We get that this is supposed to be an empowering thing, and maybe some women will be so excited and releaved to be free from their exes they'll be psyched to have a piece of jewelry representing their split.Okay, we get it that women buy jewelry. It's as natural as guys buying... well, it's natural.
Divorce isn't something to be proud of. When I got my divorce I felt a number of emotions. Relief, sadness, failure. A well-meaning friend gave me a Christmas tree ornament that symbolized a new beginning. I threw it in the trash.
Still, a ring to symbolize failure? Yeah, that's empowering. However, when I was single and looked down the bar to see a woman with a ring on her left hand ring finger, I considered her off limits. Verboten. Not happening. If we fell into conversation later and she told me that the ring was a divorce ring, I'd write her off as some kind of loon.
