I don’t know why I didn’t come up with this. The Gear Ring. Functional… trendy… interesting… awesome. The Gear Ring is (unfortunately for anyone else out there) patented and made from high quality matte stainless
steel. It’s design actually features micro-precision gears that (no kidding) turn in unison when the
outer rims are spun. What kills me is that I twist my ring on my finger all the time… it just doesn’t do anything cool when I do so. This one does.
While we have no idea if the movement makes it more fragile than a standard piece of silver, platinum or gold, the ring does come with a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer, Kinekt Design (no relation to Microsoft’s Kinect). That’s hard to beat, supposing they stay in business and continue to make cool and innovative products.
Check out the video:
The ring is on sale now and comes in sixteen standard US ring sizes from 5 through 20. That will fit just about anybody from your nephew to King Kong. Kinekt does note that since the Gear Ring is actually wider than average, if you are a half size they recommend ordering the next whole size up.

We’re not new to unique rings. Here’s one we made out of a Dominican peso by hammering it down with a punch and then drilling it out and sanding it. We’ve actually done a few of these (trial and error).
Making a ring that moves, however, involves some serious machining and we tips our hats to Kinekt for pulling it off.
