Fresh off of the Charlotte Ronson Spring 2008 Runway Show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City, Christine J. Brandt is making her Style 360 Must Have debut with her Firestone Ring.

Product Info: 
The Firestone Ring is made of African black ebony and pyrite. Brandt’s site claims that pyrite (aka fool’s gold) is a stone of protection that helps ward of negative energy, physical danger, anxiety, frustration, and depression. That I’m not so sure about, but hey, the ring is gorgeous and the enitre line, which uses a huge range of materials from adamite to zoisite is not to be missed.
