On the contrary, rings on the right-hand talk about traits of your personality associated with order, meticulousness, and reason.

Depending on whether you are right-handed or left-handed, the meaning of the hand you wear the ring on will vary. If you are left-handed, your left hand is considered the one willing to give and act. If you are right-handed, it will be the other way around.
