i must admit, i have never been comfortable with the 'ring' idea either however, in the work i do in South Africa with JPII's Theology of the Body, sometimes it's a good idea to give young people something tangible to remind them of their new-found desire to be chaste  (new-found because for many this is something they've never heard of, believe it or not!)  We cant afford the rings so one of the young ladies designed  "Purity Candles" which is lit and prayers offered, when faced with difficulties in this area.  By the way, in hisLove and Responsibility, Wotjila portrays chastity as a very positive virtue without denying that it is a "difficult and long-term matter ...wait paitently for it to bear fruit".
