To ask her out or not?

might seem stupid, but what the hell a simple ring on the fourth finger on right hand does mean?!

I have been lucky(?) to manage to meet a local lady while my German language is like her Japanese language. She all pleasant and nice, and been seeing here for various things (Work related, activities etc) and I had a feeling that shes interested, so today I decided to man up and ask her on a date, however, we met today and there was this ring on her right hand and she was making all these moves in attempt to flash it to me on many occasions. Prior to that, I dropped couple of hints that Im going to approach someone I like and she was all encouraging (that was over texts), 2 days later we met and I saw that ring for first time! (been meeting the lady for over a month and never seen here wearing a ring, hence I thought she wanted to hint to me that shes attached or so, thus save myself the embarrassment).

As much as how disheartening today's meeting was, as much as Im interested to understand what the hell does a ring on right hand means here in Switzerland. Any local ladies or guys or anyone had similar experience? please share!

In USA (and pretty much around the globe), that ring usually means she attached, or promised or just not looking.. but considering the swiss using the right hand for marriage, I thought it might be the opposite? (i know, im smart arse sometimes!)
