Shopping service Klarna and stylist to the stars Bea Åkerlund are giving the proverbial finger to antiquated tradition with a new ring collaboration. There’s an ages old wives’ tale that says Leap Day is the one day in four years when a woman should propose to her partner. With this collection of two rings, the duo is defying the sentiment and making a strong statement for getting what you love when you want it, without the influence of outdated rules.
The Bea Åkerlund x Klarna ring collection encompasses two genderless styles: the Knight Finger and Unification. As a stylist to celebrities like Madonna, Beyoncé and Lady Gaga, Åkerlund lends her over-the-top and innovative eye to the collaboration. For its part, Klarna brings a forward-thinking spirit and belief that everybody should get what they love — a point of view that’s reflected in its pioneering of the modern buy-now-pay-later model. The gold vermeil Knight Finger is a statement-making piece that shows off 246 rose pink and four crystal stones in pavè settings. The more subtle Unification Ring touts a single crystal stone on its gold vermeil silhouette. Altogether, the result is a pair of distinct offerings that serve as monuments to getting what you want, whether it’s a wedding engagement, adopting an out-of-the-box sense of style or simply gifting yourself something you love.
Keeping in line with its steadfast commitment in empowerment and creating opportunities for one’s own self, Klarna is donating 100% of the proceeds to Dress for Success®. It’s a fitting partnership, considering the a global not-for-profit organization empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help them thrive in work and in life.
The Bea Åkerlund x Klarna Knight Finger and Unification rings are available for pre-order now exclusively at HBX. They retail for $950 and $500, respectively.
