French designer Gisèle Ganne has created a line of divorce rings ($1,348) for the woman ready to convey to the world "a defiant 'I don't.'" Ganne's designs subvert traditional wedding symbols by combining a bird skull with a bride's bouquet and a single gem. The ring can be used to celebrate, advertise, or mourn the end of a union, and the long beak has a decidedly insolent look on the hand. The pieces are available in 18-karat gold or silver, and there's even a knuckle-duster — "for those who are going through a really bad divorce." Source: Daily Mail
