TMNT plastic rings

You don’t to be a teenage, a mutant, a ninja, or a turtle to wear these kitschy TMNT rings by Etsy seller Pinderella Plugs. The adjustable rings are silver plated, and the turtles are cast from resin. They’re colorful, and the style has a very ’80s vibe. I love it.

harry potter ring 1

If I had to name two symbols that make me think of Harry Potter, they would be the Deathly Hallows symbol and the Boy Who Lived’s lightning shaped scar. This sterling silver ring by Etsy seller Think Up Jewel has both of those elements along with Harry’s spectacles. It’s perfect.

The Deathly Hallows ring is made to order, and turnaround time is 6-8 business days.

valar morghulis ring 1

Arya Stark first learns the phrase “Valar morghulis” from Jaqen H’ghar. It’s High Valyrian and means “All men must die.” The saying is all too appropriate for Game of Thrones since characters drop like flies.

This ring from Silver Lab Creations spells out the famous saying with the word “Valar” on the front of the ring and “morghulis” on the back. It’s made to order so you can input your size and whether you want a sterling silver or gold finish. Turnaround time is 1-2 weeks.

1da5_legion_flight_ring

Are you brave and ready to fight evil? Then you might be worthy of this Legion Flight Ring. The DC Comics’ Legion of Super-Heroes team wears rings like this replica from Think Geek. The snazzy accessory is made from gold plated stainless steel so it’s a lot sturdier than the plastic ring that came with the action figures.

arc reactor ring

If you like Iron Man, this is the ring for you. The latest accessory from Paul Michael Designs features Tony Stark’s arc reactor in a more delicate setting than the Iron Man armor. It’s made from palladium and custom cut light blue sapphires. Yes, you probably need to be as wealthy as Tony Stark to afford it, but the quality and design makes it worth it.

millennium falcon ring

With this new Millennium Falcon ring creation, Paul Michael Designs might erase the line “she might not look like much…” from Star Wars lexicon. Because holy Ewoks, this is a beautiful and clever design. A ring is already the right shape to look like the spaceship, and the cockpit looks like a natural extension. I love that it’s available in three different metals and with different stones.

hobbit ring

Have you heard? Wearable hobbit holes are all the rage these days. Though we’ve seen rings that feature the recognizable green door of Bag End, this teensy tiny sculpted version is something different. Artist Flocature built the home of the Baggins’ from Super Sculpey and then she painted it with acrylics and plopped it onto an adjustable ring. I like to imagine there are super little versions of Frodo and Bilbo inside reading and plotting adventures.

The idea of wearable tech, while fantastic, is nothing new. In fact, it’s centuries old. China Daily shared this picture of a functioning abacus ring that reportedly dates back to the 17th century, during the Qing Dynasty. It’s being manipulated with a needle because the beads are too small for clumsy fingers to handle. The delicate jewelry is smaller than a thumb!

It may be one of the first smart rings. The abacus is a tool used to complete calculations, and even though most people rely on computers and mobile devices to do math for them, the abacus is still used in some parts of the world – perhaps not on such a small scale though.
