The rise of the engagement ring hand selfie

We’re all familiar with the rise of the selfie. The social media phenomenon is so pervasive that “selfie” was named the Oxford Dictionary’s word of the year in 2013.

Off the back of this trend we’re now starting to see the emergence of the “hand selfie”, where newly-engaged women snap the bling on their left hand.

A woman in the US made headlines earlier this month when it was reported she underwent hand rejuvenation surgery in other to ensure a flawless hand selfie upon becoming engaged.

Perhaps we can blame celebs for championing this trend, as it’s clear they’re firm fans of the hand selfie, as you can see from our compilation below.
