Next time you are wanting to express your emotion with your fingers, you can do it by wearing an emoticon ring. With a little punctuation, these rings recreate all the emoticons we've come to enjoy online. The unique designs basically translate your messenger chatter into designer jewelry you can wear. Called 'punctuation rings', the designs were created by Chao and Eero.

Companies can capitilize on these widely used and understood expressive faces by creating products that use them in ways every consumer understands.
