  • description at the back of the frame
The twist comprises a seamless ring twisted to form two or more adjoining circles.

The ring itself is said to represent the joining together of two individuals for eternity. Though they may move away from one another on their own journeys, they always come together again sharing their lives and blending to become one. It signifies how the bonds of friendship, loyalty and love between a couple will last forever.

The double and triple twist have a similar meaning but refer more to the joining of two peoples or cultures rather than individuals.
