Inspirational jewelry is a great way to encourage a friend or family member to keep chasing their dreams. If you know someone who was the first person in their family to attend law school, celebrate their accomplishments with a special piece of jewelry. We love this dandelion ring because it reminds us of making wishes on dandelion heads when we were little. The ring is 5mm wide and is solid sterling silver. The inside of the ring is inscribed with the words “I wish”. Consider pairing it with this “I refuse to sink” bangle.
