Inspirational Quote Rings in Affordable Sterling Silver

by Mira

Valentine’s Day is a time when many people buy rings for their special one. Consider buying a quote ring if you believe in love, hope, and the power of faith.

Women in general like jewelry. Most of us also like inspirational, uplifting quotes. So combining the two makes sense. I’ve been browsing rings on Amazon and several quotes caught my eye. While many of these quotations are from the Bible, there is more to these rings than purity rings (“Love can wait”) or rings only for those of Christian faith. There are, in fact, messages that can be embraced by people of any faith, such as “Create in me a pure heart, O Lord,” or “When you have faith, anything is possible.” There are also messages that will appeal to people of no religious faith, such as “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams,” a statement I saw on a sterling silver cuff bracelet, for instance.

Amazon offers a nice range of quote rings, some in silver and some in stainless steel. I’m showing here only a selection of silver rings. You’ll be surprised to learn that some of them cost as much (as low, rather) than stainless steel rings. In fact, I saw one of them marked down from $74 to $20. And with Valentine’s Day coming up, Amazon offers 20% off select jewelry and watches, up to $200, when you pay with the Amazon Rewards Visa Card.

Create in me a pure heart, O Lord

This quote comes from Psalm 51. Here’s the whole passage, in Psalm 51:10-12, in the New International Version:

Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

Speaking of inspirational quotes, the Psalms are a wonderful section in the Bible.

This ring is marketed as a purity ring, but I think we can agree a pure heart is a broad concept that can mean different things to different people.

For I know the plans that I have for you

This is the beginning of a statement in the Bible (Jeremiah 29:11) that goes like this: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (The whole quote is on the ring.) We often choose a path in life and choose to believe that God supports us in our endeavors. What this quote says, however, is that God already has plans for us, which may or may not be the ones we chose ourselves. This passage invites us to keep an open mind that things may be in store for us of which we are not aware.

I know, if God already has plans for us, what about free will? Well, predestination and free will would probably take me a lifetime to sort out. For the moment, I take the view that God has a number of possible futures for all of us, and that at junctures in our lives we choose one path or the other – but they are all written in God’s book. It’s hard to imagine how that is, but that’s why they call it “a leap of faith” (into the unknown).

When you have faith, anything is possible

I recently watched a series of documentaries about people who underwent chemo to treat their cancer – until they took the matter into their own hands. They looked at alternative treatments, followed them to a tee, and beat cancer. Of course, part of it can be that chemo helped in the beginning as well, but the stories go to show that sometimes where there’s a will, there’s a way.

Now that can be your will, God’s will, or both.

This quote doesn’t have to be about religious faith. It can be faith in yourself. People are able to accomplish amazing things. What we all need is a little faith.

True Love Sterling Silver Ring Set

At the time of my writing this, these two “true love” rings in 925 silver go for only $10 on Amazon. If you’re looking for affordable love rings for the two of you for Valentine’s Day, and you and your partner are quite romantic, this set might be it.

People who bought these rings on Amazon are very happy with them. They say they look just as they do in the picture, and, like me, still wonder how come they are so cheap.

If you’re a parent or grandfather, and your daughter or granddaughter is in love, this can be a great way to surprise her for Valentine’s Day or any other day (her birthday, perhaps?).

Love Ring

If you want to declare your love to your partner with a ring this Valentine’s, you may decide that a simple, thin silver ring with “LOVE” engraved on it is the way to do it.

You may also choose to express your love for God with such a ring (for “God is love”), or love for the miracle that life is. “Love,” in the imperative, is a good mantra to live by. If all of us would turn more often to the love planted deep in our hearts, the world would be a better place.

Depending on your religious faith or philosophy, and personal background or inclination, “love” will, first and foremost, mean different things to you. If you’re a teenager, it might mean passion. If you’re a Buddhist or drawn to the Buddhist philosophy, it will most likely mean compassion.

Hope and Faith Rings

If your partner is facing serious illness or going through a dark time in his or her life, a Hope or Faith ring will be a nice way to express your support, to show that you’re there for them but that they, too, have to be strong and believe they will pull through.

Be the change that you wish to see in the world

To end on a positive note, there’s a quote and ring out there for those of you out there who step boldly into their teenage and adult lives thinking they can change the world in a big or small way. In fact, we all can change the world for the better if we adopt this mindset, whether it is by being nice to one person at a time, helping people in need emotionally, financially, or with the labor of our body, or by being enviromentally conscious in big or small ways. Or, perhaps, with our prayers.

"The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life." -- attributed to Robert Louis Stevenson
