What is the meaning of the symbols on the traditional Latvian engagement ring?
according to a site that sells the traditional latvian ring this ring was created for a girl who had seven suitors and couldn't decide which one to marry so she asked the black smith to create a ring with seven symbols one for each suitor and then she would marry the suitor whose symbol fell off the ring first. But according to my grandmother and other Estonian jewelers, the seven tags on the rings signify things such as ur health, ur luck, ur wealth, ur fidelity, and other things that are associated with marriage. I don't know if u know the story behind the ring but a girl is given this ring a week before the wedding and every day she plucks off one of the symbol tags and on the seventh day it becomes her wedding band. If or when the husband went to war they cut the ring in half adn the woman wore half and her husband wore the other half. i hope that answers ur question about the symbols on the rings
