Rings on the candles

Question about birthday party scene in the movie Guinevere.

During the birthday party scene, there was a jazzy rendition of a birthday song during which various party goers were dropping rings from their fingers over the lit candles on the birthday cake. Was there some symbolic reason for this to happen at the main characters twenty first birthday party? I'm thinking it was some coming of age sexual thing...

Not sure exactly, but I've heard of a superstition that says that if you find a ring in a piece of cake it means you're going to marry (usually in the cake, not on-top of it).

It might have something to do with that. I can't remember the scene off the top of my head. Good movie though.
