Can I Interest You in a Spinner?

June 9th, 2008


Not that kind of spinner, you sick little puppy. A spinning ring. For your finger. Intrigued yet?

Well, the whole ring doesn’t spin, just the wavy part that’s laid over the inner band. Being stainless steel, this beaut from Just Men’s Rings will shine until the cows come home, or enough to beat the band, or until the bee’s knees shoot the moon—use whichever old-timey expression you prefer.

The spinning portion’s design is sensible, though perhaps a bit commonplace: a band of three lines intertwining with—surprise!—another band of three lines. It’s what a mediocre art director would draw on a totem pole for the set of a Cowboys and Indians movie. But for this ring, it somehow works.

All designs have historical predecessors, and this one has the Tibetan prayer ring, aka the worry ring. Exhibit A: this braid design spinner. Exhibit B: another one. It’s a fashion statement and an art history lesson: not bad for 22 bucks.
