Upon meeting feminist figure Gloria Steineim, New York artist Swoon gifted her with a ring in the shape of the internal clitoris. The Instagram caption quickly turns into a biology lesson, with a special note about the organ's surprising size:

OMG I just met Gloria Steinem! So I have her this gift. My friends just made this ring which represents.... disclaimer: it's about to get graphic y'all - the internal clitoris. Raise your hand if you have any idea how actually massive the clitoris is? The little nubbin we are all so familiar with is just the tip, the full thing carries on well inside the body and is quite huge. Who knew? Turns out basically nobody did, till like the 90's. So anyhow @penelopijones have made a ring which anatomically maps the beauty in it's entirety - and when I found myself at a table with Gloria Steinem I took mine right off my finger and have it to her. Thanks lady hero!

Swoon's gift to her "lady hero" is no cheap thrill, though. The sterling silver version will run you $122, while the gold representation will cost you $535.
