The picture on the left is Frobisher’s hand at the beginning of the film when he’s holding the Luger, and the picture on the right is Sixsmith’s hand while he’s in the elevator with Luisa. I never quite noticed, but doesn’t that look like the same ring? Sixsmith’s is turned off to the side, but the square-ish bit on both rings looks the same to me. The question now is did they get matching rings, or did Sixsmith wear Frobisher’s ring after he died?
Let’s compare different screencaps of hands, shall we?
When Frobisher puts his hand on Sixsmith’s neck to kiss him, for a brief moment you can see the ring is on his right pinky finger.
Though I grant that it’s a fuzzy picture, we can see Frobisher is wearing the ring. This establishes so far that Frobisher owned the ring prior to his employment by Ayrs and did not happen to later, for whatever reason, purchase it with any remaining funds he had. That possibility itself seems far-fetched, but better to eliminate all possibilities.
Now, what of Sixsmith’s ring? I attempted to look for a shot of Sixsmith’s hands from when he read the letter or later when he spoke with the hotel manager, but I really could not avoid the scene where Sixsmith discovers Frobisher’s body. Here is Sixsmith’s left hand - the hand we see earlier with the ring - when he holds Frobisher’s head.
Looking at his left pinky finger, we see no ring. From this we can safely say Sixsmith wore Frobisher’s ring on his hand after his death.
Now the rest of this is just pure personal speculation. The fact Sixsmith wears the ring on his left hand, and, as far as I can tell from the novel and film, does not marry, indicates he wears the ring as a sign of promise to Frobisher. In many cultures wearing the ring on the left ring finger is a sign of marriage, but because he never married anyone, never found anyone else after Frobisher, the left pinky finger was as close as he could get. Also the fact the ring is on the opposite hand Frobisher wore it is symbolic of their relationship: the two of them were opposite not only in appearance of dark- and fair-haired but in personality - the composer and the scientist. Frobisher, the creative, uncontrollable free spirit, and Sixsmith, the studious, careful soul.
Sixsmith wore Frobisher’s ring for four decades after his death, and until his own, remembering the love they shared and possibly still hoping for the “better world” to meet with him.
I actually notice that when I watched the movie, after 3 times I’m sure that Sixsmith took Robert’s ring after his death. At the beginning, the ring on Robert’s right pinky figure is simply a symbol of noble/rich family. However when Sixsmith got the ring, it become a piece of Robert that will also be with him, a ring on left pinky also means widowed, so he had Robert as lover and would only love him.
