The choice for which ginger to choose for wearing the engagement ring depends mainly on the country. In many Western traditions, with the exception of Germany, Spain and Greece, the engagement ring is usually wore on the fourth left finger, as this seems to be directly connected to the vein leading to the heart.

In other cultures, most notably Russia and India, such piece of jewellery is usually put on the right hand instead. Wherever you are, remember to not take off your engagement ring before the wedding, to avoid bad luck.
