The ring finger is without doubt the most important in the world of rings. The ring finger is often embellished with a piece of jewelry when romantic gestures or traditions are in play. The ring finger isn't named for nothing. One theory is that the custom of wearing jewelry on the finger rings originates from the Romans who believed in a vein connecting the ring to the heart. Although this isn't true anatomically, it has become a habit in our society.

The left finger of the ring is reserved for engagement rings. If you notice someone sporting a sparkling diamond on this finger, be sure to congratulate them. They're likely to be getting married soon.

This is a beautiful method of keeping the tradition without the need to make a marriage "official" by obtaining an official marriage certificate.
