Nostalgia is a Greek compound word that consists of the composites 'nostos', that means return and 'algos' that means pain.It is the pain caused by the unsatisfied longing of going back to something.This inspired the designer to make a ring, which is a piece of jewellery with intense sentimental meaning, that shows union at its base, but does not meet ends, facing up.The twist ending looking at different directions symbolizes that the two people, although united, might or might not meet again.
