Circle of Friends (Rondo's)

These ornaments known in Mexico as "Rondos", (Spanish word for round) are highly significant artefacts and have been ingrained in their culture for centuries. The burning candle represents the persons spirit and the circle of friends or angels surround and guard the spirit, bringing good health and luck to the recipient.

They are traditionally given in various sizes and shapes as gifts to loved ones, family members or friends who may be experiencing loss, grief or difficulties. The Mexicans believe that the lighting of the candle (or spirit) once a week will ensure good health and good luck, to the owner of the "Rondo".
