Wishin for the diamond cuffs, in search of a ring
Common is saying that this couple are trying too hard to make their relationship work.
“diamond cuffs” and “a ring” indicate gifts of jewellery and a marriage proposal. These are commonly natural progressions in any relationship, but the fact that this couple are “wishin” and “in search” of them indicates that they are not going to occur of their own accord.
