    hi hi kris,

    wedding ring/band is worn on the 4th finger (ring finger) of the left hand.

    technically when your guy proposes and you accept his proposal, you're engaged. the ring which he proposes with = engagement ring.

    ROM = legally married so you'll need a pair of wedding bands/rings during your ROM.

    hope this helps.

      heard it is on left (4th finger) because there is a running vein from one's heart so it is to signify something.

            it is believed by the ancient egyptians that on the 4th finger of the left hand, a vein leads directly to the heart hence explains why wedding bands are worn on the ring finger.

              hi kris

              wedding ring or engagement ring should be worn on fourth finger on left hand.

              Usually, engagement, guy will propose with diamond ring (but not necessary)
              then ROM, guy + girl will exchange wedding ring (usually a band with or without diamond)

              If your ROM date is not the same as traditional ceremony date, no need for an additional ring.

                  In singapore when you ROM, they will actually tell you which hand and finger it is. As bf/ gf, you can wear a toe ring for all anyone cares

                      An engagement ring (e-ring) is actually a Western tradition, so therefore traditionally one should follow the western way of wearing the rings. The e-ring should be worn on the left fourth finger which is the ring finger. If you have a seperate wedding band, then the wedding band should be worn first (closest to the heart) then the e-ring.

                      However, as this is the 21st century, you really can wear the e-ring on whichever finger you want.

                      HTH

                            note my friend had this problem she acutally wore a glove on her wedding day & the band was too small so she had to buy a silver one just for that day as props haha! but i think now with thinner material gloves might be ai ok! but just a thought you might need this tip.
