Chinese Astrology

According to Chinese Astrology, every finger of your hand represents a particular part of your life. The thumb presents your parents, the index finger represents siblings, the little finger symbolizes children, the middle finger indicates about yourself and the ring finger denotes your life partner. Thus, when one chooses a partner, it is only auspicious that they will wear the ring for a love bond in the ring finger.

Alexandria theory

A Greco Roman historian Alexandria lived in the second century. He wrote that Egyptians believed that there was a nerve that ran from that finger to the heart. This idea was revived by Levinus Lemnius who was a popular 16th-century Dutch physician. He wrote that rubbing the golden ring on the finger affects the heart in women and it refreshes the fountain of life.

In that era, the Romans believed that the vein in the ring finger (the third finger) of the left hand ran directly to the heart. Because of this faith, they called that vein the "Vena Amoris" or vein of love. Naturally, to strengthen a union based on love, they'd place the ring on that finger that housed the vein of love to signify the romance the newly married couple shares.
