Put a Ring on it

Why you should wear a ring on your index finger, and what it says about you.

July 14, 2017
Rings are subtle statement makers – they are not loud like statement earrings or necklaces, but for those who come close enough to see them on your fingers, they won’t go unnoticed.

We might be more familiar with seeing a ring on a ring finger, but throughout history index finger rings have decorated the index fingers of leaders and influential personalities. The astrological association for the index finger is Jupiter, which symbolizes power, leadership, and authority. So, symbolically, wearing a ring on your index fingers reflects confidence but not in an over-the-top way. The index finger on the right hand is considered the center of power and is the most distinguished finger (unless you’re left-handed, that is).

Even if you’re not a believer in hidden symbolism, you’ll appreciate that, in terms of practicality, wearing a ring on the index finger is less of a hassle than wearing one on the middle finger, which hampers your ability to move the finger easily, being wedged between the ring finger and the index finger. Try clenching your fist while wearing a ring on your middle finger – not very comfortable, is it?
Fashion-wise, wearing index finger rings is a way to make a subtle yet significant statement. It piques people’s curiosity without demanding too much attention. Unlike the ring finger, there are no rules regarding what rings you ought to wear on your index finger. It can be an edgy and bold diamond ring, a simple silver band, or anything inbetween.

Need some pointers? A casual summer look of a white shirt and linen pants goes well with a white gold index finger ring with diamonds, for example; in contrast, on a work day, a dark suit or pencil-shaped skirt can be matched with a white gold ring with emerald-cut diamonds. 

For special occasions, try pairing a stack of pink gold rings with diamonds with white ones, or you can glam up a bit by wearing a stack of white gold rings with various shapes of diamonds to complement your elegant evening gown. No matter what ring you choose to wear or how you wear it – stacked or singularly - a ring on the index finger is sure to get noticed.
