It was tradition in my family, to pass down a band ring to all the feminine in the family.
My granny passed hers down to me.
It was silver, yet it looked like a wedding ring.
I had to wear it on my left ring finger, until I received a ring from a possible bf.
But, in many cases, I was happy to have it on, because if a guy approached me that I did not want to deal with, I showed him that ring, and in a few instances, he would leave me the hell alone!

I once knew this lady who did juat that. She informed me that she was not interested in a relationship and the ring shooed away those guys who did leaving her free to have superficial one night stand/FWB situations which was all she wanted

It keeps men away generally and when they are around someone they would like to know they can just switch the ring to the other hand.
