You sit on the train, reading the newspaper, and something catches your eye: it’s a lady’s hand, with a small bonsai tree growing out of her ring!  You try not to stare and avert your eyes.  Further down you see a man with a pinky ring in the shape of a small alligator’s jaws.  Someone else is donning a stark metallic band with jutting bits of wire poking out.  You look down at your standard round brilliant cut diamond in regular gold mounting…and hide it under your paper.

People of all ages, backgrounds, genders and whatever other classification you can dream up are embarking on a revolution in ring design flaunting.  Three finger bands, towering pillars, functional anomalies: designers are getting very creative, and modish consumers are gobbling it up.  What is prompting this nouveau ring renaissance?  Well, we can speculate and pontificate how trends in mass media and recent socio-anthropologic permutations have cumulatively contributed to this coup d’normal…but really, who cares?  Let’s just look at this cool stuff.
