@Simba-Leigh:  HUrmm JustLove25 could answer this one but I think it depends on what matters most to you….do you rather see the heart facing you or would you rather having it face everyone else….?

…ummm, if it’s anything like wearing a horsehoe, you wear it with the top of the heart closest to your hand, that way the love won’t spill out?

@Nona99:  Hmm. Unless it’s like a claddagh ring in which you wear it facing towards your heart when you’re spoken for, or is that only when it’s on a certain hand? I have no idea… I’m not Irish in the least bit.

I have a heart-shaped ruby ring, a heart-shaped sapphire in my Claddagh ring, and a family ring that also has hearts in the frame.  I wear all of them with the pointy ends of the hearts pointing towards my palms because it’s the traditional way for a married woman to wear a Claddagh ring and I figure it’s just as well to wear them all the same way.  My heart rings:

@LiliKitty:  I’m Irish. πŸ™‚  You wear your Claddagh ring upside down (crown pointing towards your palm) on your right hand when you’re single, you wear the ring rightside up (crown pointing towards your fingertips) on your right hand when you have a boyfriend/girlfriend, you wear the ring updside down on your left hand when you’re engaged, and you wear it rightside up on your left hand when you’re married.  I’ll demonstrate it for you and that way, the OP can also see the difference in the way a heart looks rightside up or upside down on a finger. πŸ™‚  This is how I wore my Claddagh ring when I was engaged:

And this is how I wear it now that I’m married:

@MoonlightRose:  I just bought my SO a claddagh and he insists on wearing in pointed towards him on his left hand. I haven’t bothered to tell him that means he’s married, lol.

I don’t have one but if I did I’d probably face it towards me since I’m the one staring at it all the time πŸ™‚

@RedAngelDreamer:  lol You might want to tell him.  On the other hand, though, as long as other people get the message that he’s taken, it probably isn’t a big deal! πŸ™‚  Let other people think he’s married, it only works out in your favor. lol
