90 Day Fiance: Steven Frend’s Strange Necklace Explained

90 Day Fiance Steven Frend is a hot topic among TLC fans. Fans criticize his treatment of Olga Koshimbetova. But, that’s not all they discuss. Another topic of discussion is the mysterious necklace Steven always wears. Steven is seemingly never without it. The necklace generates debate among fans. What’s the significance of it? What does it symbolize? Soap Dirt has the answer.

90 Day Fiance: Steven Frend’s necklace

A source behind the scenes at TLC spoke with Soap Dirt and dished on 90 Day Fiance Steven’s necklace. Steven’s deceased father’s favorite thing was the Sun Face symbol. The emblem is an ancient symbol of the Zuni people representing the Sun Father. The Sun Father is one of three main deities. It’s particularly fitting when you consider that he keeps the symbol as a tribute to his own father – whom he named his son Richie after.

Further, the source notes that the 90 Day Fiance star has a tattoo of the symbol on his back. This Sun Face design was the first tattoo Steven’s father had inked. It certainly seems like a fitting way to pay tribute. When fans first met Steven Frend on the TLC show, he talked about how he had a difficult home life and things became worse when his father passed away. The impact Steven’s father has on him is obvious.


90 Day Fiance: Steven and Olga’s special connection

A source close to the 90 Day Fiance couple revealed more about how Steven Frend and Olga Koshimbetova carry on that legacy in their own unique way. The couple recently got their own necklaces to carry on the tradition. What makes this unique is that each necklace has half of the symbol of the Sun Face. Each piece – when put together – is a perfect fit. This seems to be a symbolic way to represent their relationship goals as well.

Steven and Olga have had their share of struggles on 90 Day Fiance. There were initial struggles when baby Richie came. The couple got into fights when it came to the baby. At one point, Steven Frend felt neglected by Olga. As viewers saw last week in the first installment of the Tell All, Olga and Richie were still in Russia and not with Steven in America. Perhaps the necklaces serve as a physical reminder to keep pushing forward when things get tough. His fathers’ influence remains to this day.


What’s next for Steven and Olga?

When the 90 Day Fiance Tell All filmed back in November 2018, Olga was still waiting on her K-1 visa. The good news is that it was approved and she’s legally allowed to be in the United States. His Instagram account was recently hacked so there aren’t as many updates on his new account. Luckily for fans, Olga regularly updates her Instagram account with pictures of Steven and baby Richie. Now that Olga’s visa is approved, her family – like the two halves of the necklace – can be whole again.
