4. Wear the ring

You can wear the ring on any finger. Index finger, middle finger and ring finger usually are the best.

You can change the ring onto another finger or hand any time if needed.

It is worth noting that fingers react to changes in temperature. In cold temperature fingers tend to shrink and in warm temperature fingers tend to swell. At nighttime it is advisable to move the ring onto a finger where it is a bit loose.
