Do you wear finger ring? Do you give finger ring on engagements?

Do you wear finger ring? If so what type are you wearing now, whether plain gold, or studded with precious stones? Emerald suits me well, so I usually wear single emerald green studded ring. While going out I wear Navaratna studded ring, i.e. nine types of precious stones like diamond, emerald, ruby etc. which is considered to be taking out all the bad effects and afflictions from us and believe me, the work for which I am going, will be carried out successfully. In our custom, we do not give engagement ring, but now-a-days it has become fashion and I too gave to my son-in-law and daughter-in-law. Do you have that custom of giving ring at the time of engagement? Did you get it? Apart from finger ring, at the time of marriage Indian ladies have to wear toe ring in silver. Do you have this sort of custom in your place?

Hello Buchi-bulla. When I was young, I used to wear a finger ring for fun because it was a fashion back then. My mother gave my wife an engagement ring, a gold one. I did not have one because it was required for the husband to have one. It is decades that I have not worn a ring any longer though still some men wear it. I don't like to wear a ring now.

hi, I am little confused about the ring, what's the different between "finger ring" and "finger ring on engagements"? these finger ring are ring? Does finger ring only mean a normal ring that is used for decorating yourself without any other meanings, or...

There are two types of rings that can be worn. One is hand palm's finger ring and the other is leg feet's finger ring which is also called toe ring, the picture of which is given in my discussion. In India, ladies wear toe ring on the day of marriage and it continues. But the hand finger ring is worn by everybody at any time and in any country. Am I clear to you?

Married women should mandatorily wear toe ring in our custom.I need to follow this because of my inlaws though I don't like to wear it daily. It would be good if it is worn on special occassions and with saree. But when I was carrying, my legs and toes were swollen and I was allowed to remove the toe rings till the birth of my child.How about you? Do you like to wear them daily?
