What Hand Do Engagement Rings Go On? Here's the Right (or Left) Answer

At Springer's Jewelers, we've been a part of countless love stories with our exceptional selection of engagement and wedding rings. A common question we encounter from couples embarking on their journey to matrimony is, "What hand do engagement rings go on?" Let's explore this tradition and how it varies across cultures and personal preferences.

A Tradition Rooted in History

  • Traditionally, in many Western cultures, the engagement ring is worn on the left hand's fourth finger

This custom can be traced back to ancient Rome, where it was believed that this finger contained the 'vena amoris' or the 'vein of love,' directly connected to the heart. Wearing the engagement ring on this finger became a symbol of love's unbreakable bond.

  • Cultural variations bring their own practices

For instance, in some Eastern European countries like Russia and Poland, the engagement ring is typically worn on the right hand. This diversity in traditions highlights the beauty of how love is celebrated around the world.

  • At Springer's Jewelers, we honor these diverse traditions with our wide range of engagement rings

Whether you prefer the classic elegance of a solitaire ring for your left hand or a unique design for the right, our collection caters to every style and tradition.

  • While tradition plays a significant role, we believe that the most important aspect is the love the ring symbolizes. 

We encourage couples to choose what feels right for them, whether it's following a family tradition, cultural practice, or creating their own unique way to symbolize their commitment.
