Inner Message Ring

PRODUCT STORY
What impression would you like to make on the recipient of one of these handsome, handmade rings?

Designer Jungyun Yoon is turning traditional jewelry inside out by adding raised text and images to the inner surface of her sterling silver rings. The texture is barely noticeable, but after it has been worn for a while, the ring can be removed to reveal its hidden message impressed into the skin. What message would you like to share: "Always"? "Marry me"? A heart? The exterior of each ring is unadorned and hand sanded to a matte finish, disguising the deeper meaning that lies within. Rings come in a unique case made of layered, precision-cut clear and translucent plastic, held in place by inset magnets. Made in Korea.

We love these clever rings, but we're waiting to get the message from our voters on whether we should add them to our assortment! Would you give this unique design to a loved one, or wear it to keep your own mantra close?

too strange. if it makes a mark, it must be too tight/ill-fitting.I would rather just have the sentiment where it can be seen.

I really really really like this. I wear rings all the time and I now have marks from them on the one finger I usually wear them on, and it doesnt hurt at all and it is not uncmfortable. When you wear a ring all the time it makes a mark even though it's the correct size.

I agree with ER- any ring that leaves a mark is ill fitting, and though it looks really cool- it seems uncomfortable.

Hello, Voters! Thank you for all of your great comments. While the letters and symbols inside of the ring are raised, they only touch the skin gently and do not cause any pain.

My worry would be about comfort as well. Even if normal use did not hurt or provide any discomfort, I can only imagine how painful it would be to knock that hand into something, or get that finger pinched.

The type located on the inside of the ring looks as if it would be uncomfortable on the finger. I would not want to purchase a ring of this sort without first trying it on to feel its level of comfort.

Too odd for me. Once I put jewelry on at the jewelry box, it stays on. If I take it off, I may lose it. & really, how long is the mark going to stay on your finger anyway?? I would rather have a pretty ring with the message on the outside.

Thanks for the question, Alyssa. Right now we are considering the ring with a choice of three impressions. A heart symbol, "Always," and "Will You Marry Me?" Which impression do you like best? What other words and symbols would you like to see?
