In a revealing Instagram post, former Miss South Africa Claudia Henkel addressed why she still wears a ring on that finger after her divorce.

Claudia, who split from husband Orin Roesstorff after four years of marriage, explained the symbolism of the ring, saying: "I bought this ring for myself and made a promise that I will love and respect myself before I give my heart away again!"

"In saying that so many of us feel the need to fill the empty void with another person as quick as possible, but those choices often lead us to making or falling for the same type of person over and over again," the mother of two added.

According to the post, 5 February marks two years since Claudia "left" her ex-husband and she says that the ring symbolises "more than just a material object" but rather that her heart is happy and soul is content.
