    Doing some work on themes and symbols in An Inspector Calls and I'm trying to understand what the engagement ring in Act One symbolises?

    it shows obviously, materialistically, that they're officially engaged. sheila, in particular, says that she feels truly engaged once gerald gives her the ring, which gives the audience the impression that she is a materialistic character and values physically valuable things; this is later emphasised again when she's admiring her ring instead of listening to her father's capitalist speech. any genuine love in the relationship could also be questioned as she immediately shows her mother the ring before kissing gerald hastily- what does she value more- her mother's approval or gerald?
