Single? Divorced? There's a Ring for That
You don't have to get married to get your own special ring.   (?Idhren)

Not engaged, but just dying for an oh-so-special ring to call your own? Great news: Thanks to today’s brilliant jewelry marketers, there’s a ring for every relationship status you’d like to broadcast to the world, be it “available and happy” or “divorced, available, and happy.” Websites like offer you a silver band that promises to deliver the message, “I am an intelligent, empowered individual”…who also just so happens to be single and looking.

The trend goes even further, reports the New York Times, with more divorced people starting to turn their wedding bands into “divorce rings” (picture a severed band with a stitched-together gap). If you just can’t bear the sight of your wedding band, no problem: D Jewelry Company will sell you a brand-new divorce ring. Want to go one step further? Consider the Wedding Ring Coffin.
