As of today, I'm officially in my LATE TWENTIES. Cue panic attack. Just kidding, it's fine. Just like Ross Geller, I'm fine. Fine! I'm smiling with the intensity of a thousand manic emojis at this very moment!!!

Anyway, while pondering what material possessions I'd enjoy having by my side through this journey into adulthood (AKA browsing the internet aimlessly on my phone), I came across a tiny, dainty, lovely li'l black diamond ring created by Japanese jewelry designer Satomi Kawakita and sold at Catbird. I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since. Now, normally I don't invest in fancy jewelry because, for lack of putting it a better way, I lose shit all the time. Especially tiny, dainty, lovely li'l rings. So while most people probably wouldn't consider a $200 piece of jewelry to fall outside the realm of reason, I pretty much restrict myself to disposably cheap, turn-your-finger-green pieces. Chic, right? But... BUT! What if 27 is ~*my year*~? What if now is the time for me to suddenly become an actual adult who is capable of owning nice things without losing and/or ruining them at an astonishing rate? Just go with me. Assuming 27 is the age at which I finally become a capital-A Adult — will I abruptly stop finding Fruit Roll-Ups delicious? — this teeny black diamond seems like a perfect choice. 

The thin gold band and minimalist black stone are equal parts refined and edgy. I'm like, 98 percent confident I could manage to successfully hang onto it at least through 28. I think.
