Right on time for Valentine’s Day, here is my latest design, the emoticon heart ring. Don’t know how to make an emoticon heart? Just put a less-than sign and a 3 together, and voilà! A heart.
Like my swear rings and asterisk ring, the emoticon heart ring is solid sterling silver. The band starts at size 6. As you can see in the picture, the band is open in the back so that you can adjust it to fit your finger.
The ring was inspired by gorgeous blogger Jordana of Clutch 22, who has always been a fan of my swear rings.
At some point, she said to me, “If you ever do emoticon heart rings, I’ll be the first to buy them!”
Sorry, Jordana! Gorgeous blogger Erin of Work With What You’ve Got got to this ring before anyone else.
Erin had the scoop on the new ring because she joined my Facebook fan page. I recently added a mini store to that page under the “Shop Now” button. I’ll be putting some new designs there first, as well as offering discounts on existing designs. If you want to be in the know, you need to become a Facebook fan!
I only made two of the emoticon heart rings to start. I had to see how I liked them! I did like them and they both sold. I have another batch of rings coming early next week and you CAN get them by Valentine’s Day but please select an express delivery option so that yours gets to you in time.
And stay tuned for a two-ring version of this look!
2 ring version?! I may have to hold out for that one!
Hi my dear-what can I say, a totally gorgeous ring and it looks so fabulous, well done on yet another stunning design xx

Wendy, I j’adore them. I was going to have swear rings for if I ever get married, but maybe it will have to be a heart instead <3

I am so excited to be the first owner of this amazing ring. It is so super perfect for me and of COURSE, the quality is amazing. It is heavier than it looks!
Susan Tiner says
I’m so out of it that I just recently learned what the heart emoticon is, and now here it is as a ring!
I like your site and will be back to visit again.
That’s awesome! When I get a job, my reward to myself is going to be a Wendy Brandes piece.
pretty prettty cute!!!!
Oh, I believe I just found my Valentine’s Day present.
I love it.
I LOVE this. It would go perfectly with my asterisk… Hmmm.
…My computer geek (I had to take JAVA) inside is going wild for this one. Curse my low fortunes!
that <3 ring is awesome!!
Emma at Daily Clothes Fix says
I love this. Sorry I should say I <3 this.
Have a lovely weekend, my dear!
Lenya Jones says
Oh my god! I LOVE it. Might have to get this one too
I feel like a total hipster for loving this. I’m not afraid to admit it though, I really do <3 this! Hahaha, couldn't resist sorry.
Love the ring! This is profoundly embarrassing, but I never knew that emoticon was a heart! It is SO obvious now!
That's Not My Age says
I’m in New York next week – want to meet for a coffee??
Totally <3 this! Such a cute idea, I think the swear rings are still my favourite though
Gina S. says
I just want to say congrats for your work! It’s incredible! Such a smart idea! I love all your designs and especially the <3 ring (at the same time I feel relieved for not being the only one without a clue that this emoticon was a heart. So, I've actually learned something today, yeah:)!!)
I’m glad my blog is entertaining AND educational!
The Licentiate says
I want one! But my bank balance won’t let me… Hopefully next time I get a windfall.

I can’t wait to see the two ring version.
I’ve been eying those swear rings for a while, but I’m not really a swear word kind of girl, so I’ve been holding out 🙂
I love this! It will probably be my first Wendy Brandes piece!
