Wearing wedding rings

posted on 22nd of january, 2009

In Russia we wear wedding rings on the third finger of the right hand. In America and many other countries it's on the left hand, third finger. And I just wonder - in your country how do you wear your wedding rings (or what you wear instead of them)?

Thanks, Mayatairy. It's really interesting and explains some DT wedding photos.
I wonder if ring position on the photo affects sales :)

Well, in Israel, during the wedding ceremony the groom puts the wedding ring on his bride's first finger of right hand, and after the "Huppah" ceremony the bride pass it on to the third finger of the right hand. where is suppose to be for the rest of their lives :-) however with the divorce statistics climbing so dramatically, the rings just keep on coming and going LOL :-)
