    This question goes to all of you who like wearing rings (finger rings I mean ) I'm always been a bracelets/rings lover but since coming out I now enjoy my liberty to wear what I want more freely and being using since a thumb ring. I am a little "out of style" and would like some advice for club wearing (that would be on a separate question) but for nightclubs outfits, how many rings do you use/what styles and in which rings? Thank you!

    I rarely wear a ring. I don't like them when playing the piano (Liberace notwithstanding), and I'm too tough on them in other situations.

    But when I do wear my single wedding band for social occasions it's on the fourth finger of the left hand, per US custom. My husband does the same.

    I don't wear rings, but if and when I get married, I hope to wear the band on my left hand, fourth ("ring") finger, per U.S. custom as Art_Deco rightly stated.

    I believe the wedding finger varies in some countries.

    But here's a story I love to tell here, so RJ veterans can skip this now.

    When my late partner & I were on a relocation trip in 2002, we wore matching "wedding" bands on our left hands. Just cheap costume jewelry, each having 6 embedded rainbow stones. We couldn't be legally married in any State we lived, the rings were just symbols to us.

    So we were staying overnight in Council Bluffs, Iowa, right on the border with Omaha, Nebraska (which has a fantastic gay club). We were checking in at the desk, and the clerk pulled up our reservation for a handicapped room from her file. Speaking to my partner, she said:

    "Here it is... you're the non-smoking handicapped queen."

    I positively choked, and ran from the desk and around the corner, down a service hall that had the vending machines. I left my poor partner alone.

    When I had composed myself I returned, just as the clerk noticed his rainbow ring.

    "What a lovely birthstone ring! You have 6 children, and all born on different months!"

    I ran away again, total coward, leaving him there, doubling over in laughter. When I returned a second time the clerk noticed my own ring, and happily exclaimed:

    "And you have 6 children, too!" I completely lost it, and this time ran out the front entrance to where our car was parked, calling over my shoulder I was getting our luggage.

    Here are 2 men, sharing a handicapped room with only 1 queen-sized bed in it. Our last names aren't the same, we ain't brothers. We have identical matching rings on the fourth finger of our left hands. And this naive women thinks we're married to women and each have at least 6 children, all born on the very same months.

    We laughed about it all night, and it was one of our favorite stories for years.
