Ring on the left, but I know it’s not the same way in Germany, for example. Mr. Scissors parents were confused, I think. :p

I don’t have an e-ring (didn’t want one, let me tell you the shocked looks I get everytime I say that!) but will wear the band on my left. That being said my folks are both Latin American (Mexican and Colombian) and my mom says that it’s traditionally on the right hand in their countries. She says they finally switched to left hand so she wouldn’t get hit on (she was 21 and wayyyy hot when she got married).. Wow. Just realized I made my mom sound really vain. She isn’t.. promise!

Long story short – Left, but when I go visit family out of the country will move it to my right hand. 🙂

i think for the french it’s customary to wear your wedding ring/band on the right hand? I saw it in a movie…

My ring is in the box… I never wear it when I’m at home. But it goes on the left in the USA. Alot of other countries wear it on the right.

FMM :  My fiancé is Lebanese, and he goes by the older traditions where there is only one ring (having a separate e-ring and wedding ring is relatively new in Lebanese culture… since about the mid-70s, emulating the West). So apparently the single ring is first worn on the right hand before the wedding and switches to the left hand during the wedding ceremony.

Technically the reason it is worn in North America on the left hand is because the heart is on the left side of the body.
