Biblical Meaning Of Ring In The Dreams: What It Means To Be Given Ring In Dreams

If you're one of those who have been seeing ring in your dreams before, you should read this article on the biblical meaning of ring in dreams.
Biblical Meaning Of Ring In Dreams

One of the strangest dreams that people see is a dream about rings. If you found yourself here during your search for the meaning of ring in dreams, I presume you must have seen a ring in your dream—and you're eager to know the meaning. So follow up as we explore the biblical meaning of ring in dreams. 

Seeing a ring in a dream is not one of the common dreams out there. I'm aware that not many people are seeing such dreams. For anyone to have seen such a dream, it means that there is something very spiritual going on in their life. 

Esther 3:12 ESV
Then the king’s scribes were summoned on the thirteenth day of the first month, and an edict, according to all that Haman commanded, was written to the king’s satraps and to the governors over all the provinces and to the officials of all the peoples, to every province in its own script and every people in its own language. It was written in the name of King Ahasuerus and sealed with the king’s signet ring.

Most of us are only familiar with engagement and wedding rings, but the purpose and use of rings go beyond these two. People see different kinds of dreams about rings. There are women who see a man engage them in their dream and put a ring on their finger. There are men who see fellow men giving them a ring in their dreams. There are people dreaming about losing their ring.

These dreams are obviously worth our attention. After seeing such a dream, there is always that inner knowing that there is something more to that dream.

Since ring dreams come in various forms, in this article, we will talk about the following:

  • Dream of engagement ring on left hand
  • Dream of engagement ring on right hand
  • Finding a ring meaning
  • Spiritual meaning of losing a ring
  • Spiritual meaning of finding a ring
  • Losing wedding ring meaning

Dreams about rings could either come from God or the enemy. Also, these dreams can either be a good or bad omen—depending on the source of the dreams. Ring dreams are very spiritual dreams; such that could make or mar the life of the dreamer. These dreams shouldn't be taken lightly. 

Rings have very powerful spiritual significance. Even in the physical world, it is not advisable that people wear a ring without having a specific reason or purpose for wearing it. 

What does it mean when you dream of someone giving you a ring? Someone giving you a ring is tantamount to letting you know that you belong to them; they have entered into a covenant with you; an unbreakable bond exists between you two or you have been marked for a particular purpose.

Haggai 2:23 ESV
On that day, declares the LORD of hosts, I will take you, O Zerubbabel my servant, the son of Shealtiel, declares the LORD, and make you like a signet ring, for I have chosen you, declares the LORD of hosts.”

That does sounds really serious, doesn't it? No one randomly shows up from nowhere to put a ring on anyone. Whenever any exchange of rings takes place, it means there is something really serious going on between the two parties involved. 

If you saw someone giving you a ring in your dream (and you accepted it), you should understand that something really serious had just taken place in your life, spiritually. In this case, it is important that the dreamer be able to identify the source of the dream. If this dream came from God, there is nothing to worry about. But if it came from the enemy, it is time to seriously start praying to annul it. 

Spiritual Meaning Of A Ring

There is a very deep spiritual significance behind rings. At least in Africa, we know that if people find you wearing many rings for no justifiable cause, they will begin to look at you with a face full of suspicion. They may even tag you “an evil person.” In our society today, a man of God is not expected to be seen with many rings on his fingers, lest he'll be called “a devil worshipper.”

Why are people quick to assume that someone is into the occult, simply because they wear multiple rings, apart from their wedding ring? This is because we inherently know that rings carry deep spiritual symbolism. 

For instance, the “signet ring” is mentioned many times in the Bible. If you do your research, you will discover that this ring wasn't worn for fashion. In Biblical times, the signet ring was often worn by kings, nobles and government officials, for a very important purpose: giving a stamp of approval

Esther 3:10 NIV
So the king took his signet ring from his finger and gave it to Haman son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, the enemy of the Jews.

The signet ring comes designed with a raised, flat face on a shank. On its face is often an engraved image or icon, which could represent someone's initials, coat of arms, or any meaningful symbol.

We can liken the signet ring to what we call stamp pads today. Just as stamp pads are used in government organizations, offices and companies—to seal and approve documents; the signet ring played the very same roles. 

  • Signet rings were used to mark and seal documents by pressing the engraved face into hot wax. 
  • The signet ring was also scarcely used by other individuals as what we could consider a fingerprint today.  
  • The signet ring could also be passed to a successor as a symbol of transference of power. 

1. Rings For Adornment 

In Biblical times, rings were as well worn for adornment—as part of fashion. That hasn't changed even today. Earrings, nose rings and finger rings are still worn for adornment today. 

Ezekiel 16:11-12 NIV
I adorned you with jewelry: I put bracelets on your arms and a necklace around your neck, and I put a ring on your nose, earrings on your ears and a beautiful crown on your head.

But make no mistake about this: that even today, many still see wearing too many rings and other jewelries as weird. Anyone who goes about with many rings all over their body readily gives off an eerie vibe. 

Isaiah 3:18-23 NIV
In that day the Lord will snatch away their finery: the bangles and headbands and crescent necklaces, the earrings and bracelets and veils, the headdresses and anklets and sashes, the perfume bottles and charms, the signet rings and nose rings, the fine robes and the capes and cloaks, the purses. 

There were also instances where rings and other jewelries turned out to be an idol to God's people—that God promised to rid them of such. 

2. A Conveyance Of Authority And Power

When Joseph was elected as a governor in Egypt, one significant event that marked his inauguration into office was the transference of a signet ring—from Pharaoh to Joseph. This was a symbol of transfer of power. 

Genesis 41:41-42 NIV
So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I hereby put you in charge of the whole land of Egypt.” Then Pharaoh took his signet ring from his finger and put it on Joseph’s finger. He dressed him in robes of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. 

Being given ring in a dream could signify a conveyance of authority and power. But the strong determinant here is the one giving out the ring. 

I'm yet to have anyone share with me that, the Lord Jesus appeared in a dream and gave them a ring. If this ever happens, I'll say it's such a powerful and positive dream. 

But note that, neither God nor the devil will give anyone a ring in their dream, except there exists a strong covenant or a deal between the two parties. 

3. Stamp Of Ownership Or Acceptance

The parable of the prodigal son is always an interesting one; as there is always a new symbol awaiting to be unraveled each time we revisit it. 

Luke 15:22 ESV
But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet. 

When the prodigal son returned to his father, isn't it interesting that the first thing the father did wasn't to get him something to eat? But to put a ring on his finger. 

The father adorned him and put a ring on his finger. What stands out here is “the ring on his finger,” which signifies a stamp of ownership or symbol of acceptance—the father claiming back the son as his own. 

Since there are occasions where rings act as stamps of ownership, it is very risky to accept rings in dreams—especially from strangers. 

The enemy can go as far as masquerading as an acquaintance, to bind people to an evil covenant with him (against their will)—through such dreams. 

Dreaming Of A Ring Meaning

From what has been said so far, I believe you must have gotten a sneak peek into the meaning of ring in a dream. 

Ring in dreams will always symbolize the following:

  • A symbol of authority
  • A seal of approval 
  • The signature of a dignitary
  • A prove of wealth
  • A token of initiation
  • Emblem of ownership
  • Symbol of a covenant
  • A seal of friendship or agreement

Because rings carry so much spiritual symbolism, I wouldn't advise any Christian to accept rings in their dreams. Even when the dream appears to be a godly one, there should be reluctance in accepting any ring, except the Holy Spirit in you confirms it is safe to do so. 

There is a big difference between being given a ring in a dream and putting that ring on your finger, or someone putting a ring on your finger. Having your ring in a ring case and having it on your finger isn't the same thing. 

A dream of someone putting a ring on your finger can turn out to be a form of spiritual arrest. Many today are suffering the menace of evil spiritual covenants and initiations they ignorantly got themselves into, by accepting a ring in a dream. 

Many had their marital destinies and progress in life tied up spiritually, the moment someone showed up in their dream to put a ring on their finger. 

If you saw a strange person put a ring on your finger in a dream—without your consent—when you get out of that dream, you should start praying ruggedly to break that manipulation and spiritual covenant the enemy has attempted to put you in. 

A ring in the spiritual realm can become a control mechanism—where the giver of the ring gains control over the one they gave the ring to, in order to manipulate their life and steer their destiny the way it pleases them. 

Fake Engagement Ring Dream Meaning

To receive a fake engagement ring in a dream is a spiritual attack against the dreamer's ability to find and connect with their life partner. Such a dream should be canceled through fasting and prayer

Also understand that, if God has planned to connect you with your life partner (and your marriage is just by the corner), He would prefer to have you receive your engagement ring in the physical, than in the spiritual.

As a woman, if a strange man appears in your dream to engage and put a ring on your finger, this can turn out to be manipulation from a spiritual husband. You should wish to have your engagement happen in the physical world, not in your dreams.

Gold Ring In Dream Meaning

Gold rings in dreams often symbolize riches, wealth and blessings. If you had a gold ring in your dream, this could be a sign that God is about to bless you in the area of finances. This dream can as well point to a future marital bliss. 

Meaning Of Seeing A Wedding Ring In A Dream

If you're not yet married, seeing a wedding ring in a dream could symbolize a coming marital breakthrough. Trust the Lord as you pray this into fruition. 

Meaning Of Losing Ring In A Dream

Losing a ring in the dream can symbolize;

  • Loss of Anointing or spiritual power
  • Loss of a job or position of authority
  • Spiritual attacks against marriage
  • Loss of blessings

Meaning Of Losing Wedding Ring In A Dream

If a married person dreams about losing their wedding ring, this is obviously a spiritual attack against their marriage. This dream can also hint that there are things the dreamer needs to fix about their marriage, if they don't want to lose it. 

As an unmarried person, losing a wedding ring in a dream is obviously an attack from the enemy against your ability to get married. 

Prayer Against Evil Ring In Dreams

  1. By the power of God Almighty, I come against and destroy every Satanic manipulation against my marriage, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  2. I resist and reject every spiritual marriage with ungodly spirits, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  3. I renounce and denounce every existing spiritual marriage fighting my chances of meeting and connecting with the one for me, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  4. By the blood of Jesus Christ, I break every existing evil covenants I may have gotten myself into by accepting a ring in my dreams, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  5. Power of God, locate and arrest every agent of darkness who is bent on initiating me into their coven without my consent, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  6. Spiritual thieves after my marriage to ruin it by stealing my wedding ring, be arrested in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ! 
  7. By the authority of Jesus Christ, I recover my blessings that were stolen and diverted through evil ring dreams, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  8. I reject, I remove and return every evil ring tying me to evil covenants with the kingdom of darkness. I declare that from today onwards, the enemy has nothing on me, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  9. I frustrate further attempts of the enemy to gain control over my life through ring dreams, in the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  10. Every persistent demonic attack against my life through ring in dreams, I command you to cease now, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ!

Final Thoughts On Ring Dream Meaning

It is always advisable to not allow anyone to put a ring on your finger in a dream. To be on the safe side, pray that God makes your engagement and marriage happen physically, not spiritually in a dream.
