60 Ridiculous Rings

From Stoneless Engagement Rings to Gamer Punctuation Jewelry

— September 20, 2012 — Fashion
These ridiculous rings show you that even after thousands of years of humans wearing rings to adorn themselves, there are still new ideas for things to put on fingers. Whether the creative part is adding something in, like reflective mirror rings, or taking something away, like stoneless engagement rings, these rings are doing some cutting-edge things in the world of jewelry design.

Many of the rings can be worn by men as well as women. These rings span from ultra-feminine to hardcore rocker style. Rings with spikes protruding from them not only make you look like a rocker, they also give you a degree of protection. With a big spike on your ring people are far less likely to risk getting into a fist fight with you.

These may be ridiculous rings, but they are seriously stylish nonetheless.
