Wedding rings for men-Romanian?-#romania

Someone asked me ,when he saw my wedding ring, if I was from Romania.
I said no . Was a man wearing a wedding originally a Romanian custom?

Yoni, over the years, I have noticed that in different Countries the Wedding Ring is on different hands and fingers.  In England Wales and Scotland most Men and Women use the second shortest finger of their left hand, but some use the same finger of their right hand.  Others hang it on gold chain round their neck (this might depend on Health and Safety at work).
