Which ring(s) go on which finger?

I've always wondered about this because sometimes I see wedding rings above or below the engagement ring and sometimes on the other hand.

Anyone know what other rings go on the other fingers?
I heard the pinky is where promise rings go but I'm not sure about that. Also heard something about class rings on the middle finger or something similar..

  • Wedding rings go first then engagement ring. Your wedding ring is supposed to be on left hand because "it is closest to your heart" If someone is wearing their wedding ring(s) on the right hand it usually means they are widowed. I am not sure about the promise rings and the class rings

  • wedding band first, then engagment ring. they are a matched set so they look good. NO clue about promise rings or class rings. I asumed a promise ring went on the ring finger, and a class ring went wherever you wanted it.

  • I always saw guys wearing class rings on their ring fingers, but the girls they gave them to wore them on the first finger. :) As for wedding rings, I'd say wedding with engagement on top. That's how they get soldered together if you get that done. I don't know about promise rings.

  • Often a widow or widower will move their wedding ring(s) to their ring finger on their other hand. This way, they're still honoring / remembering their lost spouse and the marriage they had, but aren't sending the signal that they're married / unavailable.

  • from my understanding class rings go on your first finger promise rings go one the finger next to the pinky on the right hand, wedding and engagement rings go on the same finger but on the left hand.

  • We bought our son's class ring this year. The jeweler's / company that sold them sent a representative out to the school to size anyone who wanted one. He sized their ring finger - their choice left or right hand.
