    i didn;t read the op, but make sure it's big enough to slide over both your cock and the base of your nuts.

    I'm not the type to wear a lot of jewelry - a watch and two rings is pushing it for me - but I wear a wedding band on my left hand and I will occasionally wear a simple band on my right thumb. I've found that I get a few questions about the thumb, particularly because it's on the hand I use to shake hands, but people are generally complimentary. The people who are not complimentary tend to be guys who think it's funny to give me grief for it, and it tends to be from the same group that picks on me for dressing better than they do. The compliments tend to come from women and better-dressed men. I don't have to tell you which group is the one to which I pay attention.

    Given the above I think a solitary thumb ring is fine. However, I always take it off for events where there is any real level of formality.

    I enjoy wearing multiple gold rings like Sammy Davis Jr., or Renaissance popes.

    Good look.

    No no no...

    Well since you've decided I can't do it I'll abandon the practice immediately.

    Now you just have to convince the other 10 or so other posters in this thread who said a ring is fine, assuming it's done properly.

    Brits (and many other Europeans) of the very non-guido type typically wear signet rings on their pinkies.

    it really is a very cultural thing. I know a lot of europeans who wear this well. I actually know a few americans who pull it off well, too. but many can't

    The U.S. military says you can wear one ring, in good taste (sic), on each hand. I'd say that's probably a good standard to go by.

    I wear a turqoise/silver on my left index and a bloodstone/white gold signet on my right middle. That's where they fit.

    Just keep them off the pinky.

    True.
    Unless you are an Engineer.

    An iron ring wore by engineers on their dominant hand signifies their commitment to safety and acts as a reminder of an engineer's professional and moral obligation to the public. Each time the wearer writes, draws or signs their work, his/her ring brushes against the document and reminds them of engineering humility.

    I was in a meeting with a guy who wore a pinky ring on both hands, one was diamond and the other was some other jewel. It was surprising given his position and profession.

    While on the subject of ring etiquette, I've been wondering about the appropriateness of wearing a wedding band on the same finger of the right hand?

    Wedding band is worn on the right hand in Orthodox Christian and some other (Germany, Mexico) countries. Not sure about the "appropriateness" of it in your environment.

    Some people (including myself) wear both the wedding and the signet family ring on the same hand (pinky and wedding band finger).

    This style can be seen on Prince Michael of Kent and Nikita Mikhalkov (Russian movie director).

    US guys sometimes wear both the signet and wedding rings on the same finger - wedding one.

    In the UK one can find people wearing both a wedding and a signet ring on the pinky - like Prince Charles and Prince Edward.

    Also, some people take both hands' wedding fingers up - one with a family ring, the other one with a wedding band.

    But the thumb thing - that's a beach thing or wear big jeans and white keds ))) [​IMG]

    Thanks for the response Khnelben:
    I'm intrigued by the option adopted by the Windsors that you quote here;any pics?

    Also the second option of two rings on opposite fingers is appealing to me personally, and I might just give it a try.

    Never wear a ring unless she says it's OK. Even then, you probably don't want to start out with a ring. You need to get her ready. When the time is right, say something like "you want me to hit it with my c-ring, baby? Chicks dig it." Then get out the ring. Good luck.

    regarding the whole 'wearing a ring on the pinky' issue...i don't think it's a big deal and in fact can look very classy. canadian engineers, i'm told, wear an iron ring on their pinky so that it leaves a smudge and makes a noise when they lay their hand on their work table to rest. it reminds them of some tragedy that occurred way back where an iron bridge that wasn't engineered properly collapsed and killed a lot of people. so, i think, even if you're not a canadian engineer, if anyone ever questions you having a ring on your pinky, just tell a story like that and put them in their place.
