A simple cocktail ring is no longer enough to start up a conversation. But a full-finger ring? Well, that’s something no one can miss. The trouble is that not all of these are articulated, limiting your basic movement and turning day-to-day tasks into serious challenges. Enter hinged rings! Sure they look like armor for your fingers, but if you’re a warrior princess kind of gal, that just might be your thing.
