Ring on the middle finger?Page 1 of 1    
Ok...I think only you ladies can answer this as I've searched the web and found nothing.
What does it mean when a woman wears a ring on her middle finger (the FU finger) on her left hand? I know engagement and marriage rings are worn on the ring finger (next to the pinky) but the middle? Oh and yeah...lets say its a diamond or at least it looks like one.

Tks.

I like to wear rings, and I usually just wear them on whatever finger they fit the best. If there's some secret meaning to wearing it on the middle finger, I'm not aware of it.

it probably means she liked the ring and thats where it fitted...lol If i see a ring i like i will wear it on whatever finger it fits on. If you have a look at my profile pic you will see rings on 3 fingers on my left hand, they mean nothing, i just like them...

Understood. See...from what I read, class/school rings are to be worn on the ring finger of the right hand. I just figured that different fingers on different hands have specific meanings.

Nope! No meaning for that finger...

I actually had one specifially made to fit my middle finger because I think it elongates the hand...call me crazy! (No...don't! I take that back!...hehe)

May I ask if there is a reason you're asking this OP?

P.S.
Did it LOOK like an engagement ring???

Very true....
...don't know if you saw my "P.S." but if not....did it look like an engagement ring? They're pretty distinctive. If so, it could be that she just REALLY likes the ring because it's 'pretty'....know what I mean?

Don't worry about it, there, OP.

I was wondering that very same thing a little while back.

When I asked the girl that made me think about it (in a suave way, of course :P), she told me it was her grandmother's ring. And one on her other hand was her friend's.

So I've found that some women wear rings that have significance to (other) loved ones, not just those they are married to or intend to marry.

But at least you did better than me. I myself thought that the middle finger was "the" ring finger. I blame The Simpsons. They only have 4 fingers (including the thumb), so their middle one is their ring finger, and what I learned I took from all their wedding episodes lol

Ooops, yeah I did miss the P.S.
No, I dont think it was an engagement ring, I just saw a girl wear one that 'kinda' looked like it on that finger and wondered.

ohhhh...okay...well then

The question is:
Do you feel better now or is there impending thoughts still running through your mind?

hehe...they always say that so you'll come back! (cha-ching)
Is it pretty in your world!
Green stars? Yellow moons?
(Oh man! I haven't had Lucky Charms for so long I forgot the shape & colour combos!)
Blue Diamonds?...
not to be taken the wrong way of course! Just a pun on diamonds...

It's to emphasize my FU. :)

No, seriously, I have a ring on the middle finger of my left hand because I bought the ring when I had a ring on the ring finger of my left hand, had the new ring sized for the ring finger on my right hand, then later took the ring off my left ring finger, and switched the new ring to my left hand, where it only fits my middle finger. Being right-handed I'd rather have rings on my left hand than my right.

The only convention I know in ring placement, other than the marriage one, is that engineers wear their ring on the pinky of their working hand.

OP, it means they like that ring and they like it on that finger...not everything has some complicated meaning.

Nothing. It means she likes rings, but wants to signal she is single by keeping her RING FINGER unoccupied. Clarify this with her if you're not sure.

I have numerous rings & wear them to match my outfit of the day. I wear them on the fingers they fit. I DO have several rings that I have had sized because my fingers are so small. However, I have some rings that I wear where they fit the best.

It means she likes to wear rings. Don't think too deep on this.

Holy man, you're everywhere!!!
but besides that!

The middle finger has a meaning!
and it's different from left and right hand...

middle finger left hand:
engagement ring = the wedding was called off and he allowed her to keep the ring.
wedding band=she's a widow

middle finger right hand, index and sometimes pinky both hand:
usually means friendship ring
yes, the graduation ring was right on another comment you made!

but not everyone wears it for the meaning but because it fits!

If it has diamonds, it is so she can flip you off with class.

Seriously, no finger has meaning for a ring but the left ring.
I got out of the habit of wearing any rings because of my job. I have to wear gloves and wash my hands about 20 times a day, so it became a nuisance. But when I did,
it was usually my middle because it didn't get in the way and was the most comfortable.
