I had a burst vein in my finger and it got purple and had swelling.   It happens.  For me, it was when I was walking and my fingers swelled up (they do that somethings inexplicably) and I had my wedding ring on.  I have a friend who is an orthopedic surgeon and he told me it was this.  Ice it, rest your hand on a pillow above you when lounging on the couch, etc.  I got better very quickly and let's see if you do as well.  this article is about telling the difference between a bruise and a blood clot.  You sound to be describing a bruise.  REad through and see what you think.  https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/322829
