by-breanne-candy-rungsSomeone once said, “If you liked it then you should’ve put a ring on it.”  Was it Confucius or Beyonce?  I always get those two mixed up.  In any case, a few years ago, someone did actually like it enough to put a ring on it.  Sadly, he didn’t like it enough to keep his hands off of his boss’s secretary.  No harm, no foul– saved me from a life in the suburbs drinking  wine by the liter (and I don’t mean Santa Margherita) while coming up with new reasons to run errands at Target (the only entertainment in town besides Bert’s Stadium Sports Bar, formerly known as Blue Bonnet, RIP).

Sure, that experience may have made me a bit gun shy when it comes to relationships with men, but it did nothing to deter my interest in jewelry.  Until it started giving me a rash, I even continued to wear my ring on the opposite hand simply because I liked the way it sparkled.  But what if you don’t happen to have your own sparkler sitting around for days when you need a little bit of bling to brighten your mood?

ByBreanne to the rescue.  Remember back in grade school the only thing better than making paperclip retainers or letting Elmer’s glue dry on your hand only to peel it off?  You know, those cavity causing candy delights called Ring Pops?  Fast forward to present day where Miss Butler has cleverly come up with a way to bring back that childhood nostalgia, while keeping things fashion forward.  Crafting statement rings sweet as sugar, literally, these candy rings provide functionality and fun for only an evening.  Perfect for party favors or even moonlighting as napkin rings at dinner parties, they are a serious step up from penis straws at bachelorette parties.

They say diamonds are forever, but some things are only meant to be temporary.  Have your fun and eat it too- not something you can do with diamonds. A cracked tooth?  Now that is forever.
