This is a simple accessory. A penny, set in a ring, turned into cool. What's extra great about this ring ( and the Lucky Penny necklaces that this designer, Tashka by Beatrice, offers) is that I or you can get ANY year on the penny. I got my birth year, because I like to remember I have a foot in the 1970's. Also great for graduations, anniversary's, a "good year" or whatever! I just love it, and I cant wait to get mine. They are available at www.willowst.com, under Lucky Penny Ring from Tashka by Beatrice.
