Kayan Lahwi Stackers - Feathered...

I'm obsessed with mini stacking rings, and wanted to put an Esther Eve spin on the trend. A stand-out, gorgeous set of 10 stacking rings, with an 11th in the middle bearing a feathered charm. Each ring is seperate, so they can be worn spread out over several fingers, stacked on one, with or without the feather charm...the combinations are yours to play with. The feather charm is soldered permenantly onto the ring, yet it will still dangle and move with you, drawing attention and admiration.

The Kayan Lahwi tribe from Myanmar, are the group of women that wear the stacked brass coils around their neck, as one of their ancient tradions still employed. They are purely for beautification purposes, as elongated and slender necks compared to the men, render them more attractive. Contrary to popular belief, research has shown that these rings are not extremely detrimental to the womens bone structure and health, and many have removed them even after 40 years of wear, and have been in excellent condition and health after several days of neck muscle strengthening and adjustment.

I'm reminded of...
"Beauty in things exists merely in the mind which contemplates them."
- David Hume
