To say I'm yours in other language.

Sometimes we want something special, something different, something unique.

This is a different ring. It's written in Latin. Latin is a very old language used in ancient Rome. Latin is a classic language belonging to the Italic branch of the Indo-European languages. The Latin alphabet is derived from the Etruscan and Greek alphabets, and ultimately from the Phoenician alphabet. Even though no one speaks Latin as a first language anymore, many people study it in school. It is still useful because it shows how society worked in past times. It can also help understand how languages work. Knowing Latin makes it easier to learn the Romance languages.

 "Ego dilecto meo et dilectus meus mihi.  The translation of the phrase is "I belong to my beloved and my beloved to me". It is from the Song of Solomon, (chapter 6 verse 3), a declaration of mutual love and affection from some of the most passionate verses in the Bible. 

 The Song of Songs can be read on many levels. On the surface, it is about romantic love, but it can also be read as an allegory about the relation of the finite to the infinite making it even more complex. Traditionally though, the verse has been given as a token of love when engraved on jewelry.

 If you have another special sentence, I would appreciate if you leave them in the comment, it will be nice.
