What exactly is a ring structure and how do we know it is present?

A ring structure forms when a chelate (a complex containing a ligand) attaches to a metal to form the structure. I believe the ring formation is due to the shape of the ligand attaching. An example was done in class with NH2-CH2-CH2-NH2

A ring structure forms when a chelate forms a ring of atoms around the central metal atom. Another example would be [CoN4(CH2)4].
