The ring is our favorite symbol of love. Unfortunately, the very values that unite us – passion, creativity, honesty, and devotion – are often missing from how this precious token is formed. A ring's full potential for meaning exists bound by disingenuous practices and antiquated norms from which it can only be freed by the resolute collaboration of mindful artists and their patrons. Only then will we genuinely experience the spirit of wholeness the ring signifies.
So let's create a new way of forging the ring, free of the artifice that raises a barrier of irrelevance between our heads and our hearts. Let's strive for rings that reflect our hopes in a fusion of art and ethics, and which we'll proudly wield as true symbols of modern love.
