Which Finger Should You Get Your Ring Sized For?

Congratulations, you just won the championship and can't wait to get sized for your new championship ring! The only problem is you don't have a clue which finger you should get your ring on. You may not have known this, but a ring worn on any finger has some form of symbolic meaning behind it.

The Thumb

This is that big finger on your hand that stands apart from the others. A ring on the left thumb is a sign of wealth and power. It also can be considered as a fashion statement. The same goes for a ring on the right thumb. People are more likely to view you as a fashionable, confident, and successful when they see a ring on your thumb.

The Index Finger

This is the finger next to the thumb often used for pointing. The index finger is mainly portrayed as the Jupiter. This finger mostly focuses on leadership, self-confidence, ambition and sometimes religious aspects of life. A ring is definitely noticeable and any form of commerative ring would look great on this finger.The left index finger does not hold any symbolism as of yet but is still often used for rings.

The Middle Finger

This is the finger next to the index finger after the thumb and is named after the Greek god Saturn. It thus follows that it is associated with the sense of right and wrong, balance, secretiveness, search for truth and responsibility. A ring on the either middle finger has been used as a symbolism of power and accountability. With it having a dominant placement, it is great for your new ring.

The Fourth/Ring Finger

It is named Apollo. The meaning of a ring on this finger is commonly known to symbolize marriage.
The left ring finger is reserved in many cultures, for wedding and engagement rings, as it was believed in ancient Roman culture that the left ring finger is connected to the heart by a vein running directly between them. While the right ring finger in known for is visibility, which makes it an excellent candidate for a ring you are looking to show off. 

The Little Finger (Pinky)

Your pinky is basically that small finger on your hand and is named Mercury, which is an energy of communication. It is also commonly used as a symbolism for intelligence and persuasion.
It is often the first choice for a statement ring. A finger to wear what you want people to pay most attention to. Rings on either pinky shows signs of character and make strong statements. Because of this people often get rings for this finger.

All rings tell a story, and the finger they are placed on says a lot as well. I hope this article helps you decide which finger you'd like to get your new ring on. When you finally get your new ring, check out CC Sports  for the latest display case options.

3 Tips to Keep Your Championship Ring Like New

A championship ring is more than just a piece of jewelry, but the perfect way to symbolize victory and crown a high achievement. You will surely want to wear your ring when you first get it, but how do you make sure that it stays damage free and protected? These simple tips will help you preserve your championship ring for years to come!

Keep it clean:

During the honeymoon time with your new ring, you are likely to want to wear it everywhere. While you may just be going to class, work, or out eat, your hands encounter a lot of activities that can cause signs of wear.

Using lotions, oils, gels, and soaps while wearing your ring can also tarnish it. These pollutants can dull your rings shine and leave dirt and grime attached to the stones and ring itself. 

The best way to prevent your ring from collecting unnecessary scratches and getting covered with filth is to remove it from your hand whenever you may encounter physical activities or applying any oily liquids to your hands. 

Clean it:

Even being careful, as you wear your championship ring, it will eventually become dirty. But a dirty ring does not have to stay that way. I recommend monthly in between wears to clean your ring. There are dozens of products on the market that you can use, but here is a simple home tip that works great:

Warm to hot water + dish detergent = Clean Ring

Simply by letting your ring soak in warm soapy water for 20 minutes and scrubbing it with a toothbrush is an excellent way to keep you ring looking good as new. 

Protect it:

Display Sports and Class Rings
When you're not wearing your ring, where does it go? In a jewelry box, in a drawer, on your dresser? Putting your ring in a championship ring display case is a great way to keep it clean and protected. It prevents your ring from obtaining scratches from other items found in a jewelry box or drawer and keeps your ring dust free. 

In closing, you worked hard for that ring and taking care of it properly will ensure that it still look great for years to come! For a variety of display cases and engraving please check out

The Secret To Being A Champion

Schools back in session and that means it's time for fall sports to start!

Rather you are trying out for a new team or already on the team; typically the ultimate goal is to win a championship. If you waited until the first day of practice to prepare yourself for the season, then you are already behind your competition!

The Secret:

What successful teams at all levels have figured out is that to be the best in your sport you have to get a jump on the competition. This doesn't mean overtraining six months out from the season, but what it does mean is staying active and in shape when out of season. It also means working on your skills or weakness that you may have struggled with the year before. 

The Reward:

My old college coach use to tell me that "championships aren't won in the offseason, but they can certainly be lost." While staying active and training properly in the offseason won't guarantee a win, it will guarantee that you will be better prepared when the season comes around. All the extra time and effort that you put into your craft is sure to be worth it when you finally win that championship ring or medal!
