Before taking the stage at a show in Arlington, Texas, on Saturday night (Oct. 17), Taylor Swift took to Instagram to share a photo of an injured thumb. The thumb pictured is wrapped in a bandage with Swift’s lucky number, 13, written on it.

“Band aids don't fix kitchen knife-related injuries,” she quipped, a play on a lyric from her 1989 song “Bad Blood.”

While many followers left “get well soon” messages, many others were fixated on the stylish “TS” ring seen in the photo. Reactions like “I looooooooove that ring,” “I just really need that ring in my life” and “OMG the ring is so cute!!!!!” poured in.

Playing the guitar while she’s waiting for this injury to heal might prove to be a little tricky. On the bright side: If Swift ever considers partnering with a jewelry designer to sell a similar ring to her fans – it looks like there’s plenty of interest.
