ON [Interracial] MARRIAGE
Share what "Loving v. Virginia (1967)" means to you for a chance to win a handmade set of Loving Day wedding rings!
I’ve been creating socially conscious jewelry for over 10 years now. One of my first collections was called "RIGHTS" and stemmed from my obsession with “Loving v. Virginia (1967)” -- the case that made interracial marriage legal in the US. I took the seemingly cryptic case ID# that granted my Irish-American mother and Chinese-American father marriage equality and engraved it onto wedding rings and jewelry. This case would become even more special to me in 2011, when I married my multi-ethnic wife and partner, Radika.
Every year, we team up with Ken Tanabe and the awesome folks at LovingDay.org to create a Loving Day Wedding Ring Giveaway. This year, we've upped the eco-friendly factor by handcrafting our rings from 100% recycled silver. We've also added new lettering that will make your inscription even more unique and whimsical. Each ring will be engraved with the case ID# for "Loving v. Virginia (1967)".
