The union of two lives brought together by love has throughout history been symbolised by the emblem of conjoined hands. In the lore of the lapidary, the colour blue is associated with devotion, whilst diamonds are emblematic of eternal love, for they are forever pure and unbreakable. The diamond ring represented on the finger of one of the hands suggests a betrothal. The ring as a shape is also significant as, like true love, it is unbroken and eternally renewing.
