Margot Mckinney Opal Ring
|Simply, right hand rings are any rings that are worn on the right hand. Often the term is used for cocktail rings – big statement rings that are set with bold, colourful gemstones.|
| Usually these are rings that women have bought for themselves. Wearing them on the right hand is a way of ensuring that they are not confused with an engagement ring or wedding band. While the term ‘right hand ring’ is a relatively new one, the idea of wearing a ring on the right hand to signify a woman’s economic independence has its roots in the original cocktail rings of the 1920s.|
Traditionally, each finger had its own symbolism, with the index finger reserved for membership rings, and a thumb ring being seen as a sign of wealth and power. A ring worn on the right pinkie can indicate professional status.
