Dramatic Sterling Silver ring with 1.2" rose motif. The Learning to Trust Ring features a rose in bloom. This design, by Paromita Rai, represents the beautiful transformation she has experienced in her life as she has learned to trust and love more freely and fully. Roses are an ancient symbol of love, compassion, and beauty in both Western and Indian culture. A bouquet of red roses, often used to show love, is used as a Valentine's Day gift in many countries. In Hinduism and Buddhism, the form of the rose evokes the cup of life or the center of Mandala, a configuration of geometric shapes, which symbolizes a meditational path to Nirvana. Made to match our Learning to Trust Bracelet (shown in photo), earrings and necklace.
