About This Quiz

Engagement and wedding rings have a very long history. The ancient Romans believed that there was a nerve running from the ring finger to the heart, and that surrounding it magnified one's emotions. As a result of this, the Romans would sometimes wear wrist cuffs made of gold (which was believed to amplify love in this configuration), but rings use a lot less gold and are more comfortable to wear, so gold rings were also commonly used for this.

Rings have a history of occult meaning beyond merely our uses of them today. In mythology, rings can be fetishes; physical objects imbued with a spell that gives the wearer of the ring a magic power. Some rings brought luck or allowed the wearer to travel great distances, turn invisible or live forever. The connection between rings and the occult goes back all the way to the dawn of civilization.

Another occult idea that reaches back a very long time is the vampire. Vampires and vampirism exist in many forms, in many cultural traditions. Some vampires are little more than zombies rising from the grave each night, while other vampires are, as with Vlad Dracula, enchanted nobles intent on living forever, often past the purpose that led them to seek eternal life. We will connect these two traditions for you in this quiz. Design your ideal engagement ring, and we will tell you which sexy vampire is the one for you.
