Ring Rings

This may represents your relationship with the person who gave it to you, or the feelings that drove you to buy it. Or perhaps the reason it was given. Thus it can symbolise marriage, engagement, or can represent wholeness if it is not one which has been given you. The feelings we associate with the ring. See: Circle.
