With school bullying and other troubling social issues making news on a daily basis, the original Kindness Reminder Ring, String-Ring™
, has expanded its inventory to include charms that are designed to be attached to the items we use daily to promote peace. The first in the Reminder to Be Kinder charm series is the Remember to Text Kindly charm just released this week.
From the owner, “We are in a unique period of time with modern social, economic, and environmental problems that need solving. It is imperative to take a new approach away from the behavioral thinking that created the issues we are now faced with. As individuals, we have a responsibility to get back to the basics of our humanity and create a kinder culture by treating one another with the respect and consideration for the benefit of all. Our Text Kindly charm should be attached to our cell phones and used as a cue to remember basic courtesy and ask ourselves: “Would I want to be on the receiving end of the text I’m sending?”
opened for business in February of 2008 selling the unique, sterling silver, Kindness Reminder Ring. Making a twist on the ancient custom of tying a string around one’s finger to keep an idea from escaping, the String-Ring™
is designed to hold a piece of colored string in place with 4 anchor holes and a bed groove for the string to sit within the quality silver jewelry. “Our intention is to showcase the colored string and its symbolic message of kindness”, says String-Ring™
creator, Tina Mansfield. The rings are sold with 20 colors of string, each color representing a specific kindness reminder. A few color examples are:
Gold- the color of wealth represents giving and should remind us to be generous with our time and attention
Silver- the color signifying wisdom reminds us to forgive
Blue- the color of tranquility encourages patience
Green- the color of nature celebrates our earth and reminds us to respect her.
serves not only as a unique piece of jewelry but, more importantly, as a tool to promote kindness through everyday interactions. All String-Ring™
products are made from .925 sterling silver and can be purchased at String-Ring.com. A sterling silver, red string lanyard may be purchased separately. Red is the symbolic color of love and kindness.
The company plans to expand the Reminder to Be Kinder charms this year to include key ring charms for cautious driving, wallet charms for conscious spending, and diary charms for random acts of kindness journaling.
