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.
