Wedding-Ring. The ring finger is the fourth one, or the finger next to the little one. In the ancient ritual of marriage, the ring was placed by the husband on the top of the thumb of the left hand while repeating the words - "In the name of the Father;" he then removed it to the fourth finger, saying, "and of the Son;" then to the middle finger, adding,"and of the Holy Ghost;" and, finally, placed it on the fourth finger, with the closing word, "Amen."
