Green fingers: Can a 120 ring filled with living Icelandic moss really draw people in urban areas closer to nature

Gracious, that’s an unusual emerald set in this silver ring, you’re probably thinking.
Lovely colour, but somehow oddly . . . organic. Well, your suspicions are correct.
Designed for ‘people in urban areas to draw them closer to nature’ by Icelandic collective HAF, this ring is filled with living Icelandic moss.
Moss ring: It costs almost as much as a real precious stone, and sheds green fronds
It looks bonkers, costs almost as much as a real precious stone, and sheds green fronds.
I water mine by dunking it into my expresso dregs when I remember, am forever stroking it, and once left it in a pocket for a fortnight — yet it’s still flourishing.
It comes with a wooden stand, so when you’re not wearing it, it becomes the world’s smallest — and sweetest — pot plant.
