Spiced Lady Ring
The Spiced Lady Ring, designed by Chao & Eero Jewel, is one of the most unusual juxtapositions of fashion and function that we've seen in a while. The elegantly shaped 1.35-in. high ring is crafted from sterling silver and is sleek and comfortable to wear. When not in use, the ring can be used as a small, free-standing sculpture, as its flat bottom allows it to remain upright unaided.
The unusual feature is that it is also a salt/seasoning shaker. A small rubber stopper on the underside of the ring allows it to be filled with salt or other seasonings, then shake them out as you cook or to add an extra zing to a restaurant meal. Know a cook with a birthday coming up? This could be the perfect gift. There is a picture of the ring being worn after the jump. Price: $345.
