A Deeper Symbolism The His And Hers Matching rings Finger Represents

Understanding the symbolism of the Matching Couple Necklaces gives this custom more depth. The circular shape of the ring is the eternal love that never ends. But why is the fourth finger and more specifically, why on the left hand?

According to Dr. Jane R. Lewis an anthropologist of renown, "The left hand is often seen as secondary to the right hand in a lot of cultures. It is the hand that is considered to be the other. By placing the wedding band on the left hand we symbolize that love and commitment is distinct from the more commonly right-handed gestures in everyday life. It's a physical reminder of the unique and unique bond of marriage."


The fourth finger's perceived connection to the heart, as discussed earlier, is a powerful symbol. This direct connection to the heart demonstrates that our love and dedication are not just surface-level emotions but deeply embedded in our hearts.

There are many interpretations of the significance of the wedding finger of the ring. The journey of the ring from fingers to the fourth finger could be a signifying point for some couples. From the first spark (a touch on the fingers) to the deep bond and commitment (the fourth finger with the heart-connected).

These symbolic interpretations transform the wedding ring finger to more than just an accessory. It's a constant reminder of love and commitment, as well as the journey that you share with your partner.

Adapting Tradition The Modern Take on the Wedding Ring Finger

The tradition of wearing the wedding ring on only one finger has evolved over time, just like all other traditions. In our modern, multi-cultural society the "rules" regarding the wedding finger, are not as rigid and more influenced by cultural background and personal preferences.

In today's society, it is not uncommon for couples or even individuals to choose which hand or finger their wedding ring will be positioned on. The reason for this can be based on the tradition of their culture or personal preferences, practicality, or even a desire to alter symbols and traditions in a way that matches their unique relationship and personal identity.

A relationship therapist, Dr. Sarah R. Young states, "In my practice, I encourage couples to take a decision about their wedding traditions including the wedding ring finger. This choice can become an intimate conversation between the couple about what their vows look as and how they intend to express it. There's a certain power in altering symbols to make them personally significant."

Modern versions of the wedding ring finger traditions don't diminish its significance, but add personal meaning. If the meaning is in line with the couple's fidelity and mutual understanding, the finger or hand isn't a factor.
