… Just not the ring you’re thinking of!
Yup. J-Law went out on the town wearing a really adorable turquoise and gold ring that looked like any other piece of fairly common fashion jewelry. But she wore it on her left ring finger! Therefore, the media went apeshit.
The general media speculation was “OMG! OMG! OMGGGGG!!!!1!1! Is she engaged?! Why else would she wear that? What an unconventional ring!” SLOW YOUR ROLL, PEOPLE!
First off, since when can you only wear a ring on your left hand ring finger if you’re engaged? We know there are probably some old school superstitions that keep some people from wearing a ring on that particular finger, but in the past, we’ve worn rings on whatever finger we damn well please! None of us were engaged at ten-years-old, but if our shiny new ring only fit that finger, SO BE IT. If I weren’t engaged, I’d continue with that trend, too!
We’re sure even starlets don’t want to get every freaking ring they own resized, so it goes on whatever finger it fits on. It’s not rocket science!
We get it. Really we do! Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult have dated for like.. TWO YEARS all together, which is practically an eternity by Hollywood standards. They’re old enough and wealthy enough to consider marriage without everyone thinking they’ve completely lost their minds. Speculation will happen.
While we’re all dreaming of an X-Men themed wedding in which Sir Ian McKellan officiates (because that would be the natural course of action for these two, we assume), there are some things you just don’t make assumptions about! Clearly, someone’s engagement is one of those things.
So wear whatever jewelry you want on whatever finger you want, Jen. If it were something bigger, we know your people have press releases for that.
Til Then.. LIVE YO LIFE!
