The engagement ring is almost always worn on the ring finger, but depending on where you reside, the hand it is worn on may differ. In most countries, the engagement ring is worn on the left-hand ring finger. In Germany and Austria, the right-hand ring finger is typically reserved for the wedding band, which differs from most other countries that will also wear the wedding band on the left-hand ring finger with the engagement ring. While it is ultimately your own personal choice, no matter which hand you wear your engagement ring on, the symbolism of it remains the same. It remains to be a highly regarded piece of jewelry that is a pure declaration of someone’s love for the person wearing it.
