When you decorate it with a ring you unknowingly reveal determination and ambition. The middle finger indicates a sense of responsibility. Embellishing it with a ring reveals a desire for balance.

The ring finger has always been considered the finger of love on which to wear the engagement ring and faith. If you put a ring around it, it almost unequivocally means that your care is already taken.
