A bride's engagement ring and wedding ring are traditionally worn on the third
finger of the left hand.
Although there is no precise evidence to explain the
origin of this tradition, there are two strongly held beliefs.
The first, dating
back to the 17th century, is that during a Christian wedding the priest arrived
at the forth finger (counting the thumb) after touching the three fingers on the
left hand '
...in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost'.
belief refers to an Egyptian belief that the ring finger follows the vena amoris,
that is, the vein of love that runs directly to the heart.
