Firebox are fast becoming our go-to supplier of all things emoji, first launching cushions and now rings. Their new range of social media jewellery comes in seven flavours: Fist Bump, Heart Eyes, the OK sign, Pizza, the Peace sign, Sassy Girl and of course, the beloved Poo.
Sadly, the new ‘FU’ emoji isn’t in there – there’d be something delightfully meta about wearing a middle finger on your middle finger.
Since I’m an old git, these kind of remind me of the yin-yang rings we all wore in the 90s, stacking them with V-signs and the peace symbol while not actually doing anything about the conflicts in the world. Mind you, those ones cost about 99p from your favourite lava lamp-selling, incense-burning hippy shop, while the emoji rings will run you substantially more at £24.99 each. That’s presumably because they’re silver and gold plated, though we’d have preferred a single colour for the whole ring. Matchy matchy.
