As it is mid-week (Wednesday, that is), I’ve decided to take this time to explore a subtle mid-trend seen on the likes of Courtney from The Bachelor (among others): the mid-finger ring.
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 you’re married you are creative. If you wear a ring on your thumb, it means that you are assertive, and sometimes forceful. Wearing a ring on your pinky finger means you either have strong communication skills, or are possibly a member of the mob.
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.
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…

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…
