@squishee:  Unless I know the person and know they they are not engaged I always assume any left hand ring finger ring is an engagement ring. I have never worn any ring on my left hand ring finger unless it was a wedding/e-ring.

I always wear rings on my left hand because it feels awkward to me on the right hand- I wear my watch and bracelets on the left hand as well. So no, I would not assume but I have had more than a few people ask if I’m engaged, which I am not (although I like to pretend that it’s my “waiting ring” hehe).

To be honest, I just assumed that if people wore a ring on that finger it was meant as an “I’m in a serious and committed relationship”.  As for a traditional eing vs non traditional, I’ve always wanted either an art deco or sapphire ring. I’m currently rocking a wedding band as an ering.

I tend to try to size up the ring lol If it’s diamond I definitely assume it’s an e-ring. If it’s a gemstone with a halo of diamonds or some diamonds around in general, I also assume e-ring. If it’s REALLY big and has kind of a lot going on or looks costume-y, I don’t really assume but may occasionally comment on it and see if the person kind of smiles a certain way when they say “thanks” lol

@squishee:  Left ring finger means engaged or married. If the ring is more band-like I might assume married instead, but it’s one of them.
