The superstition of not walking under a ladder originated 5,000 years ago in ancient Egypt. A ladder leaning against a wall forms a triangle, which was regarded as a sacred shape. In ancient Greece, it was common for people to consult “mirror seers,” who told their fortunes by analyzing their reflections. The mirror was dipped into water and the person was asked to look into the glass. If his image appeared distorted, he was likely to die. If clear, he would live. In the first century A.D., the Romans added a caveat to the superstition. It was believed that peoples’ health changed in 7 year cycles and therefore a distorted image resulting from a broken mirror meant seven years of misfortune. Around 3,500 BCE, the ancient Sumerians first took to nullifying the bad luck of spilled salt by throwing a pinch of it over their left shoulder. This ritual spread to the Egyptians and later, the Greeks. Are you superstitious? Let people know in this delicate yet impactful ring.

It's so simple and elegant and works awesome when stacked with some of the other bands available. I put the white apex and the vena cava ring around mine if I want to fancy it up.
I ordered the superstitious ring in gold and I love it. Its exactly as pictured and got to me faster than I expected. I will be ordering many more pieces.
I have purchased five rings, two pins, and two bags from Little Rooms since 2018. Guaranteed to always get a compliment and some appreciative stares when wearing this line. I love that it’s quirky yet stately, bizarre and yet subtle. It fits my aesthetic very well, and I will continue to shop here for years to come.
Ordered this ring in a size 6, which is my normal size. It fits perfectly and I wear it almost every single day! It shipped out the same day I purchased. I also love the minimalist look to it. Definitely recommend if you’re thinking of buying it.
