Ramiko / Beryl Dingemans / Michelle Chang
I try to use him sparingly but these rings have pushed me over the edge break out the spinning Homer (even better with sound)! That's how excited I am about the "Zoo" collection by Japan's Ramiko (Hiroko Kitabayashi). Woop woop!

CHI Joyería Urbana / Joyería Urbana
In Romance languages, "jewellery" (bijoux, joyas, jóias, etc.) and "game" (jeu, juego, jogo, etc.) have the same Latin root, jocus. This likely did not escape the notice of Argentina's Lucía Mishquila Brichta, creator of these nostalgic, acrylic, analog game rings (including Tetris!). I love, aime, amo them. Check them out through her line, CHI Joyería Urbana.
Another Joyería Urbana, this one from Mexico.

John Garrott / Elise Fauveau / Dian Luo

Chisa Takagi / Tocohana / Lorraine Allan
Nature's great, forests are great, but, sometimes, don't you just think every tree would be improved by a metallic exoskeleton? One look at these pieces by Japan's Chisa Takagi (whose last name, incidentally, means "tall tree") and how could you not?
Spacer ring with soil and plant by Japan's Tocohana (Mayumi Nakura).
Metallic leaves pendant by the UK's Lorraine Allan.
