Symbolism of the ring on fourth finger

Wearing your wedding ring on your fourth finger has always been accepted in Western culture without most people really knowing why!

From what we have learnt over the years, wearing a ring on your fourth finger on the left hand has a popular myth behind it; that there is a vein in that finger that runs directly to the heart. This vein is called the Vena Amoris. Unfortunately, this theory has been disproved by scientists but it’s so romantic, I can see why we choose to believe it anyway!
