is happily married, she can wear a right hand ring in addition to the wedding ring she wears on her left hand. For a married woman, a right hand ring can be a birthstone ring for her child. Her right hand ring can also be a symbol that although she is happy in her role as a wife, that is not the only component of her identity.

Another great feature of a right hand ring is the flexibility of how it can be worn. While a left hand ring is almost always worn on the third finger, this doesn’t have to be the case with a right hand ring. Although it can be worn on the right hand’s ring finger, it can also be worn on the index or middle finger.
