Elevate your Energy with Crystal Rings

I’m often asked, “What finger should I wear this ring on?” and like everything, it’s completely a personal preference.

If you’re anything like me and switch up your jewellery based on your mood, you’ll probably be instinctively wearing crystal rings on fingers that naturally feel right for you. My ring placement has always been very intuitive, but recently I discovered that you could access your chakras through your hands. The more I researched this, the more this made complete sense to me, so I thought I’d share my findings with you!

Our bodies are all interconnected, so even though there are strong energy centres at certain points of your body, it doesn’t mean the only way you can access it is through placing a crystal directly here. Just take reflexology for example – that works wonders because you can access the rest of your body through your feet, and it’s just the same for our hands!

When we put a crystal or gemstone ring on any finger, we are effectively filtering the energy that flows through that finger. Therefore, we can figure out what energy we want to tap into, attune or amplify through their associations with the astrological planets, the elements of Ayurveda and of course the chakras.

For anyone who’s unfamiliar with their chakras or needs a little refresh, there are 7 chakras: Crown, Third Eye, Throat, Heart, Solar Plexus, Sacral and Root. For more details on each energy centre, head to my Chakra Guide and find out where your blockages might be in my Energy Balancing Guide.

Which hand should I wear my ring on?

Left hand:

In the realm of energy and symbolism, your left hand possesses the qualities of receptiveness, Ying and feminine energy. It is intricately connected to your subconscious mind, serving as a gateway to accessing suppressed desires, instincts, and even deep-seated prejudices. By wearing crystals on your left hand, you can manifest and promote specific qualities and energies within your inner world.

Right hand:

Your right hand is symbolic of giving, active, Yang and masculine energy. It serves as a conduit for your conscious mind and logical awareness. By adorning your right hand with specific gemstones, you can elevate your conscious energy, amplify the impact you have on the outside world and enhance your physical actions.



Element: Fire

Planet: Venus

Chakra: Solar Plexus

Crystals: Citrine, Sunstone, Peridot

The thumb, a representative of the entire hand, holds a profound connection to your subconscious personality and innate willpower. Often associated with the earthly realm, the thumb plays a pivotal role in manifesting your physical reality. By adorning this digit with gemstones, you can enhance your ability to create and shape your external world. Additionally, the thumb is intricately linked to self-expression and igniting your creative spark.

The left thumb, deeply intertwined with intuition, serves as a conduit to your inner knowing. On the other hand, the right thumb forms a strong connection with the communication of your thoughts and ideas, allowing you to articulate your mind's wisdom.


Element: Air

Planet: Jupiter

Chakra: Heart

Crystals: Blue Topaz, Morganite, Ametrine

Let the index finger point you in the right direction on your journey towards fulfilment, success and filled with love. This finger holds a deep connection to our heart chakra, the centre of love, empathy, and genuine connection. Choose a crystal that will serve as a powerful reminder of your purpose and elevate your vibrations to align with the frequency of love.

Rings worn on the right index finger symbolise ambition, leadership, decisiveness, and authority. 

On the other hand, wearing your ring on the left index finger emphasizes your love and passion, channelling this energy inward towards your inner world.


Element: Ether

Planet: Saturn

Chakra: Throat

Crystals: Clear Quartz, Aquamarine, Blue Sapphire

The middle finger represents our role in life, the things central to us and our personal world. It encompasses our sense of responsibility and everything we are accountable for. Situated front and centre, the middle finger is all about personal power and how we present ourselves to the world. If you wish to break free from introversion, channel crystal healing energy through rings worn on the middle finger.

Clear quartz rings possess the remarkable ability to work with all of your body's chakras and amplify the energy of other crystal rings you may wear. By increasing your level of inspiration, creativity, and communication skills, clear quartz empowers you to radiate positivity and express your true self.


Element: Earth

Planet: Sun

Chakra: Root

Crystals: Amethyst, Smokey Quartz, Black Sapphire

Rooted in tradition, the left ring finger has long been reserved for promise rings, engagement rings, and wedding rings. This is due to the heart meridian leading directly to the ring finger and signifying its role in matters of love.

However, it is also connected to our root chakra, representing our ability to feel firmly grounded in life. When the energy flows harmoniously through this chakra, we feel grounded in ourselves and in the world around us.

Drawing from the Sun's active energy of leadership and creativity, the ring finger becomes a symbol of intelligence, fame, and how we present ourselves to the world. It's the stage upon which our unique brilliance shines, captivating those around us



Element: Water

Planet: Mercury

Chakra: Sacral

Crystals: Emerald, Garnet, Diamond

The little finger, facing outward, serves as a conduit to the world and reflects our interactions with others. It embodies our social life and reveals our attitude towards the people around us. This finger carries the energetic essence of trade, communication, writing, public speaking, and craftsmanship.

Adorned with a ring on the right little finger to cultivate clear and effective communication skills, paving the way for harmonious connections and strengthening relationships.

On the other hand, wear a ring on the left little finger, to boost self-confidence, internal communication, and harmony within oneself.
