As the popular song goes. And I don’t mean the chewed up Love Actually version. I'm talking about Martie Pellow with long hair. Oops think I might have aged myself a bit there. This week I’m talking all about fingers and why it’s good to adorn them with lots of gorgeous crystal rings. Whether it’s a real statement piece or something more demure, wearing crystal rings show that you are not only welcoming the healing power of crystals into your life but making it something you can focus on throughout the day. But which hand should I wear it on and what crystal goes where I hear you ask. Read on to find out more.
Left or Right?
Generally, your dominant hand is your giving hand, and your non-dominant is your receiving hand, so bear that in mind when thinking which hand to place your rings on. However, as with anything, go with what feels right for you. Read the advice on the fingers and the crystals that correspond with them below.
Why different crystals for different fingers?
Wearing crystal rings is not just a fashion statement but also a way to incorporate the healing power of crystals into your daily life. Each finger is connected to a specific chakra, and wearing a crystal ring on that finger can enhance the energy of that chakra.
The thumb is connected to the root and sacral chakras, which are related to our physical self. Wearing a big bold ring with jasper or agate can help ground us and connect us with our inner strength. Historically, wearing a thumb ring indicated wealth.
The Index Finger
The index finger represents our direction in life and is connected to the third eye and crown chakras. Amethyst, clear quartz, and lapis lazuli are all great choices for this finger as they can enhance our intuition and clarity of thought. Amethyst is a popular stone for spiritual growth and intuition. Wearing an amethyst ring on your index finger can help you tap into your inner wisdom and connect with your intuition.
The middle finger is associated with communication and is connected to the throat chakra. Yes, that’s why sometimes a rude gesture just feels so good! Wearing a ring with aquamarine, sodalite, or turquoise on this finger can help us communicate our truth with clarity and ease. Wearing a sodalite ring on your middle finger can help you speak your truth with more confidence and clarity.
The Ring Finger
The ring finger is connected to the heart chakra, which represents love and compassion. Green stones such as malachite and green aventurine can enhance our capacity for love and empathy, while rose quartz can help you cultivate more love and compassion in your life, both for yourself and for others.
Finally, the pinky finger is often seen as a fun-loving finger, but it can also balance out other rings on your hand. It's a great spot for a small and delicate ring with a crystal that resonates with you.
Benefits of Fiddling and Fidgeting
If you're a fiddler who likes to constantly twirl your rings, don't worry, it can be good for you! Hands can be mapped for reflexology, so playing with your rings can give you a quick boost of healing. You can even find rings that have coiled or spiky interiors for a full-on massage.
In addition to the healing properties of the crystals, there is also some fun historical significance to certain finger and ring combinations. For example, wearing a pinky ring used to indicate that a man was married and denoted power and status. It was also common for engineers and other professionals to wear a pinky ring as a symbol of their success.
The Question on Everyone’s Mind
If you want to attract abundance, citrine is a great crystal to work with. You can wear a citrine ring on your middle finger, which is connected to the money line in palmistry. Alternatively, you can wear it on your pinky finger to complement and balance out other rings you're wearing.
Wearing crystal rings is a beautiful and meaningful way to incorporate the healing power of crystals into your daily life. Whether you choose to wear a bold statement ring or a delicate piece, each crystal and finger combination can enhance the energy of that chakra and bring positivity and balance into your life.
