For those of you unfamiliar with the mid-finger ring, this is a ring that is worn in the middle of the finger.
I know. It's a lot to wrap your head around...
I went out with a guy once who explained to me the meaning of wearing rings on different fingers (he also picked me up in a white van with tinted windows and a leopard print steering wheel cover, but let's not get bogged down in details).
He told me if you wear a ring on your index finger, it means you are a leader. If you wear a ring on your middle finger, it means you have a sense for what is right and what is wrong. Wearing a ring on your ring finger means
As it turns out, I was wearing a ring on every finger.
So... what does that say about me?
And what is the meaning of wearing rings mid-finger? I have no idea. But they look really cool.
Chunky mid-finger rings... mean you have large hands.
Mid-finger only rings... mean your fingers have gotten fat and your rings no longer fit.
Mid-finger rings worn on the middle finger: I think this means that you have a sense for what is right and wrong. But only half-way.
Yep, sounds about right!
Doubled up mid-finger rings... mean you don't have enough fingers.
Up-side-down mid-finger rings! Mean you want others to be able to appreciate your unparalleled style.
I just really like this nail polish...
And this nail polish...
Multiple rings on multiple fingers? I think this means you have too many rings. Maybe you should send some my way! I'd be happy to take some of those off your hands (ha) for ya!
Now, watch as I attempt to rock the ring mid-finger.

It is also important to note that, while the mid-finger ring is uber stylish, only one knuckle separates mid-finger rings from style-statement and sudden death in the form of loss. So, when evaluating which ring to rock out on a ledge (meaning, between your first and second kuckles), consider the price tag. Because they tend to be jumpers...
I've discovered that the key to mid-finger rings is to buy them very small. Like, very, very small (mine are size 3.5). And the best place to get rings this small is Etsy!! Here are a few designers you should check out:MXM Jewelry, SunParkNYC, Catbird, Michelle Chang
