I’ve seen the fleur-de-lis around a lot, and always thought it was a pretty design element. I’ve never really given much thought into what it WAS. Well, googling around I’ve found out that it is “fleur” is French for flower and “Lis” is French for Lily. So it’s a French Lily! Often this has been used as a symbol in coats of arms, flags and such. Something I think that’s interesting is that Wiki says, “In building and architecture, the fleur-de-lis is often placed on top of iron fence posts, as a pointed defense against intruders. It may ornament any tip, point or post with a decorative flourish, for instance, on finials, the arms of a cross, or the point of a gable.” In this way, wearing a Fleur-de-Lis ring is kind of like protection. Not that I think you should lunge your finger at anyone, but it’s got a point and it does convey a kind of ‘I can fend for myself’ type of mentality.It also has a ‘royal’ mentality that it projects. Plus, it’s so pretty!
