My precious: This ring may be better than an engagement one
We are all guilty of it. We keep that pesky phone of ours out at dinner or lunch or coffee or are niece’s 1st birthday because, well, we are addicted. It is our lifeline to everything. But soon you may be able to keep that phone in your purse when socializing because of a very special ring. We’re talking Lord of the Rings “my precious!” special.
Ringly, a NY-based startup, has created a ring that connects to your smartphone. It lets you set customized alerts for incoming calls, texts, emails, calendar and app notifications. The ring will vibrate and emit a tiny light so the wearer will see the push, but won’t be as distracted as they would be with a phone. Created by eBay and Etsy alums, Ringly packs powerful, miniaturized technology into stylish rings designed by the team’s jewelry designer and FIT alumna. Check out a video about it here.
The company surpassed its pre-sales goal just eight hours after its launch. “We could not be happier about the excitement around Ringly thus far and want to thank all our customers for their overwhelming support. We’re thrilled to be able to get a Ringly on the fingers of many women this fall,” says Ringly CEO and co-founder Christina Mercando.
Ringly is hopping on the smart jewellery trend except that these designers have made jewellery that people would actually want to wear. It doesn’t look like a piece of eq. uipment. It is beautiful coming in black onyx, rainbow moonstone, pink sapphire and emerald.
Ringly follows the Memi bracelet which is also quite aesthetically pleasing and allows the wearer to get notifications for important phone calls and calendar alerts.
It’s time to get your smart bling on!
