Unforgotten Ring

Sorry, this item has sold.


This feminine bow ring comes in brass or sterling silver options. It is intended to be worn as a midi ring but is available in regular sizes too. It is small, stackable, and adds a little mindfulness to your day.

This playful ring was inspired by the idea that if you tie a ribbon onto your index finger at the exact moment you are trying to commit something to memory your brain associates that activity with what you needed to memorize, keeping that pathway almost exclusively as a conduit for that memory. Whether you are a scatter brained mess, or wanting to remember a beautiful moment, or are remembering a lost loved one, this ring is for you.

The meaning behind this cute midi ring makes it a thoughtful gift for a friend or even just to treat yourself. It is tucked inside a hand stamped box and shipped securely in a bubble mailer.

This pretty little ware is prepped and soldered in our small studio in any size you desire. After soldering it is polished to a reflective shine and finished with a lacquer to prevent tarnishing.

Jeweler's brass is a quality alternative to the much more expensive gold that it imitates. You can also upgrade your ring to sterling silver for a small charge. This cutie is all polished up to a shiny finish for its new home but over time tarnishing will occur. A quick wipe with a polishing pad is all you need to bring life back to your ware but if you are in a bind simply submerge it in a squirt of ketchup and buff off. You can add a polishing pad to your order under the "Add-On" Tab.

This ring is available in a few pre-made sizes that are ready to ship. If you prefer a custom size or sterling silver please allow up to 3 weeks for your ring to be shipped.

Want a custom ring but need it sooner? An inexpensive rush order option can be purchased through the "Add On" tab.

As mentioned above, this ring is the perfect daily accessory. It is casual, fun, and looks great with other rings. My personal favorite way to wear my bow ring is on my index finger as a midi ring. I have selected a very important memory to associate with my ring and think of it often which is lovely. Please notice that this ring does have the two ribbons hanging off and it can potentially get caught in your hair, fabric, etc. so it’s good to be aware of what you are coming in contact with.

Care instructions

Your jewelry is finished with a water proof sealant before it ships. Over time the sealant may wear off and need additional polishing/resealing. Some ways to keep your jewelry looking sparkly and new include:

-Do not store your jewelry in a humid area such as a bathroom

-If you live in a humid climate consider storing your jewelry in an enclosed case, bag, or box to preserve the shine

-Avoid water, hand sanitizer, and chemicals as much as possible

-You can polish your jewelry easily with a polishing pad (available as an add-on) to make it look new again or if you are in a bind ketchup is commonly used. Just submerge your jewelry and buff off.

-A common home remedy to lacquer jewelry is clear nail polish

-You can always contact me

Sizing details

For sizing your fingers I definitely recommend consulting a local jeweler or purchasing a cheap ring sizer online. If you are unable to size your fingers as mentioned here are some other considerations:

The most common sizes I sell are
6 (slightly smaller than average)
7 (average)
8 (slightly larger than average)

If your fingers are very thin your size may run from 4-5
If your fingers are larger you may consider a 9-10
For men's sizing you can typically add two sizes.

You can also cut off the sticky part of a post-it note and wrap around your finger, marking where the ends meet. Measuring the post-it note in mm and converting (or messaging me) should give you a pretty accurate size.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Standard packaging for rings include a plastic capsule filled with styrofoam confetti in a hand-printed bubble mailer.

Standard packaging for necklaces include a hand stamped card-stock tag in a clear plastic protective sleeve that is shipped in a hand-printed bubble mailer.

Also available upon request (in your order notes) are hand stamped gift boxes.

For bridal parties or events feel free to message me about custom packaging for your order.

Will brass turn my fingers green?

There are many factors that affect metal such as hormones, sodium levels, and personal allergies. For that reason I can not confidently say that the brass will not turn your finger green. With that being said, it is more common that people have no reaction for the following reasons.

Brass does contain a small amount of nickel (which turns your fingers green). While I am heating the metal a lot of the nickel comes to the surface and is removed in the polishing phase. Additionally your jewelry is sealed with a water-proof wax that serves as a barrier from your skin and protects the shine of your piece.

If you are concerned about an allergy to brass you may consider sterling silver which very rarely causes a reaction.

This is the second ring I bought from TrashCatCollective and both are so cute! Because the shipping was delayed by covid, she sent me a gift in my order which was so sweet! Definitely give this artist your business!!

very cute and dainty, the metal used for the bow is still able to bend so if it gets caught on anything just re-shape it.
