High-end department store Bloomingdale is offering an 18-karat gold ring emblazoned with a one-carat diamond hashtag for the Twitteratis. The hashtag symbol is no longer just a feature on Twitter to allow users to surf through the trending topics, but designers and retailers are cashing in hashtags to make a fashion statement. The latest bauble further solidifies the enormous impact of social media on retail fashion.
The ring, created by Khai Khai Jewelry is encrusted with diamonds, totaling a worth of $825. But if you are looking to set a trend with something little less expensive, the New York-based designer is also selling a host of Twitter-centric jewelry options featuring hashtags, ampersands, exclamation points and @ symbols.
