The various meanings that are given to emojis can generate misunderstandings on WhatsApp, hence the importance of knowing their definition, or at least the purpose for which they were designed. In this case we will see the ring.
The massification and popularity acquired by emoticons has generated a new way of communicating moods, feelings, reactions and even complete sentences. The risk is in the process of interpretation.
This emoticon is a ring with a gem of some kind on top, most likely a diamond. This gem is often associated with a proposal and a subsequent engagement to get married. Ring was approved as part of unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
If you think that this emoji is something insignificant, you are wrong. If at any time you plan to send it to a woman, it is better to think twice, because it could be interpreted as that you want to marry that person or have a serious relationship. It should not be confused with a simple gift at any graduation or birthday.
