A ring is circle. It has no beginning and no end. It seems small and insignificant on one hand, yet holds so much meaning on the other. Throughout history, rings have meant a bond to something or someone: whether it be a signet ring, a clan ring or a wedding ring. A ring ties us to something or someone.  The hole in the center of the ring also has significance. It isn’t just considered a space, but rather a gateway, or door; leading to things and events both known and unknown. To give a woman a ring signifies never-ending and immortal love.  According to  a tradition believed to have been derived from the Romans, the wedding ring is worn on the left hand ring finger because there was thought to be a vein in the finger, referred to as the ‘Vena Amoris’ or the ‘Vein of Love’ said to be directly connected to the heart.
