Wednesday Shake-up: 266th Pope Annoucned

It was the billowing of white smoke from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel that announced the news today, The Roman Catholic Church has named their 266th Pope:  76 year old Jorge Mario Bergoglio. He will be called Francis, and will also be the first non-European leader of the church in more than 1,000 years. Hailing from Argentina, we like the international shake-up coming out of the Vatican today.

Did you know that Sikara & Co. has a ring that we call the Papal ring? Some say it resembles the pope’s hat, while others think it looks like a ring the pope could wear himself. Either way, it’s an awesome design, and one of our favorite pieces from the 2013 collection. Shown above in Aqua Chalcedony, Carnelian and Labradorite ($195) and is also available in Amethyst.
