This handmade silver ring proves that we live in a digital age. Everything can be digitally represented nowadays, including the symbols we use to represent emotions like love. This jewelry design by Smiling-SilverSmith resembles the iconic Internet lingo of a heart.

For those who are not familiar, the Internet heart consists of a bracket and the number three; together, they’re supposed to resemble a sideways shape of a heart. The ring takes this and transfers it into jewelry. Made of polished sterling silver, the ring gives off a chic and modern vibe.

Unlike the fluffy red hearts we often see around Valentine’s day, this digital heart consists of clean-cut edges and is colorless. The design exemplifies contemporary typography, as well as reminding us that technology is affecting even the fashion and jewelry industry. Stats for Internet Lingo Love Rings Trending: Older & Mild
