    Hi,
    I got this ring with Hebrew words as a present, and I was curious to know what it says.
    I know it's awfully trivial, but I couldn't look it up on-line, because I can't match the letters on a virtual keyboard.
    If possible, I would like to know the transliteration of the words as wells as their meaning.

    Here's the image:

    Thank you in advance.

    This type of engraving theme appears to be common on rings associated with kabbalah.

    For example,
    http://www.special-jewelry.com/index.php?m=s.pr&ud=6779

    The Hebrew letters are מהש - אלד - סאל.

    samekh – alef – lamed (סאל)
    alef – lamed – dalet (אלד)
    mem – he – shin (מהש)

    Each triplicate represents one of the supposed seventy-two names of God in Kabbala.
