View Full Version : Rinoa's ring?

(Just to go nicely with the Squall and Seifer jewelry threads here...)

I've taken a look at some official art pictures of Rinoa, and I see that she wears a ring on a chain around her neck. The question is, is the ring in the game just a plain ring? Or are there engravings and designs on it and such? I think I've seen it sold in eBay but it said that Rinoa had 3 rings or something weird like that, and I don't remember the other 2 rings. In fact, I don't even remember the first ring... my memory's a little fuzzy, and I haven't played FF8 in two years. What was the significance of Rinoa's ring, again?

If someone can explain it a bit to me, I'd appreciate it.

Oh, and for those of you who are wondering, the answer is yes.

I believe there are two. She has one ring on a chain when she is introduced (I have no idea whether this is ever explained anywhere as it's been a while since I played), and then she adds Squall's lionheart ring to it, or a copy of it she has Zell make for her. Squall's ring has a "lionheart" design on it. My memory is spotty, but you might want to go back and play the second half of the game again - I'm sure there's a good view of the rings at least in the floating-in-space sequence.

Hey ^^
Rinoa has 2 rings on her necklace, one is just a plain silver ring, and the other is the copy of Squall's Griever ring.
I've heard some rumors that the silver ring is actually Julia Heartilly's ring, but I dunno...
If you want to get them, I say the best bet would be to get them from Ebay (the 3 ring-set) since it's pretty close to the ones in the game ^^
If you want to see a close-up pic of these rings, go to the site below... I couldn't direct link the pic, so you might wanna dig around the site >^^<

No idea. I wrote a fic once that incorporated Seifer giving it to her, but that's just how I like to think of it.

Wow... just... wow. That site has so much detail on the entire Rinoa costume. Thanks krystal1314.

Koumori: Now that you mention it, I think I do remember Rinoa asking Zell to copy the ring for her. I really do need to blow the dust off my FF8 CD-ROMs...

I'm thinking about it. I'm seriously thinking about it. I just said to my friends one day, "I'm gonna be the male Rinoa!" And now I really want to have a Rinoa costume done by A-Kon.

I read somewhere that she actually has three rings... one has her family emblem on it or something, but I don't think she ever wore it in the game.. ^-^;;

I always thought that her first ring was from her mother Julia, since whenever she was in deep thought or needed help, she looked at the ring and it reminded her of her mother...??
