A man attacked by a seagull, a brave arctic explorer and a lonely nun in a snowstorm might sound like the makings of a quirky series of comics, but those are, in fact, just a few of the miniature scenes found in the 'Fragmented Chronicles' rings.

Created by Hong Kong-based design studio Shannnam, the clear plastic rings feature a tiny landscape or scenario, ranging from comical and charming to sad and touching. As described by designers Chan Oi Yau Riyo and Kwong Ho Sun Howard on their website, each piece exhibits "a glimmer, a touch, a place, a continuity, a dream captured within suspended streams of consciousness," making it incredibly easy to find a connection with the inhabitants of the miniature worlds.

Whether you're searching for the perfect gift that is both sentimental and quirky, or you're just looking to treat yourself, the Fragmented Chronicles rings are a must-see.
