Well, first of all, I would suggest you read the forum rules, especially the one regarding the topic of your posts.

Second of all, welcome to our forum :-) We are here to help and be helped :-)

And, last, but not least, I would attempt a translation of the phrase given, as follows:

Ο Ιησούς σ' αγαπά, κι εγώ το ίδιο


Bear in mind that, since greek is a totally different language from english, context is a crucial factor towards accuracy.

Is it a special ring? Is it a wedding ring?

Hm... That would do, I suppose...

Alternatives:
''Ο Ιησούς σ' αγαπάει, σ' αγαπάω κι εγώ'' (Jesus loves you and I love you, too)
''Ο Ιησούς σ' αγαπάει'' on the one side and ''Κι εγώ σ' αγαπώ'' on the other side (Jesus loves you- I love you, too)

Hi F_idάνι,

I really thank you for your help earlier on... however, i do not know if this is the place to ask you but do you think you could do me one more favour? :P

I need help in the pronounciation of the phrase as you have given me... ''Ο Ιησούς σ' αγαπάει''  and ''Κι εγώ σ' αγαπώ'' , as i would like to be able to say it out, since this is of meaning to us.. hehe

Would really really appreciate your help very very much! :)

Take care!

Efi must have gone to bed, Redd.  Here's how you say it:

''Ο Ιησούς σ' αγαπάει = oh yee-sooss sah-gah-pie (yes, rhymes with "pie")

Κι εγώ σ' αγαπώ = kee e-go sah-gah-po.

Stressed (accented) syllables are in bold type.  Be sure to pronounce those "g"s really softly, in the back of your throat.

Billberg did a great job, my small note would be that Ιησούς is Eessous not Yeessous. Also the letter g is pronounced like the french r.
