Ready to learn more in the next few minutes than 95% of men in the world?

Good, let’s get started.

First… How Many Rings Can a Man Wear On His Hand?

It really depends, being said there are some rules to follow.

  1. Two to three spread out across both hands is a safe max.
  2. Quality over quantity.
  3. Do not stack rings on one finger unless they are thin rings that are meant to do so. 

Right Hand vs. Left Hand 

This is an issue amongst cultures. Using wedding rings as an example, Americans wear their bands on their left hand while Eastern Orthodox church members wear their wedding band on their right 

You don’t really have to worry about it, it’s really not that a big deal. You can choose either hand.

If you cannot decide, in terms of symbolism, the right hand is the “physical hand” while the left hand is the “mental” hand.


Now For the Good Stuff - Which Finger Should You Use?

Using your left hand – let’s go left to right.

The Pinky FingerPink Ring

Meant for statement rings. Rings on this finger have no cultural or religious associations. This finger is also great because it does not interfere with the rest of your fingers.

As it stands out from the rest of your fingers use it wear your flashiest rings. You want people to pay attention to them. You know, show off your style.  







The Fourth FingerFourth Finger

Mainly used for the wedding ring in North America. Simple rings that end up on this finger are often taken as wedding bands. Although, if you wear a decorative ring it will not be taken as one.






The Middle Finger

The boldest finger of the bunch. Simple rings are suited for the middle finger as it can interfere with the index finger. It is a mainly finger though and first time ring wearers will feel comfortable using this.

The middle finger provides a nice symbolism of balance. If you’re also giving people the finger a lot it’ll help make it stand out… 



The Index or Pointer Finger

A good position because it doesn’t interfere with any other of the fingers. But it is used on a commonly used finger. Primarily this finger is used for rings such as class 

rings, family crests, and fraternal rings.






The Thumb 

Not really used in North American culture. Other than here they are fairly common worldwide. In many countries, it’s seen as a symbol of wealth and influence. 

Thumb rings are usually larger, meaning they are usually broad or bulky to fit with the thumb.






Well… that’s it.
