As part of the Destination: Istanbul collection for MoMA (Modern Museum of Art New York), jewelery design atelier Ayda Pekin— taking inspiration by everyday Turkish life — created two puzzle ring designs with separate plexiglass pieces that have to be assembled before they are worn. We love the Turkish Bath one, which features accessories used […]
Japanese design studio J.A.P., created this collection of prototype Star Wars rings back in the late 90’s to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the beloved (and by ‘beloved’, I mean Hans Christian Andersen not included) franchise.
You know us, we have a certain fondness for kitschy accessories that hint at, well, a spot of harmless murder. Explains why we dig this double-digit butcher knife ring by Brazilian jewelry designer Raul Souza so much.
Ah, yes. Everything should be compact. Including utility tools. This is one nifty ring crafted from aerospace grade titanium that packs a wallop: it comes with a bottle opener, a straight blade for cutting straight-forward stuff, a serrated blade for cutting tougher things, a saw for cutting plastic and wood… and it even has a tiny comb. The fact that all these tools are extra small makes it sound like it’s a bit of a joke. But you never know when you might need one.
Artist Eleanor Salazar repurposes plastic and other materials into jewellery. My favourite is her series of rings made from billiard balls. All you need to do is choose your ring size and colour. If you have the balls to wear one, that is.
Finally, a ring that lets you carry your love letters where you go instead of some random sparkling rock on your hand. All the I (Thou) Ring by One Origin Jewelry ring asks for is for you to tuck a folded love note in it.

What do you do when you get an invitation from these lovely space invader folks to perch on your hand in the form of silver rings? You hand your damn hand over to signify that you, human, are a willing hostage of the 8-bit kingdom of geeky. Amsterdam-based Frank Tjepkema is the designer behind these crafty rings for his studio Tjep.
There’s love, and there’s war. This wedding ring by Kate Bauman is cast in sterling silver, set with four 1-carat cubic zirconia, and, well, doubles up as a knuckle duster. It’s great for these slightly trying domestic fights that are sure to come. Tip: don’t order matching rings.
Dear Valentine, Pardon me if this sounds a little crass, but if you want a root on the 14th you should give me a stump. More precisely, a Stump Ring from Digby & Iona with our initials graved on it. I’ll be waiting! Love, me.
Cast from actual Keys, these unisex rings by young New York-based designer Kiel Mead are a fun way to celebrate an old car or an apartment. They come in Sterling Silver and we have them for sale through the Lost At E Minor online shop.
Measuring three inches wide by just over two inches tall, Finger Food Party Plates are mini-plates with rings that fit right on your finger. So now you can elegantly chat with a boy or girl, holding a glass of champagne, while in your forefinger there’s a nigiri roll or a tiny burger.
These stylish hoops of bronze have a profound effect on me. I’m seriously left singing If I Were A Boy Beyonce-style whenever I see them. Made by Stannard Inc, William the Brave bronze rings are stunning and the raw look exudes an air of individuality. But the cool thing is that you can actually get […]
