This Swastika Ring from Sears is Strictly For Fashion Purposes

Swastika-ring

Got a hot date tonight? Nothing spells romance like a chunky black swastika.

Billed as an edgy fashion accessory, this giant swastika ring is part of Sears’ “men’s punk rock style” jewelry collection, and is also available from online retailers like Amazon. The product description explains that the rings are to be used solely for purposes of wooing the ladies:

Find exactly what you need when browsing through our new gothic jewelry items. This gothic jewelry item in particular features a Swastika ring thats made of .925 Thai silver. Not for Neo Nazi or any Nazi implication. These jewelry items are going to make you look beautiful at your next dinner date.

Nice disclaimer, Sears. Can we ladies get a side of genocide with that candle-lit dinner?

Update: Sears has responded via Twitter and removed the listing:
