Pretty thing

I love this.

Got the image off of Elephantine, a beautiful blog about beautiful things.  I'm not much for rings in general, the only one I wore on a regular basis was a birthstone ring my parents got me-one that I was forced to stop wearing because my friend's cat Action Jackson did something to it and now it is gone forever.  I think he might have eaten it.  Or worked some cat-voodoo on it.

Aren't the two kissing birds (turtledoves?) just the sweetest thing though?  I would love to see someone make a variation of this for an engagement ring so that I can ogle it or be jealous of it or be really happy to have it on my hand and not even notice the person who I've just agreed to marry.
