Merchant of Venice

Portia gives Bassanio the ring with a warning, and Bassanio accepts the ring with his own pledge. How is this contract or bond similar to and different from the one made in Venice?

If Bassanio loses the ring or gives it away, he will lose her love. At least she doesn't demand a pound of Bassanio's flesh.
