: Anybody know the meaning of Elvis Presley's "Wear my ring around your neck"?

In the 1950s and 1960s, when Elvis's career flourished, among some teenage couples who were "going steady" (dating each other regularly and exclusively), the girl wore the boy's school ring on a chain around her neck, as jewelry. It was a marker of their relationship.
