Engagement Ring on Which Finger?

(Montreal, Canada)


Ni Hao: I am wondering, do Chinese women wear the engagement ring on the right hand? Do they wear it on the fourth finger, next to the baby finger? Question from Paul in Montreal, Canada.


Victoria's Answer:

Hi Paul,
 
Thanks for your question.

We Chinese women usually wear the engagement ring on the third finger of the left hand.

Having said that, there are some Chinese women who wear the engagement ring on the fourth finger of the right hand.

Best regards,


Victoria

I just asked my chinese friend about the ring finger and she told me that it was the same as Americans o0r Europeans do. She also told me that putting the ring on the middle finger means that you are single and available.
Right now I am not sure who is right!
