The Third Doctor adopted a pinky ring which he wore on his left hand, (TV: The Ambassadors of Death, et al) while the Twelfth Doctor wore a gold ring with a green gemstone on his left hand ring finger. (TV: Deep Breath, et al) It was a wedding ring from his marriage to River Song and the ring fell to the TARDIS floor when he regenerated within the TARDIS control room, because his successor's hands were smaller.
