Engagement Ring Worn on Left Hand

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

I am planning to propose to my girlfriend and surprise her with a ring. I was going to put the engagement ring on the finger of her left hand, but my friend tells me that it should be put on the right hand. On which hand does it go?

Dear Don't want to look stupid,

An engagement ring is normally worn on the ring finger of the left hand. However, this can vary depending on the country. Most Western cultures wear the engagement on the left hand. The online encyclopedia, Wikipedia, points out that some countries such as Poland and the Ukraine wear the engagement rings on the right hand.
