Reason Why Wedding Rings Are Circular In Shape And Worn on the 4th Finger of the Left Hand

A wedding ring is a finger ring that indicates that its wearer is married. It is usually forged from metal, and traditionally is forged of gold or another precious metal.

Have you ever asked yourself why wedding ring is always round?

I am going to share with you why it is always round and why it is always worn on the forth finger on the fest hand.

The reason why wedding rings are known to be circular in shape is because a circle has no beginning and no end; hence why marriages are meant to last forever.

Thousand of years ago, there was a Greek and Roman belief that a vein from the fourth finger on the left hand ran directly to the heart.

This vein was known as the ‘vena amoris’ also known as the vein of love. This belief led to the tradition of wearing the wedding ring on that particular finger, symbolizing the love amongst the couple being married.

According to scientific evidence, this myth is not true, however many individuals still like to believe it is.
