The Hidden Symbolism of Rings and Fingers

With the one exception of putting a wedding band on your left Ring Finger, most people dont know or care about the meaning of where they don their rings. We just get the biggest bling we can and slap it onto whatever finger it fits best. This usually works fine, as few people spend time staring at the rings of another, but you could accidentally be sending some wrong messages, or not seeing something thats right under your nose. By learning how rings can be used and comprehended, you can open up a world of information lurking right below the surface. To break this down, were going to go finger by finger, and hit the most common mores of various large cultures. While smaller, esoteric, or sub-cultures might have different governing rules, it would take an omnibus to capture them all. These are mostly broad strokes, but if you have other cultural norms, please throw them into the comments for our education, because we do so hate to leave people out!
