String-Ring: The Kindness Reminder Ring Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed with 145 comments. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Sam!

Tying a string around your finger as a reminder is an ancient belief, thought to keep an idea from escaping- literally tying the idea to yourself.
The String-Ring™ is a cue to remind yourself, and those who notice it, to be kind to one another. To do a kind act, or even think something kind. Designed to be threaded with the provided colored string, String-Ring reminds you of the particular act of kindness you wish to remember. Each String-Ring™ comes with 20 replaceable colored strings, a jute bag, polishing cloth, stickers, and a list of color meanings.
Colors signify different things from culture to culture. When choosing the color string to be worn on your String-Ring, keep in mind some of these common meanings to communicate your intentions.

How to wear: The String-Ring can be worn on any finger. But, according to the ancient belief, it is the index finger of the left hand that is said to most influence memory. Reminding us to remember kindness.

What you get: All 4 sizes are .925 Sterling Silver and are packaged with 20 colored strings (2 packets of 10 colored strings in each packet), 2 stickers, a polishing cloth and jute bag. Your ring will come pre-threaded in the "Basic" style.

The String-Ring comes in four sizes: 4, 6,8 and 10. String-Ring will adjust up or down one size for the perfect fit.

The many ways to thread your ring is up to you. Create your own message & style and have fun! Click here to see some suggestions.
