I’ve seen lots of photos on social media of the new Ring of Change and always wondered what it would feel like to wear it. Turns out it’s actually super comfortable. Designed by Danish jewelry designer Kim Buck, it is striking in its simplicity and elegance. When I first saw it I wondered why no one had invented it before. To be able to choose each day a different bead to wear on your finger is such a fun concept. Here is the ring itself. 

Simply slide any bead on. It is also compatible with Pandora beads. I tried it out with all the brands I collect. With Ohm Beads and Redbalifrog, their hole openings are so big that they slide right off. However, if you put a Trollbead on first, that prevents other beads from falling off and then you can use it with any branded bead. Here it is with the Gold Silver Trace

I also tried it with my Coffee Mug and Mocha beads. Perfect for beads n’ coffee!

The big question is how does it feel and does it get in the way of anything. I had my 12 year old son take photos of me doing some daily activities-playing oboe, playing banjo, grocery shopping and cutting an apple. Nothing was a problem and I even tried conducting for a few minutes so I know I can wear it for work! You don’t even really feel it on but you can gaze down at it to enjoy the bead. 

Here’s the combo I ended up wearing. The new Violet Stripe bead on the ring and the Wise Bamboo, Graceful Sky and Floral Wishes on the bangle. 

As with lots of things, it would be ideal to try it on first, but I found it to fit true to size. I’m looking forward to trying out more beads with this ring. I’m thinking that it’d be fun to make combos with double sets of beads-one on the ring and one on a bangle.
