This Pinky Ring Is Spreading a Powerful Message of Self-Love to Women

It's an engagement ring to yourself 💍.

Ladies, in the midst of all the things you take on in your life (work, school, motherhood, "adulting," etc.) do you ever forget about yourself? L.A.-based jewelry company Fred and Far is here to remind you that it's v. important to make a commitment to loving yourself. The brand's Self Love Pinky Ring, created by founders Samira Far and Melody Godfred, is here to inspire you to put yourself first.

"When you wear a Fred + Far Self Love Pinky Ring, you pinky promise to choose yourself, honor yourself, and remember yourself on a daily basis," their website states. The sterling silver pinky ring retails starting at $150 for your choice of 14k yellow, white, or rose gold. The gem is crafted from conflict-free white sapphire, which means the stones are not made in impoverished working environments.

Far and Godfred told Racked that they were inspired by the engagement ring, which is the only ring women usually wear to symbolize commitment. "We harness of [sic] the power of the divine feminine through our symbol of the upside triangle," Far told Racked. "There's no other ring like it on the market. Most pinky rings are either inspired by traditional men's signet rings, or are simply thin little bands."

The pinky ring is here for every woman to realize the power of loving themselves first, before giving the same kind of love to another person. The founders put a lot of effort into picking out a stone that's representative of their message. They told Racked that after "scouring the earth" and researching for over a year, they finally discovered the perfect lab-created, conflict-free stone.

"A lab-created stone is conflict-free — this means the stone didn't cause a civil war or force individuals to work in horrific conditions. Instead it had a clean journey before reaching the hands of our tribe members, who are making the very important decision to commit to themselves," Far told Racked. "Wherever you may be in your life, the start of your self-love journey needs to be one with clean intentions and history. Melody and I feel strongly that a conflict-free stone also has conflict-free energy."
