What Does Wearing A Thumb Ring Mean?
There is not a universally accepted or understood meaning to wearing a ring on the thumb. Spiritualists, however, assign each finger a name and a significance, and a thumb ring could indirectly relate to such beliefs.
According to spiritualists, the thumb is the only finger that is not named for a member of the Greek pantheon. The thumb, however, is the central connection of the hand to the brain and controls its movement. Spiritualists also believe the thumb is a direct link to human-will. Therefore, wearing a ring on the thumb could be symbolic of an individual’s personal will, willpower or determination. A thumb ring may also be worn as a symbol of wisdom.
Thumb rings also signify freedom and independence. It is common for a woman to don a thumb ring on the right hand following a divorce or separation from their significant other.
A thicker ring band may be worn to signify a stronger declaration of independence. Alternatively, if a woman wears a thumb ring on the left hand, this often signifies that she is in a serious relationship.
Such beliefs existed in ancient times. You can wear any kind of rings you want for your thumb without any meaning or purpose. Using rings on different fingers than a ring finger is a reflection of not being ordinary. If you insist on a meaning, that’s the only valid meaning in 2018.
