Emma Watson recently went viral for claiming her relationship status - without shame. “I’m very happy being single.” She went on to explain, “I call it being self-partnered.” This phrase not only has a great ring to it, it holds a lesson for all of us - regardless of our status. If you’re looking for a self love ring to symbolize your #selfpartnered status, The Self Love Pinky Ring has represented this concept since its launch in 2016.
A few weeks later, actress Ryza Cenon followed suit - declaring herself self-partnered and putting a self-partnered ring on to signify her commitment - to herself. Ryza has taken a cue from the Fred and Far self love movement and Self Love Pinky Ring and is reclaiming the engagement ring as a symbol of self love and commitment. Ryza explained, "I said YES! . . . When the right one comes, I'll transfer this ring to my other hand and accept the right one to the perfect hand. I'm engaged with myself," she continued.” In wearing a self-partnered ring, Ryza gave thousands of other women to follow suit and claim their own worth as well.
The rise of the single positivity movement declares that self love is the path to wholeness and happiness, which is exactly what the Self Love Pinky Ring stands for. Because to be self-partnered is what we should all aspire to be. To claim ourselves, to take ownership of our wholeness, worth and happiness - this is the magic we strive for the women in this community.
This journey to loving yourself fully isn’t always clear or direct. The path can get clouded easily, especially with societal pressures. Emma shares how she feels about her approaching 30th birthday:
“Cut to 29, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I feel so stressed and anxious. And I realise it’s because there is suddenly this bloody influx of subliminal messaging around. If you have not built a home, if you do not have a husband, if you do not have a baby, and you are turning 30, and you’re not in some incredibly secure, stable place in your career, or you’re still figuring things out… There’s just this incredible amount of anxiety.”
Having a sparkling daily reminder of your wholeness and worth, and a community of women who practice the same values, can help you overcome these societal pressures.
I invite you to join the Fred and Far self love movement and experience the magic that choosing yourself will bring to your life, and into the lives of everyone around you, because self love fuels all love. Whether you are married, self-partnered, or at any point in between or beyond, you belong here.
If you’re ready to make this promise and want a daily reminder to be, choose, and love yourself, we hope you’ll take a look at our Self Love Pinky Ring collection as your self-partnered ring and self-love symbol.
