The Meaning of Ring Position

In Kenya, wearing a ring on a specific finger has a unique meaning. If you wear a ring on your thumb, that means that you are lonely. A ring on your index finger will tell people that you have recently been dumped, although why you would want to advertise this is beyond me. A ring around your middle finger alerts those who might be interested that you are in a relationship, probably a sexual one. Your fourth finger when adorned by a ring still symbolizes being married. A pinky ring means that you are engaged. I wear my purity ring around my left-hand thumb, and this caught attention from some of the girls. They then informed me that according to the ring tradition, I was advertising loneliness! That was quite a joke to them.
