The hand kiss originated in Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth as a gesture expressing respect towards a woman and the Spanish courts of the 17th and 18th centuries, probably as a formal submission or pledge of allegiance of man to man.


Erin Coles

A kiss on the hand is a sign of respect and affection. It can be from a friend or someone who is interested but respects you too much to move in for a kiss on the lips.


Lisa Franco

Probably as a formal submission or pledge of allegiance of man to man. The man would show his submission by kissing the signet ring (a form of seal worn as a jewelry ring), the symbol of authority of the dominant person.
