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.
