Traditionally wedding rings are worn on the left ring finger because it was believed that the vein in that finger travels straight to the heart? Nowadays, the tradition still exists even though modern medical technology has proven the belief wrong. Another tradition is, after the ceremony, women transfer their engagement ring from the left hand to their right so they can wear the wedding ring on the left finger.

The reason after put the ring on the third finger which believed had a vein, artery or nerve running directly to the heart.
