Definition: Baha'i Ringstone Symbol
One of the main symbols of the Bahá'í Faith, it is named for its common use on Bahá'í rings. It consists of two stars (representing the "twin manifestations" of the Báb and Bahá'u'lláh) interspersed with a stylized Bahá’ (Persian for "Glory").

Designed by `Abdu'l-Bahá , the ringstone symbol, as its name implies, is the most common symbol found on rings worn by Bahá'ís, but it is also used on necklaces, book covers, and paintings, as well as in the architecture of the Shrine of the Báb.

The ringstone consists of two stars (representing the "twin manifestations" of the Báb and Baha'u'llha) interspersed with a stylized Bahá’ (Persian for "Glory") whose shape is meant to recall the three onenesses.
