The Egyptians wore the wedding ring on the left hand because it was believed that a vein in the left hand went straight to the heart. This tradition is still commonly practiced today in most parts of the world largely for practical purposes (most people are right handed.) It is worn on the fourth finger of the left hand. But there are some countries and groups which do not follow this tradition. In the Jewish faith, the wedding ring is put on the index finger. Roman Catholics traditionally wore their wedding band on the right hand, and in many countries and regions in Europe some people still follow this tradition.
Women’s diamond wedding ring sets are usually sold as a set, but they are still two separate rings – the engagement ring and the wedding band. However, after the wedding, or even right before if you prefer, you can have the two rings joined together so they essentially become one ring and are always attached and perfectly aligned.
So, next time, don’t judge the marital status of a male by the absence of ring on his finger and always remember that wearing one or not wearing one can be a personal choice unaffected by the societal norms. By now, you know who in the royal family wears a ring and who doesn’t but do you also know about the fact that there’s a tradition according to which the young boys belonging to the upper class, aristocracy and royals are supposed to wear shorts and not doing so is considered ”suburban”. And if you have guessed that this is why Prince George is always seen in shorts, give yourself a pat on the back because you are absolutely right. So, in this case, it is not his choice but the tradition.
