Jewelry designer wants you to swap your engagement ring for a septum ring
Kiss that dream of wearing a princess-cut diamond engagement ring goodbye.
The newest trend in engagement jewelry involves your nose, rather than your finger. At least, that's what Delfina Delettrez wants.
The jewelry designer introduced diamond septum engagement rings in her spring/summer 2016 collection. Septum rings — the rings that hang from the cartilage that divides your nostrils — are having a moment right now, with everyone from Zoë Kravitz to Madonna to Lady Gaga wearing them.
"Maybe we can move away from having to wear an engagement ring — introduce engagement rings, engagement earrings, engagement bracelets, and to add a little punkiness to it, a little irony, I wanted to introduce the engagement nose ring," Delettrez told Vogue.com.
Though the septum ring is having a moment right now, they've actually been around for centuries as both a symbol of religion and power.
While it's difficult to believe the idea of a septum engagement ring will actually catch on, it's definitely a fun alternative for those who don't want to follow the pack. And if diamonds aren't your thing? There are a few other options in the designer's new collection, too.
Delettrez's designs don't require a piercing either, so they don't take as much of a commitment as, say, a marriage.
