Love is what it’s all about — and, increasingly, folks are waking up to the fact that loving yourself is often just as important as loving someone else. A self-love ring is one way to show that you’re committed to the beautiful, hard and oh-so-necessary task of loving yourself.
What’s a self-love ring, you might ask? Pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a ring you buy for yourself and wear in a spirit of love and compassion for the essence of who you are. Thinking about treating yourself to a self-love ring? We think it’s a great idea, and here’s why!
1. You deserve a self-love ring.
Let’s get one thing clear right away: If you’re wondering whether you deserve a self-love ring, the answer is yes, you do! Yeah, we’re talking to you — because whatever you do and whoever you are, you’ve got the right to love yourself. A self-love ring is the ultimate way to tell everyone that you are who you are, and that you love the person you see when you look in the mirror.
2. A self-love ring can make an eye-catching accessory.
Whether or not you regularly wear other rings, a self-love ring often makes a striking signature jewelry piece. It’s a great excuse to choose something a little bit flashy that will make you the center of attention, such as one of our brilliant and affordable gemstone rings. If subtlety is more your style, check out our minimalist rings for more simple designs that still feel vital and personal.
3. A self-love ring can remind you to forgive yourself for mistakes.
Many of us beat ourselves up when we make a mistake. It’s an understandable tendency, but it’s also important to recognize and break out of when it happens. A self-love ring can be a great reminder to practice compassion toward yourself and try to react with understanding instead of negativity. It says that, even if you make mistakes like every other human, you’re worth making a commitment to.
4. Self-love rings come in all styles and materials.
There’s really no such thing as choosing the wrong kind of self-love ring. You might choose a simple solid-color band or an elaborate piece with multiple stones and intricate designs. You could select the elegance of sterling silver or the warmth of rose gold. For those whose style is a little more out there, our unique rings are made from materials as diverse and intriguing as carbon fiber, elk antler and bourbon barrels. The only must is to choose something that’s meaningful to you and that fits your vision of who you are!
5. A self-love ring can celebrate overcoming hard times.
We’ve all gone through big challenges in our lives, and the process of healing and moving on often isn’t easy or simple. A self-love ring offers a way to commemorate your moments of struggle while honoring your commitment to yourself. Your ring can stay with you as a memento of how far you’ve come and how far all of us still have to go in fighting our own battles.
6. A self-love ring can give you confidence.
It takes courage and confidence to own the way you walk, talk, dress and more. It also takes practice and patience, so let your self-love ring remind you every time you walk into a room: You’ve got this! By choosing a ring that reminds you of who you are and what you stand for, you can make it easier to draw strength from the parts of your identity that you treasure the most.
