The Carrotbox is for anyone who loves glass rings, lucite rings, wood, agate, plastic, resin, acrylic, jade, etc. anything, as long as there's no metal!
Why Glass and Plastic Rings?
It all started because I'm allergic to metals. I can occasionally wear sterling for short periods of time, but never on my fingers and never anything that only looks like silver or gold. But I'd love glass and plastic even if I weren't allergic to "regular" rings. They're fun! And colourful! And a blast to collect!
But Glass and Plastic are Difficult to Find
Not impossible, but difficult. It's a big, metal world out there! Most jewellery is either silver or gold; plastic went through waves of popularity throughout the 20th century but, since rings are small and easy to lose, most of the surviving vintage pieces are larger items like necklaces and bangles.
About the Shop
The main mission of my ring shop is to spread glass, plastic and other non-metal rings to as many fabulous people as possible. I work hard to find quality items if I wouldn't wear it myself, I won't sell it.
I opened up shop because after an exhaustive search of the www trying to buy rings for my own collection I realized nobody out there had a site devoted to non-metal rings. Well, now there is, and I've learned I'm not the only one with this obsession :)
