Neither ring is my "style", so I can't help there.  Historically, men's rings are worn on the ring finger, the one next to the pinkie.  Class rings (mostly Service Academies these days) and wedding bands on the left hand. Signet rings tend to go on the pinkie, a hold over from the days when letters and documents were sealed with hot wax.

The left hand preference is likely due to most men being right-handed and back in the day of routinely bearing arms, one wouldn't want anything interfering with your sword hand's grip.

I agree with Native Son on where you should wear your ring - the ring finger.

Given a choice between the two rings you showed, the first one is more masculine; it being more bulky.

I like the second one, as it looks more Celtic and less like the Death Star.  Don't know what's manlier.

I'm no expert, but to me a pinky ring seems effete.

It's like football players slapping each other on the ass.  When you're that tough, you could wear a tutu.

I have to agree with Will the second ring on ring finger. However, you should try to get a ring that goes well with the size of your hand. Large hand larger ring small hand smaller ring. Go to a jewelry store and try on a few rings to see what looks best. The Celtic design looks great with the emerald colored stone.

Not to be offensive, but both rings look cheap. Think simple for a ring, the ring shouldn't wear you.


I like this ring.  Nice choice, Cisco.


I also have a penchant for 4-8 strand puzzle rings.  http://www.amazon.com/Sterling-Silver-Celtic-Puzzle-Sizes/dp/B00023...

My personal choice is this number.

that shield ring is so nice i would get that over the other two i posted if i had the $800 to spend on a ring 

Rings can be worn on almost any finger you like. Traditionally on the ring-finger, obviously, or on the pinkie-finger (although this last, is usually reserved for signet-rings). 

For a general ring, not a specific one like a wedding ring, it's common to wear it on your right hand.  And, most commonly they're worn on the "ring finger" which is the 4th digit.


But, depending on the ring, and a sense of scale, they can be worn on any finger.


My own preference for vintage turquoise means that some of my rings are huge, and I wear the huge rings on my middle finger.  It gives a better sense of balance.  This is my most recent acquisition, and it is a beautiful piece.

There are also, if you're in to that sort of thing, specific meanings for rings worn on specific fingers.


thanks for all the help guys not 100% sure witch ring im going to pic but i now i know i should where it on the right ring finger
