Rings are just a fashion accessory for many individuals. At other times, they are worn as symbols of marriage and other relationships. But other people consider ring placement in more depth: the finger where a ring is worn and the hand on which it is placed can represent different personality traits.
The Yin and The Yang
When a right-handed person wears rings, the left hand is the yin and the right hand is the yang. A ring on the yin hand represents receiving a certain skill or trait. A ring on the yang hand represents giving those skills or traits to others. For a left-handed individual, the right hand is the yin and the left hand is the yang.
The index finger represents the ability to lead. Wearing the ring on the index finger also represents the desire to have power and a strong sense of self-esteem. Wearing a ring on the yin hand's index finger represents having the ability to lead and demonstrating leadership traits, and the confidence that others will follow your leadership. Wearing a ring on the index finger of the yang hand represents being receptive to others' leadership and being willing to take a less dominant role.
Wearing a ring on the middle finger of the yin hand represents the ability to tell the difference between right and wrong and having the authority to determine what is right and wrong. Wearing the ring on the middle finger of the yang hand indicates the tendency to look to others to provide guidance about what is right and wrong and what is legal.
Wearing a ring on the ring finger of your yin hand indicates that you are creative and can use your creativity to solve problems and challenges. Wearing it on the yang hand's ring finger indicates that you are able to teach others how to be creative and bring out their best creative abilities.
Wearing a ring on the pinky of your yin hand indicates that you are a strong communicator and you can use your communications skills to get what you want from others and lead them to do as you ask. Wearing it on the yang hand's pinky indicates the ability to be led very easily and to understand what others are trying to communicate.
Wearing a ring on the thumb of your yin hand indicates that you are very assertive and impose your own will on others, sometimes using force. Wearing a ring on the thumb of your yang hand shows the ability to submit to others' wills.
