How To Wear Men's Rings

There is no specific rule for which finger to wear a certain men's ring on. However, where your ring ends up should be governed by your taste. If you are just getting into men's jewellery, we recommend finding a ring that will fit on your pinky finger. This is because the pinky finger is essentially decorative, which means it won't get in the way when you're doing things with your hands. 

Alternatively, a thumb ring is a great way to make a statement. Why? Because your thumb is so big that it's going to need a big ring! You'll stand out wherever you are. However, they are less common. 

Ring fingers are normally reserved for that special wedding ring. They are usually your last port of call if the rest of your hand is full. We recommend waiting until that special someone comes along. 

Index fingers are historically reserved for more prominent rings. It has the space to make a statement, but you don't want to restrict the movement of your 'pointer' finger.  

Last, but not least, the middle finger is your largest finger so anything dainty is going to get lost. If you are game enough to wear a ring on your middle finger, we recommend something with a medium profile. But don't worry, we will take you through our top picks later on in this mans guide to wearing rings blog. 

If you would like to find out more about specific fingers, you can check out our quick guide to choosing which finger to wear a ring on.

How To Measure Ring Size Men

It's easy to measure your men's ring size at Shiels! You can come in-store and one of our expert staff members will measure your finger and point you in the right direction. Alternatively, you can purchase a ring multisizer. Working just like a belt, you can slip the multisizer onto your finger, adjust for a comfortable fit and read off the size indicated by the arrow.

Do Men Wear Engagement Rings?

Traditionally, most men only wear a wedding band. However, in recent times, engagement rings for men have increased in popularity. Some men like to wear an engagement ring as a symbol of their impending marriage. The syle of your engagement ring is entirely up to you. Typically, men often go for a ring that looks like a wedding band but has diamonds set into it.
