The Symbolical Ring

When I was in highschool, my sister gave me a sterling silver ring as a reward for doing well in school. I considered it as one of the greatest gift of all time because it reminded me of my sacrifices and hardwork. Thus I perceived this as my highschool ring.

For everyone, ring is just a piece of jewelry that you can showcase in public as a sign of luxury. However, if you notice, there is a significant meaning behind it as it symbolizes more than just piece of metal. Let’s say if someone proposes a marriage to his or her partner, then that ring becomes an engagement ring, which will signify their promises of love wherein they just need to wait for the very special moment of their union.

On this special day, another set of rings are being exchanged with the couple. A glamorous set of wedding rings which is somehow similar to the Reeds for wedding ring sets that symbolizes their unity in life, is yet another momentous thing that they could ever receive.

As the saying goes, marriage is not like swallowing a spoonful of steamed rice that when your mouth is burned, you could unswallow it! So better yet know the person you would want to marry to avoid regrets. (AAP)
