Sears Pulls Swastika Ring From Website

The retailing giant Sears removed a swastika ring offered for sale on its website.

The item was listed under the “men’s punk rock style” jewelry collection.

“This gothic jewelry item in particular features a Swastika ring that’s made of .925 Thai silver,” the item description read. “Not for Neo Nazi or any Nazi implication. These jewelry items are going to make you look beautiful at your next dinner date.”

After consumers called attention to the item, a Sears representative responded via Twitter: “This item is a 3rd party Sears Marketplace product that does not abide with our guidelines and is being removed.”

The item also was for sale on Amazon.com, though it is listed currently as unavailable.

The Jewish parenting website Kveller posted an image of the Sears page with the swastika ring before it was taken down.
