Silver animal rings seem to be catching on lately, but actually choosing your animal can be difficult because there are so many to choose from. Are you a fashionable octopus? A dolphin? A snake? Or are you a dinosaur eating fried chicken like we saw over at Verameat? There are a lot of silver animals that you could put on your hands, and right now we're pretty charmed by this little guy from Pocket and Spark. The beaver option is unusual and quirky-cute, and he's got a great little face. He has tiny little teeth, a cross-hatched tail, and bright little eyes made of conflict-free black diamonds.
His creators say, "the beaver is a marvelous architect. He alters his environment more drastically than any other animal, save humans. ... This beaver is cast in bronze with a sterling silver lining to keep your finger from turning green. His diligent eyes are black diamonds (conflict free). He may look VERY heavy, but he is actually only a little heavy." He's $250 and sized to order.
