*This Ring Can Be Resized.

Once upon a time, in ancient Greece, there was a young, overly-ambitious young man by the name of Icarus. Trapped on the island of Crete (uhm, was that a bad thing?), with his inventor father, Daedalus, they longed to escape and experience the world. Daedalus fashioned two wings for Icarus made out of feathers and wax and in ultimate "Dad fashion", warned him of the dangers of flying to low to the sea, and too high towards the sun. Icarus took off with an “I got this” attitude and did decent for a while. But the rush and power of being able to fly overtook him and up and up he went, not noticing he was flying too close to the sun. The heat melted the wax of the makeshift wings, and soon enough there was nothing left. As Icarus fell into the sea, we wonder if the exhilarating feeling of flying had been worth it.

Luckily, we listen to our parents a little bit more these days, and know not to fly so close to the sun. Still craving that feeling though, we look else where. We found it in this Georgian ring. In Spanish astrology, garnets represent the sun and the placement of the stones is like a sunburst. So sorry Icarus, we can harness the warmth of the sun, and feeling beautifully bold, just by wearing this ring.
